I see BoingBoing’s picked up on the exciting stuff you can do with pressure, extraction, marinades and so on.
(For a summary, check the Khymos post of a few weeks ago).
Of course, KKC ain’t far behind! I’ve been doing some tests with extraction, and will be doing some marinade tests as soon as I have some chicken or other marinadable meat to hand. Expect a post soon.
(Initial results: garlic-infused oil WIN. Coffee-infused Glenmorangie FAIL. Other results in need of more testing.)
