For The Love of Food

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

Some wonderfully thought provoking articles this week, including what to do about trace amounts of dangerous chemicals, why long-cooking vegetables isn’t always a crime and some excellent tips on dealing with picky eaters.

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

  1. Hi Darya,

    The saturated fat thing is outrageous – you know there is a movement for (and thankfully also against!) a butter tax here in the UK… way to make me mad!

    I was also wondering what your opinion was on coffee. I did a research piece on coffee for my blog

    – partly for fun and partly for self justification :). Anyway the upshot of my research seems to be there is harm in consumption, apart from that linked to increased heart rate, anxiety, sleeplessness etc … all of which are quite apparent through self observation. I know I cant drink lots of coffee or I do get anxious…. but I now feel fine about having a cup or two a day, without worrying about hidden dangers. ..

    However, I know you used to drink coffee and have now stopped so I was wondering why that was.. future Summer Tomato Live episode?

    Happy Friday! ps – sorry if its really bad form to link to my blog directly – never sure about these things!

    “Apparently there are naturally occurring steroids in mustard greens that work like anabolic steroids. Who knew?”

    Am I the only one who’s mind went straight to Popeye with this one? I know, I know, Mustard Greens and Spinach aren’t the “Same Thing,” but come on… you all were thinking it too!

    I love Yelp. Lots of chances to review restaurant space, food, and service as a patron. Also like that you have a more enclosed space to search for keywords of things you are interested in. It also gives owners/managers a chance to reach back out to those where things had gone wrong in a visit they mention in a review and ask for a chance to make it right. Also another way for owners/managers to reach out to their customer base to look for unfiltered, constructive feedback and reward their evangelists. There’s a lot of gibberish and “self-promotion” on there, but I find a lot of it very useable when keeping all in perspective – especially when traveling to a new city.

What do you think?
