For The Love of Food

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

All in all, today’s links are really depressing. Industrial food will be the death of us. Luckily Stephen Colbert is around to make it funny.

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

    Great! Thanks, Darya.

      Is that dripping with sarcasm?? BTW, did you see I wrote your cooking for guys post this week?

      • Soren Gordhamer says:

        No, I actually think it is really cool that you update people like me on this … it’s hard otherwise. Weekly digests really help. For real :-)

        I did not see the cooking for guys post … looking now. (pause) I see 8 reasons why regular guys should cook … will check it out – thanks!

    I’m really wishing I had taken the blue pill about now. The only thing that exceeds my anger toward industrial food/government shenanigans is the sadness over the fact that there is little we can do when up against a corporatocracy. We can educate ourselves and try to inform our friends and family, but from what I can tell the majority of people out there don’t think anything is wrong with the system and believe what they are told by the powers that be.

    I worked with a lot of people who laughed at “organic” and weren’t interested in an explanation about what organic actually means. How do you get these same folks to understand what industrial food means; literally, for our health and for our food supply?

    Inspired by being unplugged for 13 days while visiting three national parks (Zion, North Rim Grand Canyon, Bryce and a few lovely state parks). Awwwwwww! The peace and de-stress is heavenly! Helps put things in perspective a bit.

  4. I just wanted to comment on the tabbouleh recipe…it looks very good. But, I was taught to make tabbouleh by an actual Lebanese person (thanks, Nadja!), and I do have to say, in defense of other tabbouleh recipes, that there was a lot more bulgar wheat than given in this one (three tablespoons??) I would say as she taught me it was about half and half. (Half bulgar, half veggies.) The secret was to chop the parsley very fine…and use very fresh delicious tomatoes (not the supermarket monstrosities described in your first link). I have never been to Lebanon myself, so beyond that, I can’t say….

What do you think?
