is it a science text or a cookbook?

i don't know...but it is currently my favorite book. am i a dork? yeah, probably. this book is crammed full of things you didn't know someone thought about.

for instance:

"black truffles are relatively subtle and earthy, with a mix of a dozen or so alcohols and aldehydes, and some dimethyl sulfide. (they also contain small amounts of androstenone, a steroid compound also found in men's underarm sweat and secreted in the saliva of the male pig, where it prompts mating behavior in the sow. some people are unable to smell androstenone, while others can and may find it unappetizing.)"
