    Just thought about it, and with so many of those guys cooking in the test kitchen everyday, it makes me wonder how the test kitchen would smell. Magnificent? Strange? A mix of both maybe?

    Got a new oven and decided to make mini lobster tails[Costco]. Actually READ the oven manual [cause, we ARE talking lobster tails], and the manual said to leave the oven door ajar while broiling. Lobster tails turned out nicely.

    It's not a pesto though? Because it doesn't have toasted nuts.

    Actually the green sauce you made is actually called Pistou :) Your meatballs look amazing, by chance do you have a video to acutally make the spicy sausage? I live in Germany and "spicy" is so not a thing here xD

    May I suggest boiling those meatballs instead of frying them... unless you want to be making trips back and forth to the bathroom. Nevertheless, it's a great recipé.

    • Alan Morris

      @Sarah Allen
      Steaming the meatballs is a great idea too! Try to get rid of as much grease as possible.

    When I was in culinary school one of my colleagues was a super taster too, and I felt the same way Carla does. Like, am I even tasting the food I eat? This guy experiences my entire career on an entirely different level than I do, what the hell am I even doing?
    Carla, you're not alone.
    Oh, also my brother is one too, but he is one of those "eat to live, not live to eat" types.

    honestly, supertasters are pretty common (vastly more so in children and pregnant women because evolution) and while there are specific tests you can do to find out if you are one, the easiest way is just like take a sip of black coffee. If it's unbearably bitter, you're probably a supertaster.
    Sincerely, the person whose senior research project in college was supertasters.
    P.S. like 25% of people are supertasters. 50% are tasters (which means like they can taste bitterness but it's not like crazily gross). and 25% are non tasters (which means they either can't taste bitterness at all or it's just really faint)

    I used to be a supertaster but have become a non taster, which is great when I accidentally burn grilled cheese from getting distracted, because I can't really taste the burnt. Also I can chug black coffee. It's a real power move.

    9:55 Traditional Pesto only uses 4 ingredients: Basil, Olive Oil, Pine Nuts and Parmigiano Reggiano... NO GARLIC. But you can add any ingredients you like, like garlic. I personally like to mix the basil with baby spinach, and I like to mix the Parmigiano Reggiano with Pecorino Romano. Some times I substitute the Pine Nuts with any nuts I may have at hand... like almonds or pecans. But I think that at least the 4 traditional ingredients should be present in it be a pesto.
