Chicken shit: Seriously? According to Slashfood's Sarah LeTrent (who got it from the New York Post) a former finance director at J. P. Morgan has reportedly spent the last few years trying to crack KFC's 11 secret herbs and spices. He may be close. For frick's sake, that's what a Wall Street exec's been expending brain power on? Knocking off Original Recipe?
Colon tickler: Last week at Becks & Posh, Sam was going all tingly over gut health -- namely, over Eatwell Farm's probiotic fizzy drinks, scored at the Saturday Ferry Plaza market. Lacto-fermentation, refillable "kanteen" (priced like a decent Syrah), and what Sam calls "muted fruit accents, gentle effervescence and [a] softly tingling aftertaste" - similar, apparently, to what happens to a bottle of Odwalla left on the kitchen counter a couple of days. Dee-lightful!
