My week - All about Ruth Reichl

31 January 2015

This week I've been a little Ruth Reichl obsessed. 

I started reading her novel Delicious! on Kristie's recommendation, listened to this excellent interview with the former New York Times food critic, which in turn led me to her honest article about watching her weight during her years on the job.

I happen to be reading Delicious! on my phone and iPad, using the Borrow Box app, which lets me borrow e-books from my local library for free. I'm stoked! Hopefully your library has it too.

On Australia Day, Tony made chocolate fondant and honey gelato with hidden chunks of homemade nougat. I may have insisted that we get stuck into it before it was properly set.

Flicking through Instagram this week, I loved this Valentine's Day cookie from a cute Melbourne bakery. 

I follow NPR's Asia correspondent Frank Langfitt on Facebook and he shared this eye-opening look at life underground in Beijing, where aspiring actors, families and migrants find affordable accommodation in cramped rooms with no natural light.

My colleague Alex in Western Australia published this kind advice from author David Sedaris just the other day. I can't believe she got to talk to him. 

And just in time for Sunday, how to make Sophie Dahl's strawberry ricotta pancakes.
