Granted, you may be the sort of person who reads Lucky Peach and daydreams about Arzak eggs and impossibly rich pork broth instead of salad, but you might want to start checking out Cooking Light anyway. No, this is not an intervention. (Unless you want it to be.) Cooking Light is about a lot more than, well, cooking light. And the magazine is adding two new columnists in the coming months. Who? Well, that's what's interesting.

Rozanne Gold, a four-time James Beard Award-winning chef and cookbook author, will begin writing a column called "Radically Simple Cooking" in May. And in June, Naomi Duguid will debut her column, "Global Pantry." Duguid is the author or co-author with Jeffrey Alford of a great many books, including Beyond the Great Wall, Mangoes & Curry Leaves and Seductions of Rice. A food anthropologist -- specializing in the food of Southeast Asia -- as much as she is a writer of cookbooks, Duguid is the sort of writer who could make us read TV Guide or Popular Mechanics, if she suddenly decided to write for them. Not a bad idea, really.
