Read Up On It – For December 2nd, 2011

We’ve got it all for you this week in Passable’s weekly Read Up On It: from candy making to how to open a bottle of wine with only a shoe.

  • Ever wanted to learn how to butcher a side of pork?

This video series from Farmrun is a good place to learn.

  • Speaking of videos, Google Talks has been inviting all kinds of chefs to come and talk. Recently, they asked Momofuku Milk Bar’s Christina Tosi to dish about noshing, pastry and why she makes all those tasty crumbs. (I mean seriously, have you had those crumbs? There is a reason this woman uses the words “crack” when describing some of her baking – ed.)
  • The Atlantic talks about that lovely thing,the white truffle.
