Foodie Things

Even though Carol in Maryland started her career as a speechwriter for Geroge H.W. Bush, she’s still ok (thanks, Google search). That’s because her blog, French Laundry at Home, is a great tour of Thomas Keller’s ridiculous home cookbook that’s much more of a coffee table conversation piece than actual cookbook in most households.

She named her lobsters Celine when she made lobster salad, and cursed Keller’s pastry chef when a dessert was too fussy (he wrote her back about that one). She’s basically a perfect foil to Mark Bittman, the Minimalist column guy over at the New York Times. I admire her ambition to recreate Keller’s recipes at home, but for now, I’m sticking with Bittman and his kitchen on the cheap and easy.
