HandPicked 8–Stuff That Matters
There’s always a lot going on in the space we call ‘real food’, but not every story generates a whole post of its own.
That’s why we’ve created the HandPicked 8–to give you a quick idea of some of the things happening in the wide world of food.
September’s here. Before we know it there will be frost on the pumpkin–or something like that.
Folks are enjoying as much late summer produce as they can handle and preserving the rest for wintertime use.
So after all that, here are some good things to check out–this week’s HandPicked 8.
6. Our friend, Peter Barrett, has a very in-depth article on ediblemanhattan.com on a Tuscan-Hudson Valley food connection. Read about Dancing Ewe’s cheese, sausage made in upstate New York.
7. If fast-food workers were paid a living wage, the price of burgers and fries would likely go up. Theatlantic.com has a very thoughtful piece about how the demand for cheap, convenient food seems ingrained.
8. Diane Cu and Todd Porter AKA whiteonricecouple.com are all about telling food stories through their photography. No big article here, just a fantastic site showcasing fantastic work. Check them out.
And that’s some of the good stuff on our plates, HandPicked 8 for September 8, 2014!
