Welcome to Eating Disorder hosted by The Rev Spyro, Chef Paul Gerard, and Adam Velez! Each week our hosts will be taking shots and poking fun at some of the most bizarre, amusing and ridiculous trends to hit the culinary world, along with a revolving door of special guests. This week, Dustin Hegleson of Sweden Unlimited and Billy Gilroy of Employees Only join the program to talk smack about some of the more outrageous food trends of 2013, and talk about the importance of taste. It doesn't matter if it's local unless it tastes good! Learn if cruelty-free meat is a possibility, and find out why Spyro prefers his quinoa on the sweet side. Why are meatballs such a trendy food item? Find out on the debut of Eating Disorder! Thanks to our sponsor, Brooklyn Slate. Music by Dead Stars.

"The idea that 'local' is the selling point and not the fact that it tastes good is what really bothers me." [10:00]

This week on Straight, No Chaser Katy Keiffer has an in-depth conversation about vertical farming with Dr. Dickson Despommier, the author of The Vertical Farm: Feeding the World in the 21st Century. A professor emeritus at Columbia University, Dr. Despommier spent thirty-eight years as a professor of microbiology and public health. Hear some radical ideas including underground farming without daylight and plasma arc gasification. From wind power in Holland to seed banks in Japan, hear about some of the concepts being integrated into new agricultural models across the globe. This show was made possible by Fairway Market.

"Vertical farming is simply tacking high tech green houses on top of each other and integrating the systems."

"The concept of vertical farming is not new. If you look back at history you can find hanging gardens of Babylon and references of urban gardening and agriculture - but the timing was wrong."

--Dr. Dickson Despommier on Straight, No Chaser

Dave returns to the studio this week with tales of dog sledding in Sweden and opening up his new bar, Booker and Dax, in New York. Tune in to learn how to keep your meatballs from falling apart, what the Dextrose Equivalent scale is and how to use it, as well as helping those of you with fish allergies find something you can eat. This episode is sponsored by Modernist Pantry.

"When you're cook meatballs, you have to fry them BEFORE you cook them in a bag with butter. That will keep them from falling apart."

"I use Dextrose Equivalent 20 glucose syrup when I make ice cream and want to get the texture but not add too much sweetness."

--Dave Arnold on Cooking Issues
