Batch of links

- I was surprised to find out that some ground spices, like cloves and star anise, can dissolve plastic and should therefore be stored in glass containers.

- Do you know where pasta carbonara was invented?

- Did I link to the The Official Seinfeld Cookbook yet? Pretty cool how a show about nothing managed to produce 60 recipes!

- I really enjoyed Julia Turshen’s essay about what counts as cooking.

- I’m pretty sure this at-home salad bar wouldn’t work for my lifestyle, but I love the way it looks!

- Some people are genetically predisposed to being vegetarians.

- I am sick and tired of being given a QR code instead of a menu, and thankfully, Anne Thériault feels the same way.

- Have you heard about the breakthrough study using Xolair to treat food allergies?

- In somewhat related news, food sensitivity tests can be dangerous for kids.

- Glad I’m posting this in time for the Olympics – an episode of The Burnt Toast Podcast about how we have only recently acknowledged that female athletes need to eat, and it turns out that the keto diet and intermittent fasting are not as effective for women as for men (but those diets are still recommended to women so often!).
