Whats the worst food, nutritionally, that you've come across and willingly eaten.
Hey fellow anons, does anyone know a good cook book that basically teaches you about food the way a college course would? I love cooking and have a heap of cook books myself, but I find it frustrating that most popular cook books just limit themselves to "throw X amount of Y into the pan and cook for Z time", without explaining why you need X amount and how you define Z time. I know a lot of cooking is learnt by doing, but I was wondering if there are any cook books that generally teach you about cooking theory?
Yep, that. Or, "The Professional Chef", which is literally a college textbook. The current version is expensive but you can get prior versions (just as good) on Amazon (or other used bookstore) for a fraction of the price.

Anyone else know this feel?
>>I'm trying to lose weight so I can't eat it
Why? Sure, you can't pig out and eat an entire pie in one sitting, but there's no reason you can't eat reasonable portions of the pastries you make.
Do you have a job? Bring the stuff to work and give it to coworkers or just leave it in the office/breakroom/whatever. You could also donate it to a bake sale, fundraiser, etc.
What's the matter? Don't want your corn chips to taste like tacos?
What's /ck/'s Soya Sauce? A lot of the store brands or basic brand names seem salty as fuck. Like, way too salty even for soya sauce.
I've tried, apple, mango, banana, pineapples,
I've tried figs, kiwi, lychee and their cousins
Peaches, nectarines, cherries.
Some strawberries, blackberries and grapes
But nothing compares to ripe juicy pears.
Favorite fruit thread and why!
I like dark juicy cherries and ripe peaches. The kind you can smell from across the room. That said, I once bought strawberries that tasted like strawberry candy. It was hard to believe that something that grew naturally could have that intense a flavor.
Oh, what's this? Could it be the return of a legendary Mountain Dew flavor?
How about I elevate them with something superior?
Do you dress your board /ck/?
Just saw this video of Jamie Oliver doing it and it looks fucking tasty.
Oop. Video here.
Hey /ck. So, I've decided I'm gonna make some seabass, served with basmati rice, langoustines, prawns, chiffonade of red cabbage and speck, white wine sauce, beetroot and broccoli.
Then I decided to challenge myself; I bought a giantass knife a while ago that I don't use for anything except carving meats because it's too clumsy. But fuck that! It was expensive! I'm going to use this 13-inch bowie knife to do all the prep for this dish, and see how it turns out. This might turn into a gore thread. Wish me luck!
>he buys basmati in a small bag instead of a 5kg sack
>that feeling when you will most likely never try one of these
What is the best brand of premade mayonnaise?
How's that hangover, /ck/?
>how are you medicating?
I quit smoking weed because my last roommate would literally threaten to have me arrested every time something didn't go his way (crumbs on the toaster means he's literally going to call the cops on me for smoking weed), now I've moved away from that and my dealers have been dry for a good while. So I've been drinking. It's not as fun, it gives me a hangover, it makes it harder to wake up, but I really can't just be sober in my free time. I wish I could get weed again, I've been looking. It's just so much less of a time investment, you...

Hey guys, I am autistic.
And I have a question.
What do you answer to people who say the food you made is good or delicious or something like that?
I am reluctant to say thank you because there is no reason to be grateful for their gratefulness, which is what they want to express as I assume.
So I usually go with a smile or "I am glad that you like it" or so... and it sounds weird to me.
A ridiculous question I guess. But it bothers me.
What does /ck/ think of this miniature pizza?
Help me /ck/ you are my only hope.
Actually I am looking for input on what I should make first in my new smoker.
Yesterday I purchased one of those Pit Barrel Smokers and it should be arriving later this week and I was wondering what would be easiest to smoke first.
My local Costco has the cheapest prices on meat around the area and has pork shoulder, prime brisket, baby back ribs, and St. Louis style ribs.
Which of the choices would be good for a first time user of a smoker to make?
A pretty typical recipe would be:
Make a dry rub from equal parts brown sugar, coarse salt, and paprika. Rub this all over the meat.
Put the pork shoulder in the smoker with the fat side up and smoke for about 6 hours at about 250F. At that point take the meat out of the smoker, wrap it in foil, then put it back for another hour or two until it's fall-apart tender.
Pull the pork, then sauce it.
