Food is essential to our sense of place and our sense of self, but today—as fast food nation meets the slow food movement and eating locally collides with on-demand arugula—our food habits are shifting. The Alphabet City FOOD Festival just completed its run from September 29 to October 20, 2007. Those who were there enjoyed a celebration and exploration of our evolving relationship to the things we eat. But if you didn't quite get your fill, pick up a copy of FOOD, and carry on the feast. In this publication, writers and artists explore the cultural and emotional resonance of food, from the “everyday Dada” of mashed potatoes and Jell-O to the rocket science of food eaten by astronauts in space. Hot dogs at zero gravity. Delicious.
