Why Soul Food is Good For You - Bryant Terry of Grub

Check out our friend Bryant Terry's essay published on "TheRoot.com," a daily online magazine created by the Washington Post and Newsweek, on why soul food is good for you.

The new service of social dining

I found one of the best articles i've read in a long time over at phil morle's website.

It's an article called Better than Free by Kevin Kelly.

He talks about all the things you must do with technology to provide true service, and it echoes a lot of the ideas that come out of the social dining and underground… Continue

I spent the next few months as a diner and crossed the lines to helping organize the dinners a couple years ago.

9/16/07 - Week 1: Robiola

Of course, this doesn't mean we should reject truly subtle flavors, but it does mean we can and must rally against mass-produced, pasteurized, imitative dairy substances that masquerade as cheese" - Steven Jenkins.

Matthew Kiser and I met on the first day of the 2006 CMJ Music Marathon. I unknowingly bought brunch for someone that came to be one of… Continue

New "How We Got Started" Page

Hey Yall-
I'm glad to finally have a page up that outlines the evolution of The Ghetto Gourmet.
Of course, its stories are still being told.
I've got some other sections still to build out, but let me know what you think.

June 19, 2014 all day
