The Book of Schmaltz, and the new and updated version of Charcuterie, I'm no longer dreading the many events scheduled for fall. I'll be back next week with a proper post on NYC (and a fab new restaurant I lucked into), but in the meantime, here's a list of where and when I'll be this fall, often with that charcuterie maestro, chef Brian Polcyn. Full Events List on Facebook (or scroll down to see more detailed info). Hope to see as many of you as ...I am loving being in NYC in this glorious fall weather, but work (and the city's nefarious distractions) keep me from posting.

AndSheCooks2.com is all about: “Entertaining with ease.” Sandy is a former professional cook who loves to entertain and she simply has always given the best dinner parties—whether from her tiny Manhattan apartment when she lived there or her house in Cleveland, and now in Dayton, Ohio. She was so good at it, made it look so easy, I encouraged her to blog about it. She’s taken up the challenge and I’ve requested a brief Q&A on entertaining issues people have and what she advises. Sandy is also sharing with us her recipe for Risotto Carbonara. Michael Ruhlman: Hi, Sandy, thanks for ...I’m introducing today Sandy Bergsten, a friend since 7th grade, and a relatively new blogger who has something to say about entertaining, which is what her site
