Do you ever visit restaurants alone?
Most restaurants are really hostile against loners asking for a table for one. :(
Wtf, should we singles avoid restaurants and eat at home? I wanna eat good food and drink a bottle of good wine, sitting at my table for one and enjoying my fine dining ffs.
No respectable dining establishment is going to turn away a customer because he or she is alone. The only type of restaurant I would never go to alone would be a more up-scale, classier kind of place frequented by families. If it's more of a casual or bar & grill type place, no one gives a fuck. Especially is you sat at the bar and eat.
Do Europeans get excited when they see American candy?
>Do Europeans get excited
their grannies do when they see one of these
many a Euro gran got growed up quick (wink wink) as a young girl to get one of these delicious chocolate bars as the Allies headed for Berlin
Afternoon my /ck/ulinary friends, and happy Sunday. The weekend isn't quite over yet but the onset and dread of Monday is slowly creeping into the back of our minds. No better way to stave that feeling than with some cooking, and today is a treat. I've been wanting to make these buns for a while and finally arsed myself to do it. So come and join me for either a rousing and delicious success, or a failure and only semi-delicious defeat.
Posting live from the kitchen.
Beverage for today is tall bottle of Lost Abbey's Red Ale.
As far as craft beers go it's one of my tops.
Yeah the market I go to usually has crazy good deals on pork and chicken. Their red meat is priced like anywhere else though, you'd be hard pressed to find decent beef at a good price anymore. It's become a rare indulgence for a lot of people, myself included.
We're going to be braising our pork with some diced carrots, shallots and purple garlic, then topping it with the remaining jar of the homemade beef broth we made the other week. It'll go into the oven for a few hours to get nice...

I was planning on cooking a chicken dish with my mom and she suggested to marinade the chicken. I laughed at her and told her that marinading chicken for more than 0-10 minutes is just a meme. She got pissed. Who is right /ck/?
Are insects a meme or do they actually taste good?
Should I get a bag of insects to prank my mates?

Why even live?
Why aren't you grilling out doors right now? What is your excuse?
What's the big deal with pizza? How many people of us are there in this world that actually don't like it (not counting people who can't because of health issues)?
I NEED TO CONFIRM THIS. Pizza is evil I say,eeevil!
You're on death row about to be executed: What will you request for your last meal?
an assortment of battered and fried food.
french fries, onion rings, fried chicken, tendies, nuggers, fish sticks, popcorn shrimp, hushpuppies.

Ask a guy who works at Chick-fil-A anything.
They say it was amazing that humans learned to drink cows' and goats' milk: "I think I'll pull on that animal's dangly things and drink what comes out." What's even more amazing is that they discovered cheese. "Hey, I think I'll eat this solidified and congealed animal fluid that's been sitting here for days growing this blue mold."
Yes, though probably in actuality they happened around the same time, they would have transported the milk in bags made from the stomach and etc which coincidentally contain rennet, the enzyme responsible for making cheese. Early cheese was simply the milk shaken up in the stomach bag and then the curds and whey strained out.
I mean, we drink human milk as infants, and we would know pretty quickly that calves drink their mothers milk from those tits, it's not a huge jump to "maybe we can drink it too"
and cheese isn't that gross, we don't think it's gross because it's full of bacteria (in the case of blue cheese, also fungus) that don't harm us and out-compete bacteria and other microbes that would harm us. Most likely people just left milk out, because where else would you put it, and often it turns into curds and whey and our ancestors saw it and learned...

My roommate and I are having an argument. Hopefully you can solve it?
What is the best pizza topping combo /ck/? (maximum 5 toppings, we aren't millionaires!)
I like ham and pineapple. If it's a special pizza, I sometimes change it up with added mushrooms, but H&P is my go-to.
>italian beef (italian beef slices and giardineria)
>bacon, jalapeno, pineapple
>white sauce, chicken, onions, mushrooms
Highly recommend the first, it's never on the menu, but if they sell Italian beef sandwiches, then they can usually swing it.
Do you cut the root off of your garlic clove or do you not give a shit?
My roommate thought I was being picky for removing it. Am I a dandy or is he a philistine?
well normally when I need minced garlic I cut it like pic related and then cut across, stopping just before that part.
Sup /sp/ here. I am tired of getting raped in the ass by stadium beer prices so I am thinking of taking a growler with me to funnel beer and chug in the parking lot before the game.
Would the beer get all fucked up if I put it in the trunk of my car. Would I get ass fucked if I cop pulled me over and found the growler full of beer in the trunk?
I live in the desert and I dont think meme binoculars would keep shit cold very well. Also I think a growler would pass as a normal water bottle very well but I think a cop would fuck with me if he saw me drinking from binoculars
