    Steak or salmon? Try Big Mac or Gordita. The high-end restaurant business is bracing itself for a slowdown as customers opt to save instead of spend. That’s good news for fast-food chains like McDonald’s. In October, sales at the Golden Arches jumped 8.2% globally, thanks in part to their budget-friendly dollar menu. But how far can your dollar go when it comes to taste? We asked Zach Brooks, editor of and founder of, to taste-test the best deals at five fast-food chains with outlets throughout the five boroughs, and dish on his findings. KFC“I love fried chicken.

    Chicago, IL (AHN) - To battle the growing public perception that McDonald's offerings are not healthy, the fast food chain is tapping more mothers as its frontline warriors under the firm's Quality Correspondents program. McDonald's launched the program in 2007 and recently tapped five mothers in the Washington region to be part of the program. The five are among the thousands who responded to a TV ad seeking volunteers to help explain the nutritional value of McDonald meals to the public. "What to Eat" author Marion Nestle, a nutritionist at the New York University, said because of McDonald's size as...

    [Archived Chef's Tables Recipes] Back in the ‘50’s when I was growing up no Christmas was complete without the sweet and spicy smell of gingerbread. An almost intoxicating aroma filled the house and you knew, even as a small child, that it wasn’t long before Christmas eve. If you ever dined in our Main Dining Room you probably noticed the full sized figures of colonial looking men & women and decorative large wooden planks that appear to have the same figures carved in them. What most of our guest don’t realize is that these boards are actual hundred and forty...

    I need advice in establishing a Celebrity chef or television chef ping list. There is an existing food ping list though I'm not sure how active it is. This would not be a place for the exchange of recipes though if that were to happen I wouldn't have an issue with it. The main purpose would be the diversion from more serious matters to discuss television food personalities and news of interest to "foodies": Rachel Ray, Anthony Bourdain, Bobby Flay, Mario Batali, Jacques Pépin, Paula Deen and so on.

    The quest for the perfect tomato began in New Brunswick nearly 50 years ago and ended, for now, in a field south of Tel Aviv, Israel. After eight years of taste tests from chefs and tomato lovers, agricultural scientists at Rutgers University say they have resurrected one of the most delicious Jersey tomatoes ever. The elusive "Ramapo" tomato seed has been reproduced in Israel and 572,000 certified organic seeds were shipped this month to New Brunswick. The Ramapo tomato, named after a New Jersey Indian tribe and developed at Rutgers in 1968, will be back for this summer's growing season...
