Edition 12 of the Language/Place blog carnival has just been posted, by Linda Evans Hofke of Lindguistics, this month's host. And it's delicious: a dinner-party full of mouth-watering delights. I'm very happy that Linda included my recent post about eating in Iceland, but hope you'll go and take a culinary and literary tour through many other blog posts as well, all on the ever-intriguing, ever-beautiful topic of Food.
Of special note to regular Cassandra readers: Mark Twain, Italy and Tabasco sauce come together in a piece set at Lake Como, by Parmanu; and Jean Morris remembers a long-ago meal in the mountains of France in Repas d'un midi lointain. Both are beautiful pieces of writing I remember from when I first read them.
And in Food Slurs: an e-Flection on Multicultural Mockings, Dorothee Lang, an international traveller who writes from Southern Germany, and Eric Wrisley, in Ohio, discuss the world of racist epithets based on food.
Great stuff, go read and enjoy!
