Man with a Pan

June 21, 2011

Deviating from the normal skate, tattoos and music trifecta for a moment. This is a lovely collection of essays by and about “men who cook”. This isn’t as weird as it sounds as it explores the food culture we inherit from our parents (and their parents), and how that affects both what we eat and how we eat as adults. Plus a lot of good recipes and classic cook book references. It also explores men with pans.

Bicycle Diaries

November 23, 2010

When in Rome and all that. I have been doing a bit of bicycle riding in China, so this book has been fun to read. A fan of earlier Talking Heads, I think David Byrne is an awesome thinker. His series of diary posts come from around the world on various tours, with each city explored by bike. Along the way he muses about bicycles, urban centers, life and everything in between. Making Sense.

Bedtime reading with the kids just moved up a few notches. Or sideways.
