This Cookbook Is A Joy To Read

Food

Raymond Sokolov — classics scholar, writer and, as he describes himself, “a man of letters” — has written about theater, art, literature and something everyone cares about: food. 
His book, “The Cook’s Canon, 101 Classic Recipes Everyone Should Know,” opens with apple pie and ends 230 pages later with zabaglione, a foamy sauce of egg yolks, sugar and Marsala that waiters used to beat in a heated copper bowl before admiring diners. (They may still do that, for all I know.)

A Tribute To A Millerton Photographer

Books: ‘Chester Eisenhuth, Photographer’

This book has been a labor of love for Mark Goodman. A love of photography. A love of Millerton. And a love of the works of Chester Eisenhuth.
Goodman began his extensive photography career in 1970, when he studied the medium with Minor White at The Hotchkiss School in Lakeville. A year later, he arrived in Millerton to continue honing his craft at Apeiron’s inaugural photography workshop. His assignment: Walk around Millerton to see what he could see. He spent his time photographing people and ultimately met Eisenhuth, who was the town and village historian.

Sullivan Sets Crime Story In Small-Town Newsroom

Books: ‘Murder Ink 2’

Patrick L. Sullivan has been a reporter at The Lakeville Journal for more than 10 years — “it only feels like forever,” he quipped — and he’s covered it all. Board meetings. School events. Crime stories. And yes, even movie reviews.
So when he was approached to write a fictional piece for a crime anthology, he focused on what he knows best — covering a story as a reporter at a weekly newspaper in a small town with a big lake.

Crafting Stories About Their Lives

Writing

Everyone has a story. At least one, Betty Krasne says, that they want to tell. So she helps people write them. Eleven of her students told their story out loud at the Kent Memorial Library on Dec. 11 — acts of courage, sometimes, of wit, and of gratitude.
Writing Your Life, the class is called. And the idea drew 10 women and one man to Krasne’s latest class on memoir writing. For eight weeks she assigned exercises and prompted members to help each other be clear, honest and engaging.

A Book That Cooks Would Love

Food

I love books about food. Some, like Thomas Keller’s “French Laundry Cookbook,” I read for amusement, because I am never going to make a Verjus sorbet or a lamb stock requiring 10 pounds of lamb bones and a calf’s foot, split. Still, it’s a fascinating read.
