The Art of Detective Show

The Art Detectives is a British series that began in 2017.  In it, two art historians examine some of the lesser-known pieces in Britain’s largest art collections.  They look for lost masterpieces and examine the history and provenance of each piece from its creation to becoming a part of a collection.  Viewers learn a great deal about art history and restoration.  According to the series, 80% of Britain’s publicly owned art is in storage or archives, and hence, not available to the public.  This show gives hidden-away treasures well-deserved exposure.  It is available on Acorn TV.



In November a new edition of the classic cookbook, The Joy of Cooking will be released.  The new edition will include hundreds of new recipes, many of them international food, and a new section about fermentation. The publisher, Scribner, has not issued a new edition since 2006. The original publishing date was 1931.  Since then the cookbook has been reissued to keep up with current trends in food and cooking.  It was a staple in my mother’s kitchen as well as mine.  I don’t cook from it often anymore, but it is useful as a research tool. To pre-order hardcover, $26.43.
