But until then, there are already several YouTube channels set up to provide you with a chance to go on walking tours around the world, with only the sounds of the environment in your headphones. I was alerted to this by good friend Phil Gyford, who found this via Sarah Pavis (via FaveJet), and provided several ...

The difference between truffles

Truffles are among the most highly sought after mushrooms in the world. They’re far from the most frequently eaten — in fact, much of their popularity stems from seasonality and limited supply — yet truffles are revered by fine-food lovers. There are hundreds of known truffle species. Of these, fewer than 10 are eaten. And of those, there are two that dominate the conversation: black truffles and white truffles. Both types are native to Europe. White truffles (Tuber magnatum) are the more rar...

Weekend Cooking: Cookbooks on My Mother's Shelves

One of the more difficult tasks that children face after their last parent dies is cleaning out their house. My mother was still living in the same four-bedroom, two-story house that we moved to in 1964. Although neither she nor my father was a hoarder, there are still quite a number of personal items that my brothers and I need to look through. Among my mother's things were dozens of cookbooks. Only one of my brothers is a dedicated cook, so the two of us went through the books, picking out th...

Unfathomable as it sounds to pass up the signature activity of the City by the Bay, the Great White Way or Colorado at play, the poshest place al...

Coronavirus Has Europe Treating Chinese People Like the Plague

ROME—The sign taped to the glass door of a popular gelateria in front of Rome’s iconic Trevi Fountain is perfectly clear, and perfectly ugly. Written in both Chinese and English, it states what pretty much everyone in a country of hypochondriacs and the rest of Europe is thinking: “Due to international safety measures, all people coming from China are not allowed to have access to this place.” The writer then apologizes for any inconvenience. WHO Calls Coronavirus ‘Emergency’ as Person-to-Person...

The Alfa Romeo Continuum

Like a bad dream I’m plugged firmly into the seat of my Le Mans blue Alfa Berlina in a parking lot attempting to get home from the death factory that is a defense contractor’s main preoccupation. White, acrid smoke seeps menacingly from the intersection of body and hood. Merda. The early getaway did not happen the way I intended. I get out and pop the hood. When the smoke clears I notice pulsating warts on the steaming throttle cable housing. I know someone inside the building I work in who ...
