Weekend(ish) links, Sept. 3


Prize-winning bars and cookies at The Great Minnesota Get-Together. 

We’ve been happily (but very) busy in Minneapolis, Chicago, and Madison, and now that we’re back in the Twin Cities our schedule is packed with friends and family and birthday celebrations and planning our next travels. I swear there are new posts coming soon, but in the meantime here’s a build-up of links:

An A-to-Z list of famous writers’ favorite foods.

You schwenker, I schwenker, let’s all schwenker together! (But in all seriousness I really want to do this.)

Gilt Taste does it again and again: making homemade tomato paste (a “concentrated flavor bomb”) and super-easy homemade-cured gravlax.

  1. That article about food wastage made me think of that scene in “The Grapes of Wrath” where the farmers are pouring kerosene on oranges to keep food prices up, while starving migrant families watch… I wonder how much of the increase in food waste comes from individuals and how much happens at other points in the supply chain.
