On a “holiday” themed episode of Cooking Issues, Dave rides solo as Nastassia is in the comforts of Southern California. Nastassia does join by phone while Dave answers some interesting questions from listeners. Tune in to find out how short ribs are affected when prepared using low temperature cooking techniques, how to make homemade fizzing tables, why hot ice cream never really works out and how to best prepare a Christmas goose.
