    Amy’s Kitchen says its food is made with ‘love.’ Some at the factory say the job has left them injured.

    When Ines De La Luz showed up for work at the Amy’s Kitchen factory in Santa Rosa, California, wearing an arm brace, prescribed after she couldn’t move her hand at the end of a fast-paced shift making frozen burritos in July 2020, she says a supervisor ordered her to remove the brace and return to the production line.  It was the start of a 1½-year ordeal that would send her back and forth to a doctor who she says hesitated to give her tougher work restrictions, and eventually to a new job in the factory disinfecting the cafeteria, alongside other

    New Year’s culinary resolutions for the kitchen | Food & Cooking

    JON BENNION for Lee Montana Newspapers The ads start in November sometimes. They inundate us after Christmas. They are a constant reminder that many people want to make changes to how and what they eat. They are the diet advertisements. A change in your diet can be just the right thing you need for 2022. Maybe it’s cutting calories, zeroing out carbs, or adding more fruits and veggies into your daily routine. There is no shortage of options or pitches being made to you right now.

    Vegan Raspberry Brownie Ice Cream Bars | Kitchen Vignettes for PBS

    I often get requests for recipes that are less reliant on butter & eggs, and that are gluten-free, so I wanted to come up with a fun plant-based recipe that would be refreshing for these sweltering heat waves we’ve been having, and also gluten-free. (And not require an ice cream maker since I don’t have one!) On hot days, I find myself reflecting more than ever on the connection between what we put on our plates and the climate crisis we find ourselves in. There’s no question that agriculture and the transportation of food across long distances are major contributors

    Cooking With Coya creator Lyncoya Ilion finds comfort in kitchen

    Most of us have experienced the comfort a meal provides during the mourning process. For Brown Deer resident Lyncoya Ilion, food was a lifeline during a tragic time and a coping mechanism that led to a second career and connected her to a supportive community of fans. When her 19-year-old son, Michael Terrell, was killed in December 2019, Ilion turned to food, but she wasn’t eating through grief, she was managing it through cooking. “My son wasn’t committing a crime or anything like that, but he was shot,” Ilion recalled.   “I was suicidal. I have three adult kids and grandchildren,

    In the Kitchen: A Cooking Lesson – Lebanese Style

    One of the unexpected benefits of writing a local food column is the number of people I have met who enjoy cooking as much as I do. People have a passion for food and especially their cherished family recipes. Food is a universal language and foods from our past or from our cultural heritage are things we can all understand. We all have vivid “food memories.” I do not remember much about my maternal grandmother but I can distinctly recall that her house always smelled like chocolate chip cookies. Food memories can be powerful reminders of our past and connections

    What’s a ghost kitchen? A food industry expert explains | Food and Cooking

    The co-founder of a takeout business called The Bussdown plates a dish at the ghost kitchen he cooks out of in Oakland. Stephen Lam/The San Francisco Chronicle via Getty Images While the phrase “ghost kitchen” may conjure up images of haunted houses, the reality is a bit more mundane. Ghost kitchens are food prep operations with no waiters, no dining room and no parking lot – really, no public presence whatsoever. But on food delivery apps, they’re alive and well. In short, ghost kitchens are physical spaces for operators to create food for off-premises consumption. And on apps like Grubhub

    Boston home cooks can now sell food from their own kitchen under a new law

    On March 31, the Boston City Council passed a law that will allow home cooks to make and sell food from their own residential kitchens. The law goes into effect at the end of April. Before you start firing up the oven and making lasagna in bulk, here’s what you should know: The law covers “cottage foods,” which are non-temperature controlled goods that don’t easily spoil — items like tortillas, granola, and dried pasta. Homemade yogurt? Sushi? Don’t even think about it. According to WBUR, councilor Julia Mejia, who sponsored the measure, said that “This ordinance is not for
