The Food Labs Guide to Corned Beef and the Science of Simmering More tests, more results! Follow The Food Lab on Facebook or Twitter. [Photographs: J. Kenji Lopez-Alt] When most people cook corned beef brisket, what do they do? They just chuck it in a pot with a bunch of cabbage, potatoes, and carrots, bring it up to a boil, and let it simmer away until tender, right? I really love corned beef. There are two basic steps to corned beef: the rub, and the cooking. I've cooked 38 pounds of beef in my tiny apartment, which is driving the dog absolutely wild. The Rub First, a bit of history. The average Irishman was too poor to afford the very beef they were raising Throughout the 17th and 18th centuries, the green fields of Ireland were used to graze cattle to produce corned beef that went mainly to feeding British civilians, the British and American navies and armies (its long shelf life made it ideal for overseas journeys), and for trade with the French. To this day, very little corned beef is consumed in Ireland by the Irish. Ah! Salt Nitrates Ick, right?

Startup-Advisor Dating I get about 4 emails a week from law students and attorneys with questions about launching a law practice. It’s an awkward and humbling experience for me. I’m not a law practice management expert and several years ago I had many of these same questions. But I try to answer as many emails and calls as I can. I wish more startup veterans would do the same and provide mentorship to new entrepreneurs, such as taking a seat on a startup’s advisory board. A lot of the startups I work with placer a higher value on mentorship than investment capital, and would have no issue with a small equity grant to a good advisor. Why does it feel like most successful startup participants have their success and fall back into the shadows of the city? There are successful startup veterans in every community. I think it’s time to start a Startup-Advisor Dating service, in the spirit of Founder Dating. Maybe there’s one around that I’m missing.

Photographing Every Rest Stop In America : The Picture Show For me, rest stops conjure up feelings of motion sickness and memories of my brother's favorite, but sickly, childhood snack food, Combos. But photographer Lizzy Oppenheimer has more misty watercolor memories. "I treasured my experiences at rest stops due to not only the relief they provided but more so because of the individual charm of each rest stop," she writes on her website. Oppenheimer's project began in 2009, and her aim is to photograph every single rest area in America, "just before their closure due to budget cuts," she writes. Lizzy Oppenheimer Lizzy Oppenheimer Lizzy Oppenheimer Lizzy Oppenheimer Lizzy Oppenheimer Lizzy Oppenheimer Lizzy Oppenheimer To Oppenheimer's credit, rest stops have an interesting architectural history — and her aim is to preserve it. They're sort of the limbo of travel — neither here nor there.

Some people liken it to liquefied candy—which isn't far off considering that it was often served at soda fountains with a scoop of ice cream. These days it's reaching a wider consumer base than ever, thanks in large part to the surge of boutique bottlers popping up across the country. True aficionados know there's more to cream soda than just how much sugar's been crammed into the bottle.
