Thank you Jim and Nicko for this amazing opportunity to converse with one of the most important figures in food. Mr. McGee over the years I have had countless questions that you answered for me, there were however a couple times when it would have been much easier if I could have talked with you! So now those particular questions are in the past so I am racking my brain to try and remember some of those issues. The dog eared pages are giving me some indications, but I'll just start fresh. Your books contain an absolutely amazing depth and breadth of information. How long did it take you to prepare and or learn the information here? You have a BS from CIT and a Doctorate in English Literature. I can see where the writing part would come in, but what did you get your BS in? It seems an interesting combination that I wouldn't have bet would produce these tomes. Thank you again for your time.
