Summer’s plenty is finally here, and (if you can pry yourself off of the stone fruits) it’s a great time to pick up some new cooking skills.
Bitten. If you don’t know Mark Bittman, you can just go ahead and become his fan now. Author of the Times’ “Minimalist” food column, he’s become the traditional paper’s semi-vegan spokesperson. (He says he’s generally vegan til dinner, but since he’s a food critic his last meal is fair game). Yesterday’s column was 101 Simple Salads, and he has all sorts of guest contributors writing about their sustainable, fair-trade, free-range lives.
Melo Meals. Eating raw, or vegan, is super expensive and annoying, right? This blog shuts you up by showing amazing creations on a budget of $3.33 a day. Dessert and Dal might be my dream for last meal on Earth. No, wait, Chipotle White Bean Avocado Dip! No, I mean Raw Sushi Collard Rolls! Now if I could only just stop looking at the pictures and actually go make something…
101 Cookbooks. Your new fall-back favorite. Authored by a food lover who realized “when you have 101 cookbooks, it’s time to stop buying cookbooks and start cooking,” it’s an infinite trove of creative, healthy recipes. Helpful wrap-up posts suggest the best dishes for barbecues, holidays, etc. Beautiful photos and easy navigation. The Black Bean Brownies are legendary.
