Best of the week's food press

In case you missed some of the week's tastier articles, here's a few I enjoyed:

The New York Observer went to a screening of "Decoding Ferran Adria," a new documentary about the legendary, inscrutable Barcelona chef of El Bulli. It's an Anthony Bourdain production, so it should be entertaining. No U.S. distributor or TV outlet as yet.

Recently we were looking for a restaurant in Arcadia on a cold, stormy night. Who knew we could have eaten at Zelo Gourmet Pizzeria, which J. Gold says serves up a mean pie. Instead, we had some Chinese food that was just ok, because the famous Din Tai Fung Dumpling House was packed to the gills.

My ex-husband recently advised that I should try to find pleasure in other things besides eating, since eating is merely for nourishment. Sorry, but no dice. Anyway, both David Shaw and Laurie Winer weigh in on the apparently hot new book "French Women Don't Get Fat: The Secret of Eating for Pleasure." I myself aim for a French woman-esque approach to food, and any diet book that recommends French bread and tagliatelle sounds good to me. But I must point out -- most of the French women I know smoke, live at the top of six flights of stairs with no elevator, and are rather neurotic about food and many other subjects.

Most French women I know smoke like chimneys. The book really means Parisiennes--not those little troll like women who round you up for dinner in Marsailles.
