The is why I love his show. He always does off the wall or just plain unexpected things.

It is sad they have cancelled his show. At least he already has a new one he is heading to. (I think it is actually a game show.)

They didn't force him out or cancel him. It was his decision to leave. He wanted to leave 2 years ago but they gave him a new studio as a bribe to stay. He's already begun filming Celebrity Name Game (which apparently starts September 22 somewhere).

The Late Late Show will continue, with James Cordren as the host (sometime next year). I will miss Craig very much.

As for the topic at hand, it was an awesome surprise to see that book and I bet it has something to do with his recent trip to Japan (which he loved, btw).

As I have a passing interest in the culinary arts, I have to ask: is the Manga Cookbook actually any good apart from its novelty value?

That's interesting. Craig Ferguson,the Scottish-born talk show host is showing a cookbook that's based on anime and manga foods. I wonder if the Japanese have seen this on Youtube yet?

Let me start out by saying first how thrilled we were Craig Ferguson told us that he'd help us get our cookbook onto his show. Since we were already huge fans, having him take a look at our book was a dream come true.

As for the culinary value of the book, well... It's been reviewed favorably by Gourmet Magazine, the San Francisco Chronicle and several other newspapers, and the American Library Association named it a "Top 10 Paperback" for young-adult readers.

The book teaches traditional Japanese home-cooking. The ingredients are easy to obtain, and the recipes are for the most part simple to prepare.

Hope everyone who hasn't seen the book before decides to check it out!

I love this show!!! Everything about it makes me die of laughter! Especially last night when he got a letter from a nine year old and he told her about how he spent his times in Scotland standing next to a Potato instead of going to Summer camp. That was the funniest thing I've heard in the longest time! But the one time I end up going to bed early after his monologues is the one time he actually shows something anime related! Man what rotten luck on my behalf!

For those wondering, it's a good little cookbook with some great, simple recipes in it. A hit in my house is the karaage recipe. Unless I set some aside for myself, it's gone in 20 minutes. Smile

Thanks for the praise, OtakuMommy!

Sometimes in our house (yes, we live in Japan Smile ) we dip the karaage in Thai chili sauce. Makes for a great crossover dish!
