Food News

My favorite newspaper is The Economist.  Two recent food stories caught my eye:


There is a soy panic in British Columbia.  Shortage of China Lily soy sauce has devolved to crisis.  Scalpers are asking ten times the normal price.  Particularly affected are indigenous British Columbians who regard China Lilly as a traditional staple food along side curried bologna.  China Lily is addressing the shortage as best they can.  Christopher Wong, grandson of the founder, is grateful:  "Loyalty on that scale is unheard of in this day and age," he says.


The other story was about enterprising Cambodians filling Vietnam's appetite for field rats.  Though field rat consumption in Vietnam has been down after a study found 56 percent of rats served in restaurants tested positive for coronaviruses.
