Well, I am glad you liked the cheesecake, it seems to be his signature one, the key lime Cheesecake. Actually the combination sounds very good. I would certainly try it.
As far as the cookbook, I think Myra Chanin wrote it as she is a food critic and a noted cookbook author. She is also a long time friend of Joey Reynolds and produces his late night radio show. If you listen to Joey, he is a functional illiterate and I think incapable of writing even a simple declarative sentence, let alone a cookbook.
You are right, Joey does 5 hours a night on WOR and is syndicated in hundreds of other markets nation wide. Then again all he competes with is a guy talking about little green men from Mars. He does have interesting guests, but he never lets them talk. Although he admits he is a recovering alcoholic, he is still the guy with the lamp shade on his head, endlessly annoying people way beyond last call.
The cheesecake may be good, but the radio program is the pits. The only reason I listen is my wife likes it for some unknown reason and I love my wife more than I detest Joey.
Still looking for more comments.
