If you look at the links to the right, you'll see I'm a Good Eats fan. I like the science that Alton embeds into his show. In fact, I never really understood emulsions (yeah, I know, my AP Chem teacher would be very sad) until he explained them with his styrofoam balls and push-pins.
I have wanted him to cover pretzels for a long time. I enjoy pretzels (especially Wetzel's with sour cream and onion (? or is it chives?) but most pretzels that you buy -- and especially frozen ones -- have an odd chlorine-y taste to them.
Tonight's Good Eats is all about pretzels. Yay.
