The food and drink issue

(article, Culinate staff)

The fourth annual issue of the New York Times Sunday magazine dedicated entirely to food and drink came out yesterday. 

Mark Bittman's precise yet passionate introduction is a manifesto for better eating, while Michael Pollan's answers to reader questions include his takes on such topics as genetically engineered food and organic food.

Here's just one takeaway from Bittman: "There is the personal, and there is the political. As well as you might feed yourself and your kids, the food 'system' is still out there, stuffing some people and starving others, poisoning the earth and the air, destroying cultures everywhere."
