Boy, talk about too many archives, blogs and chefs, especially in France. And they
forgot the oldest and perhaps largest website (greatchefs.com) that has over 3100 chefs videos YouTube.com/greatchefs

Awe, don't give up on that other blogger, just yet. She may write something you like better some day!

Oh, Elizabeth, I never thought you'd actually ready my blog! I think you are a GREAT writer and certainly capable of a great book. I am sooooo sorry and hope I didn't offend you! In fact, I'm going to take out that line, which was really just there for dramatic effect leading into the "buy David's book now".
I am so ashamed.
Write another book and prove me wrong, please!!

Oh good grief, don't you dare be ashamed!! There's nothing personal in what one likes or doesn't like, and nothing at all good in a world where no one is brave enough to have an opinion.
I thought what you wrote was interesting and constructive and nothing to be sorry for.
I love your blog. I'm a happy home cook and in awe of people whose skills are much greater. I wish I had more time for it.

Bless you - I am so happy you enjoy the blog as I have certainly enjoyed lurking on yours for the last three years. I just felt like the bit about your book came off a lot harsher than I meant it to be. What I should have said is "I love this blog so much that I actually spent several afternoons sifting through all her archives and laughing until I cried. And so when the book arrived, I was disappointed that it wasn't completely new laugh-until-you-cry material." Because, you know, raising a couple of kids and blogging every day doesn't take THAT much time - surely you could have squeezed in a whole new novel too right? ; )
That's where David has the advantage over both of us: unlimited free time to write!
