1. Depression Cooking with Clare
Karen, my high-school best friend and avid food blog reader tipped me off to a series of heart warming cooking videos that feature a 93-year old cook and great grandmother. Clare, the host and historian of the cooking series, cooks resourceful Depression-era dishes and recounts her memories from the 30’s and early 40’s.
With budgets tight and many families facing lean times, Clare’s recipes are not only timely but offer great insights into making the most when times are tight.
2. Fired up about tipping
I work in a restaurant, so I take tipping very seriously. Surprisingly, so does food writer and NY Times food critic Frank Bruni. His insightful piece about tipping has gotten more than a few feathers ruffled and has inspired many other NY Columnists to chime in.
3. Food Woolf featured on Public Kitchen Radio
Here we go with the shameless self promotion: my feature on Boston’s Daily Catch Restaurant and Restaurant Week is featured on WBUR’s Public Radio Kitchen, Boston’s National Public Radio station.
4. SK’s Donuts Revisited:
A recent trip back to SK’s Donuts reveals that the classics (glazed and sugar raised) are remarkable expressions of fried dough. If you live in the Hollywood/Fairfax area of Los Angeles you have GOT to check out these donuts. They’re open 24 hours a day, so you have no excuse.
