Sous Vide Or Not Sous Vide: Is That Even A Question?

As a South Floridian, subject to such hot and humid air that I have started growing gills on the side of my neck so I can breathe out of doors during the summer, I have been advocating for the canonization of Willis Carrier, the individual responsible for inventing modern-day air conditioning.  I don’t know if […]

Overeating Our Way to Starvation

Fact:  The quantity of food that qualifies as a meal these days is considerably larger than what it used to be even a mere 20 years ago.  Food consumption is on the rise, and yet for all that, the population is starving itself, accounting for the tremendous rise in obesity.  It all sounds self-contradictory, a […]
