From the New York Times’ Dining Section

Catching Up, Finally, With a Worthy Trend: Mark Bittman catches up with TWO worthy trends this week – blogging, and sun-dried tomatoes. The Minimalist repents of his scorn for sun-dried tomatoes and converts whole-heartedly with recipes like Hummus With Sun-Dried Tomatoes and Shrimp With Sun-Dried Tomatoes. We say yum to both.

More from the Times’ dining section below, including wines of Bordeaux, chicken livers, and espresso evangelist Ernesto Illy…

Bordeaux’s a Bargain, and Here’s Why: Bordeaux hasn’t lost its distinctiveness in the face of California upstarts. Check out bottle recommendations.

The Best of Two Old Worlds:Chicken Liver Challah Crostini With Sage – a recipe both grandmothers and Mario Batali would approve of.

One Pot: Oxtail Soup: David Chang of Momofuku Noodle Bar and Momofuku Ssam Bar shares his recipe.

Ernesto Illy, Chairman of Coffee Company, Is Dead at 82: A fine remembrance for a man who evangelized and cared for espresso like few others.
