It was only a matter of time before Serious Eats honcho Ed Levine (a man whose gift for grub is so all-encompassing that he actually tried the hamburger at Katz’s) netted another book deal. Given how lucrative diet books are, we expected him to parlay his “Serious Diet” into print, but thank goodness, we’ve been spared further ruminations on bananas. His next book, announced on Publishers Marketplace today, will be a celebration of all things “tasty.” As it should be. Here’s the blurb.
Founder of the popular website SeriousEats.com Ed Levine's THE SERIOUS EATS GUIDE: How to Eat, Cook, and Live a Seriously Tasty Life, to Emily Takoudes at Clarkson Potter, by Vicky Bijur of the Vicky Bijur Literary Agency (world).
Incidentally, Takoudes, the editor who bought this, has also signed on a cookbook by Alain Coumont, which will showcase “the healthy and organic menus at the author's Le Pain Quotidien restaurants in the U.S. and around the world.”
