Read Up On It For January 11th, 2013
After a small holiday hiatus, Read Up On It returns to Passable. With stories on everything from the province trying to shut down brew-your-own businesses to the wonders of moonshine. Enjoy!
First the bad news.
- The Economist reports that farm-raised tuna may not be the best way to preserve tuna stocks. And with prices going up, tuna is becoming an even bigger luxury product. It’s not a pretty picture.
- Like making your own wine and beer? Well, you may start to know what your grandparents felt like during prohibition. The NSLC is looking to close up make your own wine and beer shops throughout the province, says the CBC, stating they are “merely enforcing existing laws that prevent the manufacturing of liquor.”
- Speaking of homemade hooch, Bon Appetit talks about a recent interest in moonshine. White lightning anyone?
- And still talking about boozy, The Atlantic looks into the world of whiskey.
- If we’re going to wax nostalgic about foodstuffs, why not yougurt? Gourmet reposts a story by Mimi Sheraton from 1947 about her love of yogurt.
- Speaking of love, Sue Reidl writes about she is enamored with Comté, a lovely french cheese, in the pages of the Globe and Mail.
- And finally, a Ted talk about the art of cooking and mindfulness, seen through the eyes of a cooking instructor.
