    You really have to be a gifted writer to bing intrigue to food safety. Whenever I cook poultry, I tend to over cook it, for safety reasons. It doesn't seem to be necessary, as long as you cook it long enough, and stick to the guidelines in the plethora of charts.

    I've been lusting over that set for a while. I'm going to just have to order it, instead of torturing myself.

    $625? Such unnecessary extravagant from a billionaire. I'm sure you can get much cheaper poultry cooking advice elsewhere

    @Minh: FWIW, I've seen it as low as $495. Before you judge, you should take a look at what's actually in there. It's more akin to a work of art than anything else.

    That said, it's still extravagant. However, that's not going to stop me from picking up a set. Tongue Out

    I've seen the pics... I've heard him on NPR pushing the books... it has mega production values, and there's no way he'd recoup the publishing cost by sales. Not that losing money would bother the guy. He's busy making $$$ from a company that many say epitomize what's wrong w/ the software patent system

    @Minh: He should file for a patent on electronic books and then sue Amazon and B&N.
