We've been craving scallops, big time.

We got educational this week. We read some studies about wine and plant-based diets, watched a questionable documentary and got a brief history lesson about the grains of North America. We also learned all about a funky little dish called funazushi from Japan. We’re also very excited to have scallops on the grill, to be deep-frying some pasta and packing a picnic with a cheesy Spanish tortilla in tow. All that and more on this week’s Hot Topics.
