Friday Tasty Links: January 24, 2014


The Friday Tasty Links feature for this week crosses over with some of my favorite websites and guilty pleasures.  Food meets movies, meets books, meets…  And we’re keeping it short and sweet with just two today.

  • 14 Books Every Food Lover Should Read (Buzzfeed)

 I have some catching up to do.  Most of these are memoirs from iconic food people from the last fifty years.  Which one from the list is your favorite?  Any ones you need to read?

The A.V. Club is one of my favorite sites for anything that has to do with movies, music, and television. They run a not so regular feature about the role of food in iconic movies and shows.  Their first choice, Big Night, was a little obvious but rarely has food been so lovingly presented in film.   The other two essays include the kitchens of Carmela Soprano and Roseanne Conner and symbolism behind a simple vanilla milkshake in Pulp Fiction.

Friday Tasty Links – April 5, 2013

This weekend will be light in terms of dish washing.  I don’t plan to do much cooking because I will be enjoying the best of Puerto Rican gastronomy at Saborea Puerto Rico. If you are planning on going, remember to message me through Twitter or Facebook or use hashtag #SaboreaPR in your posts.

My olive sablé dough is resting in the fridge and will be baked tomorrow, so watch out for a French weekends post instead. David Lebovit’s seaweed sablés are also getting the catch-up treatment.  I’ll finally check off these overdue savory crackers from my to do list. Read More…

Friday Tasty Links – March 29, 2013

I hope everyone has a great Easter/Passover/spring solstice celebration! Maybe the rate at which I have been posting has given away that I am enjoying a week off from work-work. Feels nice to catch up on my reading and relax for a bit.

Here are this week’s Friday tasty links: Read More…

Friday Tasty Links – March 22, 2013

Did you have a good week?  I’m still giddy about the NBC Latino profile published on Wednesday.

This week was a little uneventful in our kitchen, typical of the March/April work crunch.  I had plenty of greens from Sunday’s market, so we had mostly salads.  Yesterday I got around making a big batch of vegetable stock – a surprising “first”.  Some of it ended up in in a creamy cauliflower soup (sans cream), some will go into an orange-scented lentil soup.  Both are efforts to catch up with FFwD recipes.  I am especially motivated to complete all these now that I bit the bullet and signed up for the IFBC.  Dorie Greenspan will be the keynote speaker and a big bunch of the group bloggers will be in attendance.

On to this week’s Friday Tasty Links! Read More…
