Dave's back for Cooking Issues and he's joined by friend of the show Chris Young of Chef'sSteps.com. Chris also helped put together the Modernist Cuisine cookbooks, and joins the program to help answer listener questions and give some insight and perspective into his work at both Chef's Steps and Modernist Cuisine. From food safety regulations to use of calcium chloride - tune in for a rapid exploration into Cooking Issues - both complicated and simple! This program was brought to you by Whole Foods Market.
"Any food safety organization in the world's job is not to figure out the minimum possible thing that's safe - their job is to provide bullet proof guidelines so nobody can mess up. THUS all of the rules are always overkill, 100% of the time." [10:00]
