A quick roundup of what I've seen on the 'nets lately:
A reason to go to Akron: No, not the downtown revitalization; Chrissie Hynde's new restaurant.
A reason not to eat out in London. And then multiply those prices by 2.08 and you see why you are not reading restaurant reviews in this space.
Global warming and your dinner plate: "In developed countries, people typically eat about 224 grams per day. But in Africa, most people only get about 31 grams a day." The Lancet, talking about meat.
Meet Your Mystery Meat. Macrophotography at its best.
Just how much of a jolt do you get from that soft drink anyway? You might be surprised; some of the citrus flavored drinks contain more caffeine than the darker ones.
Our British ancestors and their prickly meals. (The nettle pudding actually sounds good.)
The Ridiculously Thorough Guide to Making Your Own Pizza, And this sounds like a great gadget to have.
A moratorium on new fast food restaurants is on the menu in South L.A.
Tell me this is some sick kind of Canadian joke? "La Presse newspaper even reported that poutine (french fries smothered with cheese curds and gravy) will be cut from school cafeterias." No! Don't take away the poutine!
News on the grocery wars front. Whole Foods building smaller stores, lowering prices at Wild Oats. (I wish they'd buy out Tesco and finish that hulking structure that's been looming over my village for two years now.)
The most surprising thing about the McRib sandwich.
How meat producers are screwing you (if you are one of their workers).
And too good not to add at the last minute: How to feed foreigners. If you're French.
