Heat: An Amateur's Adventures as Kitchen Slave, Line Cook, Pasta-Maker, and Apprentice to a Dante-Quoting Butcher in Tuscany

An exploration into what goes on in Mario Batali's kitchen.

  • I'm addicted to Anthony Bourdain. I don't know if its his cooking, his show or his book or the mere fact that he loves the Ramones as much as I do?

Brilliant! My DIY eyesore of an enhanced radio arial still only got me pretty poor reception in my apartment (my neighborhood of brick and brownstone is pretty to look at, but not great for radio waves), but with this radio I can listen to crystal clear NPR sans the eyesore! The NPR version of the Livio makes it easy for NPR types to listen to public radio, but you're not limited it - you can tune to any of over 16,000 non-NPR stations worldwide! (-As you might guess by the number of exclamation points, I'm pretty excited about this.) When you buy the NPR version, the nice folks at Livio donate a portion of the proceeds to benefit NPR - warm fuzzies. So anyway, how does it do all this? It's an internet thing :) How did we live survive before the internet?

Yes, as you can probably tell from the cover image and title, this is the baking book that grew out of NPR's All Things Considered. The writing style is no-nonsense, witty, and fun to read on its own, which is to say nothing of cake recipes that outdo themselves -- I'm anxious to try out the "Naughty Senator," a marbled peppermint and chocolate rum cake. It's truly exhaustive, and even leaves cake behind to share marvelous cookie recipes!

  • Super useful, especially when I’m listening to NPR while running lots of errands. If I can’t hear the end of a story, I can listen to it later. It’s like TIVO for public radio!

Now I can stream Public Radio stations (hundreds) from all over the country - Anytime! This app is the result of a collaboration between APM, NPR, PRX, PI and PRI. I"m loving it!!! For those who were confused (see app comments) this app streams Public Radio stations, not commercial ones. I love my NPR!

  • I don't have a radio in my home, I don't live in LA, and I miss listening to So Cal NPR... but I don't have to anymore! Since I downloaded this app, I've been streaming non-stop. Best of all, it's free!

It's a fantastic source for news, and I love going to their website for such sections like "Kitchen Window" and their Music page. Through "Song of the Day," I've managed to find out about a gamut of artists I've listened to and liked. NPR is fantastic in communicating world news on an individual scale, for example, in covering the current food crisis, they focused on a bakery in Connecticut that's encouraging its customers to grow their own wheat to prove to local farmers that wheat can be a good crop to grow in the New England state. They also went on about the rising costs of food by discussing each ingredient in a baguette and why the costs of the particular ingredient are going up. Their "Climate Connections" page is informative not only on a local, American scale, but also in informing us about what other countries are doing to reduce carbon emissions and make things better. All in all, NPR is a wonderful source of information about these strange times we currently live in.

You would usually need to make a pledge to get it. Decorative, useful, and as necessary to keep in your car as your road atlas and insurance information - especially if you haven't managed to clear out that Pop Tart your niece crammed into your CD player - if you are an NPR fan that is.

Or if you're craving more, you can download shows from iTunes. I find that the format is perfect for listening to on the way to work. Each episode is just about an hour long and is composed of three stories which are in some way linked. While the program does suffer for a tad of the preciousness that is NPR, it is distinctly enjoyable and almost always thought provoking.
