I’m getting ready to host our annual neighborhood Christmas party tomorrow night, and I’ve got visions of cheese and dessert trays dancing in my head today. Those are the foods that I provide for the party, and our friends and neighbors each bring something to share. Before I head off to the cheese shop (I hope to be able to choose several local cheeses for the tray this year), I want to leave you with a little light reading (as opposed to last Friday’s food and politics reading).
- In England, Jamie Oliver’s 30-Minute Meals is the fastest ever non-fiction selling book ever. It’s already sold 735,000 and has been at the top of the best seller list since the first week it was available.
- Eat.Drink.Better has a few ideas for vintage finds for foodies that can be given as holiday gifts.
- The new Weight Watchers program has made a change for the better by encouraging real foods.
- If you missed it, I wrote a piece on six different Christmas cookies to add to your cookie tray this season. My mother-in-law makes something almost exactly like the crème de menthe bars mentioned in this post, and they are out of this world.
- The New York Times lists its best cookbooks of 2010.
And another list for 2010’s food trends that are so over.
