Looking for a good new food blog to read? Check out Cooking Issues, the French Culinary Institute’s Tech n Stuff blog, written by chefs Nils Noren and Dave Arnold, teachers at the FCI in NY. Critics call it Cook’s Illustrated meets Myth Busters. For example, one Thanksgiving, they created a bionic turkey, which they deboned and replaced the bones with aluminum sprinkler piping filled with butter and duck fat.
