Food News Round Up: Trucks, Deserts, and Porn

by Emily Contois

On any other blog, it might be difficult to draw connections between trucks, deserts, and pornography, but not here where food is the common thread. While food trucks are often in the news as they sweep the culinary landscape, this week’s Food News Round Up includes articles that look at the food trend both logistically and critically. Recent studies questioning the link between food deserts and obesity incited much debate and a selection are included here. And the popular viral video “Eat It, Don’t Tweet It” has elicited responses regarding the state of food porn, some of which were already discussed in the BU Gastronomy Facebook group. So whichever whets your appetite, dig in and eat up.
