Foodies, Dr. Horrible, Portland and Books: Highlights from My Reader
August 28, 2009 at 7:55 am
Highlights for August 22-28
Following all the philosophical food related discussions which my husband and I had this week, I really appreciated “Foodie vs. (Vegan) Foodie: Let’s Stop Dropping Anvils Already”, which discusses the perception that “those who love food cannot be vegan, those who are vegan cannot love food”. (Not that I could ever be vegan, I love cheese too much, but I agree with the essay nevertheless).
The often hilarious Cake Wrecks featured cakes inspired by Dr. Horrible’s Sing Along Blog for this week’s “Sunday Sweets”. If you haven’t watched Dr. Horrible yet, you need to. Seriously.
Food & Wine covered Portland, Maine in their “Food Across America” series. I always get really excited and proud when my home state is featured. If you’re headed to Maine, check out the great restaurants mentioned, especially Fore Street.
Serious Eats has a post and accompanying comment thread about books with great food passages that aren’t technically food books. It’d be a sad day if I had to choose between books and food…
Remember, there’s always more to read from “What I’m Reading” on the right sidebar of the blog.
