 h1. Dear readers,
 After many years of intending to do so, I'm finally reading Crescent, the novel  by [/articles/theculinateinterview/dianaabu-jaber?utmsource=NL20100210&utmmedium=email&utmcontent=Abu-Jaber&utmcampaign=Valentines2010 "Diana Abu-Jaber,"] in which the main character is a chef. An enchanting tale of love and food, Crescent is the perfect thing to read the week before Valentine's Day. 

 Love and food seem so intertwined it's difficult to think of them as distinct from one another. Everyone knows the saying about the way to a man's heart being through his stomach — and most everyone would agree that's one way to a woman's heart as well. 

 On the site this week is Laraine Perri's [/articles/firstperson/romanceandremoulade?utmsource=NL20100210&utmmedium=email&utmcontent=romanceandremoulade&utmcampaign=Valentines2010 story] of how a simple combination of mayonnaise, vinegar, and a few other ingredients creates a  Valentine's menu item that's seductive on many levels.

 And Anu Karwa suggests [/columns/swirl/chocolateandwine?utmsource=NL20100210&utmmedium=email&utmcontent=chocolateandwine&utmcampaign=Valentines2010 "chocolate and wine pairings"] — a match not exactly made in heaven but with a little effort, heavenly.
