Cooking Vicariously Through the Wednesday Chef
Most weeks, I cook at least three times at home, quite a bit compared to most New Yorkers I know. But recently there have been lots of restaurant openings and events to attend, leaving less time for me at the stove. I’ve been so out of touch with my kitchen lately that I find myself living vicariously through food bloggers. My favorite of the moment is The Wednesday Chef, by a New York writer who chronicles her attempts at cooking recipes clipped over the years from The New York Times and the LA Times. I admire how regularly and ambitiously she cooks and posts, usually with plenty of yummy pictures. Reading it is almost enough to get me through until the weekend, when I might be able to cook again.
