I've been working on my GoodReads selections recently. Following is a short review of a book I really, really enjoyed.
The Sharper Your Knife, the Less You Cry: Love, Laughter, and Tears at the World's Most Famous Cooking School by Kathleen Flinn
rating: 5 of 5 stars
Fabulous book about a woman who lost her job and decided to learn how to cook at the best cooking school, Cordon Bleu. Fascinating look at what an education at Cordon Bleu entails, and a lot of interesting recipes.
Plus, a good explanation of things I will never eat in my life. Ever. Especially since many of them are not kosher ;).
This is on my "to buy" list.

By "things I will never eat in my life", I mean food items such as head cheese. Ugh. I think there was something to do with a pig's stomach lining. Ick!
But I do want to try a kosher version of her beef bourguignon, ever since trying Susie Fishbein's version on Passover.
