A few of the most interesting food stories floating around the ether:
Grass-Fed? Not Without Grass by Jane Black (Washington Post): Hundreds of farmers who have joined the grass-fed beef industry (movement?) in the Midwest and Southeast are being forced by the drought to sell their cattle to feedlots.
Table Talk by Tom Philpott (Grist): Philpott talks with Michael Pollan about his next project, in which Pollan addresses all the questions many of us had after reading The Omnivore’s Dilemma -- presented with all his research about the food industry, how are you supposed to shop?
Olives, Flavored by Time, Seasoned by Memories by Julia Moskin (NY Times): First they want us to roast our own coffee. Then it's make our own beer, culture our own cheese, and now, cure our own olives. What next? Grow our own food? Jeez.
