Obsessive Compulsive Synergy Disorder?

Like so many, I am still mourning the loss of Gourmet. A twinge of sadness came over me opening the November issue with that big succulent turkey on the cover. A day after Gourmet arrived, Saveur landed. I opened the plastic wrapping with glee to find the oddest sticker slapped on the front: Saveur.com/Yahoo. Really, Yahoo? The same portal that offers updates on the balloon boy and Lindsay Lohan will house recipes for confit de canard? What’s up with that?

Suite 2046 in the House

suite 2046

Our pals Kiwa Iyobe and Susan Choi at Suite 2046 have been doing a FABULOUS job of putting together next week’s Tweet N Eat contest for the release of This Is Why You’re Fat. So far we have six trucks on board, including The Treats Truck, Wafels & Dinges, the Cravings Truck, Cupcake Stop, the Bistro Truck, and Van Leeuwen Artisan Ice Cream. The locations of each truck will be tweeted out by @tiwyf on Twitter starting at 11 am on October 29, so make sure to follow them to get in on the action. The first five people to order the TIWYF special at each truck will receive a free book, and the first one to hit up all six trucks and tweet pics will win a private food truck party for 25 friends! (Grub Street, NBC New York, Midtown Lunch, and Crain’s New York, among others.) Make sure you spread the word and wear loose clothing on October 29th. SEE YOU ON THE STREET!

Mollie Katzen + Kashi = delicious food for beginners of all ages!!!

Get Cooking by Mollie KatzenIf you love Mollie Katzen (and what fan of the mushroom barley soup from The Moosewood Cookbook doesn’t?) you’ll want to check out Mollie’s new cookbook, GET COOKING: 150 SIMPLE RECIPES TO GET YOU STARTED IN THE KITCHEN, which we’re publishing next Tuesday (October 13, in honor of Mollie’s birthday). It’s Mollie’s first cookbook ever specifically designed for beginners…and her first ever to include all the food groups. The idea is to welcome everyone into the kitchen, whether you are vegetarian or vegan or carnivorous, and whether you think you can cook or not. In fact, if you think you can’t cook, this is the perfect book to wean you from takeout and get you on your way to making easy, fresh, inexpensive meals for yourself and your friends.

And if you love Kashi, the natural foods company (and what fan of their Cinnamon Harvest cereal doesn’t?), you’ll be excited to hear that Kashi will be promoting GET COOKING on the backs of 8 of their most popular cereal boxes this Fall!!! Kashi has also partnered with Mollie to create a fantastic new video-based website called Get-Cooking.com, which launches today. Check it out for terrific instructional videos that will have you making everything from polenta to pilaf in no-time.

Welcome to Deep Fried America

Jonesin’ for a chili-cheese smothered Tubby Dog or a peanut butter glazed Elvis donut topped off with banana slices and bacon? Jones no more. This Is Why You’re Fat, the book, hits stores in just a few weeks and while it may not fully satisfy your growling stomach, it will at least tantalize your hungry eyes! Look out for the local faves listed below in a neighborhood near you. A deep fried Mars bar may be only a stone’s throw away.

I <3 Groupable

groupableOne of my favorite new sites is Groupable. I found out about them on Mashable. Basically, they put together sponsors with groups. From where I sit, I can think of about 10,000 ideas for both sides of that equation. Lucky for me, Groupable’s fabulous Gerrit Hall is just a phone call (or AIM) away and responds to all of my ideas with enthusiasm and follow up (if only the whole world could be like that…).
