Around the Internet Kitchen: The Veg Version

After some feedback from a few loyal readers, I decided to make a vegetarian version of my 2010 calendar. Turns out some people don’t want to stare at a large cut of meat for an entire month. Completely understood!

The calendars are identical for nine of the twelve months. Only a few photos were replaced with vegetarian dishes.

Check it out and if you purchase a copy, let me know what you think!

In other news, I just got my first issue of Cook’s Illustrated this week. I started subscribing to it to fill the Gourmet void in my life. I’m excited to start cooking from it.

And a few links:

Against Meat – A very well-written excerpt from Jonathan Safran Foer’s new book “Eating Animals.” Will the book turn me into a vegetarian? Unlikely. Am I excited to read it? Definitely. I plan on reading it while I’m in Wyoming over Christmas. I’ll write about it for sure. (@ NY Times)

Eating Jonathan Safran FoerA funny post on a recent book signing for the above book. Apparanently he just read the excerpt that was already in the NY Magazine. Newsflash: Everybody has already read that part dude. Also, ES has a new slick design. Check it out. (@ Endless Simmer)

Homemade Oreos – I knew this had to be possible and it doesn’t look too hard! I bet these destroy the store bought variety in a side by side taste test. (@ Brown Eyed Baker)

Semolina Crusted Pandora – Peter really does amazing things with fish. I’ve never seen a fish dish on his site that I didn’t want to eat immediately. They all just look so rustic and delicious. (@ Kalofagas)

Have a good weekend everyone!

  1. Thanks for passing on the article link, Against Meat — I also wanted to point out an interesting recent piece in Forbes. "Drop That Burger" http://bit.ly/1JpXUT — profiles world famous Stanford Biochemist, Patrick O. Brown's, new personal crusade to raise consciousness against raising animals for food, by using scientific data and research. His concern is unless we adapt to our environment, we won't survive our own biosphere.

    As a lifelong Pizza Lover you already know my vote!

    Take care, Kevin

  2. I can't see red beans and rice winning that poll, but I still vote Macheesmo does a beans and rice theme; elevate the often ignored, simple bean!

    Also, isn't Cook's Illustrated great?

  3. Thanks for the veg version of the calendar. As for the Foer thing: I guess I agree with the post about Foer that you linked to. He does exhibit douchy/passive aggressive behavior, and apparently he doesn't mingle very often with hunters. But I'm still curious about whether the book is decent.

  4. I'm so in love with Cook's Illustrated. I've let all my other subscriptions expire. So much good reading in there.

    I landed on your site a short while ago and find myself going back to it all the time. It's now bookmarked!
