Happy first day of December. While you were slacking off at work yesterday and shopping Cyber Monday deals, a group of Michelin-starred French chefs were hard at work preparing dinner for 150 world leaders at the COP21 climate change summit in Paris. What does one serve at a banquet attended by the likes of Barack Obama, Vladimir Putin, and Chinese president Xi Jinping? The menu included "modern Freneuse turnip soup with scallops cooked in floral steam", "free-range poultry from Licques, stuffed celery preserve with truffles and parsleyed creamed spinach," and for dessert, a traditional Paris Brest cake with stewed citrus fruit and a "light praline cream."
Other must-know news for Tuesday: Donald Trump is really into legumes, the New York Times weighs in on the GMO labeling debate, and the FDA is being pressured to redefine "healthy." Meanwhile, tickets to chef Albert Adrià's 2016 London pop-up are going fast, and the Keurig of home-brewing has crowdfunded an insane amount of money.
