Cope on Arugula Via Edible Idaho


The newest installment of Edible Idaho aired today on 91.5 Boise State Radio.

Guy Hand—who doubles as the Idaho Statesman's food critic and runs one of my favorite Web sites, Northwest Food News—sliced into the humorous side of politics and food with this latest installment The Arugula Wars: Food as partisan politics.

Do liberals and conservatives eat different food?

Hand posed the question to BW columnist Bill Cope. Personally, Cope said, he's more of a red stater when it comes to grub, and then he told the story of trying to bait Walt Minnick with a food choice: "conservative" Coors and porkrinds or "liberal" wine and cheese. The verdict? Minnick declined them both.
