Anthony Bourdain was known for traveling the world exploring undiscovered gems and sharing cuisines and cultures through the eyes and ears of local guides. I’m becoming known (by some—at least me!) for trying all the oddities that aren’t on the market yet.
This week, I tasted on steroids. Today’s newsletter is a photo journal of some of the products I swirled and sampled while on-the-go in New York. I hope you enjoy it.
There’s so much more to share but I don’t want to bog you down. Consider this an amuse bouche of what I devoured this week. For folks in the industry, I’ve added a paid option to my newsletter and will be starting a paid-only version that focuses on what I’ve tasted that will go deeper into formulation, sensory analysis, branding and impressions. Intrigued? I hope so. Have a great 4th of July if you celebrate that stuff.
Where you can find me?
I’m quoted in a issue of Food Fix about cell-cultivated meat’s recent USDA approval. If you don’t know it, Food Fix is a wonderful policy-focused newsletter by Helena Bottemiller Evich that you should subscribe to.
Matt Newberg of Hngry.TV “rolled his eyes” over my recent story in Fast Company about the future of all cultivated meat. I wrote that it will be a hybrid mish-mash of plants and meat cells. Matt wrote an Op-Ed about what *he* thinks of the industry in response to mine. (I love when this happens.)
