    Not denying that. But the thought of you running FOH, dressed better than the fucking President, and then overhearing some retarded conversation between two Bay Area yuppies about whatever saccharine liberal issue is that day's amuse bouche before the inevitable self satisfied flogging session of George W. Bush and Reagan, flipping out, ripping the Bramblefuck Happy Hills Farm Arugula Salad from their table and throwing them out... it's too precious to not consider.

    How do you know he doesn't view those sessions as bizzare torture?

    Ya but I can just imagine the eye rolling as you're going there. Also I don't want to sully my sort of Roald Dahl mental image of you so I'm just going to pretend that I didn't read that and say to myself that you're joking.

    Wish I was the photo taking type because I have a hunk of beef shank here that looks like it actually came from a T-rex.

    I have a very late dinner tomorrow night (10pm) so I am going to eat it for lunch. It's times like this that I'm glad I have a tiny little Le Creuset that I can braise things for one.

    No. His is a unique brand. Completely proprietary..cannot be reverse engineered or understood according to a more standard idiom such as the one you describe.

    Patricia Neal was one of my favorite actresses. A Face in the Crowd was so ahead of its time.

    yes, you can. Happy to attest.

    But I agree you'd be best FOH.

    For those interested in sous-vide, but hesitant to invest any money in to it, try the stovetop method. I've done just a few things and have had great results. Obviously there is a bit less control, so you have to pay attention, making the long soaks a bit more difficult.

    I like building stuff, so I might try the build-your-own immersion circulator that kwilk posted somewhere from wired magazine. Budget for that was about $100.
