The Comprehensive Julia Child Bibliography [books!]

I remember Julia Child like an old, tipsy, happy relative who cooked gourmet French meals laden with enough butter to kill a small donkey. She was my Saturday mornings. Watching her now is like watching an old friend and her cookbooks are like family heirlooms. In the spirit of celebration that's surrounded the imminent release [...]

Moving Forward, Looking Backward: Fresh, Coop, and Deeply Rooted [book review]

A hundred years ago, we ate what was local and easily grown in our county. Today we have Whole Foods, Trader Joe’s, 7/11, and McDonald’s, who serve us food from around the world all year long. But it's a mixed blessing, this access and abundance, and it's easy to look around and not actually be [...]

What's Wrong With France: Au Revoir to All That by Michael Steinberger [book review]

I like France. Granted, I haven’t been there since I hit puberty, but I have fond memories of munching on crunchy frittures, sipping on citron pressés, taking tastes of my parents’ kir royales. Sometimes, when city life is weighing heavy on me and greasy Chinese takeout is wearing thin, I fantasize about going back. So [...]

Burning Up: Seven Fires by Francis Mallmann [cookbook review]

Francis Mallmann is South America's most famous chef, which really ought to afford him more of a measure of North American fame than he's had up until now. It's not that he hasn't tried: there was an appearance on Bourdain's No Reservations, the right sorts of profiles in the right sorts of places, not to [...]

The EMD Summer Reading Guide

With beach season upon us, there's nothing we'd rather be doing than reading about other people eating, cooking, and talking about eating and cooking. We polled some of Eat Me Daily's contributors and friends, asking them for a list of their own gastronomic required reading that doesn't require kitchen proximity. We divided them into three [...]

A Truly Movable Feast: The Un-Constipated Gourmet [cookbooks]

One for the discerning cookbook collector: first-time author Danielle Svetcov's The Un-Constipated Gourmet: Secrets for a Movable Feast (buy on Amazon), a collection of recipes designed to make you poop.
Which is wonderful, really, for those who need it, but we're having a hard time keeping a straight face reading the book's official site, in [...]

The Redesign of the Julie & Julia Book Cover

View larger
Julie & Julia — and here we're talking about the book (buy at Amazon) — has gone from a classy design to, in its new tie-in form, basically a poster for the movie. In fact, the redesigned book cover looks exactly like the poster for the movie. At least they didn't use the [...]

Jam Packed: Jam It, Pickle It, Cure It by Karen Solomon [book review]

The title of Karen Solomon's wonderful Jam It, Pickle It, Cure It: And Other Cooking Projects (Ten Speed Press; buy on Amazon) is a little bit of a misnomer. While the projects outlined here are edible, and mostly require being in the kitchen, the recipes she presents are "cooking projects" the same way that quarrying [...]
