News Food – What is it and Should I Worry About It?
When I first started out back in the 70’s I was really confused by all the talk about news food. At the time it seemed that the only thing to be concerned about was whether or not the local coffee shop had a free delivery service. As it turns out, they do but it is really just one of those things. I also discovered that there are newsprint like publications in most every city and I assume somewhere else. I am sure there are some places that have magazines, but they seem to be geared more for women or some other group that doesn’t read a whole lot of reading material. So, when I first started out I was a little confused about all the hoopla about this new food stuff.
The first thing I noticed when it came to cooking with the newspaper was the long article on the different types of foods that could be prepared from them. There was even a recipe section that was filled with stuff like pretzels, corn chips, and wieners. There were recipes for grilled chicken, corn on the cob, shrimp, macaroni and cheese, potato salad, ribs, and so much more. It almost made me think that there were going to be a Food Network channel on some channel that would dedicate itself solely to cooking and news. If that is what is happening I might start watching.
The other thing that got my attention was all the different food clubs that were springing up around the country. I didn’t realize that there was a club for every type of food that you can think of. There are news readers for people that are into all different types of gourmet cooking, there are people who read health news, people who are into farmers’ markets, and so forth. All you have to do is go online and type in what you are interested in and you will find newsreaders for all types of things.
