Cooking With Heat
I shlepped to New Jersey today to go to Gadgetoff, the great technology/futurism/just plain goofy yet quite cool conference. I will leave it to the professionals to describe the various technological events. One event did involve cooking, however, although in a rather unique way. As you can see the gentleman on the left has an attractive, propane powered flame thrower in his hand. It actually has beautiful brass fittings and a well sculpted wood handle. He used it to cook bananas and make carne assada. Both recipes actually worked, although the meat, suprisingly, was more gray than charred. Although I doubt I will be using this cooking method anytime soon, its nice to know it works. And I guess thats what Gadgetoff is all about.
