    Hey hvacker buy this !!!

    http://www.oldcookbooks.com/product/...for_Today.html

    I bought this book back aways. You never hear or see of Pol Martin. He could be dead for all I know.

    But his recipes are down to earth, different and easy to make. I know what your are saying. Some of these shows are far out. I don't know about your town but up here in Vermont we aren't going to find half the ingredients for some of those recipes. "Planktons and Shallots ??????"

    That Pol Martin makes things with stuff you can find in your pantry or local supermarket.

    Well, since I like your cooking style, I trusted you on this un Benncool.
    Ordered it off e-bay for 8 bucks. I'll write a full report later.

    BTW......... I find it funny to try to cook and watch the food network while cooking. I tried to make jalapeno poppers with it on one day. Wound up making jalapeno stuffed with cream cheese containing blu cheese and chives and topped with smoked salmon. BTW I think I've learned more from Alton Brown than the rest of the network together. Dont watch emeril anymore. I dont wanna get fat like that! Pork fat dont rule obviously.

    When my son graduated from New England Culinary School, Emeril was the keynote speaker. This was about a year before he hit the big time.

    He was an honest and inspirational speaker. Also got his autographed book.

    But like you said, his cooking is far out. If I had time to drive out to Rhode Island and shop for dinner I could probably make some of his reciepts.

    What i like about Alton Brown is that he explains what cut of meet you need and why. some others just say "go get yourself a good cut of beef"

    He'll even break down something as simple as vinegar. I now carry 4 kinds, and know why.

    First time I watched Giada was just cause she was cute, but she made Fried Raviolis that looked frickin amazing!~



    Heres the recipe. I take um all the time to dinner parties, always a hit. I HATE to go home with a 1/2 full plate, so I only take winners!
