This week Dave and Nastassia cover so many listener questions:

DAIRY (almost): A listener asks about Vegan Creamer and Dave somehow ends up talking about grain silo explosions.

DAIRY (actual): Dave puts out a request for Pig milk Cheese and shares how to make Steamed Cheeseburgers at home.

VEGETABLES: Mostly discussed for their use as musical instruments a la  Vienna's Vegetable Orchestra and Pupsi's Smash Mouth Cover.

MEAT: A listener conducts a study re: whether you should add butter to the sous-vide bag, and shares their results.  Plus today's Classic in the Field:  The Art of Carving by the editors of House and Garden (1959).
