How To Make Eating Takeout Food Feel More Like Dining Out


For people who love eating out at restaurants, having to dine on takeout at home can feel uninspiring. But according to Business Insider, chefs and restauranteurs say there a number of ways to make eating at home feel more special. First, turn off the news and the fluorescent kitchen lights. Swap them for mood music and candlelight. Dress your table in the theme of the cuisine you're eating. Use cloth napkins with napkin rings or fancy folds, and your good china, cutlery, and stemware. Third, pair your meal with an appropriate beverage: sweet tea with fried chicken, sake with sushi, or horchata with Mexican food. Finally, jazz up your entree's plating with a garnish, and your dessert with whipped cream, fresh fruit, or a chocolate or raspberry drizzle. Bon appetit!

    The ride-hailing giant Uber saw mixed fortunes in 2020: revenues from its primary passenger-carrying business fell sharply, but earnings from its food delivery arm soared.

  • Les éthylotests disponibles dans les commerces qui vendent de l'alcool dès juillet

    Jusque-là, seules les discothèques et les épiceries de nuit devaient proposer des éthylotests à leurs clients. Cette obligation va bientôt s'étendre à tous les magasins qui vendent de l'alcool. Mais Julien Chivé, caviste bordelais, n'est pas vraiment convaincu. "Je trouve que ça ne sert pas à grand-chose. Les gens savent bien qu'après deux verres, il faut s'arrêter si on veut reprendre la voiture. Et les clients rencontrés ce jeudi matin ne voient pas non plus l'intérêt d'en acheter. "Ca me semble absurde", lance l'un d'eux. "De toute façon, après deux verres, on sera positif, donc c'est à chacun de se gérer", explique un autre.Dans l'épicerie de Virgine Matheron, à Talence (Gironde), il est difficile de trouver une place pour les éthylotests. La gérante doit enlever des produits et envisage surtout des coûts supplémentaires. En effet, dans le supermarché Carrefour City, qui en commercialise depuis un an, ces produits ne sont pas très populaires. "On en a vendu trois en un an", confie le gérant. Près de 50 000 commerçants devraient proposer des éthylotests à partir du 1er juillet, sous peine d'une amende de 675 euros.
