  1. Ah ha, the chef is from Canada (Ottawa, not Ottowa as Amazon would have it) so I had to buy it.

  5. My brother made this nice little step stool for me out of curly maple. It fits under a shelf and is easy to slide into place since it has felt pads on the feet. I also use tongs. I’m only 5’3” on a good day so upper cupboards tend to be populated with less used items.
  6. Port is also a good choice.
  7. A Guardian columnist's take: Is this cooking for idiots? My week eating nothing but "recipe box" food
  8. In Canada, perhaps elsewhere, for $1.99: The New Portuguese Table: Exciting Flavors from Europe's Western Coast, David Leite The Sweet Life in Paris, David Lebovitz

    Clean Meat

    Those are vegans, no?
  11. Happily for me, the David and Olney are still on sale in Canada today and are now in my possession.
  12. Thanks for taking us along for the ride Anna and Kerry. A summer classic.
  13. Yes she did and had a blog on the same subject: The Pleasures of Cooking for One

  15. Thank you for bringing us along on your food adventures Duvel! You had me checking airfare to Hong Kong.
  16. I agree. AbeBooks is a really good resource.
  17. Yes I like the carts too. All those temptations rolling by.
  18. I love the "this handle is disinfected four times a day" sign. Very reassuring. Are there a lot of restaurants in Hong Kong still using carts for dim sum? Here in Vancouver they are an endangered species.
  19. At these prices I buy them and read them like novels before bedtime. If I'm really inspired I'll buy the hard copy.

    Plastic wrap

    Can you give a quick description of how one "cater-wraps"? I don't have a problem with using plastic wrap but I'm curious.
