One of the great moments in my time in the SCA was when I was  
patiently trying to teach four or five fighters how to make puff  
pastry (height and upper body strength being useful things behind a  
rolling pin), and they just weren't getting it at all, until I said  
something about lamination, and one of them yelled out, "Holy sh**!  
We're making Damascus steel!!! I _knew_ this was the coolest!"

Hey, somewhere I have a copy of a book about cooking on your car  
engine. I bet those recipes could be adapted pretty easily...

brioche!" / "If there's no bread to be had, one has to say, let them  
eat cake!"

"Confessions", 1782
