Update: Listen to the review online here.
Pitch alert! Oscar's review of Bill Buford's book Heat: An Amateur's Adventures as Kitchen Slave, Line Cook, Pasta-Maker, and Apprentice to a Dante-Quoting Butcher in Tuscany should run on All Things Considered, on NPR radio. In the SF Bay Area, you can hear it on KQED 88.5 f.m. between 4:30 and 6:30 p.m. Buford spent time in uber NYC chef Mario Batali's kitchens, with learning trips to Tuscany sprinkled in. It's intense, evocative writing, full of interesting tidbits.
This is Oscar's first review for All Things Considered, and depending on the audience reaction, he may do more. So if you have any thoughts or feelings on the review or just want the producers to know you like Oscar's work, feel free to contact them directly.
