Foreword by Alton Brown. The Laws of Cooking . . . and How to Break Them encourages improvisation and play, while explaining Justin Warner's unique ideas about "flavor theory"-like color theory, but for your tongue. By introducing eleven laws based on familiar foods (e.g., "The Law of Peanut Butter and Jelly"; "The Law of Coffee, Cream, and Sugar"), the book will teach you why certain flavors combine brilliantly, and then show how these combinations work in 110 more complex and inventive recipes (Tomato Soup with "Grilled Cheese" Ravioli; Scallops with Black Sesame and Cherry). At the end of every recipe, Justin "breaks the law" by adding a seemingly discordant flavor that takes the combination to a new level.
The re-election campaign of Nevada Senator and former UNLV football star Wayne "Wall of Pain" Kight has hit some serious snags. His wife and campaign manager have been caught in a dalliance in the campaign bus, which his opponent, retired wrestler General Mayhem, mocks along with Kight's attempt to save Nevada from a planned toxic waste dump. His poll numbers are slipping and life as he knows it is coming to an end; can accepting Mayhem's challenge of an election-eve wrestling match at Caesar's Palace save him? With the public clamoring for full contact, legislator-on-legislator wrestling action, winning re-election may cost him not only a few bumps and bruises, but also his relationship with his daughter and his dignity.--back cover.
