Normally I cook in a very casual manner, and since I am largely not allergic to most things (mussels being the one real bad thing, fortunately I hate them) my friends are used to a very cavalier style of cooking. Recently I did an event for one of them and he was shocked, a very different approach and level of attention. I would feel horrible if I caused any person, but particularly a child to go into shock and require medical attention, or if someone got food poisoning and had a miserable time.
I'm feeling bearish, and I'm packing a Wusthof Grand Brisket slicer from MABA
