The distinguished restaurant critic and columnist has spent his life writing about food. Until fairly recently, I thought chateaubriand came in a bottle. Sokolov began his career as a foreign correspondent at Newsweek in After leaving the Times in the mids, Sokolov worked for almost twenty years at the Wall Street Journal, where he was a founding editor of the daily Leisure and Arts page.
Sokolov and his wife Johanna Hecht, a retired curator of European art at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, live in one such example of American architectural austerity.
Sokolov made me feel welcome in his softly lit living room, where I immediately sank into a comfortable couch. An Appetite for Paris: The primary requisite for writing well about food is a good appetite. Without this, it is impossible to accumulate, within the allotted span, enough experience of eating to have anything worth setting down.
Each day brings only two opportunities for field work, and they are not to be wasted minimizing the intake of cholesterol. Alas, Sokolov and I never got around to discussing Liebling.
He cast his eyes at the ceiling, as a teacher might when confronted with a particularly dim student. Then he made clear that the world of food writing has changed. He recalled talking with a colleague 25 years ago about how he no longer enjoyed the clout of his predecessors at the New York Times like Claiborne.
Even then, they were mourning the fact that a newspaper critic could no longer make or break a restaurant with one review. Sokolov sighed again, passing a hand through his still-thick white hair, as if trying to comb out his exasperation. In a televised world brimming with Iron Chefs and boiling over with far too much Rachael Ray, I was gratified to see that for Raymond Sokolov there were so many tastier things to talk about.
Once he began discussing the fanciful and bizarre histories of American regional specialties, the focus of his Natural History column, Sokolov became more cheerful. Speaking in a deliberate, mellifluous voice made for radio, he recalled the way his search for forgotten or underground specialties—including the perfect hot dog—sent him to parts of the country most national journalists never visit, let alone write about.
It could usually be found parked in an empty lot outside a worn-out string of meatpacking warehouses in Roxbury—but not always. He also described a visit to Toledo, Ohio, where the legendary swamp rabbit waddled into his life. He served up his story of the swamp rabbit, better known among non-Toledoans as muskrat, with great relish.
It seems that during the Depression, the Catholic bishop of Toledo although some say it was the bishop of Detroit declared that on Fridays—a day on which Catholics were forbidden to eat meat—the faithful could eat muskrat.
This giant rat lived part-time in water. The major meats all have these names that are actually French. What is the state of American food—not just food writing—these days? That the quality of food—even in supermarkets—was more diverse and interesting than ever before?
I had to agree. Only thirty minutes away, in Poughkeepsie, a city at least as far off the beaten culinary path as Duluth or Peoria, I had recently discovered a restaurant called Soul Dog. They serve a hot dog to die for, slathered with peanut sauce and slivered cucumbers.
It made me wish Soul Dog kept later hours. I would have enjoyed taking Raymond Sokolov there that evening. And it left me eager to read more of his dispatches from the table, which I now know are as notable for their grace and wit as any essay by the great Liebling.
The Life of A.William Golding s novel, The Inheritors, reaches into prehistoria, advancing the thesis that humankind s evolutionary ancestors, the Fire-Builders, triumphed over a gentler race as much by violence and deceit as by natural superiority.
The Mughal emperor Shah Alam hands a scroll to Robert Clive, the governor of Bengal, which transferred tax collecting rights in Bengal, Bihar and Orissa to the East India Company.
Looks like I get the first post again. Hope no one thinks I’m working some dark magic.
Just a product of having no life I’m afraid. Having read Nathan Robinson’s article previously, I came to the conclusion that it was saying “You can’t argue against white supremacists”.
