Varick Shute of Urban Omnibus has posted a great interview with Nicola Twilley of Edible Geography and Sarah Rich about their collaboration on the Foodprint Project—and, specifically, the Foodprint NYC event coming up this weekend at Studio-X.

The interview discusses urban food-distribution networks, the cultural and nutritional effects of food-vendor carts, the geographic distance from “farm to table,” food-contamination scares, what Sarah describes as “the ways in which food and eating behaviors influence the physical shape of the city,” Nicola’s interest in “cupcake shops as indicators of gentrification,” and much more. Be sure to check it out in full—and consider coming to the event on Saturday.
