Poor Jamie Oliver.
He's just a boy, standing in front of a portly nation, asking it to love him eat better.
And how has America thanked him? By deeming his latest cookbook one of the least healthy tombs of the year. Sort of.
It was announced yesterday that the Physician's Committee for Responsible Medicine released it's annual list of the country's worst cookbooks and Oliver's Meals in Minutes was at the top. The group specifically criticized the nutrition-conscious chef's recipe for a Meatball Sandwich, as it contains "more fat than a Big Mac and more than double the calories, cholesterol, sodium and saturated fat." The offending sandwich calls for ground beef, pancetta, Jarlsberg cheese and ciabatta loaves.
Looks like movie theaters aren't the only ones getting "carried away" these days. No doubt to jack up their sales to un-Godly heights throughout the premiere week for Sex and the City 2, Magnolia Bakery, according to Grub Street, is now offering a Carrie Bradshaw-inspired cupcake - vanilla with pink buttercream frosting.
It's news to no one who lives in New York City that ice cream trucks become something of a fanatical firing squad in the summers; lining up on street sidewalks, riding through neighborhoods, chiming their bells for the hot and bothered to hear and run to in a fussed tizzy, seeking cold salvation from the oppressive heat. Perhaps that is why I was slightly under-whelmed and unsurprised when I read on Grub Street that Ben & Jerry's will be joining the crew of novelty trucks that speckle the city in the spring and summer months. I am surprised, however, that it took them this long.
That’s it. I’ve had it with Grubstreet. They’re all pretentious fools over there. This time they’ve really gone too far, and I won’t stand for it.
Jenny Miller is bearing the brunt of my aggression today, and unfortunately its because she upholds journalistic integrity. The other day on grubstreet, miss Miller wrote about a bar so secret, that the owners don’t even want the address getting out. Sort of like Milk & Honey in a way? Except everybody knows where that is now…
