If you’re looking for fascinating coverage of global economics, politics, technology and business, you’re probably already reading Quartz (QZ.com). If you’re looking for interesting coverage about what and how we eat, you’re very likely not reading Quartz. I’m writing this to tell you that you should be.
The online publication by Atlantic Media is more than a year old now, and is well-known in many circles for its perspective on what it calls its ‘obsessions’. These changing themes usually relate to the topics I mentioned above, but there’s been some really compelling food content posted over the last month or two, and I predict it will soon reach obsession status. Take a quick read of the pieces below for an idea of what to expect. Cheers.
