This week on Cooking Issues, Dave takes issue with Nastassia’s distaste for coffee and, to a lesser extent, hipsters as she heads off to Seattle after the show. He takes listener calls on Memorial Day BBQ advice, pressure cooker recipes, and tips for beet terrine. Find out what Charlie Trotter’s is like in it’s final months as a restaurant and find out why home curing ham isn’t always the best move. This program was sponsored by S. Wallace Edwards & Sons.

“A great thing to make with pressure cookers is stocks and soups. Something to remember is that pressure cooking drastically mutes flavors like onions. The trick with pressure cookers is to use a minimal amount of liquid.”

“Please don’t mess with your microwaves. That said, I’ve done it plenty of times.”
