"El Bulliesque"

December 14 2007 - 2:19 PM

While watching Iron Chef America (Cora vs. Richards) judge Karine Bakhoum called a martini with chemical-caviar  El Bulliesque.  Is that pretentiousness or is it another new word?

Not to mention that Cat called cooking carrots in a Ziploc bag sous vide… I always thought that the vacuum seal was what made food’s flavors concentrated. Isn’t it otherwise a type of pressure cooking?
