We come across a lot of great ideas, models, and thinking — here are some from near and far that better our food culture:
Culture Kitchen: A new kind of cooking school gives immigrants jobs, and a place to share their culture.
Baker’s Notes: From up the coast in Portland, a bi-annual journal offering recipes, stories, images and illustrations about the Scratch Baking Co. experience, putting “the party to paper”! Be sure to check out their video on shaping bagels, and the recipe for apple cake on their blog.
The Nation: Food Issue: Including Frances Moore Lappé on “The Food Movement: Its Power and Possibilities,” Michael Pollan on “How Change is Going to Come in the Food System,” and “10 Things to Reduce Hunger and Provide Good Food For All.”
Food for Body and Soul: On the nourishment found through picking ingredients from your own garden, from cookbook author and chef, Deborah Madison.
Home Growers Circle: How to create a local food system when there’s no room for farms — a restaurant in Los Angeles sources ingredients harvested by backyard growers.
