Homer for Young Readers: The Provensens’ Vibrant Vintage Illustrations for the Iliad & Odyssey by Maria Popova Ancient Greek mythology meets mid-century art. Few artists have done more to enchant generations of children with storytelling than wife-and-husband duo Alice and Martin Provensen, whose vibrant mid-century illustrations span everything from classic fairy tales to an homage to William Blake. (Their 1944 gem The Animal Fair was featured in my recent collaboration with The New York Public Library as one of 10 favorite books about animals.) Born on August 14, 1917, Alice plowed through the era’s tragic bias against female artists; she survived Martin, who died in 1987, by more than two decades and continues to draw well into her nineties. The Iliad and the Odyssey is delightful in its entirety and could have easily inspired The Ancient Book of Myth and War, that lovely side project by four Pixar animators.

My Fundraising Page Let me introduce you to my Dad, Gary Eisenberg- I can't count the amount of times my Dad has looked at me wide eyed and said "I can't wait for tomorrow!" and confused I always ask him why as he smirks back, "because I just get better looking every day!" I can remember running my first hill run with my Doodad. Now (years later of course I got over it) and running is our thing- Me and Doodad pushing each other and running. This March my Dad was diagnosed with Acute Myeloid Leukemia. So this year I have decided to run The Columbus Marathon in October for my Doodad and to help find cures and more effective treatments for blood cancers with The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society's (LLS) Team in Training. For those of you out there who are able, I'd love your help in donating.

Purim Poppy Seed Cake with Lemon Glaze | The Shiksa Blog Note from Tori: This recipe has been retested and updated with new photos for 2014! I improved the recipe by cutting the butter in half and adding vegetable oil to make the cake more tender and moist. I also used full fat dairy and added a bit more lemon juice. It was always tasty, but it’s so much better now. Enjoy! This lemony sour cream poppy seed bundt cake is delicious year-round, but it’s particularly appropriate during the Jewish holiday of Purim. Queen Esther was Jewish, King Ahasuerus was not. There are three different ways to top this beauty, with powdered sugar, a lemon icing or a warm lemon glaze. By the way, a friendly heads up: if you are about to take a new job that requires a drug test, skip this cake.

Ulysse : le premier homme (1) Qu’importe le temps ! 3 000 ans après l’« Odyssée » d’Homère, le mythe d’Ulysse continue d’incarner le modèle de la condition humaine. Et l’épopée de son fabuleux périple reste une source inépuisable d’inspiration. L’« Iliade » et l’« Odyssée » sont les premiers textes de notre civilisation gréco-romaine. Qui est Ulysse ? Ulysse, « l’homme aux mille tours », est un humain rusé. Mais c’est un homme avant tout qui n’hésite pas à mentir, donne de fausses identités si nécessaire, se montre insolent, orgueilleux, vaniteux même, quand il révèle son nom au Cyclope après l’avoir aveuglé, ce qui provoque la terrible colère de son père, Poséidon, maître absolu des mers. Il refuse pourtant ce cadeau divin, fidèle à sa femme Pénélope qu’il veut retrouver, à son fils Télémaque, à son île Ithaque. Entre les hommes et les dieux « J’ai navigué avec Homère » Jean Cuisenier*, ethnologue, helléniste et navigateur, a consacré sa vie et deux expéditions en Méditerranée à retracer le voyage d’Ulysse.

Paris en 2000 images A l’origine de cette création, un étudiant américain : Luke Shepard. Son idée ? Effectuer 2000 clichés de Paris, pour au final les mettre bout à bout et ainsi créer une vidéo time-lapse en stop-motion. Le résultat est hypnotisant, la bande son y étant très certainement pour quelque chose, puisque Shepard a choisi le titre “Intro” de la formation anglaise The xx. Au programme, les plus grands monuments de Paris, du Sacré-Cœur à la Pyramide du Louvre en passant par Notre-Dame de Paris, le tout à la fois de jour et de nuit. Un très beau travail, intitulé “Le Flâneur”, à visionner ci-dessous :

101 Best Restaurants in America for 2012 It becomes more difficult every year to rank America’s best restaurants. We say that having done it for nearly a half-decade. As interest in dining out increases, and more great chefs train younger good ones, fantastic food continues to spread out across the country. View Slides: 101 Best Restaurants in America for 2014 We have always believed that good food is good food, and so our previous 101s have compared iconic pizza parlors and joints serving transcendent cheeseburgers with the lapidary perfection of a French Laundry or the genre-bending inventiveness of a Next. We formed our first 101 list in 2011 by asking: Where did we, The Daily Meal’s editors, like to eat?
