comment What parasites are problematic in sous vide?
@setek - Your original answer was fairly comprehensive and authoritative (even if it didn't specifically mention parasites). If you still have the content, it would be worth integrating along with this information as a resource for anyone else coming across this question.

comment What is this French cuisine technique called, where “a piece of pheasant meat is cooked between two slices of veal, which are then discarded?”
To Yuji's point, it had better taste good. Meat "wastage" is as serious a crime as beer spillage

comment Substituting tomatillos
+1 - I was going to recommend the most unripe, fleshy tomatoes you can find. The have the tartness you're looking for and because they haven't had time to develop much seeds, they'll hold up to cooking.

comment Does the foam head affect the taste of cola?
Coca Cola is markedly different in other countries. The Coke in Mexico (and the diet coke as well) is hugely different in taste from what is sold in the US. The best tasting coke (...I almost typed--the best coke I ever had) I ever had was in Frankfurt, Germany. In the US, Pepsi typically tastes sweeter than Coke, however that is reversed in Canada. Coca Cola in Asia is very different than in Europe and North America. The only thing uniform about Coke internationally is the red label.

comment Trick to keeping guacamole from turning brown
Keeping the avocado pit does help along with covering with cling wrap, but allowing the wrap to rest on the surface---minimizing the opportunity for the air to get to the mole
