I had a whole episode written called the surreal gourmet, which ended with tenderizing steak with dynamite, but it had all those other things like poaching fish on your catalytic converter or cooking eggs in your dishwasher, Jamie loves the idea of tenderizing meat in the dryer.
…Also the idea of is it safe to eat fresh road kill. We think that would be just hilarious and gross.
That is Adam Savage, from Jeff Potter's new and periodically interesting book Cooking for Geeks: Real Science, Great Hacks, and Good Food. This is most of all a book for those who wish to think of cooking in terms of engineering, but without going the molecular gastronomy route.
