retail news in context, analysis with attitude

The New York Times Magazine over the weekend featured its annual "Food & Drink" issue, which you can read in its entirety here.

There are three stories that are my particular favorites:

• "A Woman's Place Is Running The Kitchen," which is about Boston chef Barbara Lynch, who has a personal and professional goal of nurturing the next generation of chefs, especially women;

• A photo essay that looks inside the refrigerators of five top New York chefs;

• And "Not Enough Cooks In The Kitchen," by Mark Bittman, which looks at the dichotomy between the celebrity chef culture that may not focus enough on great meals.

If you love food, the Times Magazine is worth perusing. Enjoy.
