No heat from here -- that one has already landed on our "bad books" list.
Not because it's actually a bad book, as you say -- I actually really like
it as a *modern* cookbook, but not as a historical source.  It's going to be
a great example for our class, actually, because it's a very popular book
that gets recommended a lot, but it's not really a viable source for
historical recipes.

coming to this discussion a little late...thanks for getting it started,
Urtatim ;-)
