For Afro-vegan chef Bryant Terry recipes are political
By Dorene Internicola NEW YORK (Reuters) - Cookbook writing is a form of food justice for activist chef Bryant Terry, author of “Afro-Vegan: Farm-Fresh African, Caribbean and Southern Flavors Re-mixed.” The 100 recipes in Terry’s fourth book, all devoid of meat and meat products, reach pointedly back to before the prepackaged, processed food that he says characterizes too many modern African-American diets to tap the cuisines at the roots of the African diaspora. “A lot of my work is about helping people remember that this is a part of our legacy, that we can extend beyond the American south, to the Caribbean, West and Central Africa, where Africans were brought from. Many of those diets were largely vegetable based.” The 40-year-old Terry, who lives in Oakland, California, spoke to Reuters about the intersection of diet and politics, why he is reluctant to call himself a vegan, and his belief that food can heal.   Q: Did you always want to be a chef? ... Given the health crisis in many low-income communities of color, I really felt that there’s a larger social justice movement that is missed if it didn’t address the food crisis in the American diet and the effect on people of color, so I decided to go to the Natural Gourmet Institute in New York City.   Q: Are you a vegan?

(Reuters) - The son of Joe Paterno, the legendary Penn State football coach and boss of convicted child sex abuser Jerry Sandusky, said in a new book that he was propositioned by a pedophile - possibly a university professor who molested a series of boys - at age 13. Jay Paterno said he never told his father about that day in the summer of 1981, which is described in "Paterno Legacy: Enduring Lessons from the Life and Death of My Father," published by Triumph Books, a sports publishing house in Chicago. I feared that I'd be judged," Jay Paterno wrote in the book. Joe Paterno died at age 85 in January 2012, months before a report found he and other school leaders covered up Sandusky's sexual abuse of boys to protect the university's football program, and as a result the attacks continued.

The comments came a week after 33 U.S. states and territories and lawyers for a class of consumers submitted the settlement for Cote's preliminary approval, and to avoid a scheduled Aug. 25 damages trial.
