My Quest to Lower Sodium Without Sacrificing Flavor

Working with school districts to improve their lunch programs while reducing sodium and improving taste may seem like "Mission Impossible". But there are important lessons to be learned that may assist other chefs looking to do the same thing with their own dishes. I have introduced various USDA standard recipes, and by working with the schools' Foodservice Directors, we have had great success thus far by substituting Diamond Crystal Kosher salt for standard iodized salt. Even though many of…See More

Ever wonder how sea salt gets from the ocean to your salt cellar?

Did you ever wonder how the sea salt that adds that great crunchy finishing touch to so many of your favorite dishes gets from the ocean to your salt cellar?

Do you have a favorite brining tip or recipe?

According the November issue of Bon Appetit, brining turkey is like a fashion trend—in this year and out the next. If so, that makes me hopelessly non-trendy. I brine my turkeys because I like the results—juicy and flavorful. For me there’s only one answer to BA’s question...Read MoreSee More

TED TALKS VIDEO

TED: Hamish Jolly: A shark-deterrent wetsuit (and it's not what you think) - Hamish Jolly (2013)

Hamish Jolly, an ocean swimmer in Australia, wanted a wetsuit that would deter a curious shark from mistaking him for a potential source of nourishment. (Which, statistically, is rare, but certainly a fate worth avoiding.) Working with a team of scientists, he and his friends came up with a fresh approach — not a shark cage, not a suit of chain-mail, but a sleek suit that taps our growing understanding of shark vision.

TED: Michel Laberge: How synchronized hammer strikes could generate nuclear fusion - Michel Laberge (2014)

Our energy future depends on nuclear fusion, says Michel Laberge. The plasma physicist runs a small company with a big idea for a new type of nuclear reactor that could produce clean, cheap energy. His secret recipe? High speeds, scorching temperatures and crushing pressure. In this hopeful talk, he explains how nuclear fusion might be just around the corner.

TED: Sarah Lewis: Embrace the near win - Sarah Lewis (2014)

At her first museum job, art historian Sarah Lewis noticed something important about an artist she was studying: Not every artwork was a total masterpiece. She asks us to consider the role of the almost-failure, the near win, in our own lives. In our pursuit of success and mastery, is it actually our near wins that push us forward?

TED: Matthew Carter: My life in typefaces - Matthew Carter (2014)

Pick up a book, magazine or screen, and more than likely you'll come across some typography designed by Matthew Carter. In this charming talk, the man behind typefaces such as Verdana, Georgia and Bell Centennial (designed just for phone books -- remember them?), takes us on a spin through a career focused on the very last pixel of each letter of a font.
