The Best Cookbooks of the Decade [goodbye aughties]

While 2009 was full of spectacular cookbooks, the rest of the decade hasn't been too shabby either. With How to Cook Everything (published in 1998) and French Laundry (1999) completely changing the game for home and restaurant cookbooks alike, the next few years were already set up for greatness. Through the hundreds and hundreds of [...]

Alan Richman Takes Eric Ripert to Costco

In what he hopes is "the first installment of the next great cooking show," Alan Richman made the video "Avec Alan" over at GQ.

Lamb Neck: The Hottest Cut Of Meat This Week

In an uncanny synchronicity, both Gourmet's Adventures with Ruth and Avec Eric featured lamb neck as a star protein. The new hotness!

Avec Eric Episode One: 'Big Flavor' [review, video]
