Is it a meme or is it the best cookware?
Are there any good books on learning the basics of baking? I can follow a recipe and all that trash but I want to get to the point where I can make my own cake or bread or pastry dough/batter recipes while knowing what every ingredient i.e. the flour or the baking powder, does.
For what you are describing, I reccomend On Baking. It is a textbook and it explains everything. If you are serious about baking and want the most consistent results, buy a food scale. Get one that interchanges from metric and imperial units.
Is pork peasant food?

I've got a ribeye that i need to cook, any help would be appreciated.
What the fuck does /ck/ think about water cakes????????
Is the "raw food" diet trend legit?
Watched "Food Matters" in Netflix and it seems like a lot of mumbo jumbo. These scientists talk about studies that indicate the health benefits of vitamins and raw foods but fail to provide any sources.
Isn't the general consensus that the only reason humans evolved such big brains is because of cooking food and making the calories easier to digest. Which is why other animals spend all day eating and resting while they digest.
I know very little about food safety and I have what might be a stupid question.
>use tongs to turn meat over
>tongs have therefore touched uncooked meat
>use same tongs to remove the meat and put it on a plate
is this bad? seems like people do this all the time, but am i supposed to wash the tongs before i use them again?
also, general food safety questions thread.
That's what happens with virtually every piece of meat you've ever ordered at a restaurant.
It's easy enough to avoid doing at home, but there's very little chance it's going to make you sick.
Just touching uncooked meat is very unlikely to hurt anything. Wash the tongs after you're done using them, but no need to wash them while the meat is cooking or whatever. If you're really germaphobic, just quickly wipe them down with a paper towel.
>is this bad?
>seems like people do this all the time
Yep, you are correct.
Keep in mind that food safety rules are all about managing risk, there's never a certainty that something will or won't make someone sick.
You faggots will argue a better pickle.
just got back from a trip to the atlantic
anyone on /ck/ harvest mollusks?
Hey cu/ck/s I have a cold coming on any of you lovely people have any good soup recipes for when you're feeling under the weather?
Fuck soup. Go get yourself a stupidly spicy takeaway. Either a chicken curry of some sort, or some sort of chinese chicken dish. Just make sure it's spicy and hot, so it clears your sinuses out.
This desu. I eat screaming-hot food when I get sick because it clears out the sinuses and keeps your throat from getting all gunky with phlegm. If you've got your heart set on soup I'd say to spring for a big bowl of pho and dump in as much chili garlic sauce as you can stand in addition to the sliced peppers.
ITT: We post one thing our parents made that can't be beat.
>Just How Mamma used to Make It
chips = potato wedges
crisps = in a bag of Lay's
fries = what you get at fast food restaurants
We're never going to have a sticky, but if we did a basic english to English food dictionary would prevent a lot of butthurt from bongs thinking their little island uses the correct terminology.
>bread in the middle
What kind of fucked up meme is this?
I made some spicy chicken nuggets today. Feedback/comments appreciated. How do y'all make your chicken spicy? I added a ton of cayenne to the grounded up chicken and I added siracha to the egg in the dredging process. The nugs were spicy but not that spicy.
Getting them all battered up. I put a lot of cayenne and some salt and pepper in the grounded chicken. I used bread crumbs, egg and siracha. No flour because I'm lazy and don't feel like it really does anything if you are using bread crumbs.
I normally make a spicy sauce rather than making the nuggets themselves spicy. That way people can choose how spicy they will be by how much (or what kind of) sauce they use. It also helps keep the oil in the fryer clean longer; I've found that if you strongly season the batter or breading on fried food a lot of that flavor goes into the oil.
>want to make it spicy
>wasn't that spicy
no shit. sriracha is trash "babies first spicy thing that mostly tastes like sugar" sauce
