Every Thursday I'll be recapping particularly interesting stories from the Wednesday food sections from newspapers around the country as well as podcats from the last week.
Here are some things I found this snowy first week of March:
On The Splendid Table there was a touching story about the first Pinot Noir vineyard in the US. The "heartbreak" grape was planted in Oregon during a honeymoon in 1966.
This one is actually a week or two old but the science and story of this rice is fascinating. Bonus, it apparently makes the best risotto ever.
When I originally heard about Hampton Creek and Just Mayo, I just assumed that vegan products were the goal, but their large scale sustainability mission is actually pretty fascinating . I'm in no hurry to replace a poached egg from the chickens at my brother's school with vegetable protein, but a cheaper option for baking etc. is pretty cool. Bonus, the way they decide to combine vegetable proteins designed by a guy from Google Maps.
