a surprise encounter with my news mentor, Arthur Gelb, returning me to the Times, formative if unhappy years. This year we arrived in Times Square to have a pre-show cocktail at Sardi’s. We hadn’t been there a few minutes, and I don’t know what we’d said other than placing an order for ...Donna and I arrived in New York last Tuesday to begin setting up our city outpost in the West Village, and we were struck anew by the extraordinary dining scene there. I plotted three very different theatrical performances, and they parallel the dynamism and diversity of the traditional, quirky, experimental food of NYC. I wonder if these traits cause coincidences.

I've done my share of TV but have never, ever been nervous. I was so nervous that morning. I brought three shirts and a valium. When ...Martha actually laughs! I was on
Michael has been traveling all around the United States promoting his new book Ruhlman's Twenty. Yesterday he had a long day in New York City where he appeared on the Martha Stewart Show. Michael sends his apologies, as he is nursing a wicked hangover. He returns to Cleveland today and will be appearing at the Fabulous Food Show this weekend. Please enjoy this favorite post of mine on how to Make Brioche. This post reminds you to begin preparing for the holiday season, which is quickly approaching. Original Post Date: November 30, 2010 December is the month for making brioche at home. It's the great holiday bread. Though calling it bread doesn't do it justice. Good brioche is like a cross between bread and cake. Hell, it's really ...
