Read Up On It – For May 25th, 2012
This weeks’ edition of Read Up On It is all over the map: literally. Italian cheeses, Montreal chefs, Vietnamese coffee and more.
- Love Italian cheeses? Well, expect prices to go up soon. Over 300 million wheels of cheeses such as Grana Padano and Parmigiano Reggiano were destroyed in this weeks’ earthquake, at a value of over 250 million Euros. (Via Sky News)
- I generally don’t post a lot of blogs here, but on occasion, one pops up that excites me. Jun Blog is a collection of essays, recipes and definitions about one of my favorite cuisines: filipino food. Calamansi sorbet anyone? I’ll pass on the bagoong.
- Love Montréal’s Joe Beef? Eater recently published a great two part interview with its owners, Frederic Morin and David McMillan. These guys are an interviewers dream, with quotable bits and well thought-out answers. Read it. Now.
- Patio season is upon us, and strawberry season is soo close. The New York Times recently posted a great recipe for a bourbon punch made with cut berries. Ohhh yeah.
- The Atlantic posted a neat story about how design in food packaging could keep us from overeating. Now, about that old thing called willpower…I think mine is hiding in the basement.
- On the local tip, the Ecology Action Centre’s Food Project seems to be doing a lot of good. Open File has the story.
- Also over at Open File, Adrian Lee has been covering the recent report that deals with the debt accrued by the Seaport Market, as well as the changes that are coming.
- And last but not least, I love how this has gone somewhat viral. I’ve always loved the idea of Vietnamese coffee, now I feel I have to go and buy one of those little attachments/thingamajiggies to make it.
