Calling all algorithmic cooks

Too late for this holiday season, but check out Stephen Miller's nicely humorous cookbook that only geeks, nerds, and, yes, robots could love: the C Food system

My only complaint, surely those recipes (e.g. the "amaizing" cornbread) could be parallelized. I mean, what's an algorithmic chef supposed to do while Oven.PreHeat(450)?

Oven.PreHeat spawns a new thread and notifies upon completion, thereby freeing the processor for other tasks. It is up to the compiler the determine what other processes will be attempted in parallel.
