I just loved this description of French markets in the summertime.
Cormoran Strike is coming to the BBC! Whoop!
This pie. On huckleberries. The pictures of all these different pies. Drool.
‘The atmosphere is listening‘. Read this!
I finally got around to listening to Samin Nosrat on Radio Cherry Bombe this weekend. I totally have a chef crush on Samin. She just sounds like the kind of person I want to be friends with. She is now also a new columnist for the NYT magazine and has a list of the cookbooks that shaped her as a cook and a writer.
Chefs on the foods, mentors, and meals that influenced their cooking.
I love these photographs, contrasting college first-years with their final year selves. I wonder how I would’ve said I had changed at that point?
The truth about glamourising chef work.
Two vice chancellors talk about the challenges facing early career academics.
Trying to decide what to eat in an incredibly noisy media environment. A doctor is criticising the medical advice on Goop.
A review of a new book on food conquests of the British empire. Some interesting criticism is drawn on the use of language, and how this perpetuates ideas of the empire.
New website find. This is both hilarious and true, all at once.
I listened to an episode of the Guilty Feminist (I just love them, and they make me laugh out loud, often when I’m walking in the street so other people look at me awkwardly and I just think yeah!) called Intrepid Women and now I want to read the book they were talking about – women resisting the Nazis in occupied France.
Have a good week! x
