Thousands and thousands more recipes to cook this weekend are available on Cooking. Save the ones you like, please; not to be a crab, but it’s far easier than sending me a note asking me to dig out a recipe I mentioned in this newsletter a few weeks ago with, like, lamb and mint, maybe chervil? We should be corresponding about art and poetry! Then rate the recipes when you’re done cooking, so that others can benefit from your exquisite taste. And, if you’ve discovered a fiddle or an interesting ingredient substitution, leave a note on the recipe as well. We learn the most fascinating things.
Now, over lunch today, you might read Jonathan Mahler’s fascinating look at Jeff Zucker and Donald Trump, the president Mr. Zucker helped create: “CNN Had a Problem. Donald Trump Solved It.” Also, Daniel Duane’s profile of the chef Daniel Patterson, in The California Sunday Magazine: “Disillusioned with fine dining, one of the world’s great chefs took on fast food. It has been harder than he ever imagined.”
