Herbs, spices, sauces, and other strange ingredients in the Momofuku Ssäm Bar Recipes

Ssäm Bar Recipes have even stranger ingredients than Noodle Bar Recipes based on the transglutaminase (meat glue) alone. A quick Google search showed me that I can buy a 1kg bag of Activa brand transglutaminase for $88. I’m hoping that I’ll be able to find a smaller quantity somewhere, otherwise I have the feeling that you’ll be seeing a lot of posts on frankensteinish meats soon. (I’m thinking chicken-quail-pork roulade!)
