La folie circulaire  

This review of the new biography of the late French chef Bernard Loiseau (among other books) makes some interesting generalizations about food writing that would seem to apply equally well elsewhere -- to travel writing, perhaps? and surely to certain forms of blogging. Also, I did not know that the French refer to bipolar disorder as la folie circulaire, but then I've never tried to caramelize a cauliflower either. More here on Loiseau from one of his friends, and my previous note of sympathy.
