Food from Foraging Feeds for Free

Wednesday, June 13th, 2012

Many teens heading home from school these days are sidestepping sticky purple patches on the sidewalk, cursing as the red and black squishes under their sandals and into their toes. What to make of this colorful mess? Jam! Compote! Muffins! Most anything, in fact, that you could make with a blueberry. The sticky patches are from mulberries, fruits that grow prolifically in June. Often, they are free for the picking in many neighborhoods, even in New York City.

As Serious Eats points out, summer brings a wealth of berries, fruit and greens growing wild in public. And they’re all free–if you know what you’re looking for and where to look.

Fun and Food Trends Predicted for 2012

Friday, December 23rd, 2011

Have a hankering for couscous, olives, cardamom and all things Moroccan? How about some brick-oven-baked Neapolitan pizza topped with greens from a nearby rooftop. You’re not alone. These trends, and more, make up some of The Daily Meal’s top 16 food trends of 2012. Among them: more food halls like Eataly (see our Video of the Day, left), Miami taking Las Vegas’ spot as the best bet for foodies, and the reinvention of all things fast food, as restaurants figure out whether they’re pitching healthful or fattening fare.
