Read Up On It – Februrary 17th, 2012
Vegans go hunting, cookbooks and magazines become electronic entities and more, all on this week’s Read Up On It.
- David Liebovitz has created another cookbook, this time specifically for the iPad. It’s a guide to the world of pastry in Paris. How that man stays thin, I’ll never know.
- Sardines may be kosher, but what about the occasional nematode, a microscopic worm, that lies buried in it’s flesh? The Diners Journal says: “There was no evidence that the intestines and the flesh had been commingled.” Problem solved.
- Yes, Valentine’s Day is over, so now all that chocolate is on sale. But can you eat it without a guilty conscience? The Atlantic looks into the ecological, ethical and economical impact of chocolate.
- The Guardian looks into the current resurgence of tripe as a cheap way to eat. Nom Nom Stomach Lining Noms.
- I had heard of a Haligonian who had worked at NOMA and The Fat Duck through a few local chefs, so it was nice to see this story about him, Daniel Burns, in The Globe & Mail get so much attention. Now, who wants to organise a pop up with him at the helm?
- Back at The Atlantic, again, a vegan talks about his forays into hunting as an extension of his philosophies around animals.
- Speaking of hunting, Hank Shaw pairs deer with juniper, a bush that many deer are known to eat. Gin anyone?
