I’m going to try to get caught up with some reading recommendations this week, starting with this lovely one:
Marcy, Nikiko, and David Mas Masumoto. The Perfect Peach: Stories and Recipes from the Masumoto Family Farm. Ten Speed Press, 2013.
I was asked to blurb this book and did so right away (who could possibly say no to Mas Masumoto?):
I have one word for the writing, photography, essays, and topic of this book: luscious. The Masumoto family has produced a glorious paean to the fruit they raise along with delightful ideas about what to do with an abundance of this heavenly fruit: sangria, salsa, pizza, and, of course, shortcake. I can’t wait for summer.
Next public appearance
This is the rescheduling of the lecture I was supposed to give on October 10. The taxi driver went through red light at entrance to the Pulaski, was pulled over and found to be driving without a license. We never made it. The lecture is on food politics. It starts at 6:00. Free and open to the public. The Newark Museum is at 49 Washington Street. This time, I’ll take the PATH.
