If you knew me at all my F shouldn’t have been difficult to guess. I am totally obsessed with food, but not in an unhealthy way. When I was doing my PhD we used to joke that not only did I eat food like everyone else, I cooked it. As I lived on my own this was unusual. I also had a community garden, so I grew my own food. Finally, I was doing a PhD in Food Science, so I was studying food too. How intense was that? Now, of course, I teach about food as well.
We all need food. Without it we would die.
In fact I am so excited about food and my “F” that I am having a food fest for the next two weeks. I am not going to promise that I will only post about food*, but I am going to try to center my blog around food science, food, molecular gastronomy. If you want to join in my Fortnight-long Food Fest, post a link in the comments.
Over the last month in the background I written a review of Michael Pollan’s new book, “In Defense of Food” and I will be posting that in four parts over the next two weeks. In the meantime if you can’t wait here is the Google Search for everybody else’s review. I have not read them yet as I wanted to give my perspective.
To get you warmed up, there a couple of earlier posts influenced by the book:
Additionally over the next two weeks, I will also find other food themed items to write and share with you.
*I might finish a knitting project and have to share it with you. Nothing is certain around here.
