Why do people say "Never trust a skinny chef?" I know there are fat people who can cook out there but it seems like even if you leave out Martha Stewart/Food Network type garbage most famous or talented chefs are in decent shape.
There is literally no correlation between a chef's taste and/or skill and how much he eats.
Any good chef should be tasting food all day long, but also burning even more calories running around getting things done.
I'M GONNA NEED A ONE WAY TICKET TO FLAVOR TOWN STAT!

Practice and paying your time in hard labor are the only real "secrets". For home cooks buy the best ingredients you can, avoid Rachel ray products and only get k ware at reputable kitchen stores, organization is massively important. Taste everything, read as much as you can about cooking and immerse yourself in it & you'll be a much better natural cook than by copying from others
i want to get a book that gets me more into cooking, so not just a recipe collection but something that teaches basic and techniques. Any recommendations?

When's the last time you made French bread pizza?
Pic related. I threw this together last night since I realized I had everything needed for it. It was pretty good!
Well, that's the problem with French bread pizza. The dough itself is already cooked. So you can only leave it in the oven so long before it burns, and usually this means you won't get nicely browned cheese like you have on a regular pizza.
Anything better than these rolled in butter? Nah
What's the longest you've ever spent making a single dish?
