Brian Sheehan dishes on what's hot and trending in the world of all things food and drink for Wednesday, July 20, 2016.
Today’s first course?
Local police deputies were shocked last week when they paid for a meal at Lucky Teriyaki in Sedro-Wooley, Washington, and were told to never come back. The owner of the restaurant has since apologized to the Skagit County Police Department, calling the seemingly loaded request a mere language barrier problem. The incident occurred last Thursday during a normal meal at the restaurant. Four deputies were told that customers didn’t want to eat with cops and to “spread the word to other police departments in the area.” The police officers said they have since buried the hatchet, but supporters of the deputies said they would still refuse to eat there.
In less than three weeks, two Barolo vineyards have reported hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of wine as missing — and the same thieves may be behind both heists. The suspects broke into the Cordero di Montezemolo winery June 25, and stole 250 cases of wine worth more than $100,000. Then, the Armando Parusso winery reported a similar burglary July 13, this time involving 120 cases of wine worth $112,000. Both vineyards have updated their security systems.
The latest rainbow-colored food creation comes from The Naughty Churro, a Los Angeles churro pop-up. Owner Nick Fasone and his wife developed a cotton candy churro ice cream sandwich, which is topped with edible glitter and butterflies for some extra flair. The cotton candy churro ice cream sandwich will make its debut tomorrow at the 626 Night Market in Arcadia, California.
That’s today’s daily dish, thanks for watching. Stop by tomorrow for another helping.
