    Got champagne taste and a beer budget? Here's the cookbook for you. A great meal doesn't have to cost an arm and a leg. For the cost of burgers out, you can dine on Filet Mignon at home.

    Woodrow Wilson is a Caltech PhD chemist who learned to cook in self-defense. He could live the life of a starving student as long as he didn't have to taste it. Spoiled by years of his mother's home cooking he'd have to do better. Besides, his roommates wouldn't tolerate mediocre cooking. Dinner might not cost much, but it had better not taste like it didn't.

    Wilson brings his creativity from the laboratory into the kitchen. Toying with recipes-adjusting ingredients to improve the taste or substituting ingredients for whatever he's out of-he presents new takes on old favorites. Cooking by the seat of his pants, and then reverse engineering the ones that turn out well, he produces some mouthwatering new taste sensations. His best results are presented in the pages that follow.

    Wilson is a research scientist, an author, a Toastmaster, a husband, a father, and a grandfather. Visit his web site to learn more about him. As a special bonus, you'll discover new recipes posted there every month or so.
