There is life before forty.

Have you seen this slideshow on the website of Food & Wine magazine? It features 40 people under the age of 40 who've all managed to make a difference, big or small, in the way their countrymen (and women) eat and drink. So what are the rest of us waiting for?

These were my favourites:

  • Cocoa beansMadécasse, a chocolate company making their products right where their cocoa grows: Madagascar.
  • Food artist Jennifer Rubell. Anybody who makes desserts in balloons deserves a special mention.
  • Urban & rooftop farming. These almost made me want to get a chicken. Or a house with a flat roof.
  • Matt Jennings. You've got to love a cheesemaker who dunks cheese in Belgian ale.
  • Annemarie Ahearn's farm-to-table cooking school. Where you can kill your pumpkin and eat it too.
  • Several businesses like Emily & Rob's, helping artisans to sell their products, so they can continue doing what they do best.

Check out the full slideshow here. Which ones do you like best?

On a side note: this blog post made it clear that in over a month of blogging, I hadn't used the labels "wine" or "chocolate" even once. How is that even possible?
