Today's Cool Book

Isn't new, but its still cool. What Einstein Told His Cook: Kitchen Science Explained by Robert L. Wolke Not only does it have recipes (very cool) but it also has just interesting kitchen type anecdotes like "Why do we put salt in the water when boiling pasta?" and "Is White Chocolate Caffeine-Free?" Turns out the answer to that one was "Yes. It's also chocolate-free." (followed by explanation.) I would say its similar to Food Network's "Good Eats" Similar, but not the same.

If you're interested in such things, I suggest you swing by the library and check it out.

There is also What Einstein Told His Cook 2: The Sequel.
