Ed and Kenji Take Your Calls (Part 2)

This week’s especial Special Sauce episode (I know that’s redundant, but it rolls off the tongue) again features my runnin’ and eatin’ partner, Kenji López-Alt, Serious Eats’ managing culinary director and the author of the New York Times best seller The Food Lab: Better Home Cooking Through Science.

Together, we answered some great questions from curious callers. Can someone learn to love calf’s liver? (Maybe with a little liver therapy, administered by phone.) How can you get your homemade pizza sauce to be as good as the stuff at the best pizzerias? And how can you slow-cook ground beef without making it tough? Between Kenji’s cooking (and punning) expertise and my eating (and kibbitzing) experience, we managed to come up with answers that we think you’ll find both helpful and amusing.
