It will be filled with suspense, except for wondering who won't survive, mainly the critters being boiled alive.

I know this is off-topic, but do you look at Mad Men? Are you into food history? I was thinking about food from the early 1960s. What would be on the menu at a fancy French restaurant like Lutece and a Chinese restaurant for middle class gringos? What meals would Italian immigrants / first generation Italians prepare?

how i've missed Iron Chef Japan. although, it was never called Iron Chef JAPAN, just IRON CHEF. as much as i love alton brown, Iron Chef America just isn't as fun to watch.

Yes, dear anonymous possum, we do look at Mad Men. We're big fans of the show, and we are fascinated by the culinary aspect as much as by the design and thematic aspects. There's all the talk after Roger has his heart attack about butter and cream, and Betty's always cooking, etc. We also love food history (have you checked out the Old Foodie's blog? It's fantastic).
