    Everyone's favorite word is "YES!" But today's show is all about NO - what not to do. You know, all the things you've been told were oh so wrong - like cheese with fish, using a dull knife, and starting that shrimp sear in a cold pan. We'll also take a look at that very dubious food product, SPAM. And, discover a new way perfume is being used in restaurants.

    Some worthy things just have a bad reputation. On today's show we re-evaluate bad reputation stories: pig pens are a mess; tequila gives you a killer hangover; and tofu tastes like nothing. Often, you can make a silk purse out of a sow's ear. For instance, Sy Montgomery talks about her amazing pet pig. Mr. Cutlets talks about a pig of a whole other kind - a smuggled ham.
