This week on Cooking Issues, Dave Arnold is joined by Douglas Baldwin, author of Sous Vide for the Home Cook to discuss death curves, low-temp safety, and his ChefSteps sous vide class. Later on they discuss the ethics of food safety procedures and the risks of eating. Dave also takes listener questions on injection turkey brining and the science behind the infamous fried turkey explosion. After the break Dave goes into detail on grinders of all types and his thoughts on the Fireball whiskey recall. This program was brought to you by Cain Vineyard & Winery.


"If you're going to try something new and experimental for Thanksgiving, test it first" [13:00]

"Cooking is relatively unsafe unless its very well controlled. This is why people get food poisoning all the time. As a whole, low temp cooking is vastly more controlled than traditional home cooking and therefore more safe." [19:00]

"The average sprout is an abomination!" [25:00]
