I would pay good money to be able to do that.
I am going to sous vide some pasta.
real talk: soak some linguine in cold water for an hour and a half, then drop them in boiling water when you are ready to eat - they become al dente in exactly 1 minute. Not the most useful trick I guess, but I bet it would come in handy to more than just restaurants.

Grilled lobster with eggplant caviar and lobster roe vinaigrette:
matt pwns again.
That soup looks really good and I enjoy the brunoise of carrot in your lobster dish. What did you do to make the vinaigrette?
And I seriously envy the amount of lobster you consume.
Lobster is seriously and truly overrated. At least, the meaty parts. The roe and tomalley are fantastic.
+1. Of the meat in a lobster, the claw is my favorite. But still, it is always the last thing I will order at a restaurant. I much prefer a good crab.
I also never order shrimp.
Dear Kyle. You are wrong. If you ever get the chance to visit PEI, I will treat you to lobster dinner at one of those church places - a 1.5 lber is perfect. You will drop down to your knees and praise Jesus that he allowed you to eat something that good. Then you will open up a restaurant and donate all the profits to charity.
It's not a brunoise. They are little spheres of lobster roe. Basically you mix the roe with softened butter and mustard, then you heat some olive oil until warm. You put the roe mixture in a squeeze bottle and drop little droplets into the oil. When they float and turn red, you take them out. Then you add chopped shallots to the oil and cook them slowly, then you combine the little spheres, the shallots, some of the oil and some tarragon and you have your vinaigrette.
I disagree that lobster is overrated. If it is cooked well it's really wonderful. If Kyle could fold napkins, he would be as cool as me.
You are invited as well. Looks like we've got two holy rollers in the making here.
I think lobster is delicious. The way it is served in restaurants is a whole other issue.
Like a boss. Man, I just ate a pretty good dinner, but I could eat that, for real.
