          It was good. I'm pretty tired from all the time travel though.

            :)

        2. Although it went way too fast (for those wanting to really absorb some of the technical techniques/info; thank heavens for rewind) I found the first 3 segments really interesting and lively. One thing that frustrates the heck out of me is that I have not been able to find out who WROTE it. It did not list writers in the credits (that i could see) and it isn't on IMDB yet. Does anyone know? The writers are also not mentioned in the NYTimes article or others I found through google. thx much.

              Thanks alot for the tip off- this sounds like a great series and I also enjoyed the first couple of episodes quite a bit. It's somewhat timely after reading about the popular ramen place in Cambridge Yume Wo Katare in another thread (where I just crushed a bowl after a 30 minute wait).
              Thread link is: http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/873635

              The harvard lecture materials are available on:

              Finally, just wanted to add that you can catch episodes and previews online anytime at:
              http://video.pbs.org/program/mind-chef/
              You can buy DVDs of each episode, but I'm really sad that I can't just subscribe via iTunes or another digital service like that (which I'd happily pay for instead of streaming off their site).

              Looking forward to the next episode...

                Thanks for the links - was having trouble finding them.

          2. I have only watched the ramen episode, which made me crave ramen and I don't think that craving is going to be squelched anytime soon. It was serious food porn. and who doesn't love david chang. I cant wait to watch the other episodes.

              The ramen episode was awesome. I thought the ramen gnocchi was the coolest thing in the whole episode.

            2. im determined to make the momofuku ramen broth next time I have some serious time off from work. David chang has become my hero with these shows.
