A different kind of cookbook
A friend of mine from way back is now the author of his very own cookbook. But this isn't just any cookbook. It could be the holder of the weirdest title for a cookbook in the history of cookbooks. The title of this tome? Whisking With Chlamydia.
I'm happy to say that the book doesn't actually touch on what it's like to prepare elaborate meals while suffering from the effects of a nasty STD. "Chlamydia" is the name of an oversized whisk the author bought several years ago. What kind of a cookbook writer names a phallic kitchen instrument after a venereal disease? A cookbook writer with a sense of humor, that's who.
The book includes sections on quick meals and an appendix on how to properly prepare pasta. Adding oil to the water is apparently a serious no-no. I had no idea. You can download your very own copy of Whisking With Chlamydia by clicking here.
