If I ever taught programming, I would set aside an entire class for making risotto.

It would be proof that there are just some things computers can't do. That all your fancy code-fu won't save you from standing in from of the stove stirring, for at least a half an hour. And that's okay. Ed mentioned that few, if any, labs would be equipped for this sort of thing what with them being full of computers and all. This led to some very silly images of people making virtual risotto and "stirring" their mice for twenty or thirty minutes.
