Just went and registered. Doesn't appear to be very active, but promises to be a veritable treasure trove of information.

Thanks for heads up.

Shirley has also just come out with the companion book, "Bakewise." I don't have it yet, but rest assured it will contain as much fabulous information as "Cookwise."

Wine is the food that completes the meal.

I've got another one for you:

Amazon.com: The Science of Cooking: Peter Barham: Books
LiGruess cara ~~~ Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, wine in the other, totally worn out and screaming "WOO HOO what a ride!"

Not many Illini out here in Bsoton. I went to IU but grew up near the other U of I (Iowa).

Go into a big box bookstore and look at the books that have been recommended. Most (like Barnes and Noble) will carry them all.

Less is not more. More is more and more is fabulous.
