Jane R said... I confess I found the blog piece better than the NYT article around which it was wrapped. So thanks for forwarding. I'd actually gotten the NYT piece in a mailing from my local Slow Food organization (are we hopeless foodies or what?) courtesy of Charlie Headington (the local permaculture guru, religion-and-ecology teacher, and old friend of Mary Evelyn Tucker and John Grim, if you know them from their on and off Berkeley sojourns), who wrote of the Times article (and he's not usually snooty at all) "The writer is pretty clueless about food, but says some nice things about Alice. The same issue of the NYTimes has an article on backyard bees and a main editorial on the superfluity of ethanol from corn." So there you have it. I have to go correct 18 take-home exams on the 4th century and run to the office. But first, organic pecan granola. Hugs via the blogosphere.

Johnieb, that would be Slow Food Piedmont, the website. The Piedmont is the central region of NC in which I live -- the vertical strip between the flat coastal part of NC and the Western, mountain part of the state (where lj lives). Doxy lives in the Piedmont too, but the Northern part of it; I'm in the central part.
I just discovered a slow-food-blogger who appears to be local. She's here and the chard picture above is from her.
Reminder: my colleague Jennifer Baskerville-Burrows, who is a priest in central New York State, has a wonderful foodie blog (listed to the right on the blogroll for the last several months and months), Cookin' in the 'Cuse, with luscious pictures, too. Hurrah for the cookin' rector, and for her love of sustainable and affordable food.
And this post is called Foodie Interlude part I because I have been wanting to post something foodie for two days now and have a nice little recipe waiting at home to share with you all. That will be Foodie Interlude part II. Later, tonight.
