Great New Books & Videos FOR FREE at the Fort Worth Public Library

Diary of a foodie. Season oneby Reichl, Ruth, WGBH (Television station : Boston, Mass.), WGBH Video (Firm), Zero Point Zero Production, Inc., Public Broadcasting Service (U.S.)

This disc whets the appetite for world travel and exotic eats. From a glimpse into the slow-food movement to salt and pepper, these 30-minute segments allow just enough time to begin a voyage, sample the topic, and return to Gourmet's kitchen for an "at-home" replication. The episode featuring chef Jose Andres is particularly exciting as he deconstructs a meal and creates amazingly delicious variations inside his kitchen-lab. A show on water takes the audience into the art and science of oyster farming, a fascinating and little-known industry. The most important element of the season is its focus on the local, slow, and organic food movements. Diary is an intelligent program on the most complex and also the simplest items that we put into our mouths. Highly recommended for foodists and ecologically minded chefs. Fans can also download full episodes and recipes at A. Moitra, Providence Copyright 2009 Reed Business Information.
