Brew that coffee! Pour that OJ! And settle in this morning to catch up on what's happening in the world of food. Here's what we're reading (and watching) this week.
• Open those sleepy eyes and tell us: is there anything more annoying than when your joe morphs from tongue-scorching to tepid? That's what we thought. Enter these brilliant gizmos that keep your coffee the right temperature. Where have you been all our lives? (Good)
• A run-down on the whirling world of online recipe search: Foodily and Nutrition Information (The Washington Post)
• Somehow (hotly debated) we have reached a point in American culture where it is actually being proposed that schools be nut-free. Looney or logical? You tell us. (AOL/HuffPo)
• A Flea Grows in Brooklyn -- okay, a flea market, but sure does have a ring to it. The Brooklyn Flea launches Smorgasburg featuring local food vendors, putting it on the map as a must-do food destination this weekend. (The New York Times)
• Today we'll be puttin' up rhubarb, but here's another opportunity to get pickling with Bob McClure: a pickling-palooza sponsored by culture club The Society. Sign up and do it yourself, folks! (The Society)
• How you eat at work can be a major quality-of-life indicator -- how does your office kitchen (and snack supply) stack up? Feast your eyes on the 20 coolest startup kitchens, according to Business Insider. (Watch for slides 2 and 5 -- food52 has been headquartered at both!)
• Why not kickstart your weekend philanthropically by kicking a dollar or two into this project to preserve food safety on a Native American reservation. (Kickstarter -- see the video below)
