food stuff

August 12, 2009


hello, hello.

today, i thought i’d share a few food-related bits…

++ today is opening day at delancey. join me in sending best wishes to molly and brandon – cheers to you both! here’s to a very smooth opening. (some press about delancey, and a little preview). i’m looking forward to a visit next month.
++ last weekend, i spent a lot of time at my local bookstore engrossed in this book, “terrine” by stéphane reynaud (on the webpage, click on “look inside” underneath the book’s cover image to view a few of the stunning photos). i’m not sure if i’m ready to prepare terrines at home, but i am surely putting this one on my wish list (the layout and the photography are unbelievable). after reading a great article recently about terrines in “the art of eating“, perhaps it is time to make one of my own. either way, if you have a chance to flip through this one, do so.
++ speaking of books, i can’t wait to see nigel slater’s new book (watch the related video for more info) (and thanks for the tip, valeda). it’s available in the UK in september, but i’m not sure when it will come out in the U.S.  hopefully soon.

i hope your day includes some good eating!

    thanks for all the great links! that nigel slater book sounds amazing.

    i’ve thought the same with the terrine book and decided not to get it for now until i make a concerted effort to devote more time to my other cook books. then i’m allowed to give terrine a go… of course i might make an exception for the new nigel slater. i can send you a copy when it comes out if you like!

    hey, i’d be happy to send you a copy of nigel’s book when it comes out. i am also a fan :)
    as for a delancey, i want, badly. nearly badly enough to book a ticket across the pond!

    I wish I had more money so I could buy more cheese.

    like eating at delancey, making a terrine is something i’m hoping to accomplish by spring.
