Questions in this Episode:

“My question is about shrimp. Frozen shrimp and the additives that are in about 99% of the shrimp that I find at the supermarket—they all seem to have this particular additive that I can smell. I’m just curious why it seems like no one else really seems to notice this?”

“My question has to do with making beef stock. I follow the same procedure year after year but sometimes the stock is more gelatinous than other years. Do you know why this is?”

“I have made several banana bread recipes and they all turn out soupy. Do you have any tips or a good banana bread recipe?”
