Binding the Nation in Its Love of Meatloaf - The New York Times



"...Propelled by their own Proustian meatloaf memories and leveraging their connections to politicians, chefs and other journalists, Mr. Bruni and Ms. Steinhauer have attempted the seemingly impossible: a comprehensive and compelling collection of 49 recipes for meatloaf..."


Binding the Nation in Its Love of Meatloaf - The New York Times

And more on the book:

"Frank Bruni and Jennifer Steinhauer share a passion for meatloaf and have been exchanging recipes via phone, email, text and instant message for decades. A MEATLOAF IN EVERY OVEN is their homage to a distinct tradition, with 50 killer recipes, from the best classic takes to riffs by world-famous chefs like Bobby Flay and Mario Batali; from Italian polpettone to Middle Eastern kibbe to curried bobotie; from the authors' own favorites to those of prominent politicians. Bruni and Steinhauer address all the controversies (Ketchup, or no? Sauté the veggies?) surrounding a dish that has legions of enthusiastic disciples and help you to troubleshoot so you never have to suffer a dry loaf again. "

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."

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."

Review: ‘Twelve Recipes’ by Cal Peternell - NYTimes.com


From The New York Times:

"Cal Peternell’s smart new cookbook, Twelve Recipes, recently published by HarperCollins, is one of the last type, a cookbook written for new cooks, for uncertain cooks, for good cooks looking for simple inspiration, for anyone wrestling with a New Year’s resolution to cook more and better. It arose from conversations that Mr. Peternell, a longtime chef at Chez Panisse in Berkeley, Calif., had with his oldest son as he headed off to college: a kitchen rat who had never learned to cook, who had merely seen it all happen around him, who needed to be taught how to shop, how to warm garlic in a pan, how to make a vinaigrette, how to braise."
