Meatless Monday is a global movement, a way of life. It’s not a campaign to turn everyone in the world vegetarian or vegan; in fact, many involved are meat-lovers. Eating less meat has been proven to reduce the risk of disease, curb obesity and has important environmental impacts, too. Will you join us in giving up meat, just for one day a week?
The final season of Mad Men kicks off on Sunday with Don Draper and his gang of ad world execs entering the final year of the jet-set 60s. As interested as we are in the business and personal dealings of the Sterling Cooper office, we’re even more obsessed with the decade’s nostalgia-inducing food and drinks. From steakhouse power lunches to Draper’s whiskey-swilling habit, there’s been no shortage of throwback fare featured on the wildly popular drama.
In honor of the upcoming premiere, we’re taking a culinary step back in time with one the 60s most popular party tricks: fondue. Jamie Oliver’s spin on the retro favorite is a cheese-lover’s dream and features three types of the runny, gooey goodness: cheddar, Gruyere and blue cheese. He suggests croutons and potatoes as dippers, but with so much beautiful spring produce available at the market, we’re going with seasonal greens like roasted asparagus and artichokes — not to mention an Old-Fashioned cocktail or two.
