Did you get any good food-related gifts this year? I got the Gourmet cookbook and the Cooking Light cookbook -- guess I'll still be ordering the Zuni Cafe cookbook myself.
Matt got me a cool little book called Everything I Ate: A Year in the Life of My Mouth by Tucker Shaw, a New York writer who took a picture of every single thing he ate, from beef jerky to sushi, for an entire year. After I looked through it, I was wondering, what's with the cold cereal every night at midnight? Fortunately I found an interview on Gothamist that answered this and other important questions. It's really interesting to see the pattern that emerges when you can see what someone ate every single day. And Shaw, like me, is clearly someone who wants every single thing he puts in his mouth to be really good. I don't think there's any fast food, and no frozen food either, which is more than I can say. Damn, I need a New York pizza after reading this.
