Film critic Roger Ebert not only has good taste when it comes to movies, but he's got talent in the kitchen as well.

Ebert debuted his new cookbook, The Pot and How to Use It, at Borders Friday afternoon.

Ebert said he became an expert rice cooker many years ago when he lost weight before his illness. He said that being in good condition was a big factor in helping him survive his medical issues.

Even though he can no longer eat, he still cooks for his wife, Chaz, and praises the "mystery and romance" of his beloved pot.
