    Marinades, yogurt, Heston Blumenthal

    Although I haven't seen it, my son claims Heston Blumenthal has done MRI studies showing yogurt to accelerate marinade action into chicken... thoughts? Not much I'd want to dunk in yogurt other than poultry ...

    Some Indian dishes, like Tandoori Masala, uses yogurt in the recipe. Interesting. I think i will try it on my next Greek chicken.

    Is Heston Blumenthal someone I should know??

        It's my understanding that dairy in general is good for tenderizing.

          It's in his book-- but the experiment is a bit dicey. The MRI has trouble distinguishing flavor molecules vs water, and to see a signal they marinated at 68F (20C) for 18 hours. Which is a bacterial mosh pit. http://goo.gl/CmffLJ

          The acids in yogurt or buttermilk do tenderize the meat's exterior. MH is running tests on exactly this question.
