Choice Bites 9.30.10

Beef carpaccio from Arby's? Osso Bucco from Burger King? Coq au Vin from Bojangles? Yes, yes, and yes. You can find it all at Fancy Fast Food.

Want to know more about Joe Bastianich, son of Lidia, partner to Mario Batali, and judge to Gordon Ramsay? Me, neither. But there's a piece on him in the New York Times.

Ack! Real Housewife of New Jersey Teresa Giudice has a deal for a second cookbook. What's this world coming to?

When I was a kid, one could get a sandwich with a side of "Saratoga chips" at Hutzler's lunch counter. I always thought that potato chips were named thusly because of the store's relative proximity to Saratoga Street. In actuality, the favorite snack food was apparently invented in Saratoga Springs, NY. The NY Times has the original recipe, plus an update.

I'm not at all surprised by the school lunches in France. In fact, I'd guess that most developed countries outside North America feed their kids better school lunches than we do.
