An Old Book, But a Good Book

This book took me a long time to read, but it is really good. I’m sure most cooks have already read it because it is from the 90’s. It is written by Jeffery Steingarten, he is the pompous judge on Iron Chef America. I was always like, “who does this guy think he is, why is he so pompous?” Every page of this book is why he has every right to be pompous, the info is amazing. Now when I watch Iron Chef I really like him.

He graduates from Harvard Law or something and then somehow gets a job at Vogue being a food critic. So he decides that in order to be worthy of such a task he needs to research food and he does so with an thoroughness, and intensity that is awesome. He does crazy research in his apartment and also flies around the world to find the real best of the best.

    You have been so amazingly sweet to let me borrow any of them over the years, but I was very careful to keep track. So this is where we’re at. I traded you my Alain Ducasse, Le Grand Livre De Cusine for your Jamie at Home! haha you’re like the older smarter brother that tricked me. I also borrowed Culinary Artistry and Jamie’s Kitchen. I left Culinary Artistry at Ben’s for you to pick up, we talked about this and you said that was cool, but I kept Jamie’s Kitchen, because you said I could. I also have your 100 mile diet book because you said you didn’t want it back. And you have my Wild Fermentation Book.
