Friday Multimedia Melange

For your perusing pleasure on a Friday afternoon, three tidbits from the food world: a slideshow of Slow Food Berkeley and friend-of-Agrariana Peter Jackson's latest workshop on making tasso and andouille, King Corn filmmakers' raising funds to finish a short film about a very small farm, and a video from Ohio about why farmers do what they do.
