I still love Mimi Sheraton

I have several of her books and had purchased 1000 foods before my recent retirement.  I recently unearthed it from my Subaru and must recommend it to you all.  She has such a gift for writing and for taste that I am almost able to taste the flavor from her brief descriptions.  I am going to make baked apples, latkes (with our beloved Steve Shaw in mind),  Cioppino, and Kim Chi. What  do you think?

I think you'll need to take some photos and show us the results!  I've never cooked from any of her books, but 1000 Foods to Eat Before You Dieir?t=egulletcom-20&l=am2&o=1&a=076114168 looks like an interesting read.

For two years I worked in my company's New York office.  The boss who was a serious gourmand (and cooked in his corner office) knew her well.  I was lucky enough to meet her and join the two of them for many New York lunches.  

 

She more than anyone encouraged me to get serious and learn to cook;  something I've never regretted.

 

In those days, I thought the New York Times film critic was the best in the country, read everything he wrote.  I followed Ms. Sheraton that way, too.  And, yes, I have many of her books.
