Mixing Bowl: Bourdain and Safran Foer Meat Debate; Ben and Jerry’s Goes for Fair Trade

Former New York Times Dining Columnist Frank Bruni writes about Basil Pizza & Wine Bar, a restaurant in Crown Heights that stands out for appealing to the area’s Orthodox Community as well as its African American residents.

Television food personality Anthony Bourdain and writer and vocal vegetarian Jonathan Safran Foer duked out the ethics of eating meat on Canadian public radio this week, Eater National reports.

Ben and Jerry’s Ice Cream, which ditched the long time all-natural label last month is trying to swing back to its ethical food roots with new Fair Trade flavors, according to NBC’s Feast.

Robert Sietsema at the Village Voice explains why we eat with a fork, knife and spoon.
