"As a former restaurant critic, food editor and talk show host and the author of six cookbooks - including "Arthur Schwartz's New York City Food: An Opinionated History and More Than 100 Legendary Recipes," published last year by Stewart, Tabori & Chang - Mr. Schwartz knows from kitchens. He has renovated and cooked his way through every sort of kitchen you might imagine - from the tiniest hot-plate-style Murphy kitchen to a full-blown custom-crafted kitchen in Cornwall, Conn. But they're all behind him now."
"Seven years ago, he and his partner, Bob Harned, a law librarian, left Manhattan for Mr. Schwartz's native Brooklyn, to a large two-bedroom in Park Slope near Eastern Parkway that they had bought for $290,000. Four years ago, they bought the one-bedroom next door, for $265,000, so they could have a dining room."
Be sure to catch the slide show too. Buying the apartment next door to have two kitchens? Maybe there's money in the food writing business afterall?
