News: Now Cooking for Two

Out of the frying pan into divorce court goes famous UK chef Heston Blumenthal. HuffPo is reporting (or is that linking to reports) Blumenthal left his wife of 22 years for a Nigella Lawson knockoff notably known for her single’s only cookbook, The Pleasure is All Mine. Currently ranking at #103,906  on Amazon, Suzanne Pirret is being referred to as “the American cookbook goddess”. Pffft.

Most reviews on Amazon give the book a good review, but I’m not going to rush out to get this one. First off, the “look inside” teaser on Amazon doesn’t really give me a clue as to what her dishes are like. Sure it shows the index, a little snipped from a chapter (which reads like a novel. Do I really want to be reading while cooking?!?!?!) A bit of a disappointment in a world that over looks being able to cook smaller portions. 

Perhaps, Blumenthal’s wife will start her own blog and serve up some good dish on the whole drama.
