COOKING WITH MARILYN MICHAELS & MARK WILK'S
|How Not To Cook|
Marilyn Michaels and Mark Wilk’s new book, How Not to Cook, for the Rest of Your Life, is the first ANTI-cookbook. Equals parts biography, self-help, and scrimp-n’-save philosophy, this laugh-out-loud rant, served up by America’s premier comedienne/impressionist, is a no holds barred empowerment-driven read covering such topics as:
I don’t wanna hear the words: “It’s just a little turbulence.” Years ago on a flight to Vegas we started to nose dive, and everyone began to scream and cry out for “Mama!”… which is something I do without losing altitude…just like I don’t forget the pain of childbirth. I remember every contraction. Whenever I had one, I would tell myself, “Stupid, remember this.”
I don’t believe women should raise their children by themselves. It’s the real reason mothers set their babies afloat in a basket on the Nile. How do you think Moses started out?...an over extended mother!
When my publicist begged me to go out with a young thespian named James Caan, I kept thinking about the kind of dishes he would expect of me; Italian? Because he played an Italian… Jewish? Because he probably was brought up on it? Or Chinese, because Jews like to eat that on Sundays. Nah, I wasn’t interested. That’s right. I gave up a date with Sonny Corleone!
Hef came out to greet me in silk PJ’s—he was very friendly, unassuming and a bit childlike. The place was overrun with celebrities and beautiful women. There was no use wondering if you measured up...you didn’t. Everyone was a 10. I mean, in the days before I had a baby, I looked pretty good, but it was like the old line: “Did you ever feel that the whole world was a tuxedo, and you were a pair of brown shoes?”
This humorous tutorial also comes with anecdotes about:
Princess Margaret Rose
Ivana Trump, and dozens more—
The Audio version of How Not to Cook… will include upwards of 50 voice characters...coming this fall..
