HHH026 Interview with J. Kenji Lopez-Alt | The Food Lab
I got to interview chef/scientist J. Kenji López-Alt — mastermind behind The Food Lab column on the Serious Eats site — about how he discovered cooking and his approach to finding optimal techniques. We discuss the best (really) way to cook a steak; dispute the idea that you should never refrigerate tomatoes; and why it might be best to cook pasta in just a few cups of water. (I think it’ll surprise you!) Plus, Kenji goes deep on deep frying and the perfect French fries method.
