the food issue

New Yorker Nov 24, 2008Yesterday and today, while shaving, I read the latest issue of the New Yorker and I am so glad the election is over!  Finally, no more Bush-bashing, and no more Obama-touting, and we are back to their normally scheduled interesting articles.  This week's was "the food issue", as you might expect with Thanksgiving coming up, and there were great articles on (among many other things) Who makes the best BBQ in Texas? (apparently it's not who you think), The Rise of Extreme Beer (who knew?), and Among the Knifemakers (a great introduction to the art of knives, especially chef's knives).

I promise this blog won't become a New Yorker review site - well, I guess it is already :) - but I must tell you this is a great trend.  Yay.
