Roundup: Food and books get our attention

October 27th, 2008 · No Comments · Books about food, Roundup

This roundup has a definite Kansas City and book bent.

On the menu. Maybe you remember seeing photos from the book Hungry Planet: What the World Eats on the Time magazine website. Now you can see the photos in person at the Kansas City Public Library through Jan. 18. (KC Public Library)

Food maven from Kansas. The noteworthy and so-soon-obscure food writer Clementine Paddleford gets her due in new biography, Hometown Appetites: The Story of Clementine Paddleford, the Forgotten Food Writer Who Chronicled How America Ate. (Washington Post)

Speaking of food. William Tuttle, author of World Peace Diet: Eating for Spiritual Health and Social Harmony, will speak on Thursday, November 13, 2008, at 4:30 p.m. at Johnson County Community College. He will talk about where our food comes from and how it may be harming us physically and spiritually. He will also give suggestions for positive changes. The talk is part of the college’s sustainability lecture series and is open to the public, although faculty and staff are asked to register. (JCCC)

Still nurturing AgroDefense idea. Kansas’ leaders are still working hard to get the most dangerous agriculture pathogens moved to our state. Oh boy? (KC Star) And Johnson County could get a piece of the action, too. (KC Star)

Food short in farm country. Kansas City isn’t the only place with the problem, but an NPR feature spells out the problem. (NPR)

Cold toes alert. The Barefoot Contessa, Ina Garten, will be speaking in Kansas City this week on her book tour for Barefoot Contessa Back to Basics: Fabulous Flavor from Simple Ingredients which is officially released tomorrow, and she talks with the Star in advance. I think she’ll be wanting her shoes while in town. (KC Star)
