Do you feel like cooking is a mysterious art, a literally messy process (all those creams! all those stains! sauces slathered all over everything!) that's world's apart from the clean, comforting world of computer code or electronic wiring? Well, maybe you've just got the wrong attitude. Michael Chu's invaluable Cooking for Engineers site breaks recipes and food planning down in language a geek can understand.
Of course, not all geeks have felt that cooking represented a challenge. If you were on Usenet in the heady pre-Web days, you almost certainly encountered this legendary turkey recipe. You'll enjoy Thanksgiving dinner and enjoy nostalgia of the days of when you surfed newsgroups via your BBS.
