I read recipes the same way I read science fiction. I get to the end and I think, "Well, that's not going to happen."
"Revolving" self portrait by Felix Nadar, circa 1865.
Felix Nadar was the pseudonym of Gaspard-Felix Tournachon, a French photographer, novelist and balloonist who pioneered the use of artificial lighting in photograpy.
He also founded "The Society for the Encouragement of Aerial Locomotion by Means of Heavier than Air Machines," nominating himself president and his good friend Jules Verne as secretary.
