I’m speaking with Fabio Parasecoli about his new book, Gastronativism: Food, Identity, Politics, at the Museum of the City of New York at a session chaired by Krishnendu Ray at 6:30 pm. Information is here and the ticketing link is here. This is a preview of the museum’s forthcoming exhibit, Food in New York: Bigger Than the Plate (opening September 16) and is co-presented by MOFAD (Museum of Food and Drink).
USDA updates its chart collection
The USDA has just updated its agricultural statistics charts.
Some of the charts deal with trade issues. I thought this one was especially interesting.
We (or farm animals) consume most of some commodities (pork, corn, beef). Others are mainly for export (cotton, almonds,).
This is why trade matters to much to U.S. agriculture.
