Can’t write much because I’m scrambling to write a 3-page paper for my Negotiations class, but my birthday gift from mom and dad just arrived. The story goes that my mother, the other day, said: “I want to get you a really nice pen for your birthday.” I replied: “WHAT?! Mom, if you’re going to spend money on a pen, I’d rather get a bunch of really good cookbooks.” Then I made her a list of the ones I wanted and told her just to get a few. Lo and behold, she bought them all!
In case the picture’s too hard to unscramble, they are:
– The French Laundry Cookbook!
– The Zuni Cafe Cookbook!
– Breads from The La Brea Bakery!
– Cooking By Hand!
– Slow Mediterranean Cooking!
I’m really excited and of course I’ll keep you up to date as I cook my way through them. Should only take 14 years. Ciao!

Please remind mom that my birthday is June 3. Let me know if she needs my new address.
I am lusting over your French Laundry Cookbook. Do we get reviews of said b-day cookbooks?
Enjoying your blog. Thanks!
