Unless you've been living under a rock for the last few decades, you already know that the whole discussion about food has been expanding exponentially. This is very exciting. And it is important to keep up on the various developments. But this can be confusing as well.
As a result of trying to keep myself at least a little bit current, I started to put together something then called "Food Notes." It was a way of sharing stories about food and culture and all of the dynamics of how we end up eating what we do. I sent it out to friends and colleagues who showed an interest. This is just an outgrowth of that.
Now for the caveats - they should really have been at the beginning of this missive. I do not, in any way, suggest that the selection of stories in each edition is representative of all that is going on in the area. And it does represent my own particular viewpoint, I'm sure. It is impossible to do otherwise. But I try to be fair.
That said, I hope that you enjoy the mix of stories. I hope that you find some inspiring and joyful, and others to be misguided and maddening. That would then be an accurate representation of the world in which we live.
That is a pretty easy question to answer, as questions go. Simply send me an email, saying something like "Food Notes - I'm in!"
