The latest raw beef salmonella recall spanned across more than 30 states and recent recalls have impacted big names like Kroger, Walmart and Whole Foods. Consumers understand that foodborne illness can happen, but...

In American culture we tend to have an obsession with extremes. We want our lattes to be venti-sized with a quad-shot of espresso. We want the digital camera with the highest megapixel count. We want the house with the most square feet. So when when it comes to Wagyu from Japan, we want the one with the most marbled fat content and the highest rating – A5.

In case you find yourself in the predicament I was in of needing to thaw a 20-pound frozen turkey in 10 hours or less, we've got your covered. In your moment of panic, just remember to not heat your turkey to defrost it (counter-thawing and hot water = bad idea). It's actually quite easy.
