We know that, like us, you’ve got opinions about how lobster should taste. But, unlike us, maybe you just can’t bring yourself to do the creatures in. It’s the silent scream that gets you. The one you’ve never heard but that you know is there—isn’t it? Exactly who told you that, anyway?
Leave it to the dynamic culinary duo of Bruce Weinstein and Mark Scarbrough—the ones who brought you tales (and delicious recipes) of Ham, and getting it through airport security—to sort it all out: the myths from the reality; the food science and sound advice from the misguided fads and folklore of generations.
Will eating carrots improve your eyesight? What about the wisdom of wearing onion goggles? In this fun-to-use and duly researched reference volume, Weinstein and Scarbrough take on more than 100 popular kitchen myths and explain how knowing the truth can help you become a better chef. You’ll also find 25 recipes that demonstrate how to put these revelations to use. Perfect for your countertop, coffee table, or as a gift for your favorite food-lover.
P.S., The “Five-Second Rule”? It’s dispatched along with other kitchen fables in this set of companion videos for Lobsters Scream. Take a look…then scrub the floor (but don’t eat off it).
