    I’m pretty sure Cooks Source will clean up some of the atrocious grammatical and spelling errors and probably Mr. Potter will be so ungracious as to not even pay them for their efforts.

    “Leave the chocolate to melt in the port/butter mixture.”

    Dear BB: I love it when you talk dirty.

    Nice recipe, I think I will try this around holiday time. But not being a fan of port, would this work equally well with rum?

    I’m glad to see you have done measurements by weight. You would have completely lost both geek and cooking credibility otherwise. :-)

    I made it tonight in about 10 minutes. It’s a cool recipe because you probably already have this little fun cake waiting to be made in your kitchen. It’s an easy last-minute “Oops I meant to get dessert” recipe that just needs a pot of fruit tea and maybe some raspberries and creme fraiche to make you a star.

    I have a similar reaction when I say I made brownies with pureed beet (to sneak veggies into the kids). People recoil and think I added beef puree to the brownies.

    Am I the only one who thinks “Chocolate Port” sounds like a euphemism for the butt?

    Beware! The book is really “Cooking for Geeks”!

    I meant “Cooking forty Geeks”….way to ruin the joke

    So Harold McGee’s got several highly regarded books in this area (e.g. ). Perhaps someone who’s read both could offer a comparison?
