The Best American Cookbook of the Last 25 Years
This week's New York Times Book Review is the "Food Issue," devoted entirely to books about food. Yet they have one major oversight: they neglected to elect the Best American Cookbook of the Last 25 Years. What, like people don't buy cookbooks? Cookbooks don't matter anymore? What about Toni Morrison's Beloved Blintzes? Philip Roth's American Pastry? John Updike's Rabbit Angstrom: The Four Cookbooks? DeLillo's White Sauce? Roth's The Kitchen Counterlife? This is an outrage, an absolute outrage.
