One of the best burgers I've had is made at Fathers Office in Culver City CA. The burger is made up of dry aged beef mixed with regular ground beef. The dry aged meat gives it a deep meaty flavor. Then on top is an amazing bacon onion marmalade. Truly a work of burger art! ====SWAIN:;:-----

Cool... I gave the vaporizer a try with liquids a while back and had good luck with rosemary. The trick I found is getting the heat level at the correct temp....IE...no smoke. Anyhow...looks like the class was super fun......wish I could have been there!!! ====SWAIN:::------

Very cool. I'm going to have to try sous vide wings. Do you need the bones on the plate? I guess it does tell the dinner it started life as a wing. Just would look sleeker without the very clean bones. Also I will have to try compressing herbs to checkout the various textures and flavor it brings out. ====SWAIN:::----

Did you vacuum seal the infusion or just let it marinate for hours? ====SWAIN:::-----

Darn you and your cool links! Now I'm drooling over a couple of those cool items! The Evaporator is just wildly interesting. The article also has me thinking that I spend way too much on kitchen gadgets as I have 12 of the 25 in the list! Still on my wish list is the Pacojet and then more space in my kitchen to put all of these big toys! Stuff not on the list that's also interesting: CVAP, IR Grill, Homogenizer, IR Thermometer, SuperBags, Vacuum Clarification, Percision Scales, and anyone what to add some items to the list. ====SWAIN::----

Your hard drive might not be dead. I would pull out the drive or have someone remove the drive. Then get an external hard drive case (USB or Firewire) and install the drive. If it still works you can copy over your data, and you now have a nice external drive. It might be worth a try if you lost lots of data. =============Swain----

Cut to: Homer Simpson: (in a salivating state) "Ymmmmmm, branch of fennel rolled in goat cheese!, Ymmmmmm" Fade to black. ------------ No, no. It does sound interesting. Just not sure about chewing on a branch of any thing? I guess I would have to give it a try first. The goat however looks amazing! I've never had goat what is the flavor like? ======SWAIN::::::-----------

I really like these ironic lines. Here are a couple from me. -------------- Irony is someone who is so obsessed with not using salt they bug their friends not to use salt, but have no problem eating a polish dog, fast food, or a frozen dinner! Irony is someone that refuses to eat food at home made with onions, but loves to go out for Mexican food? --------------- I could see this list getting very big! ===============SWAIN::::::::::::------------------
