I really can't say enough about this book. Even at over 600 pages, I devoured this in about 3 days on my trip to Europe a few summers ago. There [i]were[/i] a few pages that I almost couldn't read because I'm too squeamish and one of the side stories ...more

Appears to be a great all-around cookbook, plus has best-of product reviews. I haven't tried any of the recipes yet, as I just bought it yesterday, but it looks to be a book I'll be referring to often.

Kurt Vonnegut
“And on the subject of burning books: I want to congratulate librarians, not famous for their physical strength or their powerful political connections or their great wealth, who, all over this country, have staunchly resisted anti-democratic bullies who have tried to remove certain books from their shelves, and have refused to reveal to thought police the names of persons who have checked out those titles.

Kurt Vonnegut, A Man Without a Country

Bill Bryson
“Tune your television to any channel it doesn't receive and about 1 percent of the dancing static you see is accounted for by this ancient remnant of the Big Bang. The next time you complain that there is nothing on, remember that you can always watch the birth of the universe.”
Bill Bryson, A Short History of Nearly Everything

Kurt Vonnegut
“And I urge you to please notice when you are happy, and exclaim or murmur or think at some point, 'If this isn't nice, I don't know what is.”
Kurt Vonnegut, A Man Without a Country
