"Perhaps the most impressive of all the cookbook blogs are the three devoted to the 2004 edition of Gourmet magazine's "The Gourmet Cookbook" -- all 5¼ pounds and 1,300-odd recipes of it. Befitting this culinary Everest, all three writers are overachievers in their professional lives."

--Lee Gomes, The Wall Street Journal, May 28, 2008
"I should have told you before how much I've been enjoying reading your thoughts. You seem like such a great cook."

--Ruth Reichl, Editor-in-Chief of Gourmet Magazine, June 8 2008, comment on "Chocolate Velvet Ice Cream".

Thanks, Lisa! or, Melissa Gets Press!

Many thanks to syndicated food columnist Lisa Messinger, who mentioned me and my blog (my blog and me?) in her recent article entitled "Updated Existing Recipes for an Easy Way to Innovate"! Not content to let her 2006 cookbook stand as the last word on superfoods, cook Jenny Jones is refining, refining, refining and she brings those recipe improvements to her website. Lisa lists many of those improvements, and mentions one of her own from her cookbook "The Tofu Book: the New American Cuisine"--a recipe for tofu chocolate chip cookies. (!) Who knows--maybe someday if Gourmet ever releases an updated edition of The Gourmet Cookbook they'll use some of the suggested improvements we Gourmet bloggers have mentioned in our exploratory fun-fest of cooking.
