Earth Week "Bargains," Le Creuset Class and Everything Soy in Today's Eater's Digest

An early morning serving of food news, with no preservatives or additives.

The Four Seasons Resort in Scottsdale is celebrating the 40th anniversary of Earth Day for the entire week. The Onyx Bar & Lounge will be offering the TREEtini cocktail for $16 each(what?!). For each cocktail sold, a tree will be planted in India. At the Talavera restaurant $60 gets you the four-course tasting organic menu; throw in another $15 for the wine pairings. For reservations, please call 480-513-5085

If you think that all soy products are created equal, think again. The Cornucopia Institute has published a 50+ page report on various soy product manufacturing companies and their standards. The report covers everything from where the beans come from to their organic integrity. You might be surprised to find out who cooperated and who kept silent. Click here to read the full report.
