Ever stopped to think about why Americans love kale so much? Vogue did, and they found a surprising culprit for our kale obsession. Turns out our love for kale is tied to our new appreciation for bitter flavors. When Mad Men hit TV screens, people started to swap their typically sweet-and-fruity cocktails for the classic ones that Don Draper and associates drank on the show. These cocktails acted as a gateway to all things bitter and allowed us to embrace other bitter foods and drinks, such as IPAs, Brussels sprouts and, of course, kale.

The Item Every Top Chef Uses

Interview a top restaurant chef about their most prized kitchen tools, and you might hear them wax poetic about fancy knives or industrial-grade appliances — and tape. Yes, you read that correctly — turns out tape labels are a hot topic in the kitchen, and learning to trim them is a rite of passage for novice cooks. Food52 explains why these chefs are just as particular about their tape as they are about their dishes.

Master the Art of French Cooking in Julia Child’s Kitchen

Where can we sign up?

Researchers have identified a striking signature in tumor DNA that occurs in five different types of cancer. The specific signature results from a chemical modification of DNA called methylation, which can control the expression of genes like a dimmer on a light switch. Based on this advance, the researchers hope to spur development of a blood test that can be used to diagnose a variety of cancers at early stages.
