12 February 2012

It’s a cold, sunny Sunday morning, and I thought I might share a few things I’ve been reading this week.

There seems to be a lot of talk in New York about Kutsher’s Tribeca, a new Modern Jewish-American restaurant, with traditional gefilte fish and matzo ball soup on the menu but also pickled herring with yuzu and wasabi. Here are two takes: Pete Wells from the NY Times and  Adam Platt in NY Magazine. I admit Mile End tempts me more, but I would go if only for the latkes with a trio of fish roe.

I have just discovered I Married an Irish Farmer, a very lovely blog that chronicles Imen McDonnell’s adventures on an eighteenth-century farm in Ireland to which she was swept away from American city life by a dashing Irishman. Hypothetically, this radical change of life sometimes seems very tempting; seen from this angle it’s dangerously alluring.

It appears that Australian flat-whites are finally infiltrating New York coffee culture, trailing London by a couple of decades.

And because a friend recently called me a Luddite for rejecting the Kindle and living without a cell phone for six months in 2011, and because I’d like to offer more proof, here is a review of the very physical and beautifully designed Penguin’s Great Food book series, which can also be perused here, and of course ordered on Amazon.

Happy Sunday.
