A new weekly cooking column announced for the New York Times:
...dedicated to the small — even tiny — urban kitchens everywhere, and the cooks who inhabit them. As well as the daily quandary: what’s for dinner?Well that certainly applies to my kitchen... and I also often want to know what's for dinner... so, hey, perfect fit. The column is written by David Tanis of Chez Panisse, who I know nothing about, but am certainly willing to give a shot... the inaugural column (on beans) is here. Can't say I really agree with his dismissal of canned beans, though if I was making a bean salad I'd probably make the beans myself too... but I see no reason to dismiss them in general.
