Front Burner: Food News You Can Eat
Genki Noodle and Sushi has opened a new location in the Prado Shopping Center on Roswell Road in Sandy Springs. I did not go to the opening party last week even though it had sumo wrestling and sake bombs, which as you know, is the very definition of a good time. (5590 Roswell Road, 404-843-8319)

- Food historian Andrew F. Smith, author of “Eating History: Turning Points in the Making of American Cuisine” (Columbia University Press) will speak tonight at 7:30 p.m. at the Cordon Bleu College of Culinary Arts Atlanta (1927 Lakeside Parkway, Tucker) in a program organized by the Culinary Historians of Atlanta. According to the program notes, Smith will discuss “the bold inventors, savvy restaurateurs, ruthless advertisers, mad scientists, adventurous entrepreneurs, celebrity chefs, and relentless health nuts” who have fashioned the “crackerjack history behind the way America eats.” Sounds interesting.
