Side Dishes: Leftover Food News

If you think the James Beard Awards are all about restaurants with white tablecloths, think again. Each year, the foundation pays tribute to a handful of casual restaurants designated as “American Classics.” This year, Al’s French Frys is among the honorees.

The Burlington resto will be celebrated at the awards ceremony, which takes place at Lincoln Center on May 3.

Care about dairy? Head on down to the Burlington Hiltonon Saturday to hear U.S. Secretary of Agriculture Tom Vilsack talk milk. Sens. Bernie Sanders and Patrick Leahy are also part of the “town-hall-meeting”- style discussion, which begins at 10 a.m.

Congrats to the Vermont Brownie Company! Owners Shawna Lidsky and Katherine Hayward defeated Bobby Flay in a brownie “throwdown” that aired last Wednesday on the Food Network.

If you missed it, don’t worry. The network’s all about reruns.

How do you feel about eating GMO foods?

  • I don't understand what the fuss is about. I eat them and I'm fine.
  • As long as they're FDA-approved, I don't mind consuming them.
  • GMOs are in most staple foods, so I'm resigned to eating them.
  • I wish they were labeled so I could make informed choices about when to eat them.
  • I'm concerned about potential long-term health effects of consuming GMOs, which haven't yet been studied.
