M.F.K. Fisher, Julia Child, James Beard, and the Reinvention of American Taste

Friday, December 06, 2013

Luke Barr talks about a culinary gathering in the winter of 1970, which bright together James Beard, M.F.K. Fisher, Julia Child, Richard Olney, Simone Beck, and Judith Jones in the South of France. They cooked and ate, talked and argued, and their conversations were chronicled by M.F.K. Fisher in journals and letters—some of which were later discovered by Luke Barr, her great-nephew. He writes about it in Provence, 1970: M.F.K. Fisher, Julia Child, James Beard, and the Reinvention of American Taste.

The Book of Schmaltz

Friday, November 22, 2013

Michael Ruhlman sings the praises of schmaltz (or rendered chicken fat), a staple ingredient in traditional Jewish cuisine. But schmaltz is at risk of disappearing from use due to modern dietary trends and misperceptions about this versatile and flavor-packed ingredient. The Book of Schmaltz: Love Song to a Forgotten Fat takes a fresh look at traditional dishes like kugel, kishke, and kreplach, and also ventures into contemporary recipes that take advantage of the versatility of this marvelous fat.
