This week’s In Media Res theme focus is Food Media Reprise (November 25 - November 29). During the week of Thanksgiving, we wanted to draw your attention to the many food related conversations we have had in the past by reprising our recent week on Food Media<http://mediacommons.futureofthebook.org/imr/theme-week/2013/48/food-media-november-25-november-29> and by alerting you to some of the topical conversations from our archives. Before you are knocked out by tryptophan, revisit our food weeks from this Summer<http://mediacommons.futureofthebook.org/imr/theme-week/2013/26/celebrity-chefs-june-24-june-28-2013> and the Spring of 2011<http://mediacommons.futureofthebook.org/imr/theme-week/2011/09/food-and-media-february-28-march-4-2011>, or snack on these other tasty treats:
