If Art of Eating
editor and publisher Ed Behr were the subject of a feature film, Taste is the Place
wouldn't ― with apologies to Sun Ra
― be a bad title. Since launching his quarterly 24 years ago, the former carpenter has made the connection between the taste of food ― everything from albondigas to vin jaune ― and where it comes from (as well as the people behind its creation and preparation) his focus. It's a preoccupation that feels fairly prescient, considering the perspective's current prominence. Behr will be kicking it at
Omnivore on Thursday, August 19, talking taste with all comers. It's a small place, as you likely know, so show up early.
