I love the Food section of the New York Times. It is the créme de la créme. Always the best of the best. (Mark Bittman’s Minimalist column? Enough said.)
All of her columns focus on a particular dish or recipe, and discuss its story (or history rather) from past to present. It’s really fascinating. The history of food isn’t something I really think about on a regular basis, and I love how she picks things apart and puts them back together. Everything becomes so simple and clear.
I really love the graphics for this segment too. Especially the online multimedia graphics. The photography is great, and I love how they break down recipes/food into a science. Very Alton Brown.
Don’t you love them? I feel like I learn so much every time I read one of her columns. Plus, the photos are just delicious.
