Minted Pineapple Salad

Note: I love the wallop of unexpectedly crunchy sea salt and freshly cracked pepper in this salad, which takes it from an ordinary fruit salad to something spesh enough to serve to guests. Be sure to salt and pepper each individual portion rather than the whole dish — if not consumed immediately, the salt will just serve to draw the moisture out of the fruit and will soggy things up a bit.

you will need:

  • 1 pineapple (peeled, quartered, cored and thinly sliced)
  • 4 navel oranges, supremed or peeled and thinly sliced crosswise
  • 2 T good extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 small bunch mint (about 30 leaves), julienned
  • 1/2 pint raspberries
  • coarse sea salt and black pepper, for serving


Combine pineapple, oranges and olive oil in a large bowl and toss thoroughly. Scatter raspberries and mint over the top. Plate to shallow bowls and serve with coarse sea salt and freshly ground pepper.

The Wes Anderson Collection – Easter Reading

Matt Zoller Seitz hat ein Buch über das Œuvre von Wes Anderson geschrieben und in den vergangenen Woche selbige in Form diverser Video-Essays aufgearbeitet. Angefangen bei Durchgeknallt und “Rushmore” über “The Royal Tenenbaums” und “Die Tiefseetaucher” bis hin zu “Darjeeling Limited”, “Der fantastische Mr. Fox” und seinem jüngsten Werk “Moonrise Kingdom”:

In sieben liebevoll gestalteten Kapiteln lässt Matt Zoller Seitz das Schaffen eines einmaligen Regisseurs Revue passieren und wer gerade keine Zeit für eine ausgiebige Retrospektive findet, sollte jeden Abend vor dem Einschlafen mindestens eines dieser Videos anschauen!

Adapted from the book THE WES ANDERSON COLLECTION by Matt Zoller Seitz

Wes Anderson is one of the most influential voices from the past two decades of American cinema. A true auteur, Anderson is known for the visual artistry, inimitable tone, and idiosyncratic characterizations that make each of his films—Bottle RocketRushmoreThe Royal TenenbaumsThe Life Aquatic with Steve ZissouThe Darjeeling LimitedFantastic Mr. Fox, and Moonrise Kingdom—instantly recognizable as “Andersonian.” The Wes Anderson Collection is the first in-depth overview of Anderson’s filmography, guiding readers through his life and career. Previously unpublished photos, artwork, and ephemera complement a book-length conversation between Anderson and award-winning critic Matt Zoller Seitz. The interview and images are woven together in a meticulously designed book that captures the spirit of his films: melancholy and playful, wise and childish—and thoroughly original.
