I am from the west home of big sky's and beef and I only speak one language english. Every time I travel I feel very primitive as most of the people I run into speak more than one language.

I have never run into language problems while visiting the french speaking side of Canada, sometimes it takes a few try's to get the point across but I find as long as I am respectful and remember I should know french life is fine. I would strongly recommend a visit to Montreal.

One of the rewards of visiting is amazing food - from simple smoked meat at Schwartz's Deli

To one of Canada's original wild man chefs

Martin Picard

and his restaurant Au Pied De Cochon

I hope to visit his Sugar Shack some day and see how he handles Maple syrup. He changes is menu up winter and summer and while I would not call it a healthy place to eat the wonderful seafood in season can not be too far off the mark.

Hello Mike and Artur,

Welcome to Montreal. It's hard to give you recommendation without knowing what you're looking for exactly.

It can simply be a visit to Fairmount Beagle

The chicken sandwich at Cocorico just beside Schartz

Or a full 10 services meal at Laurie Raphael or Toque

I can recommend you the best coffee, one of David Chang's favorite restaurant or great ethnic food. I could probably go on for hours. Tell us what you're looking for and I'll try to recommend something!

Have a good weekend

Unfortunately I don't know any restaurant that go all-out modernist like WD50 or Alinea. The most modernist menu I had was a few years ago at Laurie Raphael Montreal where I could see direct influence from El Bulli and Celler Can Roca on the menu but their menu seem more traditional now. I would be happy to hear about other places in Montreal that I don't know.

      I was reminded the other day of the egg-in-plastic-wrap-poach method.

      GE is entering the SV field in an innovative way. They are doing a crowdfunding approach through one of their Innovation technology centers. The device itself is also innovative in that it uses a Inductive cooktop for the heating element with a wireless temperature sensor. It's also unique in that it does not include any type of water circulation.
       
      Here's a link to the crowdfunding site: https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/paragon-induction-cooktop/
       
      What does everybody think about this entry into the field? If nothing else it certainly shows that SV has gotten the attention of major appliance makers. A few weeks ago GE also announced that one of their new lines of stoves will have the same type of temperature control as this device uses so you can do SV on your stovetop.

      I made the Creme Anglaise recipe from Myhrvold Modernist Cuisine - it did look curdled and lumpy coming out of the zip lock bag as described in the recipe.
       
      I used my stick blender to smooth it out as instructed, but I think I blended it for too long, and it went from lumpy to smooth to watery. Did I make a fatal mistake of over blending the custard?
       
      The recipe does not say how to blend or when to stop.
       
      Hoping one of the gurus can give me guidance before I try this again.
       
      Many Thanks

      Has anyone used Valrhona Absolut Crystal neutral glaze particularly to thicken a coulis or to glaze a tart?  If so, how did you like it and is there another glaze you think worked as well but is less expensive or can be purchased in smaller quantities?

      Hello.
      I would like to buy some pectinex ultra sp-l.
      However I am worried about the temperature during the shipping time.
      I read that the storage temperature should be between 2 and 8 C. It works best from 15 to 50 C, and if it stays a lot of time in 25 C, it will gradually be deactivated.
       
      It needs a week to come here (Greece), then will it affect its abilities?
       
      Do you know if I can find a document somewhere that explains the gradual loss of power as a function of time and temperature?
      Did you have any experience with pectinex not working well due to bad storage?
       
      Thanks.
