Quinn on Nutrition: More on beans and bread

My recent column about the best way to soak beans to retain nutrients brought a response from Ana Carolina Fernandes, PhD nutritionist and professor at Federal University of Santa Catarina in Brazil. In 2010, her research team published an article in the International Journal of Food Science & Technology in which they reviewed the nutritional impact of various methods of bean soaking and cooking. (Volume 45, pages 2209-2218 if you're interested).

How to get into red wine, whether you're at dinner or on a Netflix binge

For better or worse, I've always been a white wine drinker. It's what my mom keeps in the house – Kendall-Jackson chardonnay, to be specific – and taste, like behavior, is often learned. I'm a firm believer that wine drunk is the best drunk and that even a single glass of wine has the ability to ease the tension after a particularly long day (or week or month). I have happy memories built on pinot grigio and chardonnay and riesling.
