Highlights for August 22-28
Following all the philosophical food related discussions which my husband and I had this week, I really appreciated “Foodie vs. (Vegan) Foodie: Let’s Stop Dropping Anvils Already”, which discusses the perception that “those who love food cannot be vegan, those who are vegan cannot love food”. (Not that I could ever be vegan, I love cheese too much, but I agree with the essay nevertheless).
Food & Wine covered Portland, Mainein their “Food Across America” series. I always get really excited and proud when my home state is featured. If you’re headed to Maine, check out the great restaurants mentioned, especially Fore Street.
Serious Eats has a post and accompanying comment thread about books with great food passages that aren’t technically food books. It’d be a sad day if I had to choose between books and food…
Remember, there’s always more to read from “What I’m Reading” on the right sidebar of the blog.
