My Crush on Francis Lam

If a man sporting a tatoo of chopstick diagrams weren't enough to make a girl swoon...

From his bio on MediaBistro.com:

Francis Lam is a contributing editor at Gourmet magazine and writes a weekly column for gourmet.com. He is also a regular contributor to the Financial Times. His work has appeared in Wine and Spirits, New York Newsday, nymag.com, and in the 2006, 2007, and 2008 editions of Best Food Writing. He has also worked with several nonprofit organizations. He is a graduate of the University of Michigan, where he went on to teach writing and literature. He is also a graduate of the Culinary Institute of America and makes the meanest ratatouille. Francis' three tattoos represent each of the things most important in the world to him: food, art, and love.

Check out his online articles on Gourmet.com. All of them are great, I'd especially recommend reading the recipe for Koshary, which made me really fall for him hard...its like he's right there coaching you in the kitchen. Anywho, break out your favorite vintage enamel cast pots and go for it! I photoed mine here, because since aquiring it, its become one of my favorite objects and always brightens me up when I see it.

Its virtually cookware porn, no? Just reads "Made in Denmark" on the bottom. Search "Denmark" and "enamel" on ebay for similar results, or "Dansk" which makes lots of similar stuffs.
