Are Bremmer's Pies Improvised Exploding Devices?
The Food section of the WaPo, usually home to dozens of recipes for zucchini and items on where to buy adorable kitchen magnets, contains a truly revelatory story today, disclosing the serious chef side of Iraq reconstruction czar L. Paul Bremer. He is classically trained, having studied at L'Academie de Cuisine and under Henri-Etienne Levy. He tells the post that a La Cornue range in his Vermont home "was an important part of my sanity" while in Baghdad and that he kept a picture of it on his computer desktop. The man could not wait to get home to his stove. Relationship with Mrs. Bremer apparently not so hot.
