True to my word, I went to the BOOM Holiday Party at Meltdown Comics yesterday. Luminaries in attendance included writer Kim Krizan, artist Lawrence Snelly and Dave Ehrlich from Chronicle Books. Forrest Black and I spent much of the evening chatting with them about cooking. Larry, Dave, Forrest, and I are all nouveau homemakers, so we all find our newfound abilities in the cooking-a-whole-chicken department most excellent.
BOOM Studios VP of Publishing Wes Harris, who I adore, is more of an old hand in the kitchen. He told me he was considering making salmon in puff pasty for Christmas and, when I asked how one does that, he was like, it is simple, just put it in puff pastry. This is perhaps a less obvious how-to than an experienced cook might think.
Am I writing this while hungry? Maybe. It’s about quittin’ time here and I should stop talking about food and start doing something about it, preparatory to night out on the town. Tis the season.
