Last night I spent a couple of hours in the kitchen, and I felt like an old prize fighter returning to the ring. I sweated over Bolognese, did the rope-a-dope with Quinoa Salad, and otherwise went to the mat cooking.
In other words, I didn't spend anytime writing about food. Rather than fall into the "I'm Sorry I didn't Post" mindset (which is cleverly documented by the artist Cory Archangel, the subject of a brilliant profile by my colleague Andrea K. Scott in the current New Yorker, on his Sorry I Haven't Posted blog), I'll tell you about an upcoming reading from "Man with a Pan."
On June 2, at 7 p.m. at Housing Works Used Books Café, Tom Beller, Mark Kurlansky, and Sean Wilsey will join me in reading from their contributions to "Man with a Pan." The café is at 126 Crosby Street, and the reading is free. Details here. If you're in town, I hope you can make it. Stop by and say hello.
