    Our local library has "Modernist Cuisine at Home". There's a queue for checking it out, but it's a free way to take a look. Worth checking a library near you if you're interested.

    a pressure cooker is now modernist cooking?

    hey, someone have the time to paraphrase the carnitas recipe? i never use my pressure cooker. i even considered turning it into a booze still. hehe.

    i like carnitas more than booze.

    Boom, Its not that PC is new, its just that when its applied with modern techniques, you can really transform foods in a new way. Just be sure that if your cooking in the actual pot, its stanless steel and not alumnium.

    The pressure cooker is defiantly awesome, I make stocks and beans in mine almost weekly.

    I've been using paco's for years. They are decent tools but I find they are over rated. They always need to be fixed too.

    What's up with that?? It Pacojets seem like such a great idea, but it seems that everyone that I talk to that uses them has similar comments: the first half of the sentence is usually about them being very useful. The second half of the sentence notes that they don't work well in professional environments since they are always breaking down.

    I agree the Paco is great, but I would invest in a higher end ice cream machine if i had my time and money back.

    I love using malt vinegar powder on my classic fish & chips, it tastes great and your fish doesn't get soggy like when you douse it with real vinegar. Plus, it really surprises people when they first bite into their fish!
