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.
Wow. Close enough to call it the middle of October. Halloween’s coming up. Corn mazes. Pumpkin-flavored everything. And it’s nippy outside!
So after all that, here are some good things to check out–this week’s HandPicked 8.
6. Life & Thyme is a site we like–a lot, and right now they’re presenting a great video telling sous-chef Joseph Johnson’s story. This is a great look into what it takes to survive and thrive in a big time kitchen. Roll tape.
7. Rochelle Bilow used to live on a farm in central New York, now she writes for Bon Appetit. Her book, The Call of the Farm, is a very personal, very enlightening take on her finding herself. A good read.
And that’s some of the good stuff on our plates, HandPicked 8 for October 13, 2014!
