This week on Cooking Issues Dave discussed the best way to "pre-batch" cocktails and his scientific research into the difference between stirring and shaking mixed drinks. He also recounted a trip to Maine wherein, with the help of a twenty-pound monster lobster, he attempted to disprove the adage that bigger lobsters taste worse. Plus Dave describes the origins of the most exotic of all exotic meats (lion, badgers, and bears, oh my) and where you can purchase and consume manna from heaven. This episode was sponsored byHearst Ranch: purveyors of grass-fed beef grazing on the beautiful coast of San Simeon, CA.
