  • The Foundry's "The Champ" grilled cheese sandwich

So, apparently YouTube has a food channel called Tasted. Who knew? And they do tons of programing, mainly in the Food Network/Bravo style -- that is to say, jaunty music, quick-cut editing and shows with names like Dude Food.

One such show, Star Chef Secrets, this week features Eric Greenspan of The Foundry on Melrose, talking about his award winning grilled cheese sandwich and demonstrating how to make it. This involves an alarming amount of butter.

Greenspan is quite the character, with plenty of quips and shenanigans along the way. Watch the video below.

  • Milo's Kitchen: A Treat Truck for Dogs
    Milo's Kitchen, a part of California-based Big Heart Pet Brands, is taking its homestyle dog treats on the road this summer with the "Treat Truck." The dogified food truck is making stops all over the country, ending up in New York early September. The truck stopped at Redondo Beach Dog Park Friday morning entertaining the pups with treats, a photo-booth and play zone. Milo's Kitchen Treat Truck offered samples of the line's six flavors, all with chicken or beef as the first ingredient, and all made in the U.S.A. with no artificial colors or preservatives.
