Julia Child's editor, a dystopian look at the future of restaurants, and a tongue-in-cheek response to lifestyle brands, from a lifestyle brand.
Here are 5 of our favorite things we read this week:
- Last week, Stephen Colbert poked fun at Gwenyth Paltrow's lifestyle brand—this week, goop responded with a cheeky post. [goop]
- When Panda Express opened in Manhattan in the '90s, they left when New Yorkers showed no signs of leaving their go-to corner Chinese spots. Now they're back for a second try. [The New York Times]
- What will restaurants look like in 2061? A lot like today's—minus the poultry and oysters. [Eater]
- The sad desk lunch is often mistaken to be a recent issue—but it goes back further than you'd think. [City Lab]
- Book editor Judith Jones has an impressive roster—Julia Child and John Updike to name a few. Here's some wisdom she aquired along the way, in her own words. [Eater]
Every Sunday, we round up our favorite food reads (podcasts, and videos) from the week, so you can sit back with that cup of coffee and settle in to catch up on what's happening in the world of food.
