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.

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!

Re: “Mad Taco Spruces Up, Expands Catering

Wow, I never knew that the Mad Taco owner farms his restaurants' food! That's great to know, thanks for the info, SD food reporters. I'm excited to check out the updated Montpelier location now!

Re: “New Location, Same Great Vibe at the Burlington Winter Farmers Market

Just the name Farmers Market makes me cringe anymore. It's a misnomer. What farmers ? Theses have become craft and specialty food fairs and over priced at that. Even in summer there are few farmers to be found. Give me a good farm stand any day in a country road. These things belong un a mall or school gym.

Re: “Stone Leaf Teahouse and the Art of Roasting

When Stone Leaf first opened I held my breath: the times were tough, economically speaking, and who (other than John Wetzel) would have thought that a tea shop would survive, let alone flourish. But flourish it has. I drink much more coffee than tea, but I love what Stone Leaf is and offers and visit whenever I can. Congratulations on the shop's success, Stone Leaf. And thanks SevenDays for the piece.

Re: “New Location, Same Great Vibe at the Burlington Winter Farmers Market

I'm not sure what "Same Great Vibe" means, but the new location is a huge fail in my book. We went to the first Winter Farmer's Market a few weeks ago and doubt we will return. The ground floor of the Davis Center is not a big open space as needed for a market; instead, it's an irregular-shaped area with just a lot of clutter -- the normal stuff you'd expect to see in a student center that's not set up to host a farmer's market (duh!). And so the vendors have to squeeze themselves into whatever space they can, and on down a hallway that's not nearly wide enough for vendors and patrons, and everyone has to push by eachother this way and that, with the traffic flow not working at all.

Add to that, the parking was a challenge when we went, being unfamiliar with UVM parking rules. The Jeffords lot that we were directed to by signs was full, with a lot of cars just circling around, but we finally did find plenty of open parking just further away.

The University Mall would be a perfect place for an indoor farmer's market. Tons of parking, big wide open spaces for vendors to set up, and lots of stores that would love the extra foot traffic.

Re: “New Location, Same Great Vibe at the Burlington Winter Farmers Market

Thank God. Same great vibe. I don't know what I would have done if the vibe hadn't been great or hadn't been the same.

Re: “Remembering Karen Freudenberger, Founder of Pine Island Farm

I am stunned and overwhelmed with sorrow at this news- her presence was a source of inspiration from the time I first met her at Bryn Mawr College to rediscovering her nearby in VT at a recent gathering of Bryn Mawr alums at Pine Island Farm. My heart goes out to her family and friends and to the many who have been touched by her presence through visionary work here and abroad.
