Our resident food scientist, Constantine Spyrou, joined The Katchup to explore his controversial article questioning lettuce's importance in the food world.
From its susceptibility to bacteria, negative effects on the environment, and lack of nutritional value, Spyrou makes his case on why lettuce should be "eradicated from the face of the earth." More importantly, he has drawn the ire of Foodbeast founder Elie Ayrouth, in the process.
Lettuce has become a key fabric to American cooking, and the thought of its usefulness has never really been questioned, until now.
Elie and Constantine had a heated back and forth in this episode, while Geoff Kutnick acted as moderator for a topic we didn't know would cause such a ruckus.
