From the LATimes is a refreshing statement of 'new rules' they will follow and urge readers to do as well. Key points: headnotes, weight measurements, salts, ingredients lists, substitutions, and water.
Quote:
The key takeaway from all this: Read every part of a recipe before you cook to ensure the greatest chance of success.

Further to the original post is this free article from The Guardian, again related to satisfying and inspiring 'cooking chat'!!

We've been considering subscribing to the LA Times just for the food section.

We should talk - probably the worst subscription I have with regards to communicating about my subscription. They always try to renew without permission. It may be smoother with you living in USA. I always signup for one of their ridiculously low ‘introductory’ specials.
I last subscribed for some 4 month special and immediately diarized to cancel after 3 months because it usually takes 2-3 weeks to get through to someone. If you don't’, they will renew at full price!!! Then you get the joy of electronic arguing . . .
If you do subscribe, create a folder and save all correspondence.

I subscribed with a special offer once and when I tried to cancel at the end of the trial, they offered me a really good deal if I continued...less than 1/2 of what they were going to charge. It was too good to pass up!

Mr. Fuzzy - You might really enjoy The Guardian.com

Otto has a frequent column and many other veg recipes are featured frequently. It’s free and Terry & I think it is the best news source world-wide. It encourages subscribing but all articles are free. We subscribe because of their attitude towards good journalism.

I already support the Guardian.

WaPo's food section is pretty good too.
