One year, I gave a sous chef friend of mine: "The Whole Beast by Fergus Henderson." It's an extreme cook book for those of you who appreciate all that offal, sweetmeats, tail, brains, heads, and other rarely used delicacies of the beasts.

I liked the Faux Paws!

These were great. Thanks for the laugh everyone.

I liked Stoned Soup, until I saw it was about martyrs.

I like the Skinny Bitch one, too.

And Cans en Croute - even though it wounds me, as I am in the 'easily fooled' camp of which they speak.

So what ARE the lost ravioli recipes of Hoboken? Where were they? And who found them? And, for that matter, why?

Robin,

Stoned Soup: Recipes from the 70's. I should have thought of that ending, instead.

B.H.
