October. What a month. A full narrative would take me days to write. Let’s just say there hasn’t been any London-exploring, pumpkin-carving, or dressing up on this end. Nevertheless, HAPPY HALLOWEEN, and here are a few links:
— Lovely article on books.
— I recently read Anthony Bourdain’s Kitchen Confidential. Before reading I didn’t know much about him, other than seeing him occasionally on Top Chef. I still think he’s extremely egotistical and self-centred, but the book is absolutely fascinating if you know very little about the restaurant industry (which I didn’t). His newer one Medium Raw is definitely on my list.
— Saveur’s The Essential Italy: the stuff of dreams.
— Calm.com (via swissmiss, I think)
— Autumn soups from The Kitchin.
— Charles Bukowski on writing. Even though I am not writing fiction I always read anything I can on the writing process.
