I still read the New York Times. Not every Sunday but some Sundays. And yes, I would still prefer newsprint stains on my fingers, but...well...the electronic version is, not only more convenient, but a helluva lot cheaper. The page with the Times bestseller list is...

“…the audacity to mix the spicy, the acid, the sweet, the salty and the bitter”

When I met Ernesto Narvaez, the executive chef at Zibu Allende, one of the first things he said to me was, “This is not my restaurant. All of that credit goes to Eduardo Palazuelos. It is his concept. It is his menu. It is my job to continue what he created.” Zibu...
