This week on Cooking Issues, Dave addresses the growing concern over Nastassia’s lack of on-air time and Nastassia responds with…well, a little bit more on-air time than usual! Dave finished last week’s question on egg substitutes, and also ponders what pigs milk might taste like. He also explores rice cooking techniques, coffee extraction and nixtamalization. Tune in and find out why in the world Dave wants to become a Mexican grandmother one day! This episode was sponsored by Tekserve & The Lower East Side Ecology Center’s “E-Waste Events”.
