Re: “Evolution Kitchen Rentable Food Truck Gears Up at Foodaroo

Pretty similar name to Revolution Kitchen, the long-time vegetarian/vegan restaurant in downtown Burlington. Oops!

Re: “Dining on a Dime: A & W Drive-In

Use to go to A&W a lot, but the quality of the food has gone down. I use to be an A&W hop girl decades ago on the Barre-Montpelier Rd. Back then Hamburg was fresh, not frozen, fries were fresh, cut on the spot. The Floats were awesome, not freezer burn. This A&W is the only one left in Vermont. It's said that they can't continue to keep the high quality of this once great A&W chain..

Re: “Dining on a Dime: El Cortijo Taqueria y Cantina — Winooski

$12 for chip, guacamole and salsa? Hardly a deal

Re: “Dining on a Dime: Bluebird Barbecue

Doing a review of a 7 Daisies finalist during the voting period....hmmm...put your thumb on the scales much? Not to mention that the author of this article and the owner of Bluebird are friends. Journalistic integrity.

Re: “Dining on a Dime: Bluebird Barbecue

I think it's finally time to admit that the name of this column needs to change. Even in the beginning, when the dishes reviewed were supposed to be $10 or less (hence the "catchy" title), it was a bit of a stretch.

Re: “Dining on a Dime: El Cortijo Taqueria y Cantina — Winooski

Farmhouse properties should never be in the same headline as ' dining on a dime'. Undermines your credibility.

Re: “Alice Eats: Sarducci's Restaurant and Bar

I have tried to duplicate their recipe for Polenta al Forno. Mine is delicious but I would love to have their sauce recipe.

Re: “New Food Market Coming to Burlington's Old North End

Seriously , what is it about the Old North End and 7Days ? Does the opening of every single restaurant , organization or store there have to be covered ? I don't get it . There are so many other places, people and things to cover .

Re: “Vandana Shiva Talks Poison Cartel, Farmers' Rights and Ecofeminism

Terence Bradshaw, farmers have been terribly misled by USDA and land-grant universities. It is NOT the fault of hard-working farmers that they use poison seed, poison to kill weeds, and so on. It is the profit-driven system that has created a system where farmers work so hard and actually harm the earth that they love! Farmers have been misled! You write of 'consumer risk' and 'safety to workers' as if the risk to human bodies was the only harm done by chemical farming. What about the risk to insects? to birds? to diversity? What about the soil, which as a living organism keeps us all alive? Chemical farming is death to our very soil! And it is unnecessary, because more food can be produced without chemicals than with them, if one does not rely on mono-cropping.

Re: “Vandana Shiva Talks Poison Cartel, Farmers' Rights and Ecofeminism

It should be possible to have a discussion about sustainable agriculture without constructing straw men and resorting to hyperbole and pejorative. Farmers and those of us that spend our careers supporting them are solving problems while feeding us all.

"......The agricultural systems that produce our food are much refined from the 1950s and 1960s when the conflation of modern farming and cheap, effective, and, yes, often dangerous pesticides combined to rapidly increase food supply and security in the U.S. and worldwide. Fixation on chemicals from 60 years ago blinds us to the incremental progress that has transformed the food supply in that time. Denigrating important tools as poisons ignores the protections that have been developed that have increased pesticide safety to workers by several orders of magnitude while essentially eliminating consumer risk from pesticide residues in our food supply. Our farmers and those of us that support them in their efforts deserve better, and the consumers that rely on the safe and abundant food supply available to them deserve facts, and not fear-based messaging."

Re: “Rising in Vermont: Backdoor Bread Launches With a Pop-Up Sale

The bread looks burnt . I'm sure for many that warrants a higher price . Perhaps my palate is not sophisticated enough to appreciate this . I wonder if this a case of the emperor's new bread .

Have you tried applying for space at the Rutland Farmers Market? I can see your bread doing very well down here!

Re: “Hissho Sushi Arrives at City Market's Two Stores

Man I wish City Market had just been a better partner to Shinkjuku Station. I loving having them on North St, but miss the convenience of getting their sushi at City Market. CM could have avoided all of this and not had to get a chain from NC to come in.
