We have been lucky to discover several previously lost diaries of French philosopher Jean-Paul Sartre stuck in between the cushions of our office sofa. These diaries reveal a young Sartre obsessed not with the void, but with food. Apparently Sartre, before discovering philosophy, had hoped to write “a cookbook that will put to rest all notions of flavor forever.”
“You will worship dEUS”
Although I’m not the die-hard dEUS fans I used to be, I still keep track of all things gODly. So, after his film and his collaboration with CJ Bolland, Tom Barman has decided to produce a new dEUS single,‘iF You Don’t Get What You Want’, which will be availble for download this friday. Am I excited? Is belgian beer, the best alcohol in the world?
Assistant to Food Critic (MediaBistro)
Interviews have begun for the incredibly sought-after job of assistant to the food editor of Vogue magazine, Jeffrey Steingarten.
Jeffrey is also author of the best-selling The Man Who Ate Everything and It Must’ve Been Something I Ate, both pubished by Knopf) and was co-host of the cable TV show NY Eats.
Jeffrey’s current assistant, Elizabeth, has successfully completed her two-year term, and he is looking for someone to take her place. The ideal candidate is equally effective at library research, shopping and cooking, repairing Xerox machines, speaking foreign languages, mise-en-place, writing clearly, doing errands, eating in fabulous restaurants, and even travel. The ideal candidate is a complete omnivore, or at least eager to become one.
The ideal candidate does not, of course, exist. But Jeffrey is looking for someone who comes close and is at the beginning of her or his professional career. Jeffrey’s assistant is paid by the hour as a Vogue freelancer, receiving, as he once did, no benefits whatsoever, but some expenses.
Too Tough To Cook
I have discovered the MOST DIFFICULT PROBLEM EVAH: where will Thom and I have our post-marriage dinner pah-ty?!? The problem isn’t seating a gazillion guests – we’ve decided to only invite family and a few very close friends – but the fact every guest has his/her own specific taste which doesn’t match the other’s palate. My parents basically only like Japanese cuisine. Thom’s parents like *traditional Belgian food*. Thom and I would love to have Indian food but the rest of the family and friends don’t want to run for the loo after a soopah spicy curry. WHAT TO DO!!!!????!!!
