OMG!  As an English Major and a foodie, I couldn’t ask for anything more.  Once again, Marthe read an  intreview in the NYTimes and bought me a book, this time for Christmas.  WOW.  A food anthology (with recipes!!!) by Molly O’Neill.  Thomas Jefferson’s recipe for Ice Cream, my first exposure to Jean Anthelme Brillant-Savarin (how did I miss HIM?), but basically a reader for american food and map of who we are, where we have been,  and a maybe of where we are going. 

I have had the privalage of working with with some amazing chefs in the US (while I worked for Green Circle Organics\Sunnyside Farms), those who spearhead where we go, and I can honestly say, that givein the chef’s I know and the growers I have worked with, I have hope.   Hope for our farms, hope for our bodies, and hope for our tables.

Have you read it?  If not you need to.  It was very funny, but I had seen 3 reviews, and before I could run out and buy the book, my friend Marthe had given me the book for my birthday.  She said, “I had a whole theme planned out butthen I heard this interview on PNR and I called Barnes and Noble and asked if they had the book and they did and they said they could hold it for 72 hrs and I said I’ll be right over.  I knew it was perfect for you”.  I haven’t finished it, but the  book is riviting, of course maybe only if you like wine, but Marthe was right, it is the perfect book for me.
