"The McRib was, at least in part, born out of the brute force that McDonald’s is capable of exerting on commodities markets. According to this history of the sandwich, Chef Arend created the McRib because McDonald’s simply could not find enough chickens to turn into the McNuggets for which their franchises were clamoring. Chef Arend invented something so popular that his employer could not even find the raw materials to produce it, because it was so popular. “There wasn’t a system to supply enough chicken,” he told Maxim. Well, Chef Arend had recently been to the Carolinas, and was so inspired by the pulled pork barbecue in the Low Country that he decided to create a pork sandwich for McDonald’s to placate the frustrated franchisees."

maybe this is old news to everyone else but new to me . . .
no-soak oven cooked beans! reminds me of the thrill of the no-knead bread from years past. made garbanzos tonight, tasted far better than canned or any I have made using the regular method.

Moving the LDM recommendation thread here so as not to diminish the other thread. Man, it's amazing what happens when you break through the $20 barrier. Too bad I can't do it more often. I guess what Skinny said originally is probably true: they are all great. But tonight tried "KO - In Côt We Trust" from Thierry Puzelat and Pierrot Bonhomme. Damn!
