This week, A&M welcome special guest Adam Roberts, otherwise known as The Amateur Gourmet, and put him to work making kaykay's Absurdly Addictive Asparagus. Still feeling bruised from his recipe being overlooked for our Best Brunch Eggs contest back in September, Adam grills A&M on their finalist selection process. In turn, they quiz him on why he's called The Amateur Gourmet and how he went from law student to food blogger (from torts to tarts, as reviews for his book have cleverly assessed).

In addition, brunoise is defined (for people who aren't as obsessive as Merrill), Adam shows off his pan-flipping skills, and Amanda talks about the less-than-glamorous trappings of her old gig at the New York Times.  

You can see more of the delightful Adam Roberts at www.amateurgourmet.com, on Twitter @amateurgourmet and in his book The Amateur Gourmet.
