New Boyfriend is Up!

Do you like food?  I don’t!  But this guy sure does!

Go check out the write-up, then come back here to comment, swap recipes, tell me you don’t think cheese is weird at all, explain what “tempering an egg” means.  Whatever!

    Ok, yes, I’ve often wondered how they write books about what plants are poisonous, for example … did someone die eating them!?!? That cheese thing made me laugh out loud. The guy must have been pretty hungry. Well, and he used animal pelt as Saran Wrap, so he wasn’t that easily grossed out either.
    Um, yes, and ham. Ew.
    I like your take on baking vs. cooking. So Eddie and I!!

    Surely the Soylent Green thing just means… that you’re a people person?

    My rule of thumb is that anything that was part of an animal is likely to be safe to eat, whereas anything that was part of a plant is likely to be toxic. It’s surprisingly accurate…

    You’ll notice that he changed his recipes in the later eps because he had a heart attack and his doctor told him he needs to change his diet entirely, so his later shows reflect this diet change.

    The recipes don’t actually seem to have changed, actually — he doesn’t only cook “healthy” foods now or anything — but he did lose 50 pounds and has talked about how he did it in at least one episode of Good Eats. One of the things I like about him is that when he lost weight, he did it not by going on a crazy crash diet, but instead just breaking his foods up into three categories using common sense — eat a lot, eat sometimes, eat rarely. The “eat rarely” list he only indulges from once a week or so, but he never denies himself any kind of food. Refreshing to see a celebrity lose weight by being completely reasonable about it instead of completely bonkers.

    Marni, that Saran Wrap comment made me laugh out loud!

    I’ve been in love with AB for the longest time. My husband knows this and accepts it for fact. I also believe that he’s got a bit of a man crush on him as well. :)

    And yes, cooking is an art and baking is a science. I excel at cooking but not so much with the baking.

    If Cooking is an Art, and Baking is a Science, then what’s Eating? Phys. Ed.? I read thru the whole turkey derrick thing, hoping there would be a joke at the end – Phooey!

  7. Meg Says:

    Phys Ed! Hilarious!!

    For those who have forgotten, or who would just like to learn about it for the first time, this website has definitions, instructions, and nice science-y explanations on tempering eggs and mmmmchocolate.
