Fearless Foodie:

Kodak Historical Cookbook, a Good Read

It's not often I steal a march on intrepid Metro Pulse Secret History writer Jack Neely, but I had the pleasant experience last week of his commenting on my newest column, When Cooks Write--The Kodak Historical Cookbook is a Great Read. In it, I opine that the latest effort from the Friends of the Kodak Branch Library is nice reading material with solo meals. Turns out, Jack says he reads cookbooks while he eats, too, and has just the tiniest bit of overlap material in some of his planned writing.  Two fascinating comments made: Jack told me he occasionally entertains himself by trying to guess recipe ingredients  based solely on the name, and that he (gasp!), does not like SpaghettiOs, which he spelled Spaghetti-Os, and who knows, he might be right. Not to spoil your fun if you haven't read it yet, but I did confess that cold SpaghettiOs are a fall back food for moi. Jack, in contrast, tried them in 1967 and is still trying to get the taste out of his mouth. Who knew? I bet the folks at the library love Jack's books.
