I'm not doing a lot of food reading these days- in print or online. I haven't even checked Eater in weeks, which could either mean I don't have the time right now, or that I just don't have patience for the hype machine at the moment.

Here is my limited (but still recommended) readings for the week:
  • New Yorker's in-depth profile on last week's James Beard Award winner Gary Aschatz. How does one become America's #1 chef if he can't taste anything? Ingenuity and a little bit of imagination. (New Yorker)
  • Japan tackles "obesity" via your midsection- if you are over 40 and fatter than the waistline (33.5" for men, 35.4" for women: GASP!), the government will step in and give you a six-month probationary period to get yourself in check. It's pretty laughable, but it just might work... (via Adam of SE, New York Times)
