I'm back from the holiday weekend, and I've been gathering links for the linkfarm in the interim to post now!
In-house link: Local organic farmer receives EPA grant to help you eat more kale. Goals of the local Truly Living Well farm include education, training and composting. Congrats, K. Rashid Nuri!
The Daily Beast starts a new series about summer food by going to a tiny cafe in a small Norwegian town where the 24-hour sunlight in the summer inspires some seriously tasty treats.
Bon Appetit advises diners about what Sarah Palin might call a "gotcha question": restaurants trying to charge diners for water. Outfox them and insist that tap water is fine.
Tangentially related (they're by the same author), we have reached the limits of food portability. Yummy, Sushi Poppers.
Although the World Cup is nearly over—soon a winner will be crowned and vuvuzelas will fall silent worldwide—Chow lists a drink from every country in the Cup. My favorite is the Algerian listing for sheer cheek.
Recently, McDonald's has launched new items like lattes, Frappuccinos (sorry, frappes) and sweet tea. Next up? Smoothies, according to AdAge. We'll see how those fare...
Two 50-state lists for you: 50 states, 50 breakfasts (from Eater via Food Network Magazine) and 50 fattiest foods in the states (from Health).
Georgia's entries are "HabersHam and Eggs" at B. Matthew's Eatery in Savannah and the Luther Burger, first served at now-closed Mulligan's in Decatur. (Doing Decatur proud...)
The Frisky takes an in-depth, multimedia look at the social history of Diet Coke. For those of us too young to remember when Diet Coke was first introduced, it's especially interesting. "DC" is the favorite beverage of both the Clinton and the Obama administrations, plus Donald Trump, Mariah Carey and Posh Spice Victoria Beckham.
Want to send a friend a drink? Don't fool around with those pixelated Facebook drinks anymore. Send them a real drink! This was reported in the San Francisco Chronicle and is just happening out there right now but it will inevitably reach Atlanta.
Cracked, my favorite site to get lost for hours at (well, aside from Wikipedia), snarks on organic food and the people who buy it, although they don't use the more polite term people...
The Wall Street Journal reports on study findings showing that women taste beer better than men. We can find nasty-tasting chemicals in beer better than men. One beer company has 30% of its thousand 'advanced' tester positions filled by women. Hooray beer!
The headline at this Eater post sums it up: 24-Hour Restaurant Battle sort of looks like this show and that show and that one, too. But I'll probably still watch, even if just the first episode, out of curiosity.
After watching a riveting Independence Day marathon featuring America-focused episodes of No Reservations, I totally love Anthony Bourdain. No Reservations' new season premiered this week and Eater has, uncensored, the most quotable one-liners. Jewel-Encrusted Cod Piece would be a great name for a band. Also, if you really think about it, his musings about fusion cuisine do seem to make sense.
Some food just doesn't photograph well, even if it is tasty.
Nothing wrong with grease on the walls if the burger is tasty.
That building and all of the ones next to it down to the Dunkin Doughnuts…
