Grabbing the Gusto

Deirdre Reid – Freelance Writer & Home Cook

Here are some items that tickled my fancy today.

Julia fans, another book! Houghton Mifflin Harcourt announced that it will publish in December “As Always, Julia,” more than 200 letters written from 1952 to 1966 between Julia Child and her agent Avis DeVoto.

A few weekends ago I was lucky enough to spend the day at TEDxRTP – a one-day version of the TED conference organized by some local angels. It was incredibly stimulating. There are more than 400 TEDx events now scheduled across the world for 2010. I highly recommend that you find one near you.

This guy is just ridiculous and I can’t stop watching him. Stevie Riks does impressions of British rock stars.

Many years ago at the Minibar in Washington DC, a really cool dining experience from Jose Andres, my cocktail before dinner was a Margarita that I sprayed into my mouth like Binaca. Now I can get an inhalable espresso. How handy!

And a Twitter follow for you – what do you get when you combine Anthony Bourdain’s snarky attitude with Ruth Reichl’s poetic tweets? It’s Ruth Bourdain.

That’s all for now!
