Last week's leftovers: Week of 9/13/09

Norman E. Borlaug, Nobel Peace Prize winner and "Father of the Green Revolution" died this week.  Read a little about his life and work here.

On a much more trivial note:

I tried a great recipe for colourful carrots, which are in plentiful supply at farmers markets right now, from the latest issue of Food & Drink. I'll post a link to the recipe once it's up on the LCBO website (recipes are always posted an issue behind).

Conviction Kitchen is the worst, most exploitative food reality show I have ever seen, and to make matters worse it's Canadian!  

I got the inside scoop that Pascale's Ice Cream is experimenting with a baseball-inspired flavour that will feature beer-flavoured ice cream, red-skinned roasted peanuts and chocolate-covered pretzels.
