Canadian food guru Wayne Roberts has been credited with the characterization of food as "the point of a million connections." Food concerns everyone, and not just because we all eat. It connects with nutrition and health, with gastronomy, gardening, animal husbandry, global trade, development models, genetics, botany, education, Canadian history, social movements, elitism, human rights, religion, whackos of every stripe, and your grandmother. I've been studying food issues for a while now as I pursue a masters degree, and getting more interested in the issues the more I read, discuss, and see.
This blog will be a smorgasbord of food topics. Please join me at the table.
