Great Stories Early June {Friday Five}

strawberry rhubarb pie It's shaping up to be another warm day, with thunderstorms crashing through the sky already. I recommend lazing near a fan and reading these thoughtful articles from across the Internet.

1) When Adventurous Eating is Really Just Picky Eating in Sheep's Clothing by The Yummy Mummy could have been written about my daughter, and quite possibly your child(ren).

2) I have met the venerable Lori, aka Twixlen, the subject of Kate's new series, The Food In This Town. I can't wait to see who Kate profiles next.

3) CMH Gourmand featured Latitude 41 last week, one of my favorite restaurants in town. I totally agree with his assessment that Chef David Maclennan brings great substance to the downtown dining scene.

4) The summer issue of Edible Columbus arrived this week. The bright and juicy cover photo reminds me that this wild weather will yield handsome crops soon.

5) On the more serious side, Laurie David reported that the Natural Resources Defense Council, Union of Concerned Scientists, and other groups sued the FDA in late May for allowing factory farms to overuse antibiotics in meat production and the expense of human efficacy for such drugs.
