    Julia Child’s wonderful The Way to Cook is also on sale. I was on the publishing team (typesetting) for that one, and Miss Julia was so wonderful to work with (proofreader wipes away a little tear)…

    I used a couple recipes out of Mastering for a dinner party last week, and a couple out of The Way (does this sound like a cult? Oooh, it is…) and my boss, who is a quiet, geeky fellow but well-traveled and a bit of a foodie, suddenly realized I was worth much more than a few pieces of well-written documentation, heh. If you are already a terrific cook and you’re out to stun everyone you know, get Mastering. If you are an OK or better cook and you just want to get terrific food on the table, get The Way.

    So I watched Julie & Julia yesterday (yes, I know, but it’s not a terrible movie and not as much of a complete chick-flick as I was expecting). Anyway, I’m interested in getting Mastering the Art of French Cooking. As a long time fan of Alton Brown, I’m interested in expanding my culinary expertise, and I’ve heard good things about Mrs. Child (other than Alton, she’s the only cooking-show personality to ever win a Peabody). Can anyone recommend this book?

    • speedwell (propagandist and secular snarkist) says:

      Julia was the best. I said some about Mastering in the post just above yours, but I’ll say it a bit differently: If cooking is a serious avocation and you are dedicated to becoming a top-notch practitioner, or if you have a prominent bookshelf in your home and you want your guests to think you are, then buy Mastering. If you are a “good general cook” and you want to know how to do most of the fancy stuff you see in recipes, get The Way; it covers a lot of the same ground with excellent pictures and more help.

        I’m a huge fan of complexity, but I have found Julia Child’s Mastering the Art of French Cooking to be more practical as a study of cooking itself as a lifestyle, and as an art form, rather than a real guide to making good food in less than say, five hours. It’s not that I don’t have the skill or patience or desire to be that complex – I feel like with a lot of her recipes, she puts so much emphasis on the technique that she ends up using ten steps when you really only need five. This is why I enjoy Alton Brown so much. He emphasizes technique, but not at the expense of one’s sanity. I can’t spend six hours in the kitchen making one meal. Who can? I find “Mastering” just a little too rusty in that regard. You have to remember that the books were conceived for American housewives. They didn’t have jobs, six hours was nothing to them. But modern women need the same amount of technique and complexity without requiring a half day’s work, and without sacrificing the freshness of the food (to hell with Rachel Ray and Sandra Lee!).

        I would also recommend ‘I Know How to Cook’ by Ginette Mathiot. She’s another chef whose works were published decades earlier (1930s, I believe). Her cookbook is now finally published in the U.S. in English, and it’s amazing. There are recipes that are not only delicious, but not overly time consuming. Her version of boeuf bourguignon is only about two or three hours, and most of it is simmering.

    As of now, the Eyeclops mini-projector is $54.97. Where they got $29.99 is anyone’s guess…

    “Underworld Trilogy DVD Set for $11.99 + Shipping”

    $20.99 for the first one, $5 for the second, and a $14 credit for being willing to sit through the third.

    I know a lot of my friends are looking at picking up televisions and I think I found a cool deal. A 42″ LG plasma HDTV is on sale for only $499. The price isn’t as good as “Black Friday,” but I know I paid a lot more for my television. I found the deal here: http://www.tvlampsnbulbs.com/2009/12/42pq30-lg-720p-plasma-hdtv-499-300-off-msrp/

    • SexCpotatoes says:

      I’d be careful, a couple of drawbacks with that tv:

      1. It *barely* does HD. 720p is nothing compared to 1080i/p.

      2. Plasma TVs are notorious energy hogs. Don’t be surprised if your electric bill starts taking larger and larger bites out of your wallet.

    • pecan 3.14159265 says:

      A 42″ 720p is ridiculous. A 32″ 720p is fine, but once you get to 42″ you really do want that 1080p.

    GOSH DARN IT! If only the EEE PC had the 6 cell instead of the 3 cell :( I’ll never find the one I want under $300 :(
