if you're into food books, i recommend reading "the man who ate everything" and "it must have been something i ate" by jeffery steingarten.  He's a great writer, the books are collections of his column from vogue ,and i wish I had never seen Iron Chef America, because he's an arrogant jackass of a judge on it..




If you need more insight into competitive eating, the not as well-titled

Eat This Book: A Year of Gorging and Glory on the Competitive Eating Circuit

is also around.  (Not that I have read either :-)


I love the Diamond Age, it was the first Stephenson I ever read and for a long time my favorite. I read Omnivore's Dilemma a month ago, finished Steingarten's It Must Have Been Something I Ate this morning and Bourdain's Nasty Bits is up next. I think we have lots of book overlap!


Daryn: yep, I loved both of Steingarten's books!

And I guess I've been lucky in not having watched any of Iron Chef America, then--watching Bobby Flay stand up on the kitchen counter in that big championship thing they had a couple of years ago turned me off of the idea of an Iron Chef America for good, I think. :)
