In the online world, there are an excess of people who love food – the glut of food blogs with recipes, commentary and food criticism are overwhelming. Peter Hertzmann has a zeal for food that goes above and beyond most others. He writes an e-zine called A La Carte dedicated to culinary topics. His fascination for cookery – its preparation, materials, history, politics, and culture – has gone from East to West: first for Chinese cuisine and now French. The massive archives on his site feature recipes, history and a bit of Francophile passion for those who share his love of French cooking.
