    i think he wants it mainly so he can criticize it after he's looked at it. our matt is nothing but KNOWLEDGEABLY disdainful.
    which, i predict, he will be. it's pretty cool. there's amazing photographs. lot of surprising stuff if you search through it, but it's mainly an eccentric genius billionaire's cabinet of curiosities.

    He's like Antonin Careme! Except Careme became famous FOR being a chef. But that's not important.

    I'm hoping it is better than that, but I fear that you are correct.

    no puede. the only place i can think of that would have had it would have been cook's library, but they've been closed down for a couple of years now. i'm afraid it's mail-order only and there is a wait.

    Golden State. I avoided it due to hype and popularity on places like Yelp, and because I hate trying to find parking around Canter's, but the burger was truly excellent.

    My uninformed rant is that I had to dedicate a whole room in my house to unpacking the thing.

    Thanks, but I actually wanted to know where mordecai had his amazing burger.

    Thank you. I'll have to give this a try the next time I'm in the area.

    I haven't had that much time with it, but it strikes me that nobody needs this many powders to cook dinner. Cool stuff, some of it, but come on...

    So, apparently I was right. A steak cooked in a pan gains approximate 10c/18f while resting. [​IMG]

    Huh, I've always only accounted for a carryover of 5-10° F during rest.

    Maybe it depends on atmospheric pressure or something but I never get that much temp rise from resting.
