An easier way to get tacos, impossible foods, and an airplane food documentary.
6 of the best things we read this week:
- Yo quiero Taco Bell? There's a (Slack) app for that. [First We Feast]
- Pairing wine with Girl Scout cookies does not make as much sense as Pinterest has led us to believe. [Food and Wine]
- An airplane food "expert" has launched a Kickstarter to create a documentary dedicated to the subject. [Eater]
- Receipt is a recipe-inspired collection of poems from Karen Leona Anderson. Some poems, like "Pizza" and "Rhubarb" are explicitly about food; many are not; all are vivid and conversational.
- Brands like Soylent, geared towards men, are grabbing investors' attention—so why are meal replacement start-ups geared at women labeled as "too niche"? [New York Magazine]
- These start-ups are making "impossible" foods—like a bean that tastes like beef—that may forever change the way we eat and source food. [The Guardian]
