José Andrés’ Veggie Eatery: Supersized

The vegetable-centric restos (beefsteak tomatoes, get it?) are currently in DC at Dupont Circle and George Washington University in Foggy Bottom. The new infusion of cabbage will fund new Beefsteak outposts planned for Tenleytown (near American University) and at the University of Pennsylvania campus in Philadelphia.

Kale

Kale

Kale. It’s a Superfood. It’s BIG. It’s everywhere, right?

“But what do the data say about how much kale is actually around? The U.S. Department of Agriculture started tracking the production of kale in 1997, and the closest proxy for consumption we have is something called “disappearance”: imports plus production minus exports. By that metric, divided by population, we arrive at the amount of kale the United States absorbed per capita ….”

“Kale was so much bigger in the 1990s,” Lydia DePillis, Washington Post blog (must-see graphs!)

DC's NFL Team Lives Up to Its Name

Washington DC’s professional football team lived up to its name in a game against the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday. The DC team, named after a variety of potato (USDA B 2368-4) with a red-pigmented skin, was buried in the turf like its namesake tuber for a 24 – 16 loss. Washington players will have plenty of time to plan their vegetable gardens since, with a 3-7 record, they’re probably gonna be out of the playoffs.
