Grist magazine, if you haven’t checked it out already, is a constant source of excellent writing, especially when it comes to food and agriculture. In the past week, they’ve produced a great piece by our own Slow Food leader and blog contributor Chef Kurt Friese, as well as an interview of Slow Food advisory board member Michael Pollan, by Grist man-in-the-field (literally) Tom Philpott.

Philpott has been doing a wonderful series on Iowa, examining the locus of all of our corn production (has this been the Year of the Corn? I think it has, thanks to Pollan, Philpott, and “King Corn”), and Kurt’s article is a great contribution from the chef’s perspective–what is it like to create a sustainable food community in big industrial corn country?
