No Reservations: Cooking Techniques

If you haven't seen this show, its about a retired chef who travels the world and eats the local cuisine there. Awesome show. Recently he did a special on cooking techniques. Really good stuff, especially on how to cook a steak, omelete, and make a good beef stew.

Tony Bourdain is the man!

Saw his show in Seattle last year and it was well worth it.

Love this show, never a bad episode. I thought the one where he goes through Texas was pretty funny.

Wow, Jacques Pepin (the guy who shows you how to cook an omelete) is 74! Certainly doesn't look his age!

wait 2nd episode...he is using olive oil in a very hot pan


i thought someone said olive oil is NOT meant to pan fry, sear or anything tat has a lot of heat in it. Actually makes the olive oil go bad or some shit like tat

olive oil has a fairly high smoke point depending on its quality and how refined it is.
not as high as vegetable oil but high enough to sear.
if you watch gordon ramsay he uses olive oil for cooking lots of stuff (unless he wants a neutral flavor)

i think it was skinnypup and majinhurccaine tat was debating about cooking with olive oil. Now obviously you DO NOT want to deep fry your food with olive oil. But normal pan sear, stir fry..would it be okay?


another noob question

last time i check i thought ground beef can not be eaten raw or half raw. In the 4th video it showed you how to make burger. He made it medium rare, wouldnt it contain bacteria and all other shit due to it being ground beef? it aint no steak

??????

^^^^ if your ground beef was bought from superstore, safeway then yes, you dont' want to do it, but if you actually go to your butcher and grab a nice piece of prime rib or whatever nice cut of meat and have them ground it, then it's ok.

What's sold as "Ground Beef" in the stores is basically all the left over trimming bits, and there's a chance it could have had contact with parts of the digestive tract - where all the bad bacteria comes from.

Like 6793026 mentioned, good cuts of meat which has been ground by a reputable butcher (One that cleans their machines between use) is perfectly safe to cook less than well done.

My favourite burgers are with ground chuck I like to get from the Cowichan valley meat market... Fucking AWESOME quality meat.

Normal Olive oil has a pretty decent smoke temp. Might want to stay away from extra virgin though.
