Wall Street Journal – In My Kitchen

In honor of the article published this weekend in the awesome Wall Street Journal, where I compare chefs abuse of bacon to showing off cleavage, I tap out this little excerpt from my first book, Urban Pantry from the “Stocking the Pantry” Section.

BACON. I keep a pound of slab bacon in my freezer and cut off little bits at a time for cooking. It’s great in a pot of beans or lentils.

Bacon! An absolute must in the pantry!

Special thanks to writer Charlotte Druckman for coming to my home, sitting at my table and talking up a storm. And, of course, uber-photographer Della Chen. Check out her projects via Eater.
