Does this ever happen to you? A food-porn image leaps off the pages of a magazine and imbeds itself into your cortex. Before you know it, you’re scrupulously following the recipe’s every word. Yet despite your best efforts, the finished product isn’t a twin of the one that appeared in the magazine. It’s more like a second cousin, from the ugly side of the family. My latest tragic disconnect between newsstand fantasy and kitchen reality originated with a recent issue of Saveur. To celebrate the magazine’s 150th issue, Team Saveur gathered 150 classic recipes, squeezing 101 into print, and diverting the balance to the magazine’s website and digital edition. It’s a keeper, and even a cursory spin through its pages reveals an eclectic, never-ending parade of I-wanna-make-that dishes.
