Las Vegas

As I started reading “Egg Men” I was reminded of another article about food in Las Vegas in the New Yorker (a trend perhaps?).  It’s from August 2010, “The Truffle Kid” by Dana Goodyear.  It’s about food importers and touches on many themes we’ve been discussing, such as authenticity, and others that we haven’t focused on quite as much, such as sustainability…think about the costs of getting all those foodstuffs (not only seafood, but “authentic” truffles, etc) to a desert wasteland.  And Goodyear includes a brief history of restaurant culture in Las Vegas, very interesting.
