Roger Ebert, the sage of Twitter – a critic whose reviews are often more entertaining than the films – cancer survivor and all around interesting dude has written a cook book.

AP’s Caryn Rousseau writes:

The idea for his book came after a 2008 blog post he wrote about rice cookers prompted hundreds of comments, with many readers including their favorite recipes. “I think I was somewhat frustrated by not being able to eat and I wanted to live vicariously,” the 68-year-old said during an interview at his Chicago home, his laptop computer speaking his typed answers.

The book includes many of those comments, as well as more than two dozen recipes for dishes such as chili, risotto, jambalaya and oatmeal — Ebert’s favorite. He took a witty and funny tone when writing it; he says he didn’t want it to sound too specialized or difficult.

He’s so cool.

Here’s the pre-order on Amazon.
