Read Up On It – For August 10th, 2012
This week on Read Up On It, more about natural wines, food carts and more. Dig in!
- First, a little bit about wine. There’s been a lot of talk about “natural” wines and what that means: not only in terms of growing, but of taste, labelling and more. The Globe And Mail looks into it, and we posted about it last week, via a New York Times story. Both take it from two very different vantage points. Worth reading, and apparently, imbibing.
- Speaking of wine, its not just grapes that make the wine, but apparently bugs. More specifically, wasps, or so says NPR.
- Speaking of drinks, Jezebel looks into the strange world of how Diet Coke became the second most popular soft drink in America. Really? Ew. Aspartame = blechy aftertaste.
- I have to say I love mason jars and reusable jars. You can never have too many. But if by chance you do, here’s a bunch of things you can do with them that don’t involve canning or preserving. Neat-o. (Via Ecosalon)
- More details about the upcoming David Chang restaurant coming to Toronto. I foresee a trip coming very soon. (Via Toronto Life)
- Oh, FloFab. How I love thee. What to do when your beet falls to the floor in a fancy pants restaurant. Hint to servers: don’t serve it.
- On the local tip, The Chronicle Herald looks into the world of fish farming, both out at sea and inland.
- And finally, looks like food trucks in HRM may mean more than fish and chips. Metro looks into it as does Open File Halifax.
