What's your GERD trigger, /ck/?
Pic related is mine.
What is your opinion on Sodium glutamate and other flavor potentiators?
I was shoked when the chinese clerk at my local supermarket told me he and many chinese people buy it and add it to their home made foods instead of salt or spices.
It's not dangerous or toxic or anything, but I find that it doesn't taste as good as the traditional shit it intends to replace. I'd rather use fermented black beans, dobanjiang, soy sauce, hard cheeses like Parmigiano-reggiano, fish sauce, etc, for that taste. Those are more flavorful than plain 'ol MSG.
This pretty much. If you're strapped for time and cash and don't really give a fuck, go ahead and use it, but a spoonful of fish sauce or a stock made with parmesean rinds or somesuch will get you further in the flavor department.
One thing it is really good for is seasoning your dredge for fried foods. Fried chicken, queso frito, scotch eggs and the like all benefit from it.
Anyone got any good recipes for homemade mozzarella sticks?
I'd rather put that in the sauce. Adding herbs to the breading is kinda silly, IMHO. The heat involved destroys a lot of the flavor, and it also tends to contaminate your frying oil more than leaving them out.
What do you think of (giant) sandwiches, /ck/?
What is your favorite sandwich?
i do not like giant sandwiches. sandwiches are about ratios, and increasing the size of sandwiches fucks up those ratios. giant burgers exemplify this food scaling problem. keep sandwiches the size they were intended to be, that's my advice to you anon.
I didn't know if this should be here or on /fit/, but whatever I will get to the point.
So I just want to eat healthier, not get on a diet, but eat things that will be good for my body.
Sadly I was never exposed to healthy foods in the past and I am too cheap to make elegant shit. Any ideas would be really helpful, thanks.
>Thinks eating healthy is elegant.
Stop eating your potato chips and have some low sodium pretzels.
Don't drink sodas or energy drinks.
Make your own sandwiches with lots of vegetables and good meats.
Lots of fruits, vegetables, and nuts.
This shit is easy.
Any vegetable cooked in garlic, oil and salt
also please PLEASE dry your veggies
you're making a stir fry not soup
unless its hard shit like broccoli and root veggies just add a bit of water to steam it up a bit
Question about scotch. I'm just a beginner in whiskey drinking and I have decided to give a try for a scotch. But then I saw, that there are numerous types of scotch regions, like highlands, Islay, Speyside. The question- should I care about these regions when buying scotch? Do they give some knowledge, like how scotch will taste like? Also, is pic related good stuff?
Then Google your ass off. Lots of info on the web.
Go to Scotland, go on tours.
Find a good bar in the area, make friends with the bartender.
Taste, taste, taste,
The specific differences between Whisky Whiskey Bourbon and Scotch and nearly endless, and sometimes totally irrelevant.
Personally my cheap go-to is Bullit Rye.
Related to this, I will be going to Scotland for about 5 days with access to a car. Suggestions on distilleries that anyone has seen or wants to see? Other things like castles and nature are also appreciated.
When I was a kid, I always referred to pic related as a "chip burger" and indeed, googling that term brings them up. However, I can't seem to find any company that actually refers to them as such.
Where did that term come from?
What do you cu/ck/s call them?
Why do the unripe lemons always cost more than ripe lemons at the grocery store? This is true at most greengrocers, too. I can't figure it out.
>Feeling hungry as fuck
>Tempted to drive down to McDonald's
What do you do about late night cravings?
When you think about it, Cincinnati Chili is a pretty great idea. Most people eat chili with beans, beans aren't a complete protein without a brain, and only a minority regularly eat chili with bread. So just plop it on top of pasta! It makes the chili last longer AND improves its nutritional value. It's a flawless idea.
Anyone else on here distill their own spirits?
I finally got round to building my still a couple of months ago after a lot of research. Started off by running some cheap and nasty wine to make high proof brandy and get used to making the cuts.
Since then I've done two runs of corn whiskey that came out at 140 proof and 150 proof each.
Currently waiting on 40 litres of blackstrap/brown sugar rum wash fermenting in the garage.
I can't go back to shop bought spirits now I've started this. They smell like the shit I throw down the sink.
I was bouncing around on youtube and wound up watching a documentary about Popcorn Sutton. Next video after it was this vid https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SfOL60CsF9U That's what put the notion in my head so I started looking up the home distillers forums and making notes.
This guy uses a similar setup to me on a slightly larger scale https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P-nGbAf81Zs
And this guy has some great vids for beginners and will answer questions in the comments. https://www.youtube.com/user/wcemichael/videos

Is Gordon Ramsay's "Then when you need it, you just take the paste out and make a curry! It's that simpuuull" claim a meme? I'm finally cooking for myself and it sounds like I should just eat curry most nights.
Why would you talk about a food, and then post some retarded bastardization of it drawn in a sickeningly bad art style? I mean, I'm trying to eat here, and I have to see this awful shit on my screen; you might as well just post gore at this point.
Also, your question makes no sense. Is curry paste a meme? Are you literally retarded? Why are weebs so fucking stupid 100% of the time? Of course curry paste isn't a fucking meme; it's an ingredient.
Going to a beach house this weekend with about 20 or so friends, and was wondering if you guys had any ideas for alcoholic snacks/treats that go well in a party atmosphere.
I'm going to post a few infopics that I've saved to bump the thread
haven't tried this drink,but tbqh sounds gross
here's your (you) faggot
Behold! I was forced to cook meatbread for my birthday. It contains 2 pounds of beef, a pound of sausage, two cans of mushrooms, a half pound of chopped green onions, one whole package of bacon, a pound of sharp cheddar Velveeta, a half pound of mozarella, a half pound of shredded sharp cheddar, and one can of peas all wrapped in 3 loaves of bread.

>raclette cheese on hotdog
>the grilled cheese from Chef
>that asian chick eating ungodly amounts
>surly king of the eggfort
If you can't make webms or dont know how link the video and ill make it for you
