 h1. Dear readers,

 Even though I've never been quite satisfied with my own attempts at stir-fries, I do love eating them. I was delighted, therefore, to read about stir-fry do's and don'ts in Matthew Amster-Burton's column this week, [/columns/bacon/howtostir-fry?utmsource=NL20090121&utmmedium=email&utmcontent=Wok%2BThis%2BWay&utmcampaign=Asian-Bittman '"Wok this way: How to stir-fry."'] 

 For my next stir-fry, I'll heed Barry Foy's warning and no longer "produce mushy heaps of bland, discolored slop." (Don't know Barry Foy? [/articles/ourtable/barryfoy?utmsource=NL20090121&utmmedium=email&utmcontent=Barry%2BFoy&utmcampaign=Asian-Bittman "Let us introduce you."])

 Also on the site this week is our [/articles/ourtable/markbittmanfoodmattersportland?utmsource=NL20090121&utmmedium=email&utmcontent=Bittman%2BPortland&utmcampaign=Asian-Bittman account] of Mark Bittman's recent visit to Portland, plus a recent post by our newest Dinner Guest blogger, [/mix/dinnerguest/spicegirl?utmsource=NL20090121&utmmedium=email&utmcontent=Spice%2BGirl&utmcampaign=Asian-Bittman "Susmita Sharma"], a Seattle cook who likes adapting the dishes of her native India using Pacific Northwest ingredients.
