O papel da critica em gastronomia É curioso o papel da crítica gastronômica. O que esperamos dela? Sabemos o que esperar da crítica literária, da crítica musical, mas será que sabemos o que esperar da crítica gastronômica?As críticas literária e musical, assim como de artes plásticas, possuem suas próprias teorias, de sorte que também podemos julgar o crítico em função das referências teóricas e conceituais que o movem. Reviews - The Recipe Club Praise for The Recipe Club: A Tale of Food and Friendship “Food and love without the schmaltz and warm fuzzies is what kept me turning the pages of this book. Yes, there are recipes, nostalgic and good ones, but the fascination is in how they mark the years of a childhood friendship struggling to become a life long one. If you’re lucky enough to have that one true best friend, you’ll find all the love, prickliness, laughter, blood curdling honesty, and joy here.”—Lynne Rossetto Kasper, Host of “The Splendid Table®,” public radio’s food show from American Public Media “I’ve been to many combat zones, so I know a real fight when I see one—and the characters in this book pull no punches. “I found elements of every one of my own friendships in the 40-year relationship between Lilly and Val, the heroines of this delicious and delightful novel. Reader Reviews “The Recipe Club is a great book for all women. “What an amazing book! “It’s about food.

FoodReference.com - Everything about Food from Articles & Trivia to Festivals & Recipes The Cookbook Critic: About the Critic Archives I'm Colleen Flippo, a 1999 graduate of the California Culinary Academy in San Francisco and a former test-kitchen cook. I love cookbooks. I love the glossy photos of the pretty food, the myriad ideas of all the different meals I could make, the vast potential of deliciousness that each book represents. What I don't love, a lot of the time, is trying to actually cook from cookbooks. The worst offenders are "celebrity" cookbooks. It's my suspicion that most celebrity cookbooks undergo very little testing before they're rushed into publication. I'm a cooking school graduate, but I'm not super-speedy in the kitchen, so my time estimates will be pretty realistic. I'll also be posting other odds and ends: my ideas for quick dinners, various favorite recipes I've used over the years, random magazine recipes that pique my interest, and so on. If you have comments or suggestions, please let me know: Colleen@thecookbookcritic.com. Off to the kitchen!
