Hummus #Snackattack Video

Hummus is one of my favorite all time accompaniments. Whats so amazing about it, is that it only has about a hand full of ingredients, and can be made super fast. It goes great as a dip with chips, or some grilled pita bread. Even as a meal, simply grill some vegetables, with meat, lamb, chicken, or beef, and serve with a side of hummus.

After every chapter you'll find yourself saying " wait what?" "really?" "Wow thats crazy"

Pasta Cooking Controversy (Cold water method)

Pasta tasting (pappardelle marinara and cavatelli  pesto genovese)

All of my life, all through culinary school every time anyone cooks pasta the procedure is as follows. One large pot with large amounts of water, boil, salt water, add pasta stir and cook until al dente. This is the only way to cook pasta most people will declare.
