The label will initially be available exclusively at upmarket London department store Fortnum & Mason. It will subsequently appear on cans throughout the UK from October.

Fortnum & Mason was the first UK stockist of Heinz Cream of Tomato Soup in 1910 and, as part of the week-long centenary celebrations, a unique Heinz Cream of Tomato Soup menu will be on offer at the store’s Gallery restaurant.

The menu, created by the head chef Damon Shore, will offer four courses inspired by Cream of Tomato soup, let’s see… Leer más “Heinz to put 100-year-old label on Cream of Tomato soup”

The Lunch Interview: 10 Ways to Survive a Full Plate of Anxiety

If you are new to the job search or a recent college graduate, it is highly likely that you’ll be invited to interview over a meal – breakfast, lunch or dinner. If so, you may (with good reason) be nervous. Your potential employer is interested in getting to know you better, anxious to see how you behave in a public setting and lastly, hoping that you will meet their high expectations.

Before you get too anxious about which fork to use, this etiquette refresher will help. My colleagues and I have witnessed some of the poorest manners by some of the most well- qualified candidates. For example, there was the candidate who brought her own breakfast to the “breakfast interview” and confused the table when she declined to order from the menu. It all made sense when she brought the muffin out of her purse, and placed it on the plate to eat after we’d all ordered breakfast. There is the story about the almost-CEO that talked constantly with his mouth full of food, the woman who reapplied her lipstick twice, and the young man texting while others were talking at the table. Given these examples, I am going to remind my readers of good etiquette: [Más…]

Burger King Courts Controversy With Mock Mimosa


– Noreen O’Leary
Burger King‘s test of a non-alcoholic mimosa as part of a new “brunch” menu is drawing concern from child advocates and other watchdog groups.

In select markets in Florida and Massachusetts, BK is advertising the availability of brunch featuring specialty items like a ciabatta breakfast sandwich—and a variation of the traditional brunch drink. In this case, the faux mimosa is a mixture of orange juice and Sprite, instead of the usual O.J. and champagne.

“This normalizes to children at a young age the idea that drinking is fine to do, and something we do everywhere,” said Michele Simon, research and policy director for the Marin Institute, a watchdog group.

Susan Linn, director of Campaign for a Commercial-Free Childhood, said she would have less of a problem if the mimosa contained actual alcohol, because at least then it would be aimed at adults.

“It’s inappropriate for a family restaurant to be serving drinks that mimic the act of consuming alcoholic beverages. It serves as a message to kids that if you want to feel grown up, you should drink alcohol,” she said.

Simon, from the Marin Institute, cited BK’s decision earlier this year to sell beer at a South Beach, Fla., location and wondered if the faux mimosa is another step toward the chain offering alcoholic drinks in the future.

BK provided this statement: “Burger King is always looking for ways to offer innovative, great tasting menu items to our guests at breakfast and the BK Mimosa is no exception. The idea of mimosas and brunch often go hand-in-hand and this non-alcoholic beverage is a unique way to enhance our morning beverage offerings. The entire adult-facing brunch menu is currently in test and as such nothing is finalized. Upon completion, we will evaluate results and move forward as appropriate.”

SoupCycle


We’ve seen bicycles used to deliver a variety of products in recent months, including groceries, farm produce and laundry. The latest spotting? Organic soup, made from locally grown produce and delivered each week to subscribers.

Three soups are typically on the menu in any given week at SoupCycle. Consumers who live or work in the Portland, Ore., company’s delivery area begin by checking out the selections for the following week and placing their order by midnight on Friday; rustic bread, salad and dressing are also available. With a list of subscribers in hand, SoupCycle then buys the necessary produce from local farmers. On Monday it cooks up those ingredients into delectable soup, and then on Tuesdays it begins its weekly deliveries, with a different delivery day for each area. Pricing ranges from USD 18 for a quart of soup plus bread and salad, which will serve one or two people, to USD 45 for quantities that can serve six; items can also be ordered a la carte. A USD 3 delivery charge applies for orders under USD 18; otherwise, delivery is free. Each of SoupCycle’s trailers can carry some 40 soup containers, 40 bread loaves and 20 salads at once, it says.

Since SoupCycle first launched about a year and a half ago, it has delivered more than 10,000 orders of soup, spent USD 33,000 with local farmers and saved 3,000 gas-powered miles by using bicycles instead. Some 150 subscribers now enjoy its weekly deliveries. One to emulate locally for some piping-hot profits of your own…? 😉 (Related: Sustainable baked goods by weekly subscription.)
