And, just as Jesse Hughey and I learned last time we stopped off at The Grill at Reno's, the folks in LA were delighted to find out that Vinnie Paul plans on releasing a cookbook at some point this year. Called Drumming up an Appetite with Vinnie Paul, Abbott tells the LA Weekly that the book will center mostly around foods of a spicy variety. Or so our sister paper assumes, given the fact that Abbott almost exclusively discussed jalapenos, habaneros and fajitas when the topic was breached. If nothing else, Abbott, clearly the Martha Stewart of the metal set, likes what those foods bring to the table:
"When I have parties, I have little sandwiches. I always make sure I have two or three fresh habaneros and I only put them on one or two. There's always someone who comes running around the corner, 'Oh my god! I don't know what was in those, but my mouth is on fire! What do I do?!'Someone get this guy a show on Food Network already.
"It's fucking awesome. Somebody always gets one, but nobody knows who."
