Sometimes you have no idea how backwards the typical cooking norms are, until you have someone show you what you’re missing out on.  I certainly have Chef Andrew to thank for my current kitchen hardware decisions.



Shihan Q.

Thanks for the CEU presentation! I just designed a kitchen and have used all the modern home appliances! I’m very excited to share that soon!

What Chef Andrew says about the food science and physics behind what’s happening with the food is extremely fascinating and topical.  He also fields all questions, and takes the time to explain the successes behind what he’s doing.  The understanding he imparts speaks for itself the next time you cook.

Great presentation !!

I only accept perfectly cooked meat now, because I know how easy it is to sous vide.  I used to eat out for 90% of my meals, but thanks to my kitchen having more function and less hurdles, almost all my meals are home prepped.
