What are some times food changed the course of history
Throughout the entire period of the Famine, Ireland was exporting enormous quantities of food. Cormac O'Grada points out that, in Ireland before and after the famine, "Although the potato crop failed, the country was still producing and exporting more than enough grain crops to feed the population. But that was a 'money crop' and not a 'food crop' and could not be interfered with.
It is a shame but they would have been kicked off the farms and small holdings if they didn't sell it. Only after did the Tenant agreement laws actually help them defend their livelihoods.
If I remember correctly
Redpill me on Fish Oil /ck/.
Is it just a meme or does it actually provide health benefits?
what kind of stuff that says "refridgerate after opening" is actually safe to eat without refridgerating? I'm eating some jelly now that's been sitting on my counter for 3 months, and earlier I ate some horseradish sauce that had been out for about as long. I feel ok now but am I going to get botulism and food poisoning later?
some stuff like sausage and cheese doesn't even make sense, since it was invented as a way to preserve food before refridgeration was invented.
Kitchen scales, co/ck/s
What do you use? My old scales died recently, and I'm looking to get a new one.
I'd like something accurate to tenths of a gram, with a max weight of, say, 2-5 kilos. 0.1g accuracy because I'd like to be able to measure yeast and other things that are used in tiny amounts, and my old scales were only accurate to about 5g.

I'm not sure if this should be on /diy/ or /ck/, but I need help making some fake bones; enough to produce a rough approximation of a human skeleton.
Back story: my brother and I do Sunday night dinner together most weeks as a way to keep up with each other. We alternate turns cooking each week. Over a couple of years, we've both developed some decent cooking and presentation skilz, and have tried to out do each other several times. Easter is going to be my next turn.
Suffice it to say, neither of us are religious people. Even still, I'm planning a religious themed easter dinner. Basically, I want to build a human corpse to represent jesus, and then the different courses would be served from the corpse directly. For example, I want to cut the head open with a dremel (largely for show, not much real cutting) and remove the 'brain' to serve as a pate and crackers course. I want to slice in to the abdomen (and a plastic bag concealed within) and scoop out the contents to serve as a Ramen with mixed vegetable course. Etc...
Anyway, I have this recipe for 'fauxtex' which will make plenty of fake skin to cover the corpse with. I really just need an easy and cheap way to make the skeleton. I don't even need a whole skeleton; I'm thinking just a long spine section, the rib cage, and the pelvis. The serving area is only so big. I already have a plastic skull that I can make the head out of.
I guess my real question is how can I make the rib cage and pelvis? It has to be accuratly shaped enough so that when you drape the fake skin over it, the final appearence is real enough. Can I make some plaster of Paris casts for the ribs? Can I use animal bones avaliable at the butcher? Can I do a little of both and fuse them together somehow? I looked up plastic skeletons that I could disassemble, but the cheapest one that looked like it would do the job was $100 and out of stock. I tried party city, but they don't have anything Halloween at this time of year.
Edgy. Make sure to draw some pentagrams in edible ink, that will really show how your dad totally can't force you to go to church anymore and you're totally beyond the whole religion thing.
Not trying to be edgy. I'm not going around bragging about this or anything, I just actually do need some help building the chest and pelvis. Given my brother's obsession with the show Hannibal, I get the idea that simulated cannibalism might not be objectionable to him. Frankly, I've always had an inexplicable disdain for religion too. Moreover, if I can pull this off, it will definitely be the most technically difficult presentation I've ever done. If I can't get this done within a week,...

Anything weird i could have on porridge?

>Don't even like it anymore, but i'm dependent, maybe even addicted
>Cereal tastes shit to me now.
Pic unfortunately related; the bland chunky devil jizz i eat every morning.
I know this probably doesn't help, but my flyover brain immediately asked "Has he tried adding ranch?"
I hope to god it doesn't work.
My family is 5th generation Scottish heritage.
You're full of shit, if you really were from Scotland you'd know the whiskey is called Scotch not Scot.
So what's the actual difference between western Chinese food, and Chinese actually in China?
If I went to a typical Chinese restaurant in Beijing or wherever, would I be able to order, say, tofu or chicken in black bean, satay, szechuan or sweet and sour sauce, with a side of beansprout noodles, spring rolls and curry sauce?
That depends on where you are in "the west", because people from different parts of china moved to "the west" at different times in history. So if you are in flyover USA with a bunch of people of probably cantonese descent who can't even speak chinese, serving up chop suey or whatever because you don't know any better, it's going to be different than what you might get in a flushing mall basement from a fuzhou style restaurant, or in peru from a chifa joint.
I assume since...

What's your secret shame, /ck/? That dish that barely makes the definition of food that nobody else likes but you eat and actually enjoy?
Pic is mine. Love those shitty, processed rat testicles.
How the hell did this nu-male-looking piece of shit get to be so ridiculously popular? I've heard his place in Texas has like 3 hour long lines and this dude is the most un-southern guy you could imagine.
What the fuck is the deal?
Who are your favourite TV/Youtube chefs?
I started last night.
a shitload of pork butt
red and green cabbage
ancho chile powder
and a bunch more stuff...
shredded the carrots, julienned the poblanos
would it be weird to go there and order 3 or 4 crazy breads and thats it?
Do you eat in the parking lot /ck/?
I find it's more comfortable
Anyone here managed to cut processed sugar out of their diet?
