After a brief one-week hiatus, Passable’s Read Up On It is back, with more content than you can throw a ham bone at.

- First off, a short film produced by Joe York called “Cured”. It’s a mini-doc about Allen Benton, the ham and bacon producer based in Tennessee who found fame thanks to his beautiful foodstuffs. David Chang even raved about it for a few pages in his cookbook. File under: WANT.
- We mentioned a few weeks ago that Montreal resto Joe Beef has their own Tumblr. Looks like their friends at Cabane À Sucre are following their lead.
- Speaking of Canadiana, this video from the HuffPo shows how to properly cook a beaver tail. You mean I have to skin it? Gah.
- The CBC reports about the destruction of Nova Scotian farmed salmon due to disease.
- In case you haven’t heard, once again, eating chocolate is good for you. But c’mon, moderation people.
- The Atlantic has two pieces about the people who grow your food. First, the ones who pick those tasteless tomatoes in Florida by Daniel Klein, and second, about children who pick food. In North America.
- And finally, here’s a new word to impress your wine friends/fiends with: minerality.
