One of my CUNY J-School students, Jenni Avins (presently at Saveur), sent in this latest dispatch from the fronts of food porn, blogged by her colleague Rebekah Peppler.
Speaking food porn, the tenth anniversary edition of Gastronomica will feature a roundtable discussion on the subject. My submission is due the 25th.
More letters coming in: Turns out my latest for Harper's, "Let Them Eat Cash: Can Bill Gates Profit from World Hunger?" (see pdf's of articles down right hand side of this blog) has generated a storm of written response, and that the entire August letters section will be devoted to the debate. I have answered the critics, but since Harper's isn't online (except for subscribers), you'll have to buy the July and August issues.
Will be heading out of town at the end of this week. Will send in dispatches from Paris . . .
