Every Friday I share interesting links and findings, food I’ve made,
and an update on what’s growing in the garden. Enjoy.
- The title says it all: A Map of Where Your Food Originated May Surprise You.
- These were amusing: “Life begins at the end of your comfort zone. Not at conception, as you may have previously heard.”
- Will labeling food differently stop people from wasting so much of it? “If global food loss and waste was a country, it would have the world’s largest greenhouse gas footprint after the U.S. and China.”
- I was in London last month and if I had known about this, I definitely would have paid a visit. How beautiful!
- Do you ever think of why you like the things you like? “We come to like things we thought we hated (or actually did hate), and we are very poor predictors of what we are likely to like in the future.” The ideas here are interesting, albeit somewhat dizzying to think about.
- I’m excited to follow this project: Chefs and academics are coming together at Yale to discuss important topics surrounding food, including, “fermentation, law, food security, agriculture and gender.”
- Lady Dynamite (on Netflix) has provided some much needed joy and laughter this week. It’s an indescribable show, but this will give you a taste. Uniquely hilarious. I love it!
- I’ve already professed my love for van Gogh once, and I can’t help but share the following video. It’s amazing! And relaxing to boot (thanks, Beethoven).
Last weekend I hosted a party and everything I made and served was plant-based. It was a success, but perhaps too much of a success, because I didn’t take a single picture of the food! BUT – if you’re looking for a crowd pleasing dessert, look no further than this Key Lime Pie. It was a big hit!
This week was all about garlic scapes, of which there is a seemingly unending pile in my kitchen (cut from the many garlic plants outside). I’ve done my best to use them each day and have four different final products to prove it:
In the past day or so we’ve been absolutely drenched in rain. Most of these photos were taken during sunnier days earlier in the week. It gets more exciting by the day out in the gardens!
These red currants are starting to ripen into delicious little gems.
Hard to beat the cute factor of tiny peppers.
THIS WEEK ON CURED LIFE
I hope you all have a lovely weekend.
