    marie certainly has people talking; there was an extensive discussion thread over at BGG.com (board games), now some of those people have OCD in extremis! Mind you, I can agree with some of their points of view (ie re the use of 17 pounder barrels on 25 pounder gun carriages in December of 1942). ooops! . Seriously though, the message she seems to be saying has been said for centuries (read the Tao Te Ching, or Zen Buddhism texts) and it is, as others have said above, another fad which is being marketed for her 'career'. For some us, we are way beyond the lure of tv programmes with associated books and the celebrity status of authors.

To me, they are a treasure trove of information. As far as kitchen fires go, this is not because of the cookbooks, but because of the hasty brand new cooks that don't pay attention to what the books say or what they are doing with the heat.
    Marshall, if you are ever in Italy, make sure that you visit some restaurants which specialise in regional cuisine. Apparently, they have plates and cookbooks from the specific region which are available nowhere else, you just have to ask for them.
