The Typing Chef

New cookbooks are OK, but there's no beating a vintage recipe collection. The best thing I inherited from my step-grandpa was an Italian cookbook that dated to before I was born, before Weight Watchers and PETA ruined everthing. There is--no shit--a recipe for whale steak, and a "Light Meals" section that includes recipes for deep-fried veggies and prosciutto sandwiches. But if you can't find an old cookbook, Jack Bishop discusses and signs Cook's Illustrated Country Cookbook and The America's Test Kitchen Family Baking Book at 7 p.m. Tuesday at Barnes and Noble, 7700 W. Northwest Highway. Call 214-739-1124.
