Combo Plate: Classic cakes, free-range eggs, a look at Red O and more

June 16, 2010 |  4:18 pm

Petaluma -- USDA shocker: The government says you should eat more fruits and vegetables, and less salt, fat and sugar.

-- Peanuts on planes: To ban, or not to ban?

-- Oh, yes: The Rick Bayless-created menu at Red O may have been the source of much foodie anticipation, but for design fans, the new restaurant’s look could steal the show.

-- Free-range chicken eggs might come with a little something extra: A Taiwanese study found that the eggs contain much higher levels of industrial pollutants than eggs laid by caged hens.

-- Valerie Gordon of Valerie Confections is on a mission to resurrect some of L.A.'s lost desserts. First up in the Classic Cake project: the recipe for Brown Derby Grapefruit Cake.
