Podcast 2.6 - What is progressive?

What is progressive in terms of cooking?  Is it molecular?  Is it looking back to move forward?  Is it a bong full of whiskey?  This was our topic on this podcast, which was graciously hosted by Eddie Lau. (hotfoodporn.com) Amy Brown was there, as well as Katrina Dixon. (@ramekinparty)  There was food, and booze, and laughs.  Things were pretty loose for, oh, 15 minutes or so...but its all entertainment.  Enjoy. 

ps
If you want to play our drinking game, take a sip every time you hear the word "progressive."  You will probably black out.

Opening music is Mullet Head by The Beastie Boys

Going to a bunch of different places for each course? I guess that is eating, but really, I think you need a different word.

haha so the conclusion you all came to was that "progressive" is a confusing and indefinable term that can mean both progression, regression, or staying away from the mainstream fads. I think I'm more confused now, but I enjoyed the discussion for sure.

damn that pork belly looks good.
