For your weekend reading pleasure.
Each Friday, we’ll share some of our favorite recipes, food articles, stories, and content from around the internet. Here is what we liked from this past week:
From The New York Times: “Weeknight Dinner From Around the World”
A fascinating peek onto the kitchen tables and lives of average families from Peru to Turkey. This beautifully-done photo essay with text uses everyday family dinner to celebrate the world’s diversity — and also how much we all have in common.
Sarah Jampel’s article about Detroit’s Ochre Bakery makes me want to run to the kitchen and not leave until I have cooked, baked, and eaten every one of these recipes, from the Apple Honey Pecan Muffins to the Smoky Carrot Dip.
Food is actually an important part of a presidential campaign. From corn dogs to cheeseteaks, a candidate’s ability to relate to the average voter is judged partly through food — and God help the politician who gets it wrong. Here is a great account of the latest gustatory hurdle the 2020 candidates faced.
From The Washington Post: “Food Plays a Starring Role in the Downton Abbey Movie”
Oh, Downton. Welcome back to my life. How I missed you: the balls, the downstairs drama, the upstairs drama, the quaint trips to town for ribbon and notions, and most of all, the elaborate dinners. This Post feature takes an in-depth, behind-the-scenes look at how much care and work went into the movie’s food scenes.
