3 Posts I Almost Wrote This Morning Before Leaving For Work

1. A post about how even though I pretend to love food and eating, I think what I really love is sitting.

2. A post about the back pages of food magazines–which ones are the best, which ones are the worst. I’m not sure which is the best, but my least favorite is Saveur. It’s a great a magazine, but then I get to that last page and I look at the picture and even though it might be a slightly amusing image, it rarely sustains my interest for more then 4 seconds. I think it’s time for something new.

3. A post about memorable food scenes from recent movies, especially the dinner scene in “4 Months, 3 Weeks and 2 Days”–one of the tensest dinner scenes ever filmed.

  1. I totally agree with you on Saveur’s back page, which is always such a letdown because it’s definitely my favorite food magazine. The latest butter issue? Heaven!

  2. I’m still utterly amazed that you’ve managed to make a living by sitting on your ass and eating.

    Seriously, where do I sign up for THAT job??!!??

  3. I loved the film and the scene, too, though I wouldn’t exactly describe it as “enjoyable”. That scene should be should shown in film schools as a lesson in subtext. Amazing.

  4. Saveur’s my favorite food magazine, too, and reading this, I realized I don’t remember what the back page was this month – which means it wasn’t particularly memorable! Laura, I loved this butter issue, too; very delectable.

  5. i have never posted on ANY blog before, but felt compelled to because saveur’s back page sucks….and the mag is beautiful! anyone know any contacts there???

  6. I’d love to just see a round-up of top foodie movies…I’ve never even noticed the back page of Saveur, and I’m a subscriber, if that says anything…sitting, not to be dismissed, but where you sit and what you do while sitting? Also a huge factor!

    I whole heartedly agree with your assesment of Saveur’s last page. I think they should take a “Moment” and rethink this inclusion. This page is such a let down and doesn’t seem to fit in whatsoever. This magazine is one of my favorites, but the last page should be re-engineered.
