Mmmmm, carbs

That’s what the sign above a table loaded with the latest offerings for the cooks or wannabe cooks of the world at the local Chapters.

I picked up one of the books and flipped through…

… glossy pictures
… airbrushed subjects

And it hit me — Cookbooks are the new porn.

Breads & buns, cookies & cakes — they were all memorialized and fetishized in the pages of these little books. I’m surprised they aren’t considered contraband by the Atkins set.
