Why Mike? Why Mitch?
“Damn Good Food“. First edition, 2009. Ann Bauer. And, of course, Mitch Omer. The book that launched a thousand jars of peanut butter. A cookbook that compels you to read it from cover to cover. It’s one year later. You may think Hell’s Kitchen is about Gordon Ramsey, but the real one is here in Minnesota and beneath it all is Mitch – and no one can touch him.
Government IT drone by day, wannabe chef at night. Too old for more children, too young for retirement, and too bitter for anything else, Mike Donnelly was looking for a challenge. And in the Mike/Mitch project he found it. Risking his marriage, his job, and his bank account’s well-being, he has signed on for a deranged assignment.
365 days. 157 recipes. One geek and a not so crappy midwestern kitchen.
How far will it go? We can only wait. And wait. And wait…..
The Mike/Mitch Project. Coming soon to a computer terminal near you.
[NOTE:This makes a lot more sense and is even slightly funny if you are familiar with the movie Julie & Julia and the blog that inspired it.]
[YES, ANOTHER NOTE:This blog entry in particular is better if you’ve read the first entry on The Julie/Julia Project]
