Okay, I am a food novice and don't have a very refined palette. So laugh at me all you want, but I seriously want to know: is pic related Salmon? It was stated at the restaurant that I bought it from that it is in fact Salmon, but I have heard stories of restaurants swapping it out for Tuna instead? Is that true? Any stories to share?

Potato baking in the oven at this very moment. Cheddar, butter, bacon, chives and sour cream. Six pack and a cigar while I wait. Listening to sports talk radio. Jose Bautista got his clock cleaned by Texas Rangers 2nd basemen, R. Odor.
What are some tasty and easy meals you can make yourself and then freeze for later? I've been having good success with freezing my own burritos.
Ill be a bit honest with myself...despite working in many top establishments I really have no fucking clue what the trends are. I want to bring this lady I like out but I don't know where to bring her that would really WOW here...but I don't even know what places are impressive to bring someone to. I'm not looking for a specific restaurant maybe just a type of place what cuisine is really going right now?
>Foods that need dipping sauces to taste good
Why even bother eating the food in the first place?
Why the fuck is the cuisine of the americas (outside of Mexico and Peru) so bland and uninteresting?
Yeah, nothing but boring Southern food. What's up with that?
Latin America is, historically, very primitive in all regards. There isn't a lot going on ingredients-wise. The Spanish and Portuguese (with the help of the French and others) made their cuisine what it is.

Jesus Christ, I started laughing so hard I had to pause the video, he sounded dead inside when he was saying it.
What food surprised you when you first ate it?
For me it was a Elvis sandwich.
I tried to think of an answer that wasn't a sandwich, but falafel was clearly the best. I could give up meat as long as that was in there. I'd say that's a bit of a surprise, since I fit the fat Southern carnivore stereotype.
I used to buy four orders of baba ghanoush every week, but they changed the recipe. I prefer what I make at home now.
There's also this Indian-run food truck that has excellent vegetable curry and curried lentils. Honorable mention: stir-fried vegetables from Chinese takeout.
Basically, that vegetarian doesn't completely suck, but it probably is loaded with MSG and fat.
Many of you will express disgust, but this is a delicious way to run through a quick BBQ, without spending all day monitoring your meat.
Subject: Frenched Lamb
Bare with me, I'm BBQ'ing this as I post.
Pick a good wood. Lamb goes pretty good with Mesquite. You only need enough to burn for about an hour. It's not an all day thing like brisket, or ribs.
Wash off your wood to get the gunk off.
Shredded beetroot, thinly sliced onion and a little bit of oil.

Anyone else hate most pork products unless its bacon, sausage, dried sausage?
Ham is okay occasionally, pork chop, pulled pork is great. But everything else is disgusting.
No bacon at all? I've never met someone that disliked bacon other than for religious reasons or vegeginarians.
Usually it's all about crunchy vs disgusting flappy half cooked bacon.
Does /ck/ still use cutting boards on marble countertops? Does Marble or granite scratch easier when you are cutting your food during prep?
