Tourtière: A French-Canadian Christmas Carol - The New York Times


'...You can make a tourtière well or badly and still succeed in delivering a handsome and satisfying meal, a balm against the bleakness of winter. “I’ve never had a slice of tourtière and spoonful of ketchup and not liked it,” David McMillan, the bearish chef and an owner of Joe Beef in the Little Burgundy section of Montreal, told me recently. “I especially love a tourtière made by someone who can’t really cook. It’s honest.”'

The Connoisseur’s Way to Pair Food With Beer - WSJ


"Beer and food have long made a natural, if lowbrow, pair: unremarkable brews, functional (read: intoxication-abating) fare (burgers and brats, bar nuts and Buffalo wings). But many of today’s craft beers are as complex, as revered and, sometimes, as pricey as fine wines. They might even be served in delicate stemware. And so it’s no surprise that beer has moved in on wine’s domain, the white tablecloth."

Maureen Abood’s ‘Rose Water & Orange Blossoms’ Takes You to Lebanon - NYTimes.com


Lebanese cuisine, Ms. Abood said, “is extremely refined and very aromatic. You’ll find savory dishes laced with cinnamon and filled with herbs like parsley and mint. There’s a mix of bright flavors with lemon, there is richness from delicious butter toasted nuts, lamb, beef and chicken. And it’s healthy too, with chickpeas and bulgur and vegetables, and big salads with romaine and tomatoes and cucumbers. And plenty of yogurt to go with it all.”

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:

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."
