    Hey guys. I know I've been a ghost but I'm in the process of working on opening a quick service Argentine empanada shop in NYC that will most likely be opening in the early spring... I'll be going to Buenos Aires for ten days starting Feb 14th. I found out from a friend and former member here...

    The Cliche Chocolate Lava Cake

    I am looking for a recipe/technique where I can make a chocolate molten lava cake that I can make ahead of time (for my restaurant) I've tried a couple, my favorite was the coulant with the ganache in the middle, except the ganache would either sink to the bottom during baking, or the top...

    Cooking Fish sous vide pre-service

    I use zip locks because I'm actually just cooking in a circulator, not real 'sous vide' as in cryovac. For instance, I was doing a olive oil poached halibut last year where I would put the preseasoned fish in the bag with olive oil pre service, then drop the bag on the order-in and it would take...

    Cooking Fish sous vide pre-service

    I don't have too much sous vide experience... I use it mainly for poaching sausages, lobsters, eggs, carrots, potatoes, etc. I want to do a poached fish in like a supreme or bercy sauce in a ziplock. How have you experienced cooks done this? I want to do fluke paupiettes and warm them up for...

    Searing a Foie Gras torchon

    Need some input here. I want to roll a lobe of foie gras into a cylinder like a torchon but still be able to sear it to get the crust and serve it hot. I tried it with a torchon I currently have but the texture kind of falls apart and doesnt get a nice crust when seared, rather a mush. Has...

    How do you retain a talented cook?

    If they are a hardcore "real" cook they will work for you only to learn from you and leave once they've worked every station like a boss. This should take a good cook two years--I never expect a good line cook to stay for more than two years. If he does, he's not ambitious enough or he's...

    Ethnic Neighborhood Assignment

    North williamsburg? Why the **** don't they just say Greenpoint? lol this is wrong on multiple levels. Williamsburg has just as many puerto ricans as hipsters. I lived in "east williamsburg" for a few years... but it's actually called Bushwick, ***.

    Chopped episode June 12

    That sounds like a very unfortunately experience. It is TV, and I expected a bunch of nonsense... it's an industry that I never looked at with much respect, no offense to those working in that industry--but you never know the whole picture in any TV besides fiction; and propaganda bothers me on...
