A few stories I've enjoyed this week:

Of Church and Steak: Farming for the Soul by Joan Nathan (NY Times): The farmers who make the sustainable food movement are embracing the "What Would Jesus Eat?" diet. No joke.

A Few Gaffes, a Lot of Golds by Corie Brown (LA Times). Though unfortunately the author keeps her claws retracted, this investigation into how Trader Joe's Three-Buck Chuck won double-gold at a national wine competition does shed light onto all those awards wineries tout.

A Nice Group Can Turn Sour When It’s Time to Divvy Up the Bill by Karen Gaudette (Seattle Times): Um, the response to check inequality is not to order separate checks at the Cheesecake Factory, as one woman suggests.

See Recipe on Back by Aïda Mollenkamp (Chow): Ten back-of-the-package recipes apparently worth making.

This Is Your Brain on Food by Kristin Leutwyler Ozelli (Scientific American): No surprise here, but scientists have finally determined that meth and salt-and-vinegar chips may trigger the same brain circuits in their respective addicts. (Thanks to Grinder for the link.)
