Isn't it unfair to have the judges review each meal individually? Whichever contestant is judged last has to leave their food sitting in the cold for however long it takes for the judges to finally get around to them.
its all stage managed, they cook every dish twice, one for the "race" and then one to be judged individually, same way they did it on Iron Chef.
Although literally nothing I've ever seen on that show would be any worse for being cold or hot
Rate my food
that looks fucking disgusting, and based on the name of the picture it sounds fucking disgusting.
thai food is the second worst food after indian food. japanese comes in a close third.
Why does everyone on /ck/ try so hard to seem healthy/skinny and have to disclaimer every post in a junk related thread with "I only have this once a year but..."?
It's really annoying. This isn't /fit/.
The obesity epidemic and ignorance. Most people are trying to let everyone know they aren't fat, but don't quite understand that regularly eating small portions of dessert won't instantly make you obese. It's a complex problem.
Does /ck/ dehydrate food?
I am considering getting a food dehydrator. I pack a lot of lunches and sometimes keeping perishables cold is not a reasonable option.
My biggest concern is noise. I live in an apartment, and do not have a garage. Therefore only 1 wall will be separating me from the dehydrator. How loud are these things? Can anyone recommend a good brand/model that is quiet?
I am not looking to dehydrate an entire cow, so it does not need to be super industrial size.
They're all quiet. Your noise concern is completely unfounded.
Also, do you have an oven? You can dehydrate food in there. You don't need to buy a special "dehydrator" unless you're doing a lot of volume.
I dehydrate food in my fridge, but it takes a while.
It sounds weird, but it's 100% true.
I have green chillies home-drying right now and have home-dried egg whites, chicken stock, various veg (cabbage, carrot, celeriac, parsnip, leek) various herbs (the only one I've tried so far that doesn't dry so well is herb celery) and jerky.
The ones I've seen, not very. About as loud as a fan.
I have that exact model (with only 4 trays or so).
It's very quiet. I dehydrate a lot of fruits and beef jerky. It's nice to be able to keep food for longer while keeping the nutrients inside.
However, my smaller model cost a bit under $200, so I don't know if it is worth the cost for most people.

Memes aside, best nut right here.
All else btfo.
Staying at a friend's for a few days. Snuck down in the morning and took some pictures of his fridge and kitchen.
/ck/, I would like for you to pass judgment. Here is pic 1 of 4.
Pic 4 of 4. I'm not sure if I'll ever have a kitchen like this.
Why isn't there a lunch box with a practical utensil compartment? All of the ones Ive looked at force you to put your fork/spoon inside with your food or carry them seperately.
Time to bragg with my cooking skills (or not - you decide)
Are burgers and sandwiches the same meal but the ingredients are prepared differently?
They are both meat in between bread with vegetables.
Should I be embarrassed if I order something from the kid's menu?
I don't eat that much food and usually the kids meal will fill me up. For example, I've been going to smashburger a few times and always order the kids meal which is legitimately a decent sized burger and fries. But it is still labeled as "kids".
I think the only time someone cared is when I went to chipotle and asked for the chocolate milk.The girl there giggled at me for choosing it.

I love hamburger helper but I hate meat. Yuck, disgusting, blech. Who could stand that stuff?
So I have come up with a method for making hamburger helper without the hamburger and it's really good! Here's how we do it:
From left to right is my most favorite to my least favorite flavor. The gaps are because there's a flavor in there in that position that I've had before but I can't find it anymore.
To make hamburger helper without the hamburger, you need these items. Some are kind of obvious.
Pot roasted blade steak with root vegetables
Steak came as two extremely thin sheets, so I rolled them into joints, but since I didn't have any sort of bands or string to tie them off with, yeah they ended up sprawling out.
I like muh taters thick cut and when you cook it as long as I did, it the various types of ingredients still came to a consistent texture
Serving utensil was irrelevant, honestly, the meat was good stuff on fat distribution and was pinch-through soft by the end so I could have cut it with a blunt pencil and speared it on the tip and it wouldn't have made any difference. Yeah, I'll drink the leftover broth straight from the bowl and sop up what's left with bread, fite me
Can you define inappropriate? Too much? Too messy looking? It's not like I was making a table center dish for guests, it was just a belly filling meal made from what on hand would taste good thrown in the pot for a few hours
Does this system really work?
yeah, but it's not worth it. maybe if you've got all the time in the world to kill, fucking your fingers up for days with garlic smell that won't come off no many how many times I wash
you can get fine mince so much more quickly without the terrible lasting smell
