Coming Soon…


Another month, another look ahead to what’s coming on the blog. Game of Thrones comes to an end this month and so too will my reviews of Diageo’s Game of Thrones malts. I’ve already reviewed three of them (Lannister, Stark and Greyjoy) and will have reviews of two more after each of the next two episodes and then the final three to close out the series after the show’s finale on May 18. I’ll have other whisky reviews too, of course, and probably another couple of brandy reviews—and you can, as usual, nominate to the short list things you’re particularly interested in from the long list below. On the food front I will finally close out my Delhi and Los Angeles restaurant reports from late December and early January, sprinkling a few Twin Cities reports among those. And I will finally post the third installment in my series of posts reviewing the coverage of Indian food writing in the American media. The topic: the seemingly renewed currency of family-based narratives in talking about Indian food. I’ll also be reviewing Priya Krishna’s new cookbook, Indian (-ish), which has been getting a lot of coverage recently. And I may once again post a recipe or two of my own.
