This week on Cooking Issues Dave and Nastassia tackle a bevy of questions and add some sage advice on all-you-can-eat restaurants for good measure. Dave helps a new college student sans kitchen (or even a hotplate) by explaining how to smelt metal in her microwave (seriously), and lends a hand to a fledgling food writer. This episode was sponsored by Hearst Ranch: purveyors of grass-fed beef from the coast of California.
