For The Love of Food

Welcome to Friday’s For The Love of Food, Summer Tomato’s weekly link roundup.

Another week of thought provoking food and health articles including an excellent argument against Anthony Bourdain’s big fat mouth, why high-fat diets probably don’t cause type 2 diabetes, and a couple of unconventional ways to treat depression.

Want to see all my favorite links? Be sure to follow me on on Digg. I also share links on Twitter (@summertomato) and the Summer Tomato Facebook fan page. I’m very active on all these sites and would love to connect with you.

  1. Wow a lot of good articles here. Regarding the “elitism” of food….I agree with both sides of this. I’m “over” both the pretentiousness of foodie mania and I’ve never gotten with Paula Dean and deep fried lasagna. But, surely there is a truly lovely balance in between. My outlook is more Alice Waters, but on a budget I watch the sales and cook accordingly. We don’t bring hardly a processed food into the house and we save money this way. We do not drink soda which is the number one calorie in America and while many food reporters say that the poorer people can’t afford vegetables, I marvel as the coke and pepsi in their fridge. No one is telling the truth about the realities of obesity. It goes hand in hand with a self-indulgent culture even though there are sub culture realities of a different nature, but obesity is not limited to poor folks in Appalachia. I live in richest county of Tennessee. My neighborhood is full of fat kids, fat moms and fat dads and our farmer’s market is 4 miles away and affordable. Our Whole Foods is 2 miles away and has great weekly specials on fresh food. Anthony B. is arrogant but has a point. Paula Deen says she cooks for regular people, but the lie is that regular people only want deep fried fat and enjoy size 24. That “regular” down home food causes problems and it’s no longer appropriate. She is appealing to the REBEL in all of us to eat massive butter and sugar and then laughs about it.

    As far as stock on the stove, don’t do it. I’ve had food poisoning many times. Not worth taking that risk.
