Links 13: send me your news etc.

Before I share some of the interesting articles I’ve read online recently, I’d like to alert you to a new thread I’m starting on the blog featuring the latest food-related news from my local area. It’s far out, I know, but I’m aiming to publish a fortnightly roundup of things going on Lewes, Brighton and East Sussex that have caught my attention, along with more features on some of the most unusual or worthy stuff I hear about. So, if you have a food-related business, charity, event or project and news that you would like to see featured on Gannet & Parrot, please get in touch with me by email.

And now for those promised links:

In all that glitters, I was delighted to hear The Skint Foodie awarded Best Food Blog in the Observer Food Monthly Awards last night, most well deserved.
In books – and also from my former home of Peckham – Sally Butcher, author of Veggiestan and owner of Persepolis, launched her latest book Snackistan last night. I can’t wait to read it.
In blogs, I enjoyed Davina’s post about her Granny Esther’s Handmade Home in Portugal, Kerstin’s Fried Green Tomato Award for Middle Aged Rebellion (I wonder what it says about me that this was my favourite film at the age of eleven?) and Brain Pickings discovery of Liberace’s little known cookbook.
Elsewhere, I recommend… Grace Dent on Tory criticism of food banks.
Susanne Moore on why the presence of food banks in one of the world’s richest countries is immoral.
Elisabeth Braw on how diversification of crops may provide a sustainable alternative to GM in the face of climate change.
Sarah Benjamin’s recipe for a classic cookbook: ‘elements of authority, style and innovation’.
And, the Sustainable Food Trust ‘best of blogs‘ featuring Michael Pollen on germs and pickled kale stalks.

    I love these links posts. I feel like I can completely absolve myself from the duty to keep up with the papers and any other form of cultural interaction. I’m just going to come here, read what you recommend, then go outside and ‘sound clever’.

      You are too kind Hattie! I spend my life trying to ‘sound clever’ but unfortunately all I usually manage is the odd links post.
