  1. Thank YOU for participating. It's been most interesting to learn a bit more about the path the book followed since its conception.

    Saffy, thank you for the soup recipe. Would you mind posting the pumpkin bread and pumpkin scone recipes? Thank you so much!
  3. The show is repeated at 1 a.m. EST
  4. Thank you! I am looking forward to the answer.
  5. Leslie, when looking back on this project is there anything you wish you had done differently, whether in your research or your writing? Anything that you would revise for a second edition of the book?
  6. You mention in the "Interviews" topic that you visited Daniel a few times before writing your proposal. Was it hard to find a publisher for this book? Would you have gone on with the project if no publisher had signed it on based only on the proposal? Do you think that the success of Kitchen Confidential made it easier for The Fourth Star to be signed on by a publishing company? Thank you.
  7. Thank you very much for your informative and honest answer. I did read Thomas McNamee's review. Unfortunately the American public wants the dirt on anyone, but it is always deplorable to see the NY Times condone such a fact.
  8. How do you react to reviews of your books? Do they influence how you work on the next project or how you write? Thank you for participating in this Q&A.

    Taro taro taro

    I have a few Caribbean soup/stew recipes made with taro, but they often require a lot of ingredients. Let me know if you are interested and I can email you Word docs.
  10. Malawry, thank you for yet another great entry. I too wish you'd post every day! You give a great insight into life in cooking school.
  11. She really annoys me too. Her other show, 30-minute meals, is alright, even if too simplistic at times. But in this one she has reached new heights in bubliness that I didn't know existed... She sounds like a kindergarten teacher and that's not what I'm looking for when watching a food or food-related show. And chopjwu12 is right to point out that she never tips anyone more than a few cents. If eating for under $40/day means shortchanging others, let's stay home! Anyway, does that show really have a purpose? Hopefully it won't be renewed (I find myself saying that about more and more shows these days).
  12. From the FoodTV newsletter: >>Here's your chance to become a television star! Food Network is planning a new show based on your home videos. Whether you're shopping, slicing, dicing, cooking, overcooking, serving, dining, digesting, or indigesting, we want to see your kitchen bloopers and great moments in culinary history. << Doesn't look like the level of programming will be raised any time soon.
