SCast 003| Sourdough Baguettes, Double Hydration, Soy Lecithin

This one's for the bread heads! We talk sourdough baguettes and why you need to bake at a higher temperature than traditional breads, and I give Tmorrision feedback on his sourdough boule. I answer a question on double hydration sourdoughs, and how soy lecithin can be used to enhance your breads that contain fat. We finish the conversation troubleshooting large holes in the interior crumb of a bread.

SCast 002| Pink Salt in Brines, Tyndallization, Duck Confit

In this episode we talk about using sodium nitrite when brining pork for added flavor and color retention, and how the addition of baking soda can lead to more tenderness. We also talk about "tyndallization" and if that concept can allow you to sterilize meats for long term storage using sous vide. Then we finish this episode with a quick question about fats turning rancid after being used for confit, and get an update from Mack-The-Knife on his Halloween dinner preparation, talking about pumpkin pie and cheese cake.

SCast 001| Pork Stew, Infused Oils, Mother Sauces and Eggs

In this episode we jump on Mack-The-Knife's Halloween inspired dinner, talking about braised pork stew with apples. We also talk infused oils and how they can be incorporated into various dishes, sauces, & emulsions; I answer PagenBear's question on how to best practice the Five French Mother Sauces, and we finish the episode talking scrambled eggs and omelettes.
