Excerpts:
 
"As a restaurant critic, I have extensive experience with leftovers. My refrigerator shelves often groan with odds and ends of dizzying variety. I've grown so accomplished at reheating them that sometimes I even manage to outdo the original meal. I'll never be a great chef, but I'm one heckuva rewarmer. The following are my secrets."
 
----
 
"Most people reheat leftovers with one of two goals in mind: to recreate the meal as faithfully as possible, or else to quickly and easily grind out something marginally edible. I'd like to describe a radical third way, inspired by modern techniques in digital music technology."
 
----
 
"Don't try to recreate last night's dinner: Opt for brilliant creation over insipid recreation. No matter what, you're NOT going to reexperience last night's meal (soups and sauces, which reheat like a dream, are the exceptions). You cannot reverse entropy; you can only use it to your own advantage."
