Bod del Grosso has posted a slide show of a visit to Hudson Valley Foie Gras. If you care about about the issue of foie, have a look at his pix end of the post (he did not see the site of the recent fire). The legendary Michael Pardus went along for the ride. And speaking of foie, another reason to love Judith Jones’s new book—her take on the foie brouhaha. Ridiculous, she says. But she’s a woman who’s fond of fried beaver tail, so no surprise perhaps. Bless her soul.
Oh, and Elements of Cooking is officially published today—if you go to a book store and they don’t have it, scream bloody murder. Or better yet, say, “That’s OK, I’ll order it from Amazon.”
And it was just picked as one of the top books of the season by amazon (just after I put this post up, hmm) in their Significant Seven. "...it's a must-have for every kitchen library--a book that will help you re-think your approach to food," says Brad (who's Brad?! I like him!). I'm right next to Richard Russo, of whom I'm a huge fan.
