Curries, jubilees, subsidies, and more of the best things we read this week.
- A hard frost this spring prevented 90% of Northeastern stone fruit crops—peaches, plums, nectarines, apricots—from coming to fruition. What does it mean for the farmers? [New Food Economy]
- Coming soon to New York City waterways: a floating "food forest" called Swale that poses the question, "What if food were a public service and not an expensive commodity?" [Curbed New York]
- On government subsidies for farms, whether corn makes us fat, and how we could incentivize people to eat better food. [National Geographic]
- One of the world's most expensive, beloved, and sought-after teas is at the center of a messy controversy—and is regularly counterfeited. [California Sunday]
- What can the food movement learn from Black Lives Matter? [Civil Eats]
- Food world experts (including Marion Nestle and Sam Fromartz) on what could happen if the secretary of agriculture became the Vice President of the United States—and whether it could be a good thing.
- Repurposing food waste is nothing new. (Remember "gleaning"?)
- The problem with "curry"? It's become synonymous with "Indian" food, but it's actually a European idea imposed on Indian cuisine.
- Cherries jubilee should be exactly as joyful as it sounds (and has a history of celebration, and ties to a queen).
- Good versus best—and an argument for choosing the former when it comes to making dinner.
