I've been doing a lot of food reading lately. Not, I believe, as part of the "Return to Nesting" we amurricans have undergone as a part of our recovery from "the recent traumatic events", but because, well, it's interesting. And cooking provides a nice way of thinking of priorities and life and - the word Ruhlman uses most regularly in his writing on chefs and cooking, "excellence."
Today's food pick of the internet - Textism » On the Roasting of Chicken from textism.com. A bit McSweeney's in language, a nice looking description of the act of roasting and basting.Posted by esinclai at September 08, 2002 09:30 PM |
