DailyDirt: Ancient Food & Modern Food

from the urls-we-dig-up dept

Food has changed a lot over the last few decades. There's a lot more stuff like high fructose corn syrup in the food we eat, and formerly obscure techniques like sous-vide cooking are becoming more well-known. Here are a few quick links on some modern foods. By the way, StumbleUpon can also recommend some good Techdirt articles, too.

    Patents anyone?

    So, when will we start seeing food preparation patents? I can just see it now - "A means and device for the manufacture and preparation of ratatouille"...

      So we've gone from patents that state 'Perform certain action - With a compter' to 'Over the Internet' and 'With a mobile phone' to... 'With a rat'?

    Beer is the new wine. For those who are uneducated, there are many, many types/ flavors of beer. Most people would be truly surprised by what is available if they took the time to find out. Pairing food and beer is a great opportunity for a party and most people are shocked by the great flavors.

    BTW- For those who think Budweiser is beer, I piss out Budweiser after drinking real beer.*

    *Disclaimer; I brew beer at home.
