HONOLULU — A boat that ran aground off Honolulu while transporting foreign fishermen to work in Hawaii's commercial fishing industry has raised new questions about the safety and working conditions for foreign laborers in this unique U.S. fleet. A long, cramped journey to the United States for a group of fishermen from Vietnam, Indonesia, Philippines and Kiribati ended with a U.S. Coast Guard rescue last week after their fishing vessel smashed into a reef just off Waikiki's shore.

Orange is the new white? Unique amber wine creates buzz

Oct 21, 2017

BURDETT, N.Y. — The sloping vineyards of New York's Finger Lakes region known for producing golden-hued rieslings and chardonnays also are offering a splash of orange wine. The color comes not from citrus fruit, but by fermenting white wine grapes with their skins on before pressing — a practice that mirrors the way red wines are made. Lighter than reds and earthier than whites, orange wines have created a buzz in trendier quarters. And winemakers reviving the ancient practice like how the "skin-fermented" wines introduce more complex flavors to the bottle. "Pretty outgoing characteristics. Very spicy, peppery. A lot of...

French regions like Brittany and Normandy have reportedly been hit hardest by the butter shortage, which is also linked to a drop in Europe's...

WASHINGTON — Prominent chefs, bakers and restaurant owners want the Supreme Court to rule against a Colorado baker who wouldn't make a cake for a same-sex couple's wedding. The food makers say that once they open their doors for business, they don't get to choose their customers. They say that abiding by laws that bar discrimination based on sexual orientation does not strip them of creative control of a dish or a pastry.

Oct 21, 2017

NICOSIA, Cyprus — Couples who marry in civil ceremonies have been banned from taking wedding photos outside places of worship in a Cyprus region known for hosting destination weddings, a senior Orthodox Christian cleric announced Friday after an uproar over a lewd photo taken in a chapel courtyard.
