Dec 17, 2014 12:57 pm

The Top Googled Recipes And Cocktails Of 2014

List reveals America's shifting tastes
Dec 16, 2014 10:26 am

Earlier today Google released data illustrating their top recipe, cocktail and beer terms for 2014. Not surprisingly, chicken is the top search term. Fried, baked, tetrazzini — it’s a national obsession. But drilling down further into the list reveals that Americans still have an unwavering sweet tooth, are always stumped on the perfect pancake prep and most certainly love a little guacamole (on football Saturday and Sundays at least).

Consumer confidence mirrors wine sales, CEO says
Dec 15, 2014 3:00 pm

There are many ways to gauge how the U.S. economy is doing. You can check out the Dow Jones Industrial Average, for instance, to see how bluechip companies are performing on the stock market. Or, you can look at the U.S. Consumer Price Index for an idea of how much people are spending on goods and services. Or, you can leave those boring analytics to the bean counters and keep an eye on a much more juicy economic indicator: wine consumption.

Are Rising Food Costs Now Scarier Than Terrorism?

Survey finds our eating habits are making us broke
Dec 15, 2014 1:00 pm

Your passion for good food and drink isn't just making you fat. It's also making you broke. Dining out is now the biggest reason that Americans blow their budget, according to a recent survey of U.S. workers. And, eating at home from time to time isn't helping us save much, either. Spending on food and groceries comes in a close second on the shrinking-wallet scale. Perhaps even more striking: the survey also found that food costs are a greater concern than terrorism and ebola.

Hot color will cover up your holiday wine stains
Dec 4, 2014 11:30 am

Pantone is a New Jersey-based company best known for creating a standardized color matching system used in many industries, but primarily printing. They’ve also become famous for rolling out “color of the year” each December for the following 12-month period. Today they announced the 2015 selection, inspired by a famous fortified wine produced in Sicily. Marsala, the color, is a little bit red, a little bit brown and decidedly earthy. One thing it is not is last year's purple.

Shake Shack's daddy is now a cover boy
Dec 3, 2014 10:15 am

A big Wednesday for Shake Shack don Danny Meyer, and it’s not even related to Shake Shack. Yesterday the New York Times deemed his Roman pizza restaurant Marta a big winner — Pete Wells gave him serious praise for the ultra thin crust. And now it looks like he’s on the cover of a magazine — and a magazine people actually read! Bored/ill-prepared Delta flyers at least. Snapping on cufflinks = baller status.
