What I'm Reading Today

If cookbooks are on your holiday wish list, read this article in the NY Times. Julia Moskin reviews the latest and greatest, including a new title from Thomas Keller and a few others from some culinary heavy-hitters.

If the cook in your college house or dorm made beef rolled around a pickle and braised, then you'll have serious food envy when you read the SF Chronicle's article about the new food on campus at UC Berkeley. Goan-Style Shrimp Curry with curry leaves and sambar may seem daunting but, if you have an Indian, or even a middle-eastern, market in your town, these are staples that will be easy to find. Where was this food when I went to college?

You know I love making homemade pasta with our new Kitchen Aid pasta roller/cutter. Today in the LA Times Amy Scattergood writes about adding kids to the equation. We do it a lot over here and it is my son's favorite thing to do in the kitchen. Clean up is a total nightmare but, it's worth it.

Happy Reading and Happy Cooking
