Re: “Making a Case for Saturated Fats

In the 1960s, scientists at Harvard University were bribed by the sugar industry to produce counterfeit studies wrongly linking saturated fat with heart disease. Diabetes and obesity rates have since then quadrupled!

Switch back to full-fat dairy products such as butter and whole milk, instead of denurtured, tasteless and undatisfying products like margarine and semi-skimmed 'milk'. Margarine is basically poison and is GREY before it's dyed yellow! Use saturated fats for cooking as these are extremely heat stable - unlike toxic solvent-extracted 'vegetable oil' which creates cancer-causing aldehydes at high temperatures.

The 'Noosk"? You're kidding, right?

Their website does not include a menu or phone number. Any clues?

Re: “Sam Lai Serves Up Chinese Cuisine in the Old North End

Best Chinese in the Burlington area, hands down. His General Tsos helped me graduate from Burlington College 6 years ago! I no longer live in Vermont but I am always seeking out Chinese as high quality as Lai's. So far nothing anywhere has come close. Keep it up! Best of luck and I'm excited to see what happens in the future!

Re: “2016: The Year in Beer

Upper Pass is a great new nano brewery; however the beer you included is First Drop, not One Drop.

Re: “2016: The Year in Beer

Simple Roots opened a tasting room in the NNE this summer. As a new resident of the neighborhood I'm pretty stoked about that.

Nice to see the bottle of Junior in the shot. I'm guessing it was enjoyed. Cheers.

Re: “Cheers to Foodie Feats and Frenemies of 2016

Agreed. These meat and potatoes themed-articles make VT seem like a crusty relic, *not* a thought leader in food trends. In NYC, LA, PDX, Europe, and almost everywhere else, plant-based restaurants are trending up and up and up.

Re: “Sam Lai Serves Up Chinese Cuisine in the Old North End

I've always found China Express 2 to be one of the better Chinese food joints in the area. I'm definitely intrigued by the traditional cuisine from Fujian, and I imagine many others would be as well. Look forward to sampling some of those dishes when Mr. Lai gets the food truck business underway! Or, in the mean time, perhaps add a special home-cooked menu one day a week? Could keep things interesting for the locals (and the chef!) while the college kids are out of town.

Re: “2016: The Year in Beer

No mention of 1st Republic opening in Essex. Making great beers and a home brew shop too.

Re: “Mad Taco Spruces Up, Expands Catering

I love the seitan burrito in Waitsfield and the yam burrito in MontP. Now if only Mad Taco would come to Brattleboro! We have lots of open storefronts and no taquerias. Please!
