It’s going to be a smoky, delicious summer

I spend all year daydreaming about summer. More specifically, I daydream about throwing an entire farmers market’s worth of produce onto a flaming grill. I know what you’re thinking: What about burgers and hot dogs? Alas, thanks to legions of soggy bell pepper-zucchini skewers and undercooked slabs of eggplant, grilled vegetables tend to be a tough sell among the meat-eating crowd — woe to the marinated portobello that dares to compete with a rack of pork ribs. And that’s a shame, because a few smart techniques can make charred cabbage just as craveable as a juicy burger.

Tuna suspected for a dozen illnesses in Italy

At least 12 people are sick in Italy with tuna being investigated as the source of their illnesses.

The foodborne outbreak is suspected to have been caused by thawed yellowfin tuna steaks with added water from Italy and raw material from Spain.

In recent days, nine people with symptoms such as such as nausea, vomiting and loss of consciousness or fainting were reported to the Tuscany local health unit (ASL) and admitted to two hospitals before later being discharged.

They all reported consumption of tuna in various forms at two different restaurants in Florence.

Officials have visited both restaurants to assess the hygienic conditions, conservation of the product and details on traceability. Samples of tuna were sent for chemical and bacteriological analyzes.

Officials also went to the distribution center in Florence that supplied the two restaurants and blocked goods related to the lot potentially involved.

The Ultimate Guide to Barbecue Sauces

From classic original, to brown sugar-based, to teriyaki, these are the sweetest, spiciest, and smokiest sauces to have in your pantry 

It’s Pride and barbecue season, sweeties, which means it’s time for a rainbow spread of grilled veggies and a rack of baby backs. But for me it’s the sauce.
