Fortune 500 Daily & Breaking Business News - FORTUNE on CNNMoney What is a magazine app? Fortune brings a new perspective to the iPad. INFORMATION CLEARING HOUSE.

My delight is akin to that of a beginner poet who has just discovered William Carlos Williams, or to an amateur rock musician who has just discovered Buddy Holly. This morning I went to see Efrem at Chinese Medicine Works and when he asked me if I had "anything new" to report, I mentioned this book to him. He knew who Henry Bieler was, of course, and asked me if I'd tried his famous "Bieler Broth." 1 pound string beans, ends snipped 6 medium zucchini (green), ends cut off
