Read Up On It for September 7th, 2012

I don’t know what happened, but this week there were some pretty amazing stories about food posted online. Everything from the serious (studies on organic farming) to the trends (home canning, temperance cocktails) to the surreal (ice cream nachos, McDonalds going vegetarian in India). It’s Read Up On It!

      – Baskin Robbins is either sick or smart. I haven’t decided yet.Ice cream nachos? Gawker asks, WTF?
  • Finally, I don’t even live in Los Angeles, but I read/follow Jonathan Gold’s reviews all the time.  Believer sits down with him and talks about food criticism and snobbery, and eating live octopus is perhaps a bit more fucked up than you think it is.
