A couple of weeks ago my husband and I went to a dinner for Frances Mayes, author of Under the Tuscan Sun. She has just written a new book entitled Every Day in Tuscany, and like her previous work it details her life in Italy. Ms.

Alice Waters, the American doyenne of the green food movement just written this beautiful new book entitled The Green Kitchen. She and a whole host of chefs have a few ideas about how you can eat really well and become a good cook
One of the things I love about spring is the anticipation of tender greens at the farmers' market. Although we've had very unseasonably warm weather here in Toronto off and on for the past month, it's still a bit early for
The Oil Drum post some interesting data on the energy input required to produce different kinds of foods; I threw them into bar chart form and it sure looks like Graham Hill should be pitching the idea of a Weekday Vegan rather than a Weekday
This is a recipe that is going to become part my repertoire. If you are looking for a great side dish for Thanksgiving, or maybe an antidote to turkey for the Friday after this is a good choice. It is also a good
We have recently been enjoying cooking from :Fresh Food Fast by Peter Berley so we are going to offer up another recipe from that book this week. This is the perfect recipe for this TreeHugger. Start cooking at 11:30 am while listening to our
