Among my favorite chapters so far is the one on Ivy League schools and how kids are better served by going to lower tiered schools. They become a bigger fish in a small pond. Fascinating so far!

..."in a town that seemed unexceptional then, and not, as it seems to me now, the canary in the mine shaft".

Learned today that the French cheese makers refer to the fuzzy mold that forms as a "pretty dress". They're not scared of a little mold.

One of my favorite quotes so far: "sometimes when people ask the why it takes so long to make records it seems like the wrong question it should be why do people make so many records? What for? Future generations are going to be shoveling CDs out of the way".

Harold McGee recommends never allowing a braise to exceed the boiling point—212˚F. Even at 300˚F, liquid in a covered pot will boil, and likely damage the meat.

"One curious fact I stumbled on in my umami research was that human breast milk is rich in this particular taste, and contains relatively large amounts of glutamate—as it happens, nearly the same amount of glutamate as an equivalent amount of dashi. It stands to reason that everything in milk is there for an evolutionary reason; since every chemical compound in it comes at a metabolic cost to the mother"

This is just one example of the remarkable intimidation: "Domingo Benavides Said that the killer did not resemble Oswalt. Soon afterward, that Benavides received death threats, his look-alike brother was killed in a bar fight. Suddenly, he reversed his testimony and agreed that the killer was Oswald. The death threats suddenly stopped."
