The thing about food is that it’s not just fuel for a metabolic process of the human body. It’s a social construct, bringing family or friends together in a way few other experiences can. Can.

And that’s what’s at the heart of the writings of Nigella Lawson, the well-known British-born food writer and TV chef.

In fact, when I met her in 2004, the book she had just published was called Feast.

And a conversation with Nigella Lawson is all “feast” and no “famine.”

So here now, from 2004, Nigella lawson.

Nigella Lawson turned 62 last month. She was last seen on TV in 2020 in the limited series “Nigella’s Cook, Eat, Repeat.”

Anthony Bourdain

Tomorrow, June 25th, would have been Anthony Bourdain’s 64th birthday.

That’s why June 25th has been designated “Bourdain Day” by friends of the late chef, author, TV personality, and world traveler.

Bourdain shot to fame some twenty years ago with his book “Kitchen Confidential,” in which he pulled back the curtain to let us see what really goes on in a restaurant kitchen.

But his book also helped elevate food preparation to an elite profession.

I first met him in the spring of 2001….

Anthony Bourdain died on June 8th, 2018, by suicide, while on location in France for his TV show “Parts Unknown.”
