Marco Pierre White’s ‘White Heat’: A Game-Changer, Revisited - NYTimes.com


A cookbook by another name? Read on:

"It was the photographs in “White Heat” that put the book across. No cookbook had looked like this one. The book’s photographer, Bob Carlos Clarke, shot Mr. White’s kitchen at Harvey’s, which opened in 1987, as if it were a war zone. The black-and-white photos were filled with blood, with cigarettes dangling from lips and with rattled, unshaven young men who appeared to be on a mission up the Congo."

In the Kitchen With Jackson Pollock




Soon to be released, and combining two of my favorite subjects, this publication is destimed to be the ultimate coffee table artbook/cookbook:

"Jackson Pollock the artist needs no introduction—but perhaps lesser known is Jackson Pollock the gardener, baker, and dinner-party host. From starters and entrees to side dishes, breads, and desserts, Dinner with Jackson Pollock features more than fifty recipes collected from handwritten pages scrawled by Jackson; his wife, artist Lee Krasner; his mother, Stella; or traded among their many friends in the town of Springs on Long Island, interspersed with Jackson s masterworks, still lifes of the Pollock-Krasner home, and beautiful photographs of each delectable recipe, plus delightful tales from Jackson and Lee s family and local friends, for a truly unique and insightful portrait of a great American artist."

Do TV Cooking Shows Make Us Fat? : The Salt : NPR



I've often wondered about what foods are promoted, how they are presented, and more, all for the sake of ratings rather than for health and nutrition:

" 'Our main finding is that it seems that if you watch food television and then actually cook the recipes that you see, you're at risk for having a higher BMI [body mass index],' says study author Lizzy Pope, who's a researcher in nutrition and food science at the University of Vermont."
