Moonshine, Urban Farming, and Other Food News

I have a lot to do before I fly to Cincinnati tomorrow, so today's Food Section is a short one:

Distillers Betting on ‘Boutique’ Versions of Hooch by Jane Black (Washington Post): When the food mags talk up the microdistillery trend, they're probably not referring to genuine moonshine made according to a NASCAR driver's special recipe.

Finger-Lickin’ Tofu: KFC Goes Vegan by Josh Wingrove (Toronto Globe & Mail): PETA pressures Kentucky Fried Chicken franchises in Canada to buy unchicken, possibly from Seventh-Day Adventists. Yes, every word in the previous sentence is true.

" target="_blank">Urban Farming Sprouts in Seattle by Jennifer Langston (Seattle PI): With 1,500 people (like me) on the waiting list for P Patches, Seattleites explore other venues for urban farming.

Also, a restaurant gossip alert from Marc Ramirez at the Times: After two years of feverish gossip, Matt Dillon finally opens the Corson Building for business.

" target="_blank">Slow Food Nation Rolls Out Lineup by Miriam Morgan (SF Chronicle): If you track food news, you'll be seeing a lot of press about this Labor Day festival in San Francisco, which stars all the ecofood personalities Alice Waters has grown to know and love, plus G-Love and the Special Sauce. Tickets go on sale today.
