Quirky Food

February 15, 2012

Gardeners are known for patience and hope, waiting for the snow to melt into blossoms and, finally, hoping for bounty. But what if gardeners eschewed patience, and instead, took up their spades in revolution towards rebel gardening plots? Some gardeners today are angry about urban deserts, unsustainable town planning and the food industry in general. This blog series promises to take us inside these movements and prove that botanicals can make a political statement.

Have you ever been out to eat with a person who hates cilantro? How about IPA beers? It turns out that the taste, for some people, is strongly reminiscent of soap or lotion… probably not what they were hoping for with their chips and salsa!

Speaking of IPAs, craft and premium beer brands are taking over the beer market—good news for our small local breweries like Short’s and North Peak—but very bad news for the huge breweries churning out 30 packs of light beer. The video embedded in this article provides a history of brewing and the rise of the little guy.
