A Burglarized Bakery Put the Suspect's Picture on Cookies So Locals Could Help ID Him

  Thanks to the bakers' creativity and a free cookie promo, the thief has since been identified. By  Jelisa Castrodale   May 12, 2021 Canfora Bakery has a longstanding reputation in  Milwaukee , Wisconsin for being a go-to spot for freshly baked breads and sub  sandwiches , for hot ham and rolls, and for its selection of  Italian cookies  and other sweets. But now it's getting a lot of attention for a limited-edition menu item that the bakery owners probably wish they never had to make in the first place. According to  the  Milwaukee Journal Sentinel , a man wearing a dark hoodie and a knit beanie pried the door locks open and helped himself to the cash drawer before making his escape. When Canfora's owners, Eric and Karen Krieg, got over the shock of being burgled, they came up with a clever way to try to ID the subject.  They scrolled through the footage from their security cameras, found the clearest image of the alleged burglar's face, and then printed it out on edi

The Not So Secret History Of The Drive-Thru

Dining out got a new look in 1948, thanks to a 100-square foot burger shack perched next to a circular Baldwin Park, California, driveway. There, five cooks worked behind glass walls assembling take-out meals for motorists, lured by the a sign assuring “NO DELAY” and a restaurant name that promised exactly what it delivered: In-N-Out. There are a few claimants for the first fast food eatery to feature a true drive-thru, but In-N-Out Burger’s first restaurant, with its intercom ordering system and its lack of both inside seating and outside parking was likely the first to offer the complete drive-thru package.  Where Did Drive-Thru Dining Begin? Before the drive-thru, though, came the drive-in, a type of restaurant where customers ate their meals on the premises without leaving their cars. The drive-in concept was first popularized by a Texas chain of eateries called the Pig Stand, whose first drive-in opened on a highway connecting Dallas and Fort Worth in 1921. Customers would pull in

By  Jelisa Castrodale   We're already a month-plus into spring and in Maine, spring isn't just about April showers (rain or snow) or May flowers: it also marks the start of the state's seaweed harvest.  According to  the Associated Press, Maine is  the  spot for the United State's seaweed farming industry, and this year already looks like one for the record books.  Atlantic Sea Farms, which works with more than two dozen seaweed farmers, told the outlet that it expects this year's briny crop to tip the scales at more than 800,000 pounds, which almost doubles last year's harvest of 450,000 pounds—a state record at the time.  Over the past several years, Maine has moved from collecting wild seaweed to farmed varieties, and the annual harvests keep getting bigger. In 2018, the total haul of farmed seaweed was around 54,000 pounds, then grew to 280,000 pounds in 2019. A proje

Vegan Chocolate Custard Recipe

Office Return-To-Work Plans Could Make Or Break Some Restaurants' Business

Amelia Lucas Employers across the country are crafting plans to bring workers back to the office as Covid-19 vaccination rates rise and pandemic restrictions ease. Those decisions could have an outsize impact on restaurant sales for businesses located near city centers and office buildings, according to celebrity chef Ming Tsai. "We don't know the new normal," Tsai said at CNBC's Small Business Playbook conference. "Are half the people going to come back to work and the other half are going to stay at home, or is it two-thirds? Whatever it is, it greatly affects restaurants that rely on the lunch business, because right now there's none. ... It relies on happy hour and, of course, on dinner." Tsai is the host and executive producer of the TV cooking show "Simply Ming" and owns the Boston restaurant Blue Dragon.

The Growing Problem Of Pesticide Resistance

  BY  BÁRBARA PINHO 6 APRIL 2021 Weeds and other plant pests can no longer be controlled by chemicals as easily as they could. Bárbara Pinho talks to the scientists finding solutions Fleming first called it ‘mould juice ‘. Returning from vacation, the Scottish bacteriologist saw peculiar blobs of mould in his Petri dishes  of Staphylococcus . There were no bacteria around these spots; it appeared as if ‘mould juice’ had cleared the way. It did, and it got a sophisticated name afterwards – penicillin, the first antibiotic. Penicillin was mass-produced in 1941, yet nature fought back soon after. In 1942, penicillin-resistant  Staphylococcus aureus  was discovered. Today, rapid bacterial evolution and cross-resistance to multiple antibiotics raise fears of a world where antibiotics no longer work. Multiple public campaigns and initiatives have taken conversations of antibiotic resistance everywhere. However, another resistance-based threat is lurking right under our noses, literally on ou
