America's Test Yearning

Hi, reader. I wrote this in 2003 and it's now more than five years old. So it may be very out of date; the world, and I, have changed a lot since I wrote it! I'm keeping this up for historical archive purposes, but the me of today may 100% disagree with what I said then. I rarely edit posts after publishing them, but if I do, I usually leave a note in italics to mark the edit and the reason. If this post is particularly offensive or breaches someone's privacy, please contact me.

My huge crush on Christopher Kimball of "America's Test Kitchen" continues, despite the way that Bridget Lancaster makes eyes at him. He's giving cooking classes this fall and I'm signed up for the one on September 18th (in Berkeley, not San Francisco, despite what the page says). There's still a bit of room (call store or registration number for details).

Also, happy jig, ATK marathon this Saturday. I knew their philosophy was scientific and pragmatic, but never ontological: "If you put the lemons in at the end, is it really roasted lemon chicken?"
