You have researched, discovered, and/or wrangled an astonishing amount of knowledge about cooking that has transformed how many of us think about the food we prepare. Of all of that knowledge, what have turned out to be the most contentious claims? Are there any at which most people, to your surprise, still routinely scoff?

I wouldn’t really say that anything has been contentious, because with cooking above all else, the proof of the pudding is in the eating! Or as another post says, cooks are pragmatists. A lot of people, professionals included, still believe and say that searing meat seals in juices, but when they think and talk through what each of them has seen in every piece of meat they’ve seared and served, they change their minds.

(edited to say this is not an attempt to be contentious)

Of course I know this is futile. It just sounds too good.
