Traveling the World in Search of Recipes

Author Allan Karl wanted an adventure. So he got on his motorbike and took off. Five continents, 35 countries, 40 recipes, and three years later, he ended up with one book.  Forks: a Quest for Culture, Cuisine and Connection is his bound collection of the culture, cuisine, and experiences he found along the way. We got Karl to share a few tastes of adventure and insight with us through recipes and photographs from the book for you to feast your eyes upon.

America's Most Endangered Rivers of 2012

America's Most Endangered Rivers of 2012

American Rivers, a Washington, D.C.-based organization working to protect and restore the country's rivers and streams, has just released its 27th annual list of the 10 most endangered waterways in America. Topping the list this year is the Potomac, which runs straight through the nation's capital. That's fitting, given that American Rivers is using its list as part of its effort to spur Congress to take action. “This year’s Most Endangered Rivers list underscores how important clean water is to our drinking water, health, and economy,” said Bob Irvin, president of American Rivers, in a press release. “If Congress slashes clean water protections, more Americans will get sick and communities and businesses will suffer.
