re: I'm a free enterprise guy, but something has to be done about drug prices - Powerman
[quote] At no point should anyone be profiting off of anyone's health in a country like ours. [/quote] I wonder how far you're willing to take that stance. Should the owner of a gym not be able to turn a profit?...

re: Do you have a culinary torch? What do you use it for? - Powerman
[quote]I have that same one. It does a good job for creme brulee but doesn't have enough horsepower to sear a steak well. [/quote] Thanks I'd assume it would be fine on something lighter like Salmon?...

re: Do you have a culinary torch? What do you use it for? - Powerman
[quote]I would probably use the small propane torch for toasting a meringue or caramelizing a Crème Brulee. Granted, it is probably not sexy enough for table side use. [/quote] I got this one http://www.amazon.com/BonJour-Brushed-Aluminum-Chefs-Torch/dp/B000G9OYX4/ref=sr_1_3?s=home-garden&ie...

re: Rotolo's wings - Powerman

Do you have a culinary torch? What do you use it for? - Powerman
I bought one a while back and still haven't used it. Mainly got it to make Creme Brulee just haven't gotten around to it yet. I've seen some sushi chefs use it to sear tuna and I assume it would be good for getting a good crust on a steak or maybe a ham glaze. Any other good uses for it?...

re: Spinoff...."farm to table" vs "sustainable"...Which One Is More bullshitee? - Powerman
[quote]Sustainable is only seafood restaurants right? [/quote] No. It's essentially the new word for organic as it is used in common vernacular. Once most of the claims about organic foods were proved to be BS the new mission is "sustainability" which is just another term for the same thing IMO. ...

re: Having some coworkers over for dinner soon - suggestions - Powerman
[quote]Chili would work. I'd suggest adding some deadly bacteria (don't you eat it). This will create vacancies at your company and increase your upward mobility. [/quote] Well I'm technically their boss already. I consider them peers though. :cheers:...
