Move Over Julia Child!

Many of the great classical music pieces that we hear so often that they become commonplace (nothing says high culture like a cat food commercial set to something catchy from the Romantic era), were not well received by the critics or society at large in their day.  Many great and enduring works of literature (like my beloved Count of Monte Cristo) were esteemed as nothing more than tabloid-grade fiction for which the authors were sometimes reimbursed by the page.  So it is with this gem; a culinary muse for the 21st century written by a misunderstood genius who was simply ahead of her time.  Put down Alton Brown's I'm Just Here for the Food and Harold McGee's On Food and Cooking: The Science and Lore of the Kitchen.  Pick up a copy of Microwaving for One.  I don't know how the James Beard Foundation missed this one when the awards were being given out.  Can't wait to get my hands on a copy.  Let me know if you run across one.  Just check out this link for some great testimonials.

Can't wait!

Beep!  Mmmmm!  Appetizers - Jalepeno Beepers.  The main course - Radiated Radiotore with Tuna and Creamed Corn! And for dessert - Nuked Alaska!  There will be no leftovers tonight.
