Food Safety Talk 165: Vladimir Poutine

Don and Ben talk a little bit about their op-sec, stuff their watching (including Star Trek) and Ben’s trip to Québec City. In the ongoing history of Canadian cuisine segment they visit the fantastic Quebecois dish, poutine. They talk Walkerton, the World Equestrian Games and non-potable water. The conversation goes into California’s make-meals-at-home-and-sell-them rules and some feedback about chicken washing. The show ends with a chat on curve fitting tricks, phages and ingredient-linked outbreaks.

Episode 165 is available on iTunes and here.
