"CURRY NOODLE TIME;The Sam Woh Experience
Written by Eric Ehrmann @1996, Eric Ehrmann
Eric Ehrmann lives and writes in Albuquerque, New Mexico. He was one of the original contributors to Rolling Stone Magazine. He has lectured at the University of Virginia, the Indiana University School of Journalism and the University of New Mexico

"After reading about chop suey on Chef Mars' website, I got to thinking about another Chinese dish, curry noodle soup, otherwise known when ordering as curry noodle.

I had my first taste of curry noodle in 1970. The aromatic vapor from the concoction engulfed my face, clearing the sinuses, helping a hangover too. It warmed the soul and had the attributes of a magical potion. I was 23, living in San Francisco and working at Rolling Stone magazine. I'd just read "Down in Out in Paris and London," George Orwell's account the fine folks who were drawn to the food arts. This book made me I look at dining establishments as theater, often theater of the absurd. Among patrons and cook staff one could see people harboring second and third-- sometimes dysfunctional-- personalities that hovered just below the surface, waiting to jump into the fray and set the dining drama moving in another direction. ."

US Researchers Develop Instant E. Coli Bacteria Test
Thursday December 12 11:37 PM EST

BERKELEY, Calif. (Reuter) - "Researchers said Thursday they have developed a sensor that, for the first time, can instantly detect toxic E. coli bacteria and could be cheap enough to put in a drink bottle cap."

Here is some very promising news that can help all of us in the business of serving food. Ever since the infamous "Jack in the Box" scandal the going-out-to-eat public has become more cautious, and with reason. Now perhaps there is a panacea, and an easy to use, instant test of a food products wholesomeness. However, it would seem to me that if this test can do what it claims, then any kind of contaminated processed food product should be able to be detected at the source, before it reaches the consumer or chef. Surely such a simple test could be utilized in the plant, so the need to "put it in a bottle cap" is really not necessary. What do you think? Discuss it with other professional chefs!
For a very good informative paper on e.coli that a chef and layman can read and understand, with practical applications see the E. Coli Primer and learn much more about e. coli 0157:57.
