the communal table

No real post today, but I recommend checking out Michael Pollan's article in this week's New York Times Magazine, in which he chronicles an epic 36-hour dinner party. Don't worry, the guests weren't held hostage and forced to eat during that entire time. A group of Bay Area chefs and food lovers used a single wood fire to cook an impressive number of delicious-sounding dishes for breakfast, lunch, dinner and a second lunch, all over course of one weekend. Like most of Pollan's work, it's a thoughtful piece on how and why we eat, as well as a completely different take on the traditional dinner party.

Have a great weekend!
