In case you missed it, this weekend's New York Times Magazine was all about food. If you're like me, I couldn't stay inside yesterday — the weather was too perfect, so I'll end up reading the magazine article-by-article all week long.

An open letter to the next farmer-in-chief, by Michael Pollan

Recipe Redux: The Community Cookbook, by Amanda Hesser

Slide show: Food Groups, by Lucas Foglia

A mealtime manifesto; An interview with foodie author Laurie David, by Deborah Soloman
