"Mother of God" — David Ambrose

I'm halfway through his 2013 thriller; just stopped for a sec to order his other six novels.

It's that good.

AI, robots, a serial killer who's a computer wizard, combined into a beautifully written, coherent narrative.

What's not to like?

Eggs boiled for 30-second intervals from 0 to 12 minutes

Self-characterized nerd chef J. Kenji López-Alt gives a lesson.

Today he's opening a big-time sausage hall in downtown San Mateo, California.

Below, the menu.

His history includes a stint in Cook's Illustrated's test kitchen, a perfect proving ground for would-be geek cooks.

I recall (I think I recall it; it could be discovered rather than recovered memory — but I digress) reading his pieces in the magazine and marveling at their borderline insanity and obsessiveness.

I'm a huge fan of the borderline insane and obsessive, in case you hadn't noticed....

I see you smiling there, south of Atlanta....

heh
