The Amish Cook from Oasis Newsfeatures

Loooooong, But Interesting, Article...

Good journalism, great article.  You can read it for FREE in the New York Times right now.  Beginning next year sometime, the NYT will begin charging to read articles.  I don't have a problem doing this because I think that good journalism is worth supporting.  But I realize I am probably in the minority in this regard.  Anyway, part of me rolls my eyes at splashy celebrities that very quickly do what it has taken me almost a lifetime to do with The Amish Cook and I am still not there:(  Enter someone like Katie Lee Joel, the 29-year-old ex-wife of rocker Billy Joel.  She was a Miami University student who met Joel while in New York to check out colleges.....Well...I won't recap the article here too much.  This is a six page - but fascinating - article that is in this week's New York Times Sunday Magazine which gives great insight into the culture of food celebrities, branding, licensing, etc.  This is all stuff that I have been trying to do for years with The Amish Cook, but my connections aren't nearly so good as Katie Lee Joel's.  Click here for a very fun, indepth, interesting read.   By the way, does anyone have her book? If so, email me at , I just have a quick question about it!
