Summary:

Web and food cultures are increasingly intertwined. Is this a good thing? We talk with Dan Pashman, creator of The Sporkful podcast about food, where technology is taking it and which is the superior licorice: Twizzlers or Red Vines (spoiler: it’s Twizzlers).

PASHMAN

Whether it’s sharing recipes, scoring obscure spices or thrusting pictures of your sushi to your entire social graph, the web has pushed food culture to new heights. On a special edition of the GigaOM Podcast we talk with Dan Pashman, founder of The Sporkful, a web site an blog devoted to eating. Along with my colleague, Kevin Fitchard, we talk about the intersection of food and technology, where it’s going and collectively wish the whole bacon thing would finally be over.
