I’m on a panel moderated by Clark Wolf @clarkwolfsays, with Mitchell Davis @kitchensense, Krishnendu Ray @Raykris1, and Traci DesJardins, @chef_traci to talk about the critical topic of restaurants today and tomorrow as they face today’s horrendous challenges. This is part of the Critical Topics series at NYU’s @FalesLibrary. 5:00 p.m. sharp. Free, but registration required at this link.
It’s summer reading time, at last
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.
