There hasn't been much time for reading lately. My Sunday papers are piled up by the bedside some dating back to February. We've been working a lot.
We did get to steal some quiet time on Labor Day and rather than catch up on old news, we cracked open some new books both of which were relevant to our daily lives and inspiring to our future. These are the types of text books that should be required reading of culinary students for they each define the essential rules of conduct necessary to excel in the cooking world which is basically to keep your mouth shut and your hands moving and never call in sick or complain about the grueling hours unless you've been shot and are immobile and even then your work ethic will be held in question.
If you happen to find some time to sneak in some pages and have an interest in kitchen culture, Matt and I highly recommend these pages that have been holding our attention and validating our lifestyle of, well, having stacks and stacks of yellowing NY Times waiting to be read in the bedroom, the bathroom, the living room and my car. I'll get to them one of these days.
