Time for the annual New Yorker food issue! First up, a meaty 8,300 word profile of New York chef April Bloomfield featuring a picture of her head on a platter (two's a trend!); there is also a Calvin Trillin piece on Mosca's, a family run Italian restaurant in Louisiana, and a profile of Sandor Katz, a "fermentation fetishist."
Jane Kramer explores the world of root vegetables, Chang-rae Lee recalls Thanksgiving from his Korean mother's kitchen, and Laura Shapiro ponders home economics, White House cuisine, and Eleanor and Franklin Rooselvelt's marriage. Go on, you've got some reading to do.
