I've Gone Away . . . But Here's Where to Find Me

I'm sorry to inform visitors that I am suspending posts on this blog, but here's the silver lining. My time is increasingly being absorbed by another food-related blog -- the one connected to the book that I co-wrote with my brother. The book is called "What the Great Ate," and it has earned nice reviews from The Daily Beast, The New Yorker, The Washington Post and other media.

Each week, my brother and I post amusing new tidbits about the eating and dining habits of the famous and infamous. Click here to check out the "What the Great Ate" blog.

To learn more about the book or to purchase a copy, click here.

I have also blogged about food and dining trends for The Huffington Post, and I hope to be writing more posts in the months ahead. Click here to check out the posts I've already written.

Divine Dessert

A friend of mine made this dessert for New Year's Eve dinner. It was a recipe for pear clafoutis by Ina Garten, and it was fantastic.

This is a classic French dessert, and it's usually made with cherries. But this version was a tour de force. Try it. You won't be disappointed.
