It's time for a bit of Kitchen Trash for pop culture obsessives. On this week's Keeping Up with the Kardashians, reality star Kim Kardashian stirred up controversy amongst viewers when she called Indian food “disgusting.” According to the Los Angeles Times, Kim K. responded to yesterday's Twitter criticisms on her website, explaining that her comment was not intended to offend, but she just does not like Indian food...or anything that contains cilantro for that matter. For a subtle introduction to the amazing cuisine, we suggest that she try this Indian Barbecue Chicken, which combines healthy chicken breast and a tamarind-infused barbecue sauce that happens to be cilantro-free. The sweet-and-tangy flavors will appeal to naysayers and barbecue lovers looking for a delicious upgrade.

May has been busy for Mission Chinese Food chef Danny Bowien. He was nominated for a James Beard Foundation Award for rising star chef; previewed dishes like Sichuan peppercorn-coated chicken wings at F&W's offices; and last week, officially opened the NYC outpost of his San Francisco-based restaurant for lunch and dinner.
 
Bowien recently found an apartment near the new restaurant, but he's no newcomer to Chinatown—which he explored while living in the city prior to the launch of his West Coast flagship. He took us on a tour of this fantastic food neighborhood and revealed his favorite places to eat off-duty. "You have to get them to put their handmade pulled noodles on top. That’s the best thing in the whole world.”

Michelle Obama's Dinner Rules

Today, Michelle Obama's American Grown: The Story of the White House Kitchen Garden and Gardens Across America hits shelves across the country–with proceeds going to the National Parks Foundation. The first lady's first book not only details the progress of her garden, but also includes advice on raising a healthy family. In an interview on NPR's Morning Edition, Obama discussed some of her family diet rules: infrequent desserts, lots of vegetables and no white rice–only brown. While a home garden inspired by Obama's work at the White House will take time to flourish, you can implement some of her tips tonight by making Ginger-Marinated Chicken with Onions and Peppers. Served over brown rice, the healthy chicken and vegetables get an added layer of flavor from a touch of honey.
