What happens when Nastassia “The Hammer” Lopez is not in studio with Dave? He gets a chance to go on (and on) about espresso techniques and what makes lever machines different (and better) than pump machines. Dave also answers many of your submitted questions including solving issues such as sous vide duck confit, brisket cooking techniques and fried chicken recipes. Tune in for some closure on last week’s chocolate chip cookie question and learn why Dave sometimes questions the claims of food companies (even if they are sponsors of HRN).
