While people/pundits/comedians continue to argue the merits and issues surrounding Trump steaks, ever-hopeful presidential candidate Hillary Clinton stopped by a cute coffee shop in Detroit called Astro Coffee to snag what appears to be an espresso in a teeny tiny cup. Stay classy, Hil.

In other news, Andrew Zimmern's Travel Channel show got picked up for another season; Canada's prime minister is in Washington this week and the country has already made a faux pas; pistachios are being recalled for salmonella; check out the cover of Eddie Huang's new memoir; Starbucks really wants its employees to vote this November; and finally, Stephen Colbert takes on Trump steaks.

— James Beard Award-winning chef and host of Travel Channel's Bizarre Foods: Delicious Destinations Andrew Zimmern just landed a fourth season of his hit show. 26 new episodes will hit airwaves next year.

— Canada's new Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is in Washington for a three-day visit and Eater Montreal reports that the state department flew in New York City's Mile End Deli to cater part of the affair (check out those fancy table settings above). However, another part of the menu involves a pecan cake dressed with maple syrup not from Québec but from New England (gasp).

— Starbucks really, really wants its employees to vote this upcoming November. CEO Howard Schultz wrote in a letter to employees: "Our intention is nonpartisan, and it is simple: by helping to increase voter registration and participation, we believe more people will have an opportunity to make their voices count." This is probably code for "Do not vote for Trump."

— Here's the cover of chef Eddie Huang's (Huang's World, Fresh Off the Boat) new book. It hits bookstores this May.

— Salmonella has been linked to Wonderful pistachios, a California-based brand. Check this page for details and do dispose of any nuts bearing the affected product codes.

— Finally, take it away Stephen Colbert:
