Read Up On It For June 20th, 2014

Purging clams and smelly fish, perfect pigs and magnificent mangos, it’s all here in the latest edition of Read Up On It!


  • Although the story was published a few weeks ago, check out this great piece by Amy Novogratz and Mike Velings in the Washington Post called “The End of Fish.”
  • I’m a fan of funk-da-fied foods: kimchi, fish sauce, shrimp paste. I don’t know if I would find the idea of having my mouth peel from the fumes an appealing prospect.  Would you say no to hongeo, South Korea’s smelliest food?
  • Last but not least, Alton Brown teaches us how to properly slice a mango, without slicing ourselves.
