This week on Cooking Issues Dave answered an email question regarding arguably the most delectable (and until the discovery of the ghost pepper, the hottest) of all peppers: the habanero. The listener was intent on neutralizing the heat of a habanero without killing the delightful floral aroma or taste, and wanted to do so without the use of a roto-vap. Topics covered this week also included the science of cooling and distilling a cocktail, the benefits of buying restaurant equipment from former drug fronts, and the legal issues involved in cooking and eating game. Plus Dave attempted help a listener cook fluffier farro. This episode was sponsored by Fairway: like no other market.

Dave ordered a bunch of odd meats from a butcher in Chicago, America used to be the game food capital of the world, it used to all be legal to spend, you are not allowed to sell food that you hunt, the birds that you are allowed to kill are highly regulated, migration birds, they get super fat and caught and eaten, rice bird, lion meat, lion tastes a bit like pork chop, bloody mineral aftertaste, whole racoon, doesn't have that much meat on it, beaver tastes delicious, beaver was cooked for two days, woody pulled pork, the flapper is mainly fat and skin, yak was cooked for a whole day, yak was savory and delicious, duck and tuna notes, these are all old animals, caller question, cooking farro, use a pressure cooker, should cook similar to a rye berry, try using excess liquid, Cesare Casella, Cesare cooks it risotto style, Louis DiPaolo, Ortolan, Bob-o-link, bear,
