Gastrological Forecast

If I had any confidence in my own ability to use the Internet for something other than buying lard tins on eBay and sending angry e-mails to Heather Wilson, I would surely pursue a master's degree in gastronomy from Adelaide University in Australia. They first introduced the program several years ago and I actually toyed with the idea of decamping for Down Under, but I just couldn't tear myself away from good old Dirt City. Moving half a world away to go to grad school is something 22-year-olds doall of their worldly possessions easily fit in three suitcases. I made the Big Move once (minus the grad school part) and I'm over it. No room for the ice cream maker? Can't take my marble rolling pin? Forget it. I'm not going. But now the university, in conjunction with Le Cordon Bleu, will let you take the program online! This is no diploma mill, it's a real Australian University and a well-known culinary school. The master's degree takes 15 months to complete and includes a dissertation but there are also shorter certificate programs as short as six weeks. Go ahead, prove what a foodie you really are. Get a degree in it. For more information go to www.lecordonbleu.com.au

All the News That's Fit to Eat

No Longer in the "Triangle." For more than two decades, Triangle Grocery sat at the triangle intersection of North Highway 14, Frost Road and Sandia Crest Highway. But three weeks ago, the tiny grocery store moved to new digs in what has been recently dubbed the Bella Vista Shopping Center, formerly home of Bella Vista Restaurant, and future home of the East Mountain area's first real strip mall. The new Triangle Grocery is some three times larger than its predecessor, replete with liquor, deli, bakery and expanded meat departments. East Mountain hermits--such as local punk rock legend Gordon Andersen--now have even fewer reasons to leave the hills for the city. (MH)

La Montañita Coop Poised to Expand out of Albuquerque

May merge with Gallup's Wild Sage Coop and The Marketplace in Santa Fe

It took Nob Hill's La Montañita Coop more than two decades to gain enough momentum for their 1999 addition of a North Valley store, but now the Coop is poised to expand its reach even farther, into Gallup and Santa Fe. The expansion into the North Valley was the result of membership requests for another location and entailed a long process of research and consideration. According to La Montañita's general manager C.E. Pugh, it has been very successful. It is because of this success that two other natural foods stores have come to La Montañita for help.
