Is Italy’s First ‘Vegetarian City’ a Recipe for Disaster? 
There’s lots of opposition to Turin’s mayor’s plan to promote a vegetarian diet, but there’s also support. “Egidio Dansero, an academic who teaches culture and politics at the University of Turin, says: “This could be a really positive step in cultural and economic terms. We can embrace both diets. It is because we are a city that’s known for its cuisine, the home of ‘Eataly’ and the slow food movement that I believe we can have a big impact on food culture and education inside and outside of Turin.” 

Hard to believe, but this market vendor was selling even more hot pepper varieties than Grandora Gardens!

Beer Master in Training
My Beer Year by Lucy Burningham sounds like a worthwhile read. Burningham describes the year and a half she spent preparing to become a Certified Cicerone. Her studies included home brewing, visiting hop farms, and travelling to Belgium.
