addendum to previous post.
not that i really want to pursue this sous vide thing any further, but looks like nyc chefs are getting bitten in the ass by the FDA (what else is new?) for their boil-in-a-bag penchant, thanks to the nytimes (ditto).
also, just got my (and the) very first issue of alimentum in the mail today. this compact volume is jam-packed with gems from the likes of mark world-as-seen-through-a-particular-foodstuff kurlansky, [yours and my favorite neurologist] oliver sacks and clifford a. wright. it’s a beauty. you should subscribe.
