The "Bullish" Amanda Hesser On the NY Times Cookbook, Alice Waters and More

Amanda Hesser, formerly known as Ms. Latte, will now forever be known as the author of the astoundingly comprehensive, 932 page, no-pretty-pictures Essential New York Times Cookbook (W.W. Norton & Co.) which just landed with an enormous thud on my desk. The phenomenal book includes over 1000 recipes, trend charts and dishes through the ages—all which Hesser tested over the six years it took her to complete the book. I already have pages earmarked for future dinners.
