It’s not a recipe or restaurant review blog (except occasionally). Instead, we look through the lens of science, history, anthropology and other disciplines, asking quirky questions and being generally geeky about all things edible. (But fun, entertaining geeks, we hope…)
Food + anthropology and history? Sounds...exactly like something I'd like.
In related news, I've realized recently that I'm in a bit of a dry spell in terms of food reading. It's been a while since any food lit has captured my interest enough for a concentrated read (or to write about). I did just pick up a copy of Au Revoir to All That by Mike Steinberger and I'm looking forward to it (France + Steinberger = good combination) - but it's been months, maybe a year, since I've read a food book.
In the past, I've had three or four food books at a time stacked on my bedside table. Have I just read all the good ones? Is food publishing in a dry spell? Have my standards changed? Or am I just missing what's out there?
