    It's just superior in this time of age. Admit it. :happy: (Also, you use "cents" which are one hundredth of a dollar, which is metric, isn't it?)

    Ya. Canola oil, not butter.

    I don't understand why Keller decided that cooking oil was the thing that he was going to skimp on. Canola always smells fishy to me at high-ish heat.

    The more I learn, the more I see that Keller has some queer tendencies when it comes to cooking. His food is always gorgeous, though.

    I think that canola oil has a weird smell, too. Also non-cooked. I prefer sunflower oil as a neutral oil.

    Canola oil does smell like fish at high heats. I like grapeseed, but it's harder to buy here in bulk than canola, and I go through a lot of it.

    Ducasse always breaks his sauces. So do all European chefs (or at least the great majority.) The whole gummy pool of gelatin is not a la mode, thank God.

    Edit: this is a response to some part of this trainwreck.

    Top of page 113. I break/pearl it sometimes and mount it with butter other times. Either way it doesn't come out like a gummy pool of gelatin, I'm assuming since it's based mainly on meat rather than bones.

    He got it wrong. He meant to say that we didn't invade the Japanese beaches of Normandy just to use metric.

    What would you break a chicken jus with? Clarified chicken fat? I've got some that is pretty rich tasting as it is, and I wanted to serve it with fish. I may just emulsify in some butter.
