Two strained from the NYT magazine

October 15, 2006

The NYT Magazine on Joy’s revision…
These are good times for cookbook lovers. In August, Bon Appetit published its long-anticipated cookbook. On Halloween, Joy of Cooking will release its 75th anniversary edition. Both have served as staples for many home cooks. This article recalls Joy of Cooking’s roots and how it has continued and changed. It also provides a  look into how one cook uses  the new copy.
Complexity of food, science and politics
Michael Pollan, author of The Omnivore’s Dilemma: A Natural History in Four Meals, writes an interesting article that addresses some of the complex issues raised by the recent E. coli outbreaks. There is a great deal here, from the practice of irradiating to the influence of political interest groups.
