  1. Why do I irrationally feel I want one if these!

  2. Except I'd be illegal there

  3. I can recommend this

  4. Shocking.
    We now have a law where giving someone a bunch of flowers could get you 7 years for supply of materials that had a psychoactive effect. E.g. it made someone happy.

    And Sylar Majesticoon is not going to like it that Catnip is now technically illegal too.

    Interestingly this leads to a situation were if someone was sold talcum power instead of the cocaine they expected and it made them angry. The person selling it could be done for supply in exactly the same way as if they had supplied cocaine and also done for another charge of fraud!

  5. Part 2 - Well After Dr Leon this looks like the next step http://www.xnnsystems.xyz/#/

    Meat tenderizers

    I did a trial with some stewing steak, one I did nothing with,the other I used the jaccard on then cooked both sous viide at 60C for 4 hours with a small of gorgonzola in each bag, the jaccarded steak was preferable and softer than the non jaccarded steak. Interestingly the small amount, and I mean a smear, of blue cheese really brought out the beef flavor and was eaten even by a guest who will not eat any form of cheese.

    Why would you take the skin off pork belly?

    You can believe a lot of wacky things that are only incidentally about cooking and still be a great cook. Eric Ripert for example, believes that menstruating women can't make mayonnaise without it breaking. Interesting, a friend of mine who is a female head chef, told me she can't make mayonnaise at that time of the month. I'd never heard of Eric Ripert comment before.
  12. I've always followed what my grandmother said, eat a bit of everything and not to much of anything.

    Lobster bisque from frozen lobster

    Yes - The meat in cooked frozen lobsters I've found tends to be a bit mushy or rubbery but the shells are great for lobster bisque. And in that context the meat is not so bad for garnish if sliced.

    Books About Vegetables

    Also The Vegetarian Option by SImon Hopkinson it's not really a vegetarian cook book though as there is a recipe for chicken stock in there, but more dishes to show off vegetables at there best.

    Pressure Cookers: 2011 and beyond

    I don't understand what the problem is, "some of the original air could be trapped inside" makes no difference if the temperature and the pressure is there it's working.
