Today on the Füd Network

by on Sep.19, 2011, under Events, Presentations, Workshops

Hello, and welcome to Pan vs. Dude, the show where we teach random dudes how to cook things, sometimes even in pans!

I’m your host, Adam Poorman, and today we’ll be going to the mailbag to find a food related question to tackle.  Let me just dig into the bag here and… alright, I’ve got the request we’re going to fulfill today! It is from Mark Oppen, and he writes, “Dear Adam, please teach me about Crisco. Specifically, I’m curious about subnetting and Layers 1 to 3 of the OSI model.”

Well, this is a bit of an usual request. Okay, so Crisco is a brand of shortening useful in many recipes. Personally, I prefer traditional lard shortening when cooking, but I can understand how the budget conscious chef might prefer to go the Crisco route.

Now, let’s see… subnetting? That’s not a cooking term I’m quite familiar with, Mark. As for layers, I guess you mean that you’re baking something with Crisco that’s going to have layers? But what’s this about an OSI model? Are you making some kind of Crisco based layer cake model? Wow, that is an oddly specific question. I’m really not sure where to go with this request. Oh – wait a second, my producer is telling me that I’ve misread your card.  Perhaps he can help shed some light on this question.

What? Cisco? Networking equipment?  I don’t undest- oh, okay, I see what’s happened here. I’m so sorry Mark, it looks like your letter was meant to go to our sister show, LAN vs. Dude.  Well, unfortunately that’s all the time we have this week.  Join us next week for another amazing adventure on Pan vs. Dude, the only show that answers your cooking questions, whether we understand them or not!
