(KUTV) — Calling all witches and wizards, a new "magical" food truck has come to town. The Butter3eer and Nachos Food Truck serves a "Harry Potter" themed drink: butterbeer. The butterbeer does not contain alcohol. A post on the food truck's Facebook page described the drink as, "A HP themed drink if you've never had it at Universal, u are missing out. But I've invented a version that's just as good... or better some people say."
At Justine, which opens on January 25 in New Orleans, the James Beard Award-winning chef channels the romance of Paris.
While helping cook supper for 45 guests at the local homeless shelter on a freezing night in January, I thought of Iron Chef. You know the show: Two renowned chefs in kitchens on stage receive boxes of ingredients they must use to create a gourmet, multicourse meal. Right before the timer starts, they're given a surprise ingredient on which to base their dinner. Salmon cheeks? Kohlrabi? Sea eels? No problem. But in the shelter's kitchen alongside the lead cook, I had to admit potential defeat. Our surprise ingredient turned out to be carrots. Enough for 10 carrot cakes -- if we had flour and baking powder. We examined a giant bag of brown-tipped lettuce, a cabbage, half-rotten pears, seemingly-impenetrable

Chef Brad Miller said food trucks weren't around while he was growing up in Ottawa, about an hour-and-a-half southwest of Chicago. Now he lives in the Los Angeles area and said he's “been to almost every single food truck that L.A. has to offer.” Consider this research for his job as host of “Food Truck Nation,” which is scheduled to premiere at 8 p.m. Tuesday on the Cooking Channel. Miller visits three food trucks and interviews the chefs about their recipes and techniques on each of the six half-hour episodes. Among the “one-of-a-kind cuisine” that Miller highlights: The surf and turf burrito at the Bibuta truck in Minnesota; a french onion sandwich at the American Meltdown truck in North Carolina;

Hand sinks need to consistently reach 100 degrees F. The hand sink closest to the drive-thru window was not reaching 100 degrees F and the other hand sink near the front cashier's counter was only reaching 100 degrees F when the hot water from the three-compartment sink was turned off. Repair or replace your water heater or add a hot water booster to ensure you have a consistent supply of hot water all day. It was noted that the restaurant sometimes has no hot water by the end of the night shift, which is unacceptable. The establishment should discontinue operation should this occur. The thermometers are not accurate and need calibration. Food is not being properly thawed. Bags of prepackaged

What if you could sample beers at your own pace in a setting where it was game day everyday? You can. It's called a dedicated self-pour taproom, and they're popping up around the Bay Area, from Livermore to San Francisco. Here's how most work: Show your ID and credit card and in exchange you'll get a glass and nifty card or smart bracelet linked to your account. Head to the taps, and insert or swipe along the digital scanner for the beer you want. Pull the handle and watch as it flows into your glass. Digital displays indicate how much you've poured and what it cost you. Pour as little or as much of that lager as you want. Sample a splash of stout before committing to a full pint. This is beer

Although January has been relatively benign, weather wise, so far, don’t let those lovely snowdrops fool you with promises of spring: real snow may be on its way later this month and it is normally a time for warming full bodied reds.
