Food for Thought is a locally owned natural food store that’s been in business since 1971, so they know what they are doing in the healthy food department.</p> Fri, 27 Jul 2012 10:00:00 +0000 Tanya Tandoc 3156 at http://kmuw.org Restaurant Review: Delish Deli Restaurant Review: Lalo's http://kmuw.org/post/restaurant-review-lalos <p></p> Fri, 13 Jul 2012 10:00:00 +0000 Tanya Tandoc 2560 at http://kmuw.org Tomato Time! http://kmuw.org/post/tomato-time <p style="color: rgb(51, 51, 51);">Last year was a miserable year for gardeners and produce lovers.&nbsp; Everything dried up and died, dashing our hopes for juicy BLTs, sweet cucumber salads and fried zucchini blossoms. I&rsquo;m a pathetic gardener and notorious killer of plants, but even master gardeners watched their efforts shrivel up and waste away in the brutal heat.</p> Fri, 29 Jun 2012 10:00:00 +0000 Tanya Tandoc 1553 at http://kmuw.org Tomato Time! Celebrity & Chef Cookoff http://kmuw.org/post/celebrity-chef-cookoff <p style="color: rgb(51, 51, 51);">I was on a judging panel for the Orpheum&rsquo;s annual &ldquo;Celebrity and Chef Cook-off&rdquo; a few days ago. I have graduated from contestant to judge in the last few years, and I have to say that judging is no less stressful, but it is less sweaty, and I smell better when it&rsquo;s all over. As a general rule, I dislike cooking competitions, particularly the ones on TV, but the live ones are exciting, with ingredients flying around, and the smell and sizzle and quiet cursing just adding to the party.</p> Fri, 15 Jun 2012 19:23:25 +0000 Tanya Tandoc 748 at http://kmuw.org Celebrity & Chef Cookoff Tanya's California Food Vacation http://kmuw.org/post/tanyas-california-food-vacation <p style="color: rgb(51, 51, 51);">I have just returned from a wonderful vacation to Sebastopol, California, in the heart of Sonoma County. My dance partner Marta and I went up for a huge bellydance event called Tribal Fest. We&rsquo;ve been before, so we knew the food would be great, but the ante had been upped since were there last. I have never been anywhere where everything was so fresh and delicious. Even the rest stops had organic offerings, perfumed strawberries, and gluten-free cookies. It was like being on another planet.</p> Fri, 01 Jun 2012 10:00:00 +0000 Tanya Tandoc 1279 at http://kmuw.org Food Insecurity http://kmuw.org/post/food-insecurity <p>I am thankful every day that I am able to afford to buy the food I want to eat. I haven&rsquo;t always had that luxury. I ate a lot of beans and tortillas when I was in my 20s, and have had to make the choice between gasoline and groceries many times. My financial situation has improved considerably since then, but I know what it&rsquo;s like to be worried about food.</p> Fri, 18 May 2012 10:00:00 +0000 Tanya Tandoc 1278 at http://kmuw.org Food Insecurity
