Hows this look?
What kinds of meats/cheese should I buy for a tapas platter like pic related?
Hey guys. I just went to the store and one of the things I got was some cholula hotsauce. I ususally go with tapatio because it's pretty good and really cheap but I wanted to mix it up. After I use up this bottle of cholula I want to try something I haven't tried before. What are some of your favorite hotsauces? If my store carries it I'll try it out
what eat now /ck/?
start scotch egg
Hey anons, does anyone have any idea how to cook chicken the way they do it in asian restaurants? Take for example the chicken you get with nasi goreng. Its colour is white (beige-ish), but no traces that it was grilled in a pan. Then again, it's incredibly juicy. So that leaves steaming or deep frying it. How?
I recently ended up with a shit load of scallions. What can I do with them?
Is there a wiki on /ck/? Looking for vegetarian, college food. Preferably easy to make in bulk on Sunday and use for the week.
I'm Indian so I've tried several Indian dishes and dhal seems to work all right, but cooking rice every day is a hassle. Idea in next post.
I've also tried some other stuff like chili, which turns out all right, and any number of stews, which all turned out terrible.
I also considered making wraps (lavash, hummus, sriracha, a ton of vegetables), but the daily fresh vegetable cutting takes a long time here.
One thing I haven't tried is stir fry or vegetables from a bag at the supermarket yet. I'm going to do that today.
Any general suggestions guys?
Idea for speeding up rice cooking:
on Sunday, leave water and rice in pot. It doesn't hurt to soak the rice, right?
Buy a small Servo and attach it to the rice cooker's lever, back it up with my server, write up a quick web front-end, that allows me to switch it up or down remotely. Turn it on before getting home.
After I'm done, clean it and replace with rice and water again if I want to eat the next day.
Are there any problems with soaking the rice for so long? Is this a viable idea?
Is it ok to order delivery in a snowstorm /ck/?
A few times but probably only by accident.
Are these the two most butthurt countries when it comes to their food?
>no man you just don't get it you've got to have REAL AUTHENTIC cuisine made by a street vendor's unwashed hands you Americans probably think Taco Bell is real Mexican food you just don't get it the real thing is so much different you know
People need to learn that authentic doesn't mean better, most of my favorite Mexican/Italian dishes are fusion or Americanized versions
As a Mexican I bitch about mexican food because it makes me pretty mad that there are foreigners who think shit like fucking Dorito tacos is genuine mexican and then proceed to call it shit because they have never seen actual mexican food, just heart-clogging tex-mex fast food. Just as a reminder, WE DON'T FRY OUR FUCKING TORTILLAS TO MAKE TACOS, unless it's explicitly tacos dorados or literally fried tacos.
I imagine Italians feel the same way, but at least the fast-food version of Italian is still fairly dignified.
How do you cook with wine?
I watch a lot of cooking shows and all of them deglaze their pans with wine before making a sauce or just add wine to pasta sauces or might mix it with broth and cook meat in it... I don't get it.
I cook a chicken breast, deglaze with red wine, and my whole kitchen begins to smell like shit. I evaporate the alcohol, then it's just a caramelized mess. I use dry wines, too, it shouldn't be too sweet for this to happen.
I'll start deglazing with stock to cool the pan off then add wine. Otherwise you can really ruin the flavor or reduce too quickly.
The keys are understanding how little it takes to achieve the profile you want and that wine takes time be "cooked out" and for flavonoids in things like tomatoes to bee pulled out since some of them are strictly alcohol soluble.
Does sturgeon kaviar taste like salmon roe? I've had salmon roe before and 2bh didn't like it.
No. It's much less salty and has a more rich and buttery taste to it. No fishiness either. Completely different.
There is a reason why people can just gorge on this shit. It's highly addicting to eat.
I just realized the chicken I ate was undercooked.
What do I do?
Soft drinks/beverages that you like but most others don't
People don't like Voltage?
For me it's probably Club Mate. Most people say it tastes like warm piss filtered through hay and I dunno I guess it's kind of accurate but it's still nice for whatever reason.
