Sounds like fun, but how are you going to control your weight?? This was the dilemma Frank Bruni faced when he was invited to become Food Critic for the New York Times.

Chef Jennifer Biesty of Scala's Bistro is preparing a fabulous 3 course Italian dinner to honor Bruni's new book.

born round

Born Round is the captivating account of an unpredictable journalistic ride from an intern’s desk at Newsweek to a dream job at the New York Times, as well as the unflinchingly honest story of Bruni’s painful, lifelong struggle with his weight. Born Round will speak to any hungry hedonist who has ever had to reign in an appetite to avoid letting out a waistband and will delight anyone interested in matters of family, matters of the heart and the role food plays in both.

Frank Bruni was named restaurant critic for the NY Times in April 2004. Before that he was the newspapers Rome Bureau chief, a white house reporter and a frequent contributor to the Sunday Times magazine.
