Slow-poaching an egg in an immersion circulator is not exactly frying it…

Michael Nagrant

I wasn’t referring to Wiley’s cooking method. Basically saying that “molecular gastronomy” is a bad term, because all gastronomy is basically molecular. Anytime you change a state of matter, i.e. cook a runny egg into a solid one, on a molecular level, something is happening…in this case the proteins on the egg are unwinding. I just think people should stop using the term.


I think Graham Elliot Bowles and Michael Carson need to headline a Lollapalooza-like festival only for food. Hmm, that’s not a bad idea.

I liked that Elizabeth made cookies while they waited for the judges to deliberate.

I think Wylie got rattled by the first challenge and just never recovered. Also, he and Graham should do a food on the road show. Only funny and watchable (unlike the Mario Batali/Gwyneth Paltrow PBS show).

I can’t wait for Bayless’ smack-talking next week. Can’t wait!

Incredible: less substantive than the amateur version !!

Pass the Ricearoni please.


nice spoiler in number 8 there.

The winner might have benefited from some discernible affect. $10,000 to her favorite charity plus a truckload of Zoloft.


Rick Bayless draws a quesdilla challenge? Man, if he loses that he better hide out.


Nothing chemical about sous-vide except the plastic. Or would that be molecular?
