You Maniacs! You blew it up! Ah, damn you! God damn you all to hell!
It has come to my attention that eating pic related is not ok.
We don't have this in my country and I started buying it a lot because I think it's really good, but my roommate has advised me that it's nutritionally worthless and that eating it is a sign of poor upbringing.
Can any Americans explain this to me?
p.s. I was told to buy kale instead. I said what about cabbage and she said that's the same thing as lettuce.
iceberg lettuce is mostly crunch water. Not great, not bad. Refreshing if that's what you're after.
Kale has more nutrients and has been elevated to superfood level. Tastes like ass, I personally can only stand it if I wilt it down in something nice and spicy to hide it in. I do not understand the people who chug it down as a smoothie.
Cabbage has a lot nutrients (Cruciferous Vegetables family and all that)... tastes decent, more versatile, IMHO.
Guys I have to make dessert for like 60 people. Any recommendations? It would have to be simple, economic and tasty without looking cheap.
I'm craving the shit out of a sandwich right now but I'm with my mom for spring break and she has no mayo. How do I make it myself and/or what can I use instead?
This thread is for posting your favorite shows not necessarily about cooking rather shows or movies that are about food. Pic related is a great documentary about how Chinese food has been influenced by American culture.
All I got from that documentary was the Chinese think they invented fortune cookies and the actual inventor of General Tso's chicken is a Taiwanese guy who thinks the Burgerland version sucks.
Can I ferment soda into alcohol?
What are other uses of dill except fish? In my country i can only think of traditional non-fish dish where it is a main ingredient (a kind of meat stew wth dill and vinegar). I've tried using it in other stuff it doesn't really fit in anything that i've made.
I really like the flavor of gochujang, but i have issues getting it to mix into things well because its so viscous.
Best way to thin it/mix it in without messing things up? Ive tried mixing it with a little bit of hot water but only works for some applications
Is this the sort of thing you'd want to use for a stir fry? There's this thai resturant near me that has a dish called chile paste noodles, and I want to try and make something similar. Sorry I can't answer your question.
What would be the difference between a slow cook in sous vide and slow cook in an oven at the same temperature
The point of a sous vide is to bring food up to a uniform temperature throughout
In an oven, the convection heating would make that extremely slow, so you use higher temperatures to accelerate heat transfer and therefore create a heat gradient in the food
Yep. Most ovens have horrible temperature stability, especially at low temperatures. The point of sous vide is accurate control of temperature in a range that's below most oven cooking.
How does /ck/ feel about hot dogs? Are they childish? Normally I eat pretty well but I just now made the most basic hot dog ever and it has a certain allure. Plain bun, Hebrew National dog I grilled on a panini press, plain yellow mustard, ketchup, and dill relish. It isn't mind blowing or something I'd want all the time but I'm a little surprised how good and fulfilling it actually is.
I'm planning to buy a Himalayan salt block for my dad as a birthday gift. Is it actually a good cooking method? Do any of you have one? I'd like to hear some opinions.
>Is it actually a good cooking method?
Depends on what you mean, really. Can you cook on it? Sure. Is it anything special? No, not really. It's no different than cooking on a rock, thick metal plate, flat pan, or griddle except that it adds a tiny bit of salt to your food.
>Allergic to eggs
>Taco bell is one of the few places I can easily order from because they don't have eggs on the menu
>They start with this breakfast shit
So don't order breakfast?
The eggs don't get all over and into everything, unlike the cold ingredients.
>guy comes in
>asks for no lettuce
>comes back and shits on everybody because there were a few flakes of lettuce in his taco
>his daughter is "allergic to lettuce"
there's lettuce in fucking everything because of how they have bins you're supposed...

Why is lengua considered cheap when i can only find it at like 10-15$ a pound?
Am i looking in the wrong places? ive checked a variety of markets and butchers and 10.99$ was the cheapest i found
I remember when stuff like ox tail and beef shanks where dirt cheap, like, 2$ a lb max. Now everyone is all about "muh marrow bones" and "muh stews" so theyarked that shit up way more than its really worth.
Fuck I miss my ox tail and root vegetable stew and my braised beef shank
Has anyone ever made their own smoked pork belly?
Thanks for the warning, saved giving "him" a viewer revenue
Tell me what you know about them.
If it was mentioned in passing, if you've actually eaten them, I want to hear about it.
I just discovered Mint Potatoes myself. Weird, but it works...
