Rocky River’s Go Buddha offers first healthy food ATM in Cleveland area

ROCKY RIVER, Ohio — Go Buddha opened its food delivery service in Rocky River last July and is finding the city to be a friendly place. Maybe that’s because the chef really knows food –healthy food — and apparently that is being appreciated.

But now he is going even further, offering the Cleveland area’s very first ATM food service at the west-side restaurant. But let’s step back for a moment.

Chef and owner Joshua Ingraham and his wife, Emily, started the business in October 2019. Ingraham was the former executive chef for the Cleveland Indians and, prior to that, was the culinary director at the Cleveland Clinic.

“We started our restaurant as a sideline,” Ingraham said. “I always wanted to pair food and health. I had to learn plant-based food prep and wanted to go back to the root of simplicity in food. Whether vegan or not, we can all

This Food Lion, located on the site of the old Walnut Mall in Petersburg, is one of two national grocery chains — the other being Walmart — located within the Petersburg city limits. A bill from Sen. Mark R. Warner, D-Virginia, would establish financial incentives for food providers to build and expand operations in so-called ‘food deserts.’

U.S. Sen. Mark R. Warner is the chief patron of bipartisan legislation that creates incentives to increase access to groceries in underserved communities — including Petersburg — commonly referred to as “food deserts” due to their lack of adequate numbers of supermarkets within them.

The bipartisan Healthy Food Access for All Americans (HFAAA) Act, introduced Wednesday in the Senate by Warner, D-Virginia, and three other senators, would create tax credits and onetime grants for entities to establish and expand operations that make it easier to get nutritious foods

Exotic Infused Sauce Delivers a Welcome Kick to Food and Cocktails

Two leading food companies have devised a flagship sauce that packs all the color, taste and characteristics of Japan’s Tokushima Prefecture in a bottle.

Months of collaboration between Bando Foods and Kawazoe Orchard has resulted in the tangy and spicy Bakasco, a yuzu-infused pepper-like sauce, designed to give food an extra boost in quality.

The sauce defines the very essence and charm of the nature-rich Tokushima as all the selected, main ingredients packed into a bottle of Bakasco – chilli peppers, yuzu juice, and persimmons – are sourced from the prefecture.

Bakasco has been certified organic by the Japanese Standards of Agriculture (JAS). It is perfect for pork stir-fries, gyozas, thick Japanese noodles and fried foods. 

The sauce, which comes in a 60ml bottle, can also be used to make spaghetti with oil and garlic, and be used with assorted seafood rice bowls, sashimi, oysters, roast beef, meat dishes, soups,
