Food News…

21 Jul

Part of my job at work is to go through the news and pick out articles relate to what we do at work. Today I was going through the news and noticed a lot of news on food. I though these articles might be interesting, take a look!

imageToday the Financial Post has published an article about a lawsuit that MacDonald’s is facing in California. A U.S. district judge ruled that the case couldn’t be argued in federal court. Federal court is seen to be more pro corporate defendants. The lawsuit is about MacDonald’s using toys to advertise to children. This is seen as a huge problem as it helps get kids hooked on fast food, which can lead to childhood obesity.



Good news for all of the beer drinkers in Ottawa. The Mill Street Brewery’s newest brewpub is set to open in Ottawa this fall. Ottawa City council has approved a zoning change to allow for beer to be brewed at the new location.

Earlier this year there was a huge fire in New Edinburgh. (if you don’t remember check this out) Unfortunately the fire destroyed the location of the awesome Epicuria. Fortunately the business has been able to survive and is planning to come back to their old Beechwood location after everything is fixed up. If you can’t wait for that, check out their temporary location at 112 Nelson St.

If you live in Vanier and want to be a member of the community garden, you better get on the waiting list! Your Ottawa Region has published an article about the Vanier community garden. In their second year of operation, demand is high and the plants are blooming. The only problem is the beetles!

I had one more article but the link wouldn’t work. It was about the upcoming Herbfest. In its 16th year, Herbfest is all about herbs, gardening, cooking and living a healthy lifestyle. The popular Chef Cook-off, boasting three esteemed local chefs, uses audience members as judges. If you’re looking for something to do this Sunday, between 9:00am to 5:00pm, check out Herbfest at 3840 Old Almonte Road.
