So, my sweetie just picked up a book called "Great Italian Chefs and Their Secrets" at the library. I don't know how she got it home.

It's over a food wide, two feet long, and about the weight of an OED. Lots of pictures. I can't imagine who would buy it, other than a library.

I supposed it could be a coffee table book, provided your coffee table was made of welded steel I-beams.

More later when I actually page through the thing.

... hmmm, I'm pretty sure the audience for this book is Amy.

The recipes are very modern, and require far too many steps for a home cook. Example:

"Pistacio, almond, and hazelnut-crusted black bass with mustard ice cream"

However, the book would be an interesting set of ideas for a restaurant chef. Also, if you like reading magazine profiles of chefs, there's 2-3 pages about each of the couple dozen Italian chefs in the book.

Amy, you might see if your library has this. Not really the book for me, though.

perhaps if you attach the I-beams to the book, it could be a coffee table :lol:
