Small batch chocolate cookbooks and podcasts questioning the choice to award Monsanto with the World Food Prize — yep, must be what the Edible staff is reading, watching and listening to this week.
Apricots and peaches have yielded the stage to apples and pears, but I’m going to be eating Macs, Winesaps and Bosc til rhubarb season so I postpone the inevitable with the year’s final stone fruit: plums.
Potluck Video brings us two recipes from Manhattan’s Bell Book & Candle, which happens to have an entire herb garden on their rooftop. For advice from chef John Mooney, as well as a DIY demo, check out the video.
Jane Coxwell is private chef to designer Diane von Furstenberg and media mogul Barry Diller, who happen to spend half the year sailing around the world on an extravagant yacht the Eos. Here’s one recipe from her book that we can’t wait to make in the comforts of our own galley kitchen!

Much more than a cookbook, it’s a serious text on buying, cooking and overall understanding pastured meats.
