How does our brain understand food through texture, density, and temperature? HRN's resident food science expert Meradith Hoddinott explains the relationship between food and touch in this special segment. Learn how the weight of tableware alters our perceptions of a food's richness. How does the melting point of food change its flavor? Tune into this segment to learn more about our five senses, and how they help us understand a meal. This segment has been sponsored by Fairway Market.

"Babies are always sticking things in their mouths because they can learn more about it by exploring with these super sensitive regions." [1:15]

Nathan discusses the modernization of French cuisine, as well as the differences between modern cuisine and traditional fine dining. Then, he describes the development of his endeavors in writing Modernist Cuisine, and how digital photography proved to be an essential part of creating the ideal reading and learning environment for the reader. Finally, Nathan tells us about a few 'radical' ideas for improving wine that would absolutely shock most wine connoisseurs. This program has been sponsored by Hearst Ranch.

EGGPLANT BRUSCETTA TOPPER

  • 2lbs classic Black King Italian eggplant, peeled to leave 1” stripes and cut into 1” thick cubes
  • Cheap olive oil or vegetable oil
  • 1 cubanelle pepper, thinly sliced
  • 1 small Spanish onion, sliced
  • 3 garlic cloves, thinly sliced
  • 4 sprigs thyme, destemmed
  • 1/8 cup red wine vinegar
  • ¼ cup golden raisins
  • 1/8 cup pine nuts
  • Salt, sugar (or honey) and pepper, to taste
  • 1 good, crusty baguette, sliced, brushed with olive oil and toasted
  • Line a large rimmed baking sheet with paper towels. Arrange the eggplant slices in a single layer on the paper towels and sprinkle them with salt. Let stand for 1 hour. Pat the eggplant dry with paper towels. Rinse and dry thoroughly.

    In a large, heavy bottomed pan, heat the oil over medium high. If you don’t have a thermometer, you can test the heat of the oil by dropping slices of onion in – when it’s ready, tiny bubbles will form around the edges. Once it’s good and hot, add the eggplant in batches if necessary and fry for about 3-4 minutes. Using a slotted spoon, transfer the eggplant to fresh paper towels to drain.

    Pour all but about a tablespoon of the oil off of the pan you used for frying (using an empty coffee can is good for this) and replace the pot over heat. Add the thyme, peppers, onion and garlic to the skillet and cook over moderate heat, stirring occasionally, until they begin to lose their shape, about 6-8 minutes, seasoning with salt and pepper, sugar or honey to taste along the way, until everything coalesces into a nice, thick sauce. Return the eggplant to the skillet, stir gently to coat and cook for 3 minutes, or until combined. Stir in the red wine vinegar and simmer for 1 minute. Remove from the heat. Taste for seasoning, adding salt or vinegar as needed. Let cool to room temperature, or refrigerate until lightly chilled, about 20 minutes, then stir in your golden raisins and pine nuts before serving atop crostini toasts.
