Ready your forks: Expo Milano, the first world's fair that's all about food, launches this Friday. To get you up to speed, here's some recent coverage of the USA Pavilion, which was produced by the James Beard Foundation and the International Culinary Center:
USA Pavilion Blog: a preview of USA Pavilion programs, with a special focus on The Great American Foodscape, a series of vignettes on America food culture that will be on display in the building's lower level.
New York Times: the paper's "Art & Design" section highlights USA Pavilion's architectural and design features, as well as insights from architect James Biber.
Forbes: author Laurie Werner reports on the six food trucks that will rotate through the USA Pavilion site during Expo's six-month run. Serving regional American foods, the vehicles are prepared to feed the 3,000-plus daily guests expected at Expo.
