Food. We all need it. Our world of food is simultaneously local and global. Our relationship with food is one of the most intimate and important in our lives, but many aspects of food are left unexamined beyond the calorie count.

What is food? What is fair food? What kind of food should I eat? What kind of food should the world eat? How can I grow my own food? Where do we buy food? What exactly is MSG? Where can I find a farmers market? Why does that tomato look funny? How do pineapples get to Minnesota? Does anyone have another recipe for kale?

There are a lot of questions to be asked, and it is often overwhelming. This blog is aimed at creating a place to discuss everything from how to cook your own food to how our decisions about what we put on our plates affect others.

There will be recipes. There will be photos. There will be humor. There will be emotion. It will be personal. It will be political. There will be facts.

And there will be opinions.

Ever since I was a kid, I’ve generally had an opinion about most things. My dad called it “The World According to Emily.” So today, I bring you, Food According to Emily.

Eat up.

    I love this! You write so elegantly and to the point. Will have to check out the Blendtec blender because I am also in the market for a new blender. Love the idea of sunflower seeds in the pesto as I am opposed to pinenuts (ick, turpentine!) Please write an article on microwaves to enlighten the rest of us (though I generally only use mine to heat water!)

      Thanks Sandy!
      I will definitely do some writing about microwaves, thanks for the suggestion/reminder! I’ll admit, I use mine much more often than I’d prefer, mostly out of laziness or not making enough time and I am working to move away from that. Stay tuned!
