1. Kimball recalls passing dead camels — and being taken prisoner after speeding through a Congolese Army roadblock. “It was at night, and they had put us in a little hut,” Kimball recalls, “and the guy in charge wasn’t there, and the No. 2 guy wanted to kill us.” After the scare, the students needed to unwind. “There were Pygmies in this village,” Kimball recalled. “They were sitting on huge truck tires. I remember one night, we sat around a campfire and we got them high. We took out this huge joint, and everyone smoked dope and got high with a bunch of Pygmies in the Congo.” As someone who swears by Christopher Kimball’s Cook’s Illustrated (one Christmas I prepared an entire family dinner by their recipes to legendary success), can’t recommend this profile enough.
