Calamari in the eyes of collegiatesIt is no secret that I am not a chef, but rather a logophile keen on chronicling gastronomy, travels, history, life--alright I just like to write. My dream, as is represented by the concept of the Salty Cod is to someday own a bakery. But until that day I will write, and so will others.
For your culinary pleasure, I propose a glance or two at Gonzaga University's Charter, a quarterly publication of academic and creative writing connected by an appointed theme. The first edition of the 2007-2008 academic year themed FOOD is finally available online, with articles ranging from psychological analysis of comfort food to food in politics. Take a moment to see food from the perspective of non-culinarians, the bookish type to be exact. Gonzaga here may claim some amazing young talent. Maybe if you look hard enough you might see a piece (or two) by someone you recognize.
The second and third editions of this years Charter, Death and Information, are not online yet--but stay tuned. Last years editions can be accessed in the side bar of the Charter web page (Travel, Archetypes, Language, and Machines.)
Food Charter Introduction by Editor Anne Pauw: Food consumes us. It affects almost every aspect of our lives –– enriching our souls, sustaining our bodies, transforming our world and filling our minds...
It's no Bourdain I'll tell you that, but entertaining none the less.
