My Usual Table by Colman Andrews

myusualtableHere at The Secret Ingredient blog, we love learning about the history of iconic restaurants and ever-changing food trends. Dovetailing perfectly with our insatiable thirst for such knowledge is a new book from our friends at Ecco; My Usual Table, by Colman Andrews. Described as a “vivid memoir of a life lived in food”, this book encompasses Andrews’ experiences watching notable moments in food history such as the beginnings of fusion cuisine and the molecular gastronomy movement.

Andrews, a James Beard Award-winning writer and a well-respected figure in the food industry, captures the essence of restaurants such as Chez Panisse, Trader Vic’s and Spago that he claims have shaped the way we eat, cook, and think about food. It also contains snapshots of diners eating at the various restaurants, offering amazing perspective into Andrews’ writing. My Usual Table has received acclaim from The Wall Street Journal to the Los Angeles Times and we can’t think of a better book for some food inspiration and fun.

  1. Although you’re taking a risk, you can attempt this
    on your own. Outside cleaners have to do a good job, or they don’t get invited back.
    Of course, the traditional winter recipes work well too and the advantage for me
    of having a large slow cooker for our small family is that I can double the quantities and make two meals, one of which I can freeze for another day.

    First of all I want to say excellent blog!
    I had a quick question in which I’d like to ask if you don’t mind.

    I was curious to know how you center yourself and clear your thoughts before
    writing. I have had difficulty clearing my thoughts in getting my thoughts out there.
    I do enjoy writing however it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are generally lost just trying to figure
    out how to begin. Any suggestions or tips? Thanks!
