Slow Food Is Good Food

Posted on April 23, 2008 at 3:08pm 0 Comments

So apparently slow food has nothing to do with crockpots. My bad. I know people that insist on cooking everything on low heat for hours (green bean mush, anyone?), but the slow food movement has nothing to do with that, either!



According to a slow food article on Chef2Chef (my site) the ideals of slow food are:

  • Food should taste good and eating should be a pleasurable…

Top Chef: Battle of the Sexes

Posted on April 17, 2008 at 9:33am 3 Comments

You can see it right? The Top Chef producers have set viewers up for a battle of the sexes.



During last week's show, the producers broke up the lovable lesbian couple Jennifer and Zoi (Zofer tees coming soon!), and concluded with a fight scene that would've made Soprano's producers proud. Spike, who earlier in the episode remarked… Continue

Butter Me Up!

Posted on April 15, 2008 at 3:58pm 2 Comments

Skippy vs. Jif? That debate is SOOOO o-vah! Why would anyone settle for a plain old PB&J when you could have a Peanut Butter with European Mocha on a warm baguette?

As a child, I used to gaze longingly at my friends who got Jif and grape jelly on Wonder Bread. My enviro-hippie mama made sure that I had all-natural, organic peanut butter and no-sugar preserves on…

Well, no. I have a cat. We has a silver tone German Shepherd when I was a kid--he was a great dog. My sister used to breed Rhodesian Ridgebacks and I spent a lot of time at the dog shows with her--for someone who doesn't have dogs, I know my breeds!

TED TALKS VIDEO

TED: James Patten: The best computer interface? Maybe ... your hands - James Patten (2013)

"The computer is an incredibly powerful means of creative expression," says designer and TED Fellow James Patten. But right now, we interact with computers, mainly, by typing and tapping. In this nifty talk and demo, Patten imagines a more visceral, physical way to bring your thoughts and ideas to life in the digital world, taking the computer interface off the screen and putting it into your hands.

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?
