Wow, was I blown away when I opened my New York Times this morning and read Florence Fabricant's piece on the Serious Eats book. How gratifying is that? Well, it's somehow fitting that the reporter who first wrote about me and told the world about New York Eats nearly twenty years ago would write something so lovely about the Serious Eats book. Many thanks. We are indeed humbled by her kind words:
It's hard to know which is more astonishing, the amount of food stuffed into the 368 pages of "Serious Eats" by Ed Levine and the editors of Serious Eats (Clarkson Potter, $27.99 paperback), or its comprehensive coverage... I plan to tear out the essential seven-page directory of places listed in the book, and make several photocopies, to keep in the car and with my travel stuff.
