  1. $377.49 at Amazon right now. Sorely tempted.

    Cookbooks 2013

    Ditto. I loved watching Phil Howard on "Great British Menu".
  3. This was my first attempt from MCAH also, and it turned out great. I used to make panna cotta from a Martha Stewart recipe but the texture was never as good as "restaurant quality". This raspberry version was spot on. As to leftover raspberrries, I saved some perfect ones for decoration and the rest went in my belly while I was making the dish. A keeper for sure.
  4. Tee hee - that's precisely why I love it!
  5. My copy is waiting for me at home after work. Hmm, I feel a sore throat coming on.

    Cooking with "Modernist Cuisine" (Part 3)

    I made the Chris A version of M&C this morning. I used Emmental and cheddar, and with a fair amount of sampling along the way, I got a cheese yield of exactly 400 grams, or 2.5 recipes. Therefore I scaled up the water, pasta and salt and had at it. The results were damn good, but I will scale back the salt a bit more next time. I could also taste the beer a tad too much, and I think upthread there were substitutions that I will have to consider. I am seeing nathanm speak next month in NYC - I just hope my copy of MCAH arrives in time for him to sign.

    Top Chef Masters: Season 4

    Art Smith is sure getting the "bitchy-name-dropping-drama-queen" edit.
  8. I thought the opposite. I hope you're correct.
  9. Noooooooo! I was really pulling for Nyesha to run the table.

    How to Cook Like Heston (TV GB)

    uknova.com is a good source for torrents of British telly.
  11. Last time I was over in the UK, I bought several cookbooks. I wish I had just bought them on Amazon and had them shipped. Those suckers were HEAVY and schlepping them back to the US was a PITA.
  12. I agree. The interface is annoying (very herky-jerky), but the content is well worth the money.

    Asparagus pee

    I didn't notice and color change in my pee, but #2 was scary.
  14. I am a fairly slow eater compared to most i dine with. I don't count chews or seconds, but I do eat at a pace where I can enjoy my food. No, not an hour to eat a bowl of soup, either. That's hyperbole.It seems to be one of those trollish columns to get hits. For instance, if I penned a screed that I don't fancy sharing a table with a guy with long greasy-looking hair.

    Asparagus pee

    I am pretty sure the smell has only occurred with me starting in my mid-40's.
