Took a little visit to the general topics board at chowhound recently to check on a thread that Bourdain had started that had peaked my interest (re:Vatel) and found a post that was addressed for him. 26 minutes later, the administrator answered the post for Bourdain, with the explanation that Bourdain didn't have time to answer that type of question, and gave his own reply. The fact that that doesn't happen here (and I don't believe that it ever would) is the reason that this site is the first place I visit when I log on and the last place I visit before I log off. Many thanks to Nicko for providing a place where everyone's opinions and questions are allowed to be heard and welcomed; from the home cook to the long-time professionals!!!!
