comment Chinese Hoppin' John
A friend suggested mung beans. I'm also considering smoked or BBQ duck as the meat, but still leaning toward the BBQ pork.

comment Is it safe to leave butter at room temperature?
I just don't understand all of the excitement over the butter crock. I keep butter just like you mention, in a simple closed container, on the counter. I've done this for 30+ years and have very rarely had to toss it.

comment How to bake a chicken?
@Arlen - I don't think so. I've also used a roasting pan without the grill and the result was fine. However, the thing about the large skillet is that after cooking, you remove the chicken, and bring the pan to the stovetop to make a sauce right in the pan.

comment Where can I get local grains in bulk?
Where do you live? Someone from your locale will have to answer. Here in Portland, Oregon there are at least 10 natural food stores that carry a wide assortment of bulk grains.

comment Is it safe to eat Raw Corn?
Fresh corn is delicious (and safe as any raw produce) as long as it's not #2 field corn. #2 field corn tastes like cardboard and is grown for animal feed and chemical products such as HFCS.

@Martha - I originally bought the book 10 years ago as a "novice". And Brett said that he is already a decent cook. So, I think it fits his question well.
