In response to a recent congressional report about lead and other toxins in baby food, the Food and Drug Administration has posted a public notice and included a link to an industry letter sent by Susan T. Mayne, director of the Center for Food Safety and Applied Nutrition.

The bucolic documentary, out today, follows truffle hunters and their canine companions in Piedmont, Italy

A steep hillside mottled green and orange; the same woods, now barren, kissed by fresh snow; a bounty of fresh tomatoes splayed across a rustic table. These are just a few of the picturesque scenes from The Truffle Hunters, a quietly stunning documentary about elderly foragers looking for that prized white fungus. The film, out March 5, isn’t just a pretty sight — Italian travel porn sparking Old World–wanderlust — though it is certainly that, too. An ode to slow living, the movie captures a humble tradition, its observational style subtly exposing greater socio-political issues that surround a luxury business.

Do you know who picked your truffles? The heady white ones perfumed with an unmistakable scent? It’s not who you may have thought. Carrying on cultural tradition, … Read more
