A survey of the critical food news stories of our times. Including a history of s'mores.

With everyone either on summer vacation or gearing up to write about the Farm Bill, it's a sloooow week for real food news.  Which is why I bring you...

S'okay by Me if the S'mores Are Made Indoors by Nancy Baggett (Washington Post): Past, present, and future in America's favorite marshmallow treat. 

Excerpt from The Revolution Will Not Be Microwaved by Sandor Katz (Culinate): I’m offering no spoilers in this story about casu marzu, a Sardinian cheese. Just cover your eyes and bite into it.

A Dark Side to the Ethanol Boom? by Brad Knickerbocker (Christian Science Monitor): A wrap-up of news stories about the ill effects of the current ethanol boom. Just the thing to browse before you go out for a beer with your favorite eco-foodie.

Mmm: Junk Food by Beth D'Addono (Philidelphia Inquirer): Yes, it's a special package on the Simpsons' love for food. What would you feed Homer if he came over for dinner? Bonus link: the highbrow equivalent of this story.
