January 22, 2013   #1118   Epicurious Cookbook

Quite often when Al and Jerry are researching a topic for Radio Kitchen, they go online and head for Epicurious, the venerable recipe data base that has been serving the public since 1995.   As an online service, Epicurious has resisted doing anything non-digital, until now.   But due to popular demand, they have decided to do an Old School publication, "The Epicurious Cookbook."

First of all, Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to all our loyal listeners out there.   It's a great time to be cooking.   And let's say you get a phone call from friends who are throwing an impromptu party, and you want to whip up something really good, really fast to take along.   As it happens, we have just the thing!   They don't call it Quick Bread for nothin', and Jerry is a devotee of this rapid fire form of baking.

Last week we focused on some of the amazing birds that are available for cooking these days.   From the prosaic to the downright exotic, they all are great candidates for the holiday table.   Jerry and Al obtained four birds from Eberly Poultry Farm (courtesy of Friends and Farms CSA), and they went to town cooking them up.
