Recommended Reading: "Pork Life" by Todd Kliman

A few weeks ago, the James Beard Foundation awarded my pal and one-time Washingtonian colleague Todd Kliman the M.F.K. Fisher award for distinguished writing—pretty much the biggest honor a food writer can receive, awards-wise. Man, it's so deserved. Check out his amazing feature, "Pork Life," in Lucky Peach.

Can't wait to see what Todd gets up to next.
