I was reading a piece on Richards and he mention these guys. I do remember them but wasn't paying much attention back then. They are a worth while listen.

Always a fan of Richards, in spite of some of his craziness, this is a wonderful listen. I really like his older laid back style but throwing in some true old Stones sounds as well.

I've used this book in the Assisted Living facility I manage and it has done us well. It takes a lot of people back to when they were young. Yet the book can easily be used for anyone.

Dated and limited but a good read. I love books that have a unique historic twist to them. I'd recommend to chef and reader alike.

Good recipes. Doing fried chicken for me has never been an easy task. I don't know why as I can do well with almost everything else. This book helped.

Always a good read. Kinky and odd but real and worth the trouble. I have every issue so far and always look for the next one with anticipation.

5.0 out of 5 stars Skinny Italian Chef, Nov. 16 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I usually ignore these "Coffee Table" style books especially by world renown chefs because of the ingredient availability and the cost. However, I would recommend this book to anyone. It is a well written story of Bottura's rise to being one of the best restaurants in the world.
The ingredient list and preparation are still going to be a serious challenge to the average chef (after all Bottura has Michelin stars) but it is well worth the price. I have read it through a couple of times and even tried some of the less complex recipes. They worked!
It is a worthy buy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Seashore Review, Sept. 14 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Your article "Shell Station" is worth the price of the magazine. But so are most of the articles in this edition.
It is always great to see Bourdain back. Beach Town is another great contribution to this months rendition of the bounty of the sea. (Anthony Bourdain directed my attention to Mitcham's Creole Gumbo and all that Jazz, for which I will be forever grateful).

Another great edition. Entertaining and a wonderful way to pass time during my current knee replacement surgery (blast, grrrrr, s*** and all those things). Never race motorcycles when you're young then expect to survive unblemished and functioning in a commercial kitchen when you get older.

I recommend getting the whole series of Lucky Peach and keeping up with them. You'll get hooked, just like I am.

I was drawn to this artist through the use of one of her songs in a commercial. So I bought it. I like the album but haven't been convinced to get more yet. I think I will though as her tunes get a hold of you and grab.
