Quirk Takes on Pasta

Those wonderful folks who invented the classic/vampire/zombie mashups have turned their attention to pasta. The result, The Geometry of Pasta was featured on NPR‘s All Things Considered last night and rose to #106 on Amazon’s sales rankings (from a lowly #8,529 yesterday).

One of my favorite travel memories is wandering the aisles of a grocery store in Florence with an Italian speaker who translated the evocative names for me (‘priest strangler,” “bridegrooms, “larks tongues”). Turns out they are not just quixotic; there’s a reason for those shapes.

And, of course, there is an addictive book trailer.
