Anybody else know this feel?
What is your honest opinion on Gordon Ramsay, /ck?
His reality shows give me epileptic seizures(Hell's Kitchen), but his YT channel is great, and he seems like a cool guy; despite some of his appearances on-screen.
Check out his AMA, for example.
I love his stuff, and he actually motivated me to cook more.

Share some tips on how you take better pictures of food you have made.
For me it's a matter of economics and health. I can feed myself delicious food that's pretty healthy for $5 a day if I cook. If I go out that will barely get me one meal, and I'd be lucky if it were healthy. So I cook.
I put ketchup on my well done steak AMA

Why do Californians think the only allowed flavors are pure oak and mega purple?
inb4 no TRUE california wine tastes like literally pure oak and mega purple, inb4 muh judgment of paris
Let's be real here. California does to wine what Wisconsin does to cheese. Anyone who actually wants to drink good American wine buys Washington, Oregon, or New York wines. Or just drinks something imported from Europe.
Because American palates aren't able to detect anything but simple, loud, and vulgar. See also: American ideas about "good beer". Subtle does not work when your potential customers grew up eating McDonald's and coca-cola.
Why do people like jelly when this is superior?
Do you like goat cheese? (please, not GOAT cheese, goat cheese)
I'm a fan of it
I once when to a party with a cheese plate that had goat cheese stuffed with fig jam
more accurately, it was a party with a cheese plate that had me standing next to it cramming fig jam stuffed goat cheese into my face
What's a good way to use fake crab?
No I didn't buy it, before the insults and >implications come rolling in. A half a bag (about 4 ounces or 113 grams) of it was left in my fridge by a family member who doesn't know any better.
Works excellent in a salad with some Old Bay sprinkled on top, fresh lemon juice and a remoulade dressing. At the risk of irking the board, they are also pretty good wrapped in bacon and quickly deep fried, optional jalapeno and cream cheese.

Slice up some onions. Guess what I'm making?
How does /ck/ make risotto? I found some arborio rice in the pantry and this is the go-to use for it, but I'm nervous about fucking up anything more complex than basic chicken stock/Parmesan/peas. Any simple suggestions or recommendations?
What's your signature dish and what would Chef Ramsay say about it?
I make a mean pasta, I guess.
I boil up some pasta, I bake up some salmon, chop it up, throw spinach in there, add some lemon juice, let that rinse a bit, then throw it all together in one pan and add herb cheese and some sambal.
He'd probably think it's OK
