The science of sauces
Creating sauces in the kitchen can be difficult but it is one of the fundamentals to become a good chef: it involves techniques that with a little bit of advice and the appliance of science can be mastered easily.
This week FDL took a closer look at the science of sauces. If you worry about that perfect sauce curdling or that mayonnaise cracking right at the last minute then this is certainly a piece for you.
Food on wheels
This week FDL focused on the gourmet food truck movement that's taken to the roads of LA offering healthy, fresh food from the back of a van.
Fresh guacamole for Mexican lovers, the best sushi for a healthy Japanese diet and vegan and organic recipes are all being offered at certain spots around LA as the food truck movement takes hold. The chefs who drive the trucks are even tweeting their menus daily to their loyal followers and customers.
