Authentic food news

  1. Huge admiration to Becky Lawton at the British Library, for using the Great British Bake Off to share some delightful medieval observations on bakers and baking.
  2. A long and thoughtful piece at Civil Eats, on whether selling necessarily means selling out. Can the qualities that drive small-scale suppliers survive a takeover?
  3. The same question applies to iceberg lettuce, whether you love it, loathe it or can take it or leave it. I wonder, would the opprobrium heaped on iceberg’s crunchy head be applied if it were grown closer to home?
  4. The Movement to Define Native American Cuisine. Just the one? This isn’t going to end well.
  5. I’m resurrecting this one – Chemistry of Cast Iron Seasoning: A Science-Based How-To – because it remains important and useful, especially because I seem to be increasingly aware of cast iron around the internet.
