Roundup: Updates, news…and still lagging

October 17th, 2008 · No Comments · Books about food, Eating out, Roundup

I’m so behind in so many things, but here, nevertheless, are some updates as some items of interest. Of course, I haven’t read my RSS feeds in days, but I’m doing what I can.


Perhaps you remember the following items from a couple of weeks ago:

Meryl makes a good case for me to be extra sad I missed the Lawrence Originals. Kurt Michael Friese (at right) read a couple of essays from his book, A Cook’s Journey: Slow Food in the Heartland, and asserted that nations’ best food (including in the U.S.) comes from the grain belt. And, of course, the Kaw Valley Farm Tour was fun as always. (Lawrence Journal-World)


Food and culture. A Kansas City program puts refugee women and their traditional foods in the garden and at the market. (KC Star)

New York wheat field. Kansans among those helping grow wheat in New York. (GrainNet News)

Food safety consolidated. Don’t know if this is a good or bad move for food safety, but Kansas regulators are putting it all in the ag department. (Topeka Capitol-Journal)

Late night food. Just as reports surge of food pantries running short, KU’s annual basketball preview is likely to haul in the goods. (Lawrence J-W)
