It was great to read people’s responses to our Fall 2011 Chewing the Fat pig poster— I’m glad everyone is as charmed by that hog as I am! If that sneak peek left you looking for more gorgeous food-related design work, the Paris Review Daily has some very cool vintage Chez Panisse menus to peruse this afternoon, including the one pictured above. It’s also fun to daydream about the dishes served— who wouldn’t wouldn’t want to go to an event called The Grand Aioli?
Food in the News
Organic poultry farms have fewer antibiotic resistant bacteria among the flock, lessening the chances that they will pass those pathogens on to human consumers.
Alice Waters, Nikki Henderson and Tom Philpott talk Slow Food, food justice and the diversification of the food movement. Nikki and Michael Pollan are co-teaching a course at UC Berkeley this fall as part of a program called Edible Education 101, organized by Alice to celebrate of Chez Panisse’s 40th anniversary.
