Let me back up a bit. Ever since visiting NYC last summer, I've been an occasional binge reader of grub street (the food blog for New York magazine). Amongst the articles about Tailor restaurant's absinthe gummy bears and the daily reservation round-ups, I found a link to this Wall Street Journal article about cookbook bloggers.
I was particularly impressed with this blogger who is working her way through The Gourmet Cookbook. While I think the Gourmet Cookbook is definitely more accessible than some of the others people have chose, I'm just not sure I could actually do this. I love cooking, but I cook per my mood. Not at all a good dieting technique, I know, and it would also make working through one cookbook kind of difficult. I dunno, I'm pretty impressed by anyone who can keep this up, though. I'll be tuning in regularly now to see how it's going for her.
In other cooking news, I found this fantastic site while looking for some info to use in the Georgia cookbook (turned it in today!).
So, am heading to NYC this weekend and, obviously, food is on the brain! Trying to decide which spots to hit while I am there. I think a trip back to The Strand bookstore is definitely called for. We'll probably head over to the natural history museum as well since Mike has never been.
Ah well, I'm going to read now. I started The Blood Detective by Dan Waddell last night and it's super great so far.
