One Tough Cookie | Weekend Reading

Happy Friday!

I was looking through some old resolutions I’d made (as a highschooler, in fact), and thinking about the things that change and the things that remain the same, sometimes shockingly so! The past year turned out to be much harder than I’d expected, with plenty of upheaval. Lucky for me, I’ve got an aunt who writes me emails with nuggets of wisdom from Ben Franklin: “When you’re finished changing, you’re finished.”

Some thoughts from this time last year on puff pastry tarts and resolving to do less.

I loved reading this NY Times feature on the history of grain growth and production in the US, and the dedication of Stephen Jones at the Bread Lab to make regional grain a viable alternative to mass-produced wheat.

A question being asked by not only aspiring chefs, but also food stylists, recipe developers, and just about anyone who wants to work in any facet of the food industry: Should you go to culinary school? by Lucky Peach.

Eater published a feature on badass businesswoman and aged-ham-whisperer Nancy Newsom Mahaffey, and it’s excellent.

Malty? Hoppy? Pilsner? Saison? Food52 solving my ongoing social posturing dilemma: how to talk about about beer like you know what you’re talking about.
