I’m moderating an online webinar on the new Slow Food book, Ark of Taste, with authors David S. Shields and Giselle Kennedy Lord. For information and registration click here. It’s at 4:00 p.m. EST.
Revolving door: USDA –> NRA
I love keeping track of the revolving door between government food agencies and the food industry. Thanks to Food Chemical News for this latest example: Beth Johnson, interim undersecretary for food safety at USDA, resigned today to take a position as executive vice president of public affairs at the National Restaurant Association.
Let’s wish her well on the new job and hope she helps restaurant owners stay out of food safety troubles.
