Where’s the beef?

Local, grass-fed beef makes for a healthy meat option


Food and Drink Features

Vivian Boroff
When I first started shopping at farmers’ markets and with local purveyors, it was simply a way of supporting local farmers and ranchers. But as I connected with those involved in raising food locally, I became increasingly aware of how much better grass-fed meats actually are for you.

Uneasy eats

Is the food on the menu leaving you stumped? We’ve got you covered with simple rules for eating tricky dishes while staying within the boundaries of etiquette.


Food and Drink Features

Carol Smaglinski

We’ve all had it happen at least once in our lives. You try to cut in half a garnet red beet, but instead send the firm root vegetable dancing off the plate onto the spotless white tablecloth or the floor.

Feelin’ flexy?

Going vegetarian, but only part of the time


OKG7 Dining

Carol Smaglinski
A “flexitarian” is a concept that has been around since the ’40s, when our government asked citizens to give up meat for some meals, so the extra rations could be donated to our troops at war. Now scores of folks are flexing, so in honor of Earth Day on Friday — which also happens to be Good Friday — consider making your next meal meatless.

A cut above

Specialty meat purveyors supply selection and service not common at chain supermarkets.


Food and Drink Features

Doug Hill
In supermarkets, where most people shop for groceries, it’s rare to find anything in the meat case but plastic-wrapped parts on foam trays shipped from hundreds of miles away.

Yay or neigh?

Gazette staff
Oklahoma is known for many things — breath-stealing wind, real-life cowboys, annoying Broadway theme songs — but not least among them is that it’s the horse show capital of the world.

John Dies at the End

Far-out fun.


Comedy

Rod Lott
Better than the hit novel on which it’s as faithfully based as budgetary issues allow, John Dies at the End is one of those movies that tries really hard to be a cult movie. In this case, however, the goal has been met; I suspect that, as with most of director Don Coscarelli’s work, from Phantasm and The Beastmaster to Bubba Ho-Tep, we’ll still be discussing this one decades later. That’s not to say it’s without faults.

OKG7 vegetarian eats


OKG7 Dining

Kelley Chambers
’Tis the season to overeat, but that doesn’t mean everything has to be meat and potatoes. Several metro restaurants will more than satisfy your carnivorous cravings while also offering tasty vegetarian dishes filled with lively seasonal vegetables that are far from dry lentils and bean sprouts. Remember, being vegetarian only means meat-free, not flavor-free.
