Kitchen Think: This Week’s Most Interesting Food News


Ah… let’s see, this week we’ve got something for everybody: Prince Harry (naked) on a wine bottle, a video of a really cool way to separate eggs and it’s never too early to start your Christmas shopping!!

But first, this: The winner of the Texas State Fair’s Big Tex Choice Awards for outstanding Fair Food were announced. Deep fried, wrapped in bacon and topped with sugar (c’mon, what’d you expect?).

The Queen may be ticked off, but Sheldon Wines, based in Cotswold, England, thinks Prince Harry’s naked hijinks are perfect for the label of their “Royal Blush” Rose wine.

I know it’s September, but Mama TRULY believes it’s never too early to start your Christmas shopping… especially if you’ve got a couple of foodies on your list. Take a look…

And finally this: a super cool way to separate an egg. Doesn’t look particularly sanitary, but heck, the kids will have a blast trying it… just make them clean up if it doesn’t work!

Have a great weekend!
