I found this because I was reading the comments on a HABO thread over at SBTB. The book being searched for had been completely forgotten, except that the hero got all atwitter over the heroine's pot roast and realized he was in love with her. The comments are _insane_. There are posters claiming to be from Britain who seem to think that pot roast is an American term for something, when it's not.
It's not like Delia Smith is someone unknown in British cookery, anyway.
There are also commenters making fun of people for cooking pot roast on the stove. Which is asinine, because I know of at least two different ways to cook a pot roast on the stove (one involving a dutch oven, and the whole process on stove top; the other involving searing the roast on the stove, and then cooking it in the oven or a slow cooker) -- and I loathe pot roast.
I've been wanting to buy a cookbook and not been excited about anything in particular. After the last few minutes, I'm thinking I might just read wikipedia articles for a while. I just found out what a jugged hare was! :-)
Okay, maybe I shouldn't be excited about that.
