In November 1999 Joey Allaham opened the doors to The Prime Grill. He had one goal in mind – to elevate the kosher dining experience. He wanted to create a sophisticated ambiance with superior food for each diner. He is a fourth generation butcher and he used his knowledge of meat and taste to design his restaurants. They each represent a distinct passion of his. The Prime Grill highlights Joey’s passion for meat, Solo encompasses the American flavors he enjoys, and Prime KO shares his love of fresh fish and Japanese cuisine.

There is now a fourth “Prime” location, Prime Butcher Baker. “BB Prime” is located on Manhattan’s Upper East Side at 1572 Second Avenue. The design is fresh and modern, but most importantly warm and inviting.  The Prime Hospitality Groups restaurants can now be brought straight to your door. This is the new generation of gourmet shopping; you will be able to shop among the finest cuts of meat, fish, delicious home-style foods, and freshly baked pastries and breads.

An analysis by Italian experts shows that the more individuals are informed by magazines, TV and the internet, the more they stick to the Mediterranean diet, one of the healthiest diets in the world. It has long been thought that the opposite was true, that media was responsible for poor diets and the rise in consumption of fast foods.

This is the conclusion of a study performed by the Research Labs at the Fondazione di Ricerca e Cura “Giovanni Paolo II” in Campobasso. One thousand individuals took part in this study.

In December 2011 Coca Cola alerted the FDA that it found low levels of fungicide in its own orange juice, and in that of their competitors. This specifically affected the orange juice and concentrate produced in Brazil. After this announcement, Tropicana tested its own orange juice and also found low levels of this dangerous fungicide, but that it was at a level that was below federal safety regulations.

The FDA has halted foreign imports of orange juice while further tests are being carried out. The FDA will deny entry to any juice that tests show have 10 or more parts per billion of the fungicide carbendazim.

Häagen-Dazs in Israel Loses Rabbinical...

Who doesn’t love Häagen-Dazs ice cream? It may be one of the most expensive around, but you do get what you pay for. Little else can compare. Here in the USA Häagen-Dazs ice cream carries the OU-D certification.

Häagen-Dazs in Israel has lost its official kashrut license, due to the fact that it is made with unsupervised liquid milk, instead of a powder. In Israel a product that uses unsupervised milk is not allowed to carry an official hechsher – symbol of certification – as all milk used in these products must be supervised from the time of milking onwards. There has been no recent change in the manufacturing of this ice cream, and General Mills Israel says that the ice cream has always been produced in this manner. The fact that it uses liquid milk and not milk powder is what gives it that superior taste and texture. Powdered milk seems to be more acceptable, because there is a less of a chance that it has been tampered with.

A growing number of supermarkets are hiring companies to evaluate the foods they sell with a ranking system that will help consumers make informed decisions.  King Soopers, a division of Kroger, uses the ratings from one of the larger companies, Nuval, in all of their stores and even have hired dietitians on staff to help their consumers.  You will find the nutrition score right next to the price.

Guiding Stars is another leading company offering a ranking system that provides stars for the food, three stars signifying the best foods.  While Nuval uses a point system, where 100 is the best.  At the same time the governemnet is deciding whether they should implement this type of rating system to be displayed with calories, sat fat, trans fat, sugar and sodium on the front of packages instead of or in addition to on the back.  Currently they are evaluating the research before the next step will be taken.

It’s the beginning of the new year, and everyone has predictions for what will be trendy in food this year.

Huff Post Foodie Rozanne Gold says that entertaining pot luck style will be big this year – she calls it “kibbutz-style entertaining”. She also says that locally grown food is becoming hip and trendy. She also predicts the end of the cupcake bubble – but I am in denial about that one. Spices will be front and center – especially new spice blends.
