Aside from vodka, pickles, and borschdt. What are some Russian dishes worth trying? I rarely see anything regarding their food. Bonus points if it's something I can easily cook.
I don't know many but my favorites that my grandma made are Shishliki and Piroshki:
Shishliki sounds simple but is amazing cooked over a fire or BBQ. Don't bother if you don't have a BBQ since the char is an essential part of the overall flavor.
Piroshki have fillings as pierogies do but they use a different dough that is baked instead of boiled/fried. They can be filled with pretty much any kind of mashed vegetable. Serve with melted butter and smetana/sour cream.
We usually made a whole bunch at once in different flavours:
Cottage Cheese (sweet or savory)
Potato & onion
Baked bean (I never liked these ones really)
There is also a peasant-style soup that she used to make called Zatirka or something similar. Basically it was a potato, onion and dumpling soup seasoned with salt and heavily with black pepper.
Start by making the "dumplings" - make a simple egg and flour dough seasoned with salt and pepper and pinch off small pieces onto a baking sheet. Bake at 350F or so just until they are starting to brown. Boil diced/chunked potatoes in a big pot of water. When soft, remove the potatoes; save the water as it will be used for broth. In a seperate pot, cook diced onion in butter until clear. Add about 1/3 to 1/2 of the diced potatoes and mash them lightly. Add the potato water, the remaining diced potato, and the dumpings. Cook for a little bit and season with more salt and pepper to taste. The final soup should be quite thick so you may want to add the broth last and just enough to cover the ingredients.

Any Russian table will also have a multitude of salads and breads. My favorite is шaкapaп
What are some simple things I can do with a brick of cream cheese other than spreading it on bagels? I've got like half a brick of Philadelphia and no bread to put it on and I'm bored. Any suggestions?
No. That's gross. Do people seriously do that?
i need some creative and original beer names stat
Will my senile father's collection of old styrofoam McDonald's packaging be worth anything some day, /ck/?
as dumb as it sounds it just might. There's a market for everything and with the rise in technological singularity there will also be a niche for everyone so one day you just might stumble upon a classical fast food packaging collector's webpage and you will be well equipped to reap the rewards. If not in your lifetime than at least your childs.

Good or bad, /ck/?
I know the last thing everyone wants is another fast food thread, but I am genuinely curious about Pollo Tropical. I had never heard of this place until about a month ago when they were advertising for a new location within a few miles of me. Any opinions on this place?
I just looked on the menu and there are some interesting options, but I can see these items being awful if this place is bad. But I'd love to hear some opinions on the place and your favorite order there. Thanks y'all.
They manage to have locations all over the Caribbean, so if they're selling to the people who actually eat that kind of food, they must do something right.
I live in Denver so I hadn't even heard of it before your post.
You're in luck OP, I've been going to Pollo Tropical for over 10 years.
I usually get a Tropichop, either pork or chicken, with white rice, black beans, tomatoes, and corn. Then I put salsa, that white garlic sauce, and poyo poyo sauce. Fucking awesome.
If you don't want a bowl of slop, you can't go wrong with their chicken. But seriously try their sauces, especially the poyo poyo.
Interesting observation, that is actually kind of encouraging. Enjoy Denver this time of year, I'm jealous. Between the Rockies and all the outdoor activities and your Broncos playing well, it should be a fun winter (assuming you're a NFL fan).
Thanks for the advice. I saw they have a ton of sauces so that's pretty cool. Is it kinda garbage, low quality food? Or is it a notch above your average fast food? Looks like they even have some...

I want explore more of French cuisine. I live in the States thus not all French restaurants may be very authentic thus, I am wondering what are some must try dishes.
I already had french onion soup, and creme burle
put some chocolate in the middle of a baguette
congrats you are now French
Ratatouille is fucking delicious, and easy as hell to make. Go for it, OP.
Also, pick up one of Julia Child's books. Not 100% authentic, but they're written such that a home cook could make the recipes.
There are people right now on ck that have never cut the heart our of a deer and cooked its meat within an hour of its death
Makes me sick.
There are people right now on /ck/ thar have never cut the heart out of a colleague and cooked it's meat within an hour of it's death.
Makes me sick.
Bought a piece of lamb shoulder from butchers.
WTF am I looking at? It looks like a thick slice of cheese jammed between the tissues. It even has a similar texture to it. However, it clearly a natural part of the cut.
I get that the white bits near the top of the picture are connective/fat tissues, so what is that?
I usually go with
Cilantro lime rice
All wrapped in a parachute sized tortilla
How hot do you want it, senp.ai?
