The Atlantic Food Channel
I’ve recently discovered,through the recommendation of Anja Mast, The Atlantic Food Channel. It covers many corners as far as food is concerned: sustainability, cuisine, culture, nutrition, home cooking, retail, drinks, restaurants, etcetera.
However, my one complaint is the Visa (and other) pop-up-and-out-and-all-over-the-screen ads that I sometimes can’t figure out how to get rid of. It’s annoying, but if you can manage it, you’ll enjoy the site. Some recent interesting pieces include:
- An article by Marion Nestle called “What Didn’t Say on Colbert” about the manufactured sugar crisis.
- A piece about the growing desire of North Americans to learn to cook. Maybe Oprah give her magic touch to this trend, author Melina Shannon-DiPietro suggests.
- “The Art of Popsicle Making,” (yes, they, too, can be art) about a small outfit in New York City that makes creative, healthy popsicles. And yesterday, they wrote about what it’s like to sell those frozen creations in the city.
This is going to be a regular stop on my interweb* food purusings.
*”Interweb” is a cultural reference to NBC’s comedy series 30 Rock, created and sometimes written by Tina Fey. The word is, obviously, a combination of “internet” and “web,” which I find very funny. Probably too funny, but alas, my sense of humor.
