I penned a brief history of literary power lunches in NYC for The Paris Review, with cameo appearances by B&H’s whitefish sandwich and Dorothy Parker.
On the travel front, here’s my guide to the Okanagan Valley, British Columbia’s bourgeoning wine region, for New York Magazine.

My on-camera debut: five seconds of awkward background slurping in CHOW’s latest video report, filed from Cafe China. My buddy/ host Pervaiz Shallwani fell hard for the Sichuan restaurant’s braised pork belly, which is one hell of a lot more complex and sophisticated than its name implies. I’ll let him tell you how they make it (spoiler: braising, deep-frying, and steaming are all involved), but be on the lookout for a lady in a grandpa sweater sweating it out over some Sichuan peppercorns on stage left.
Holy cats, this is the most brilliant invention on the planet: Ég gæti borðað heilan hest (Icelandic for “I could eat a horse”) spaghetti measuring tool. (via From Scandinavia With Love )
Spaghetti Bulldog makes an appearance for my birthday. Thanks @samhorine!
