Domesticated bliss

  1. Rachel Laudan writes about the origins of rice, maize and chickens.
  2. Not forgetting the sweet potatoes.
  3. Maybe the awful headline did attract some readers, but I’m here to help you get past it and find out about Clementine Paddleford.
  4. “Ninety minutes into the meeting, we were still trying to agree what the hell a vegetable was.” Was that meeting of nutritionists worthwhile? You be the judge.
  5. A history of modern Irish cheesemaking.

I was in Ireland last week, and managed not to do Irish cheese. But I did lots of other good things that will show up in the podcast in due course.
