    I recently stumbled across a slashdot article pointing me to this wonderful website

    http://www.cookingforengineers.com

    This guy is an engineer, who cooks in his spare time as a major hobby
    he found standard cook books to be a little poorly formatted when portraying recipes, and he has devised his own method which for me is most logical and appealing

    and some of his recipies are superb

    i emplore anyone who enjoys cooking to check it out
    a top site, well worth a visit.

    his format for displaying recipies is magnificent
    i can view at a glance how long it will take, what tasks will need to be performed, what ingredients i will need, etc, its brillian :)

    must try some of his ideas soon :P

    I really like the order table thing he has there.
    That really helps, better than just reading it in linear format.
    The recipes look interesting also.

    Hmm just one problem.Well put it this way, I can rustle up a cracking pot noodle, if anyones interested :oops: :cry: :oops:

    Top link Ryan. I especially like the ingredients directory, shows you a pic of the ingredient which is very helpful for novice cooks like myself..... ready meals have a lot to answer for :(

    I have a book called cooking for blokes, It starts with the basics like boiling an egg... comes in very handy :)

    only we had to do it in a paper bag!
