Melissa Clark's Good Appetite

Thursday, November 25, 2010

Melissa Clark, writer of the weekly feature “A Good Appetite” in the New York Times Dining Section, talks about dishes that are easy to cook and that speak to everyone. In the Kitchen with a Good Appetite: 150 Recipes and Stories About the Food You Love, presents delicious, simply sophisticated recipes for foods so many of us like to eat. Clark prefaces each recipe with the story of its creation—the missteps as well as the strokes of genius—to inspire improvisation in her readers.

Leonard Lopate is the best interviewer I've ever heard, and given the breadth and depth of topics he and his guests cover, I know I'm churlish to complain... but I'm going to anyway:

Could we possibly have just a smidgen fewer interviews regarding food? Restaurants, cooking, foody-ism, again and again. How about throwing a bone to those of who don't live to eat, and trim the fat a little? Either give more time to other interviews, or explore other topics. Just one or two fewer food interviews per month, that's all I'm asking.

I love this discussion about Melissa's early experiences with cooking. When she mentioned preparing rabbit, I suddenly remembered my son's comment when, at about age 5, he learned about this possibility: "What? Do you mean people eat bunnies? People should NOT eat bunnies!"
