Read Up On It – June 15th, 2012
This week is about cocktails, food writing advice and most importantly – is Gordon Ramsay having a bad day?
- Le Bernardin is renown for its dedication when it comes to fish. So GQ asks them to show us how to fillet a fish.
- The Globe And Mail looks into the practice of tipping out, and how some employers are taking advantage of it.
- If you have to tip out so much, maybe you should read this Atlantic article about how you can still eat food after it has “expired”.
- Is Filipino food the next big thing? Somebody please say yes. Eater seems to think so.
- A journalist from The Guardian interviews Gordon Ramsay. The opening paragraph:
Gordon Ramsay and I eyeball one another, turn away, and stare into space. In the long, sour silence that follows, I hear my nails drum the notepad on my knee. “Well,” I say, “maybe we should call it a day.”
“I’m going to shoot, then,” huffs Ramsay. “I didn’t expect it to end like that.”
“Well, neither did I.”
And without another word, we both walk out.
- Micheal Ruhlman doles out some sound advice on food writing.
- And The New York Times dedicated a decent amount of space to cocktails this week. First there was a neat little piece about the popularity of Pimm’s and it’s delectable quaff, the Pimm’s Cup. Then on to bitters and underused liqueurs. But the best was a summer drink generator. Just press “Randomize” and see what pops up. This is going to be an expensive and hangover laden summer. Pass the ibuprofen please.
