Your Take: Dining—In Or Out?

July-August 2011


In "Restaurants Rampant," from the July-August 2011 issue, Craig Lambert explores two trends in the food world. First, eating in a restaurant is no longer just a meal; it's an experience, in the hands of chefs like Ferran Adrià. But on the other side is a backlash in favor of eating—and cooking—at home; this movement's leaders include Moosewood Cookbook author and Harvard University Dining Services consultant Mollie Katzen.

Read the article, then tell us your opinion:

Have restaurants become too theatrical, too “precious?” Are you and your family losing something important by dining out too often? If so, what? Is home cooking becoming a lost art in your household? If it is, how might it be saved?
