One Big Table

Tuesday, December 21, 2010

Former New York Times food columnist Molly O’Neill discusses taking a cross-country road trip to find out what Americans cook at home. Her latest book, One Big Table: 600 Recipes from the Nation's Best Home Cooks, Farmers, Fishermen, Pit-masters, and Chefs, is a celebration of American home cooks and a portrait of what we eat and why. It includes heirloom recipes from communities such as Virginia’s Eastern Shore to New Mexico.

columbus restaurants tout "seasonality"??

for a year of my life, i was in columbus on a weekly basis. it has a proliferation of malls and chain restaurants. the sign i needed to leave and never go back was the baffling addition of cheese to an order of sushi i experienced.

not buying this.

How about the claim that "buffalo chicken wings" are the only true American dish? Since it was created by accident in Buffalo, NY.

Molly said : There is a split by class in food -- but you didn't let her complete that idea - can we go back to it

Barney's holiday windows pay hommage to contemporary chefs. However, Alice Waters was not included. That really surprised me. Do you have thoughts on that?
