Whiskey General thread
Its about that time again and I may not be in the Fuck You Florida Coast, but I will for sure be losing power in a few days. What are some good tips and cooking methods without electricity? I dont want to be eating dried ramen and peanut butter and limoncello exclusively.
Should I be marathoning Jas. videos right now?
Mine is spaghetti and meatballs.
Why don't young women know how to cook anymore?
The last 3 girls I've dated (18, 20, 21) could barely make an omelette and I ended up cooking 90% of the time.
How do I make these tasty without smothering them with salt, butter or cheese? Also, what preparation method?
Slice one head of broccoli into bite sized pieces, set in very shallow water in a seal-able pot. Turn heat to HIGH and cover for 4min. DO NOT OPEN DURING COOKING!
a tiny bit of salt
your meal is ready!
>poor as fuck college student that barely makes rent each month
>my monthly food budget ranges from 15 to 40 dollars a month depending on how well tips are
Is there a feasible way I can subsist on this kind of budget while still being able to cook healthy food that'll last a month or more?
I'm struggling to afford cheap lean meats and ingredients for good pastas (make my own sauce, I'm not a fag). Vegetables and fruit are practically impossible given the current price of produce.
Any tips? Any of you guys on /ck/ ever have to live this? How did you succeed?
go to food drives, you'd be surprised what rich people will donate, stuff like name brands, speaking of brands, but store brand tend to be cheaper with similar result. I buy best value ric..everything when i can. Meats are indefinitely harder to get good deals unless u live at the super market and know when they mark down, so id recommend butchers, most times they are cheaper. Or be lazy and live on ramen soup
What's the worst experience you've ever had in a restaurant?
Anything counts, from food to other diners to waitstaff, I just want to hear your stories.
I ordered a burger amd cheese fries at this steakhouse one time, and I usually don't cut my burgers in half to eat them, but I did for this one. I'm glad I did because there was a hair inside the patty. I called the waitress over and she looked shocked as fuck. I got a new burger and a second plate of fries though.

What's your guys' techniques and tricks?
Holy shit, has anyone else tried these? They may just be the worst things ever to have passed my lips. I don't see how they got past testing.
It's actually kind of incredible how many flavors are practically inedible.
I guess when you're making dirt cheap dough pockets stuffed with nasty jam paste you can afford to make a lot of mistakes.
Bet for all the dozens of flavors they have not even 10 could qualify as good or tasty.
I'm fucking tired of onions. How can I cut them without tearing up? Please only actual useful shit that works and not some soccer mother mythical shit like having some water in your mouth or sniffing some bread.
Friendly reminder that if you don't take your coffee BLACK like it's supposed to, you're norlt a real man.
We need to do more about issue of homeless getting food in this country
It is sad when people can't eat some food
Why can't they get some food
They must be eating something if they're not dead yet. I think America is doing a good enough job of the homeless and jobless can survive off of the crumbs of capitalism.
Quick reminder that there are people in Africa literally starving to death and looking like corpses. If someone in America looks like a corpse, it probably had something to do with meth.
There are plenty of resources that homeless people can take advantage of.
Problem is...homeless shelters won't let you shoot up heroin or get drunk, and most homeless would choose getting fucked up over a warm meal and a bed any day of the week.
I gave it an honest go a few years ago. Ate a perfect bread and butter pickle. It just wasn't good. It's like, well, eating a cucumber soaked in vinegar, and I only like vinegar in my eggs and on potatoes and leaves.
I see them everywhere in flyover but never tried it. Guess it can't be that bad

How do I keep my knives sharp?
What are the best knives to get for the average home cook?
Are carbon steel knives any good?
>Get a stone and a steel
>Carbon steel takes a better edge and keeps it longer as long as you clean and oil them like a turbo autist. Not worth it for kitchen knives.
What knife do I get?
The 25 dollar ones from walmart aren't sharp enough.
Is it better to send your knives away to get sharpened or to do it yourself?
Also how can a stone sharpen a knife?
What knives do you own? I have a carbon steel Sabatier that I rarely have to sharpen, mostly used for onions at prep time. A stainless Mac Nakiri I keep at a razor-sharp edge for most of my other prep (chiffonade, brunoise), that I religiously sharpen every other time I use it, and a deba I hardly get to use.
Worst McD experience?
at the drive-thru.
there was an angry customer in front of me, complaining for 10+ minutes. dude begins to drive away, so i pull up a bit. then he decides to reverse to the window again, coming within an inch of hitting my car. i had to yell out at him, which made him even more pissed off. i had just gotten off a stressful day of work and i was ready to chimp out and beat his ass.
when i finally got my 20 mcnuggets, they were super stale. like they sat around for 3 hours and then got microwaved.
A couple years back when the mcrib was in town. They had a "buy a combo, get a second sandwich for 1 dollar" promotion, and I overdid it by buying 3 small combos for myself and 3 extra sandwiches, making it 6 mcribs, 3 fries and three sodas for about 20 bucks.
Ate all of it right there in the restaurant. I was stuffed, and had to relax for a while before trying to get up and walk home. Ubfoetunately, I developed some flu-like symptoms and ended up vomiting right there at the table and shitting myself on the way home. I was so embarassed I took off my pants and underwear before I walked in the house, made sure my wife wasn't in the living room, and tossed them in a grocery bag. That bag stayed in a corner of our garage until the day we moved out.
Went back to McDonald's a week later, and when I ordered a mcrib combo, the cashier kept looking at me and smiling.
Fucking judgemental twat.

So my supermarket started selling this weird a*s expensive eggs (almost 8$ x6)
Are you one of those fucks who is constantly whipping his phone out to take pictures of silly shit in the supermarket? Don't you realize that you're in other people's way when do you crap like that?
Leave your toys at home or in the car. You don't need to play with one while you're shopping.

What's the secret ingredient that makes green absinthe green?
>that guy who unironically believes sugar is healthier than fat
The idea that some foods are healthy and unhealthy is what's absurd. It's patterns of eating that matter. There seem to be a few patterns that work pretty well, and many that don't.
It's far better to get yourself into a pattern of eating that works for you than to worry about how much any particular foods ought to be vilified.
