Book 27 of 52 -- Heat by Bill Buford
Lori told me to read this and let me borrow her copy and I set it aside until I finished another book.
Once I started reading it, I could not put it down!
If I was not particularly interested in whether pasta had an egg in it, I sucked up every word Buford wrote on the subject because he made the participants real -- people who I now know (and who I may think are ridiculous.)
When you read about some minor event such as him burning himself on the stove top, you are totally fascinated because you KNOW the cook who is standing next to him and taunting him.
