Got the January Saveur yesterday and as always for January they have their top 100. This year it comes with a theme of Home Cooking. Sadly, I found this also led to far less interesting items on the top 100. Well, there's always next year.
One interesting thing was their ad for a prize giveaway twice a week for a month and a half. Every Tuesday and Thursday, from Jan. 6 to Feb. 27, log on to www.saveur.com/100contest, click on that day's prize, and you'll be entered to win.
The other interesting thing was that John Thorne is #24 on the top 100 list. This was of special interest to me not only because of my long-time fandom of Thorne's writing but because he graciously gave me permission to podcast his newest book, Mouth Wide Open. I am doing occasional episodes with chapters of his book at Forgotten Classics, which you can find here.
