Great Food

In an ambitious effort to bring together the best food writing in 400 years, Penguin has put together a fantastic series: Great Food. Many of the authors talk about food with heart, but share an acute awareness for the ethics and politics of eating.

I am especially taken with Alice B. Toklas' contribution, an excerpt from her 1954 cookbook, wonderfully titled Murder in the Kitchen. Charming and funny, the first section of the book, Dishes for Artists, discusses Alice's many ventures in cooking for artists. Learn to cook the dish Alice made to impress Picasso.
