Small Batch Cooking

 

Suzanne Cope is a Brooklyn-based author and food studies scholar whose recent book, Small Batch: Pickles, Cheese, Chocolate, Spirits and the Return of Artisanal Food, gives a history of artisanal food in the United States and looks at the issues surrounding craft food production through conversations with over 50 food entrepreneurs. She talked to us about the inspiration for the book and the future of artisanal food, and gave us a recipe for Mediterranean greens that incorporates one of her favorite small batch foods.

 

(Join Suzanne for a conversation and tasting with local food artisans at the 92nd Street Y in NYC on Wednesday, June 3.)

The Bookshelf: Marion Cunningham’s Empty Plate Mac & Cheese

macandcheese_427x318 Recently inducted into our Who’s Who of Food and Beverage in America, Clark Wolf learned many things from his friend James Beard, but perhaps the best lesson was this: “Food is the most important thing.” We couldn’t agree more. Wolf's new book American Cheeses: The Best Regional, Artisan, and Farmhouse Cheeses, Who Makes Them, and Where to Find Them includes information about how cheese is made, how to store it, and how to serve it. He also traveled all over the country meeting cheesemakers and tasting an absurd amount of cheese. Rough life! At Wednesday’s Beard on Books, where Wolf dished about American cheese, he left us with these final words of advice, "Live a life worth living, with lots of cheese." A sentiment Beard surely would have
