Dear readers,

For this, the last newsletter of 2011, I offer you a dozen great posts from the year — in no particular order. It’s been a pleasure for me to look back; I hope you find something here to delight, inform, or challenge you as well.

1. Deborah Madison always feeds us sublime ideas, but I found her suggestions on yeasted oat pancakes to be particularly inspiring.
2. Because growing tomatoes in cool climates is tricky (well, at least it’s tricky for me), Caroline Lewis’s post on that topic was a welcome thing, indeed.
3. Jonathan Bloom, the food waste expert, had eight valuable suggestions for minimizing food waste.
4. Joan Menefee gave us all a gift when she reminded us of the importance of an active kitchen.
5. Cassandra Funsten’s post about buying fish in Sicily goes on this list because it fed my wanderlust and made me want to meet her fishmonger.
6. When I first read Ellen Kanner’s piece on brisket and bereavement, honestly, I had a shiver of familiarity. It was so right.
7. We had a dozen great interviews with authors, academics, chefs, and others, but the one with Dickson Despommier discusses in detail a provocative idea that most of us know little about: vertical farming.
8. I’ll admit to a nostalgic fondness for toffee bars, and when Shoshanna Cohen called them “the great social equalizer,” I knew just what she meant.
9. I’ll forever be grateful to Kelly Myers for helping us master the art of preserving summer’s harvest in oil and vinegar.
10. I loved Carrie Floyd’s ode to her favorite cocktail (maybe because it also happens to be mine).
11. Many of us seek out organically or locally grown foods, but Trista Cornelius reminded us that fairly harvested food is something we don’t think about often enough.
12. Adam Ried’s summertime paean (with recipes!) to homemade sodas and floats quenched our thirst in August.

Finally, I’d like to give a shout-out to three “bodies of work:” Kim O’Donnel’s Table Talk chats always got people thinking (and cooking); Jacob Grier’s cocktail posts are similarly inspiring when a libation is desired; and Harriet Fasenfest’s householding posts give us all new (and old) ways to think about our independence (and interdependence, too).

Cheers, everyone!
