Read it and Weep

Apr 11, 2013

Do you want to learn to cook but don't know where to start? Timothy Ferriss will teach you just the bare essentials, from buying ramekins to selecting the best tactical knife to cut up the pigeon you just captured in the park with you bare hands. Just the essentials.

Noted crazy person Tim Ferriss is back with another book in his bullshitty titled series "The 4-Hour ______." This time it says "chef" on the cover but is really, like all his books, about name dropping and bragging about his sex life. There's also a section on memorizing playing cards, killing squirrels, getting dogs to hump you, throwing up ice cream, and oh yeah, a bit on cooking. If you want to fake your way through any of that stuff, this is a book you could read but still shouldn't.

Just like we did last time, we're going to try out a couple of Timothy's ideas on our blog Body By Bullshit. We'll be

[1] Eating at five restaurants in a single day.

[2] Making cigar-infused hot chocolate.

[3] Making balsamic pearls with agar agar.

[4] Eating eggs in the style of various countries and then making up facts about those countries.


[bonus] Trying to capture a pigeon with our hands.

Read along and make sure to pre-order Gabi's book about pizza dough. It looks awesome.
