Pete Wells writes about telling your kids where meat comes from in the New York Times. It's an interesting subject, and one I've tackled in my own family with some of the same results Wells describes. Ever since my kid was old enough to understand, I've let him know that the meat he eats was once a living animal - I want him to understand the moral repercussions of what he consumes, be it food-related or otherwise. At this point, his response is "I don't want the lamb to have to die. But it's so gooood." I hear ya, kid.
Michael Ruhlman writes incredibly well (as usual) about being a food writer. My favorite line (something I try, usually unsuccessfully, every semester to impart to my interns):
Perhaps the best general advice I got about writing was to always ask myself, Why should a stranger be interested in what I have to say? I think you should always be asking yourself this, whether youre querying a magazine editor or blogging (though the blog is a new and unusual beast).
It's been reported all week on other Atlanta blogs, but in case you missed it, here's the link to Food & Wine magazine's Best New Chef article featuring our own Linton Hopkins. I do wonder what the magazine's definition of "new" is, but I'm so happy Linton's getting some much deserved recognition.
Unfortunately, I felt the same way about your review as Jennifer Zyman felt about this…
Nice article...But no mention of Tortillas first location, just down Ponce a bit, where that…
^ someone didn't read the article, but decided to comment on the pic anyway.
