United States Food Map

When I stumbled up on this food map, created by Lucy Stephens, a graphic artist and book designer, I was amazed. The detail is awesome, and I could spend a long time peering into corners of each state to find another treasured food. California’s  avocados and figs, Washington’s salmon, coffee and apples, Oklahoma’s pecan pie, Georgia’s grits, Maine’s blueberries and lobster, and New York’s pretzels and bagels!

I think this print would look beautiful framed in any kitchen or dining room, and it makes a great gift for a foodie!

You can read an interview with the artist here
Or buy the print (in multiple different colors!) here

Food & Philosophy

i knew i had to share this once i came across it, the jean-paul sartre cookbook, written by marty smith, is a hilarious look at food and philosophy.

my favorite entry, omelets and the meaninglessness of existence :

“Still working on the omelet. There have been stumbling blocks. I keep creating omelets one after another, like soldiers marching into the sea, but each one seems empty, hollow, like stone. I want to create an omelet that expresses the meaninglessness of existence, and instead they taste like cheese. I look at them on the plate, but they do not look back. Tried eating them with the lights off. It did not help. Malraux suggested paprika.”
