Benjamin Moore Reveals Its 2018 Color of the Year

e_coy_german_cover_48374_11aw_small“The whole thing is about being a detective,” says Benjamin Moore director of strategic design intelligence Ellen O’Neill as she spreads her case files (a stack of newspaper clippings, tear sheets, and various ephemera bound with a velvet ribbon) across a table at New York mainstay the Odeon. Each year O’Neill and her team of private eyes travel the globe on a top-secret investigation: to distill the ideas and imagery from design fairs, art exhibitions, and cultural happenings into a single color that sums up the contemporary zeitgeist. Considering they have more than 3,500 hues to choose from, it’s no simple feat.

Sometimes the case is difficult to crack (last year’s elusive Shadow required some cross-examination and 2016’s Simply White caused somewhat of a stir). But the 2018 verdict—like so much else of the present moment—was unapologetically strong-willed. It transformed the National Mall into a sea of color at the Women’s March in January, it starred in hit TV shows from the eerie Twin Peaks to the somehow eerier The Handmaid’s Tale. It stomped down practically every runway in February and stampeded onto the streets come September. It clad the glowing interior of a concert hall in Stockholm’s Royal College of Music. And it curved around the corners of Eero Saarinen’s elliptical newly restored TWA lounge. There was no doubt about it: O’Neill (and just about everyone else) was seeing red. Well, Caliente, to be exact—a warm, enveloping hue that’s easy to love.

Alton Brown Live: Eat Your Science”, the follow-up to the smash “Edible Inevitable” tour, will hit the road in 2017. Fans can expect more comedy, talk show antics, multimedia presentations and music (yes, he sings), but Brown is adding a slew of fresh ingredients including new puppets, songs and bigger and potentially more dangerous experiments. Brown has a knack for mixing together a perfect base of science, music and food into two hours of pure entertainment. Critics and fans rave about the interactive fun when Brown invites an audience member on stage to serve as his assistant.  According to Alton, “there will be plenty of new therapy inducing opportunities during our audience participation segments. I don’t want to give too much away, but we’re also going to play a little game with the audience,” says Brown.

Brown, author of the James Beard award winning, “I’m Just Here for the Food,” and the New York Times bestselling sequence, “Good Eats,” is releasing the first of two new cookbooks through Ballantine Books (an imprint of Random House) in the Fall of 2016. ALTON BROWN: EVERY DAY COOK, or EDC as Brown calls it, is a collection of more than 100 personal recipes as well as a pinch of science and history. He has hosted numerous series including, “Cutthroat Kitchen,” “Camp Cutthroat” and “Iron Chef America” and created, produced and hosted the Peabody award winning series, “Good Eats” for 13 years on Food Network. Good Eats can still be seen on the Cooking Channel and Netflix.

Community FoodBank Of New Jersey Voted Best Nonprofit

FoodBank_logo_The Community FoodBank of New Jersey, the state’s largest anti-hunger and anti-poverty organization, was named “Best Nonprofit” by NJBIZ’s inaugural Reader Rankings survey.

According to NJBIZ, thousands of “clients, colleagues and peers of businesses in New Jersey” voted for the best organizations in 52 categories, including philanthropy, health care and real estate.

“What makes the companies listed here distinct is the devotion they inspire among our region’s business leaders,” NJBIZ said.

For more than 40 years, the FoodBank has been on the front lines of combating hunger and poverty across New Jersey, where 1 million residents struggle with food insecurity. The FoodBank provides nutritious food through its community partners – including food pantries, soup kitchens and shelters – and through a range of innovative programs that serve food to children, seniors and families in need.

Last year, the FoodBank distributed more than 50 million pounds of food (equivalent to about 42 million meals). Every day, its warehouses in Hillside and Egg Harbor Township see hundreds of volunteers who lend their helping hands and representatives of local organizations who receive food from the FoodBank to distribute among people in their communities.
