In the Mail Semi-Recently

To read:

Ace of Cakes: Inside the World of Charm City Cakes by Duff and his brother Willie. I just received this, so I haven't gotten a chance to do more than quickly flip through it, but it looks fantastic - totally my type of book. I'm sure it won't hurt that I'm a big Duff fan as it is, but I can really get behind a book about cakes that is not a cookbook. I'm betting that it deserves it's current sold-out status on Amazon. I'll report back more later.

To drink:

The awesome folks at POM Wonderful sent me several bottles of their new iced coffee products - a while ago, I have to admit. I didn't slack off on writing about them because they weren't good. I just kept forgetting.

Because they were good - really good, in fact. Rich and creamy and delicious. What's even better is that they are not at all bad for you. They might taste like they've got a million calories and fat grams, but they don't.

I also have a couple of POM blend juices in the refrigerator. I will be drinking them soon...and writing about them soon, too.

To watch:

Well, I don't have an image for this one, but I did hear recently from Discovery Doug, who alerted me to a new show on Planet Green that, in my eyes, has a lot of potential. (As an aside, Cooper and I watch a lot more Planet Green than anyone might expect.)

The show is called Future Food and it stars Homaro Cantu and Ben Roche from Chicago's Moto. Basically, it's a molecular gastronomy show. Cooper is reserving judgment - he feels like maybe the molecular gastronomy thing is overdone and not broad enough for a whole show, but I think it sounds interesting.

And that is it. The contents of my mailbox and inbox these days.

They were giving out the Pom coffee in NY during fashion week, and it was indeed good. I snagged one of those little babies every chance I got. But they were free....

Do know if Pom Coffee is available locally yet? Rob's been dying to try them.

Hmm. I thought they were available around here, but you know, I'm not 100% sure. I'll find out...
