  1. I finished it yesterday and enjoyed it as well. he does seem happy w/ his lot in life and has toned down his bad boy ways since becoming a father. he still is outspoken and opinionated and not afraid to say what he thinks and why he thinks it. he also seems quite comfortable poking fun at his own personae. nevertheless he still pulls no punches and is more than willing to call a turd a turd. he didn't exactly bash alinea or achatz, just didn't enjoy his meal there. he gives waters her due before calling her on her utter nonsense. finally he truly does let james beard and alan rickman have it and makes a damn good case why. fine read and easily digested.

    absolutely stunning presentation there.
  3. I'm curious about his bar project as well. especially, the possibility of serving pub fare...which is intriguing merely because it could/should be relatively affordable.
  4. very interesting and reasonably priced. kinda exciting project, I'd say.

  6. I picked up essentials of classic italian cooking for $5 at the local big box store.
  7. I'll second the recommendation of The Art of Simple Food. great simple recipes w/ fresh local ingredients and fantastic results.

    that just looks great.
  14. every bit as good as advertised. the oil temp got away from me on the first two pieces and they came out a bit too dark, but I ate them anyways. golden brown moist tender and very tasty. also simple to prepare. this one will become a staple recipe although the wife doesn't really like it when I fry food. she did love this chicken though.
