New York Times Backtracks on The Chopping Block

As a sort of post mortem on The Chopping Block, The New York Times' Alessandra Stanley goes into the reasons why the show failed with viewers and ultimately was yanked off the air. Unfortunately, it's an infuriatingly different evaluation than the one found in her original review of the show.
In the post mortem, Stanley explains [...]

Alice Waters' Media Hat Trick: 60 Minutes, New York Times, and Daily News ALL IN ONE WEEKEND

Whoever's doing PR for Alice Waters has got it going on. This weekend, she had three media appearances: An op-ed in The New York Daily News, a fluff profile in the New York Times Sunday Styles section, and a ridiculous segment on CBS's 60 Minutes.
Let's break them down, shall we?
Alice Waters vs. Fast Food in [...]

David Pogue: Rice ≠ Risotto

We loved the lede to David Pogue's review of a new cell phone, the Samsung Memoir:
I’ll never forget the time I visited a Riverwalk restaurant in San Antonio and ordered risotto: rice that’s been stirred in broth until it’s rich, creamy and perfect. But what the waiter brought to the table wasn’t risotto. It was [...]

Beth Wareham, director of lifestyle books at Scribner and the editor of “The Joy of Cooking,” wondered aloud [...]

Defining Ethnicity With Food

In the New York Times' City section this weekend, Swaranjit Singh, a 55-year-old real estate broker and Bellerose resident who's running for City Council, defined ethnicity by the food people eat. The Times writes:
If he could unite voters of South Asian ancestry, or, as he referred to them, “roti-eating people,” and get them to turn [...]

Redesigning the Super Bowl Logo in Food

The New York Times has a slideshow of designers reworking the Super Bowl logo. We liked the concept of Julia Hoffmann's food-based version, combining pizza, burgers and chicken wings:
Since Super Bowl Sunday is the second largest U.S. food consumption day, following Thanksgiving, I propose to mark this unofficial second (or for some people first) national [...]
