Is that a Lard Russian Lanie Bayless is sipping? I sure hope not, because she's only sixteen! But is she a hottie? I'll ask my underage readers to weigh in, because it wouldn't be appropriate for this married old man to comment.
Lanie's the co-author of a cookbook titled Rick and Lanie's Excellent Kitchen Adventures (be excellent to each other) which was nominated for a James Beard Award. There's loads of good LARD recipes there, I've heard, though I've yet to pick up the book.
I know what you're asking - who the fuck is James Beard? Well, porklovers, James Beard is the father of American gastonomy. Bet you didn't know that! He's like the fucking Rosanjin of the New World.
After graduation, Lanie hopes to attend college in New York City where she will study theater.
Theater? There aren't any good plays with culture-defining pork references. Bloody splitter!
You can read more about Lanie here - at TheOtherWhiteMeat blog. Oh yes, a pork blog. Fun for the whole family.
