    I've heard that organic meats (especially beef) taste better. Do you feel it makes a difference?

    I think there's a lot of confusion about what the term "organic" means, Diana: I know I'm confused. That being said, I have recently begun to seek out grass-fed beef as I believe there's an appreciable difference in the taste. Try it yourself sometime. Grill a couple of T-bones, for example--one grass-fed and the other corn-fed. My assistant just told me about steaks she recently tried that were excellent and fairly priced from a fairly company called, I think, Nebraska Star Beef. I just returned from a 3-week European book tour, so haven't tried it myself.
