It’s Friday afternoon, and that means it’s time for me to give you a little weekend reading from around the web. Here are a few food related items that I thought might interest you.

Looks like food foraging is an up-and-coming career. One Northeast man forages for high end restaurants in Maine and New York City.

The days are shorter, the air colder, and Evan Strusinski moves easily through the woods, hunting for the last mushrooms and berries of the season.

With what seems like a sixth sense, he spots a mammoth maitake mushroom at the base of a towering oak tree. He has just the client.

I like this list of 25 Sustainable Servingware & Tabletop Sources from Apartment Therapy. If you need some new pieces for your holiday entertaining, these are good places to look.

Just in time for entertaining season, here's our biggest source list yet for eco-tabletop — whether you're shopping for gifts or for yourself. This long list is divided into three parts: 1) dishes made from mindful materials, 2) servingware that's fair trade, and 3) vintage tabletop ripe for re-use.

Here’s another useful list – the top 20 ingredients used in bread. If you’ve ever wondered what Azodicarbonamide in your store bought loaf of bread is and if you actually want it in your bread, this list will help you figure it out.

Today we’ll take a look at the other ingredients in bread. To do this, we analyzed the ingredient lists of over 2,000 breads.  The average list had  20-25 ingredients! That’s 5 times more ingredients than you need for a basic bread (flour, water, yeast, salt). It’s important to note, some ingredients, such as dough conditioners used in tiny amounts are not required to be labeled!

If you want to know the carbon footprint of each glass of wine you drink, one New Zealand wine company is going to help you out with that.

A New Zealand wine company has become the first in the world to declare its carbon footprint for each glass.

Bottles of Mobius Marlborough sauvignon blanc - which go on sale today - will show the carbon emissions for a 125ml glass on the label.
