Happy New Year - food post
Seems like good timing for a couple of interesting food links.
Boing Boing links to a wiseGEEK post that includes photos of 200 calories worth of different kinds of food. Interesting way to put consumption into perspective...
David Ng of the World's Fair takes a look at another site, Peter Menzel Photography that posts photos of families from different countries and the amount of food they consume on a weekly basis. Peter Menzel and co-author Faith D'Aluisio have published a whole collection of these photos and the stories behind them in a book, Hungry Planet: What the World Eats. Striking.
And finally, a funny anecdote about why everything ends up tasting like dirt if you store a certain bacterial culture plate in your home refrigerator.
