Talking about NPR : ‘The Scavenger’s Guide to Haute Cuisine’

I listened to this interview last night on NPR.  I think that the verbal interview was better than the article posted here.  The idea of talking a 100 year old cook book and then trying to follow the recipes was intriguing.  Making dishes based on what was available to royalty in last century seems neat.  It sounded like some things were overly complex just to be complex (i.e. cook something in a goat bladder and then discard it and present it in something else).

Some of what this guys has done is down right nasty… but then again, it was interesting. It sounded like the guests that sampled his meals kept a journal at the table to record the thoughts, tastes, and smells of the event.
