Food Fights with Food52



If you’re trapped inside with a significant other, by now you’ve wrangled over everything from dish duty to the way in which he insists on putting hot sauce on everything but cereal. If you’re single, you’re probably diving for the last remaining frozen pizza in the grocery store, and giving the stink eye to careless teens who come within six feet of you in the freezer aisle. You’re not alone. These stories, curated with the online food and cooking community Food52 and introduced by Robert Sean Leonard, deal with just these sorts of culinary combat. In J. Robert Lennon’s “Breadman,” artisanal bread threatens a marriage. Kyle MacLachlan is the incredulous spouse. And Joan Allen performs an excerpt from Nora Ephron’s novel Heartburn, a slice of infidelity in which there are consequences—and pie.
