Hi Jacob,

On the myth, “Sear the meat to seal in the juices,” I found a reference to this in the Kindle version of On Food and Cooking by Harold McGee. He mentions that this myth was disproven in the 1800’s. Location 4395 of 27600 (15%) if you have the Kindle version.

I’m curious to know if this is still being taught by any (big-name or not) culinary school. Anyone know the answer to this one?
