We Have Cluck’n Mooed

Chuck Zimmerman Leave a Comment

After bringing Cluck’N Moo Burgers to your attention recently I got a chance to try them out on the grill. I had some apprehension based on the description but, hey, I’m willing to give something new a try. So, I thawed a box of four and Cindy and I tried them last night. I topped them with some seasoning before …

Would You Cluck’n Moo

Chuck Zimmerman 2 Comments

Cindy brought this to my attention. Cluck’n Moo Beef and Chicken Burgers. They say that their burgers are grass fed beef and chicken, humanely raised, antibiotic and hormone free and gluten free. Hmmm. That description is enough to make me not want to try them. But if you put enough ketchup, mayo, mustard, lettuce, tomato and onion on them it …

Jamie Johansen Leave a Comment

Celery is a staple ingredient in most kitchens; in fact it’s one of the three pillars of the “holy trinity” of cooking (the other two are onions and carrots) but it’s rarely used in sweet applications. That is, until now. To celebrate celery and the vegetable’s versatility, Duda Farm Fresh Foods invites cooks to enter the “Sweet Celery Bake-Off” and …

Chuck Zimmerman Leave a Comment

The live streamed Food Dialogues events get all the publicity when they take place with high profile moderators and panelists. However, there’s a lot of work going on “behind the scenes.” In Chicago recently that work included a regular meeting of the U.S. Farmers and Ranchers Alliance Communications Committee. I visited with two members of the committee. First up is …
