  8. actually the advent of sousvide cooking closely mirrors the timeline of space exploration i dont think space age connotes anything other than timing but these are hairsplitting there is one good reason to support "advanced" techniques with bad results, it can contribute to the learning curve THERE Is NO REASON TO SUPPORT "traditional" cooking with bad results Space age techniques? Sous vide is nothing more than braising in a small, enclosed vessel... Yes it's a handy cooking technique, but it is nothing more than the evolution of old techniques, made more convenient. Cooking over a campfi

  11. imho, wd-50 does not need any propping after adam platt picked it as among the best in new york this is actual testimony to the acceptance of this style of cooking (and dining)
  12. with regards to willpowder pricing please enquire as to willpowder bulk pricing with loose quantities over 1# we have excellent pricing, i hope competitive as you can imagine, small quantities are quite inefficient, which is why we are the only people to do it as a courtesy to the industry
  13. actually i did understand the point about economics of chicago with regards to opening the restaurant (just not to its thriving) unless you mean that the restaurant can stay open long enough to become popular i do think that wd-50 is far more progressive than alinea or moto just fewer high tech toys

  15. it would be easier to equip all small restaurants with a fat detector that way if anybody walks in, an alarm goes off, and you serve at your own risk or perhaps we could ban the sale of trans fats i envision a cocaine like blackmarket emerging, but who has time to go all the way uptown for a case of fat? maybe if you prepared transfats sous vide you could get a go directly to jail card

    bryan the only way to work your way into creativity and production schedules is hyperorganization i would seriously suggest a vacuum sealer (though i think you already have one) and an inexpensive chest freezer (129-199 from pc richard etc) if you structure your production over a five day cycle, you should have enough time to both verify your recipes, and batch up accordingly. focus on staples that can accomodate "any" diet e.g. vegetable purees, doughs, creams, reductions. please feel free to contact me re org/ with regards to lab vs. creativity vs. service you are not a laboratory, you are

    one of the benefits of the university environment is the vast network of formed communities my suggestion would be to target "groups" within the university (greek system, faculty, student body, athletic department) and market as a team building experience you would definitely have some takers in the public policy and leadership department; even more if you could link to a social good/public works project critics are like eunuchs they write because they cannot do paul bocuse

  20. by the way i love msg or as we call it fairy dust
  21. looking forward to hearing the outcome i received numerous checks in the mail assurances and frankly didnt have the time to pursue further i spoke with paul before he went, and was unaware that they continued i take it that they will not be continuing frankly a shame because it was a great event with interesting contacts in montreal go figure, i didnt think chefs made enough to be targets
  22. i think that it would be shortsighted to say that new york is not at the forefront; even though it is relatively conservative town when it comes to eating; imho this is because new york restaurant scene was developed early when fine dining in us meant french; wealthy people still make this association with luxury. i dont think that any other american city developed as deep a luxury restaurant scene as early as new york basically because they couldnt afford to. further, the argument that two restaurants in one city that is not new york means the death of "hypermodern" in nyc are a bit exaggerat
