Four Seasons, Lunch Spot for Manhattan’s Prime Movers, Moves On

"...Food historians now see it as the starting point for a series of trends that came to define American dining: the cult of freshness and organically grown ingredients, which Alice Waters embraced at Chez Panisse; the inventive interpretation of regional American dishes, which became known as New American cooking; the international blending of styles and ingredients, later described as fusion..."

Osteria Francescana Is Named the World's Best Restaurant - Bloomberg


"The restaurants on the 2016 list were picked by a total of almost 1,000 members of the industry, including restaurateurs, chefs, writers and gourmets.

Cook Your Own Adventure: 11 Cookbooks For Kitchen Dreamers

What We Learn From Old Recipes - The New York Times



"Out with the old and in with the new! Or so the saying goes. But it often goes the opposite way for me: In a reading life full of recipes, I like old ones better. I didn’t realize how much, or why, until I recently started writing a book updating a hundred of them — mostly from the 20th century, but all with timeworn roots."

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.

"Being "born with a silver spoon in your mouth" has long been known to have advantages. Apparently, eating off a silver spoon also has its perks — it seems to make your food taste better."
