The Hunger

The Hunger: A Story of Food, Desire, and Ambition The Hunger: A Story of Food, Desire, and Ambition by John Delucie

My rating: 1 of 5 stars
The book reads like a glorified timeline told out of order with a few shallow mostly cliché introspective footnotes thrown in. Mentions of interesting dishes he has created are scattered throughout the book and given minimal instructions, limiting the possibility of an aspiring cook being able to duplicate them. Enjoy his food but skip his writing.

RIA Unleashed Boston November 13, 2009

I just wanted to recommend to anyone who will be in the Boston area on November 13, 2009 that you should head to RIA Unleashed. Formerly called Flex Camp Boston this is one the lowest cost highest content conferences I've attended. Tickets for this year are going for $60 or less depending on how early you register. Not being above a little self promotion, when you register let them know I (Daniel Rinehart) sent you :) For those that weren't able to attend the last couple of years, a list of talks is below.
