It's really exciting for me to see food so prevalent in the news lately. Not only are the food industry and how we get our food such hot topics right now, but also because of social and multi-media, we are starting to learn more about the never-before-seen aspects of food, farming, wine-making, restaurant life and much more. I'm glad to have social media outlets available so that I can constantly keep you posted on what I'm doing and other ways that you can get involved, not only in food related affairs, but also through community events and causes. Food Republic has also done a great job in keeping its readers updated on fascinating food content. Today we'll feature food stories that have been in the news recently that have an interesting edge to them.
