    I Need Crisp, Briny Pickles

    I Need Crisp, Briny Pickles

    10 years ago, Jenny had a half-sour pickle from Zingerman's Deli in Ann Arbor, MI... and it was life-changing. But Jenny lives in North Carolina. She hasn't been back to Michigan, and attempts to recreate the signature half-sour crunch in her own kitchen have been unsuccessful. Chris enlists BA resident fermentation enthusiast Amiel Stanek (with a special appearance by Zingerman's cofounder Ari Weinzweig) to concoct a "recipe" that'll have Jenny enjoying crisp, barely-pickled half-sours all summer long.

Dinner SOS

It’s a good show, but lately Chris is getting too bossy and picks on his co-chef.

Take a load off

This is the twenty-first century guys! In the episode “I Need Lots of Protein” all the emphasis is on bright chatter about recipes, when part of the solution is clearly that this mother needs some assistance in the kitchen to lighten her load. Her strapping six foot plus sons could take on a bit of responsibility in producing those nightly three and four pound protein meals by at least doing the dishes. No one suggested that.
