(6) Sat Sep 03 2005 23:10 PST Market Research: If I were to write even more about food than I already do, what kind of stuff would y'all be interested in?

To be cliche: Whatever you know...

Well, I'm the kind of guy who likes learning new things so as to be able to write about them. What should I learn?
I'm interested in pretty much any type of food writing you do, but if you really want to be directed by strangers' comments: recipes for room-temperature cooking involving surprising combinations of ingredients.
This sounds a bit arbitrary, but I always enjoy the posts about making food with dramatically substituted ingredients. Perhaps anything that breaks apart the rules and structure of cooking and shows that the structure isn't what it's sometimes perceived as, and that it can still work. (I've only recently stopped thinking of cookery as the compilation of recipe source code - expecting food to be an inedible, inert, black lump of Syntax Error if I get something slightly wrong.)
I'd like more recipe-stories, like panic pasta (I think the recipe-story is a unique form of constrained writing).

I like your recipe stories too.
