Ron Ben-Israel — on pastillage and his sugar world
 
04:19
Renowned for stunning cake designs featuring elaborate decorations delicately crafted from sugar, Food Network regular Ron Ben-Israel explains his entry in The Oxford Companion to Sugar and Sweets (rightfully about pastillage, the predecessor to modern-day sugar paste) and treats us to a behind-the-scenes tour of the day-to-day life in his 13th story New York City cake shop. Edited by Willcox and Harriet Adsit Professor of Russian at Williams College Darra Goldstein, The Oxford Companion to Sugar and Sweets offers collective knowledge of 265 expert contributors, from food historians to chemists, restaurateurs to cookbook writers, neuroscientists to pastry chefs. The Companion takes readers around the globe and throughout time, affording glimpses deep into the brain as well as stratospheric flights into the world of sugar-crafted fantasies. More than just a compendium of pastries, candies, ices, preserves, and confections, this reference work reveals how the human proclivity for sweet has brought richness to our language, our art, and, of course, our gastronomy. In nearly 600 entries, beginning with "à la mode" and ending with the Italian trifle known as "zuppa inglese," the Companion traces sugar's journey from a rare luxury to a ubiquitous commodity.

Jonas Salk: why he was disliked by the medical community
 
03:43
Although adored by the public for his work on the polio vaccine, Jonas Salk was ostracized by the medical community. Author Charlotte Jacobs talks about the aftermath of one of the most important advances in medicine. http://global.oup.com/academic/product/jonas-salk-9780199334414 In the first complete biography of Jonas Salk, Charlotte DeCroes Jacobs unravels Salk's story to reveal an unconventional scientist and a misunderstood and vulnerable man. Despite his incredible success in developing the polio vaccine, Salk was ostracized by his fellow scientists, who accused him of failing to give proper credit to other researchers and scorned his taste for media attention. Even before success catapulted him into the limelight, Salk was an inscrutable man disliked by many of his peers. Driven by an intense desire to aid mankind, he was initially oblivious and eventually resigned to the personal cost--as well as the costs suffered by his family and friends. And yet Salk remained, in the eyes of the public, an adored hero. Based on hundreds of personal interviews and unprecedented access to Salk's sealed archives, Jacobs' biography offers the most complete picture of this complicated figure. Charlotte D. Jacobs, M.D. is the Ben and A. Jess Shenson Professor of Medicine (Emerita) at Stanford University. She has served as Senior Associate Dean and as Director of the Clinical Cancer Center, and is the author of Henry Kaplan and the Story of Hodgkin's Disease. © Oxford University Press
