I had a wonderful time with all of your last night. I am glad our secret Santa exchange allowed us to get to know each other little more.
After our discussion about Damascus knives, I thought it would be fun to check out Bob Kramer's website. I found a wonderful video and like Doug mentioned he can cut through rope, water bottles, and bolts with his knives. I would definitely take a peak at this video.
I am hoping that we will all love and adore My Life from Scratch. I am sorry about How to Cook a Dragon, but if you are still interested in Chinese cuisine I would highly recommend reading The Last Chinese Chef by Nicole Mones.
