Cooking For Engineers

Heard about this cool cooking site today: Cooking For Engineers, run by a guy named Michael Chu. It's pretty standard cooking site fare: recipes, ingredient info, kitchen tips, etc., but the cool thing is that it's aimed at the more analytical types.

Of particular interest is Chu's "tabular recipe notation" which combines the ingredients AND the steps all in one easy-to-read notation that has to be seen to be appreciated. (You can see an example at the bottom of his Halloween Green Slime Spinach Dip recipe. A chef after my own heart.) He's apparently trying to get a patent on this recipe notation, but it's cool, useful, and innovative enough that I won't begrudge him getting it.
