Question: I was diagnosed with esophageal achalasia a few years ago. I did not have any reflux issues - just difficulty with food entering my stomach. I've had two dilation procedures, which helped for a while. Carbonated soda with meals seems to help the food move along. I rejected Botox injections of the esophagus because the effect is temporary. I haven't had any treatments in several years and food still collects at the point of stomach entry. Is a soft diet the best cure? Answer: Sometimes we just can't relax.

WILMINGTON - Here in a small test kitchen on a dead-end street, some of the food world's greatest minds are at work. Their task might seem impossible, but they believe they can make a difference for millions of Amtrak riders, one roasted chicken at a time. Amtrak has gone gourmet - or at least it's trying to. The rail agency has hired some of the most accomplished chefs in the country, who come together each spring to brainstorm new dishes for Amtrak's menus. The annual chefs' gathering is part of an effort to change the way riders think about train cuisine.

SWEET . . . Don't be afraid to indulge your craving for ice cream. So says Arun Kilara, a Pennsylvania State University food scientist. "Somehow people have the notion that ice cream and frozen desserts are major contributors of fat in our diets, and this is not the case," Kilara says. Although it does contain fat, Kilara says, ice cream also contains such nutritional pluses as protein, calcium and carbohydrates. . . . AND SAUER Sauerkraut on pizza? It's all the rage in Montana.

In the aftermath of the shooting deaths of five police officers in Dallas on Thursday night and amid heightened tensions between police and some activists, a woman and her son stopped by the Lower Merion Police Department in Ardmore on Friday with stacks of pizza. "Our hearts are heavy today but bellies full thanks to [the mother and son] who delivered the Police Department delicious pizza from Bella Italia," the Police Department wrote on its Facebook page that afternoon. On Saturday, the department noted on Facebook that another Montgomery County woman stopped by with her daughter and treated officers to coffee and doughnuts.

There are three health violations that are sure to temporarily shut down an eatery in Philadelphia: no hot water, a rodent infestation, and not having an employee on site who has passed a food safety course. But it's the last infraction - having no one on duty trained to prevent food poisoning - that triggers the overwhelming number of closures. According to a spokesman for the Philadelphia Department of Public Health, eateries usually get one pass. But if an inspector returns, and a food safety certified person is still missing, the business is asked to "discontinue food operations" for at least the rest of the day. During the last week, the health department temporarily shuttered 19 restaurants and neighborhood groceries.

NEW YORK - "Loaded with Omega-3s . . . rich in live cultures and probiotics . . . helps with cellular renewal . . . safe for expectant mothers . . . contains all essential amino acids. " Listening to these claims being touted by many of the 2,670 exhibitors at last week's 62nd annual Summer Fancy Food Show, you might think you had stumbled into a medical convention rather than the country's biggest gathering of specialty-food purveyors. That is, if you managed to ignore the wafting aromas of roasting meats, baked muffins, creamy cheeses, aged wines, rich chocolates, and brewed coffees, to name just a few of the olfactory sensations - not to mention the accompanying tastes - being offered to the 25,000 attendees who trolled the miles of aisles at the Javits Center for three days looking for the latest food and drink trends.

WHAT IT IS - Working side by side for over 12 years with her husband - a native of Naples, Italy - at their family's Italian restaurant in Millville, Lucy Covino dreamed of opening a place of her own where she could honor the cuisine of her native Mexico with offerings like the sweet and spicy mole sauce her mother spent hours preparing. On a day trip to Cape May last fall, Covino noticed a small place for rent at Perry Street and Carpenters Lane behind the Washington Street pedestrian mall.

DEAR ABBY: My 21-year-old son, "Evan," recently moved out to be with his girlfriend. They live in a small apartment and cannot afford a lot beyond the basics, including internet. They spend every moment at my house when they are not working. They use our internet connection, eat our food and drink our beverages. I know this may sound terrible, but I want my freedom! I don't feel I should be obligated to give them free food and internet every day, considering that they show up with new phones and new speakers in their cars.

This Saturday and Sunday, about 20 mobile cuisine vendors from New Jersey, Philadelphia, and beyond will congregate at Atlantic City's Brighton Park for the inaugural Food Truck Festival. The vendors' stories are as varied as their menus, which span categories and continents. Wink Hall of Little Egg Harbor dishes out eccentric, potato-based eats from his 1 Potato Two truck. His signature Spudwich comprises a filling - lobster salad, steak and cheese, or chicken parm, to name a few - sandwiched between two large fried potato skins.

MARGATE, N.J. - At 11:52 a.m., Jym Paris, on a day off from his job impersonating colonial painter James Peale, walked up to a building impersonating a food truck in a beach town whose symbol is a hotel building designed to look like an elephant. The resemblance was uncanny. No, Paris, 71, did not look like the actual Margate Burger & Food Truck building, though his pink shirt and teal vest did coordinate well with the pastel color scheme on the adobe talk-of-Margate building, literally fashioned in the shape of a giant food truck, with wheels, windows, even windshield wipers, carved and painted into a stucco exterior.

A decade ago, Ben Wenk had a new diploma from Pennsylvania State University in agroecology and a decision to make: whether to strike out on his own or return to Adams County and join the family business, Three Springs Fruit Farm. Then, he saw an announcement about a new farmers' market in Society Hill. His family hadn't sold at farmers' markets. "It clicked: That's what I wanted to do. It was the chance to be a vendor here at Headhouse Farmers' Market that convinced me to come back to the farm," he said on a Sunday afternoon in May, manning his stand in the brick-paved arcade at Second and Pine Streets.

When I went "downashore" to explore vegan dining possibilities, I expected to find juice bars, sorbet shops, candy stores - places with a single, plant-based alternative. They were there, but I also found many businesses getting truly serious about multiple animal-free options. The old standard of a lone veggie burger on the menu, or the option to "veganize" items by leaving out the meat or cheese doesn't cut it in 2016. My intrepid guide and copilot for the day was Anne Dinshah, a vegan-cuisine consultant who works with food retailers.
