This is a two part question about the preparation of rice.
Firstly, is rinsing it truly necessary or is it just a meme?
And if so, what's the best/most efficient way of rinsing it?
yes, rinsing is important. you get loads of dust with most rice.
as for rinsing, run it under water, or get a bowl filled with water and dunk it in a collander, working it with your hands.
havent you ever wondered why the water is white when you rinse decent rice?
also fuck off with your meme bullshit.
My asian mom har never rinsed the rice we eat since like 4th grade. And when I found out at age 18 I lost my shit about it. But she was like youv been fine so far.
Soo yeah idk dude seems to be fine. But mighr be different for other people. I make my own rice now lol.
But if you buy expensive rice you dont have to rince it to much.
how do I make Burrito?
what stops me from making burritos: i can never find good flour tortillas.
the pre-packaged ones in my grocery store always taste super dry and stale.
i think flour tortillas are one of those things that should always be served as fresh as possible. no older than a day.
Ok /ck/, gimme the low down on Del Taco. How does it compare to Taco Bell. What's the best thing to get?
Favorite Popsicle flavor?

Can't beat honest home cooking
Family is coming over for 6 days idk what to cook for 15 people
Which restaurant chain has on average,the most attractive employees?
my vote goes for Chic-Fil-A
Any chain limited to Nothern/Eastern Europe.
Every fucking year this shit happens in germany.
Nobody buys or eats that shit in September yet every store has this shit on sale now. Printen, Spekulatius, Lebkuchen, Vanillekipferl, Spritzgebäck, Stollen etc. etc. all already available. Temperatures are still high in germany it's still summer here. We are still 3 months away from christmas. I know you can already buy Halloween candy in America now (in Germany you already can too) but does any other countries have this shit popping in stores way too early?
In germany you can buy painted easter eggs the whole year. Not kidding.
So, in my Youtube feed this video showed up:
Has anyone here had this? Is it good?
Looks weird as fuck.
>has anyone had that?
I have, sort of. There a similar Singaporean dessert called ice kacang (literally 'ice peanuts') that includes peanuts boiled in sugar syrup, cendol (worm-like rice flour noodles), fruits from a can that are stored in the fridge (especially palm seeds), fucking corn for some reason, jelly cubes and shaved ice. The whole thing is layered with lots of multicoloured syrups.
i'm going to the supermarket soon
make a list for me
extra vergine oliveoil (500ml)
750g yukon gold or smilar potatoe
400 yellow onion
ingredients for aioli, or readymade aioli if lazy
make a delicious,basic tortilla espanola oday and youll also have food for tomorrow, since it might be even better cold
Anyone here ever make "Cowboy coffee"?
My drip machine stopped working so i boiled a cup of water and then put some coffee grounds in the water then i strained the coffee into another cup (with a pasta strainer). the coffee was actually better than my normal, drip-brewed coffee.
also coffee thread.
>you mean raw fish?
why don't they sell it all day? how stupid are those people.
Because that's clearly not the best fast food sandwich.
How do you avoid those precious sausages cracking on the grill?
I get theres direct/indirect heat.. so just put them on the rim?
Is a fast casual based around mozzarella sticks a good idea?
>Americans fry tiny mozzarella sticks
"Disgusting, no wonder you're all so fat"
>Greeks fry enormous wedges of Halloumi
"Ah, healthy frats and protein, truly the pinnacle of the healthy Mediterranean diet!"
Do bongs really have a broth aisle in the grocery store?
I got a lot of blue crabs they are already boiled
do i make pasta with crab or just a big stew
You eat them while drinking beer. You don't need to concoct some experimental recipe. Just enjoy the crabs on a picnic table covered in newspaper with loads of beer. It's one of the most fun friend gatherings. Ask anyone from Baltimore.
i would clean them first
pull the carapace
clean the gills
cut off the mouth
split in half
toss with garlic and melted butter
dust them with old bay
into a pan and into the oven
sort of like the pic but without the carapace so that the seasonings can hit some of the meat.
On a good day I can easily drink 2 litres/2 quarts.
Apart from being some 1200 calories are there any disadvantages?
I'd pretty much only use mustard on my hotdog and a few meat dishes. Oh, and homemade mayo.
I'm have German ancestry. There is very little food that doesn't get mustard on it. Usually something better than a plain yellow. Stone Ground, Whole, Hot and Spicy, Horseradish... and some specialty shit I'd have to go look for. I know there's a maple syrup honey in the fridge somewhere.
Pretty much any pork product should get mustard.
Sometimes I let a white onion chill in the fridge for about 5 hours, I peel off the skin and next two layers of it, drench in mustard, and eat it as is.. Sometimes I dice up dill pickles and onion in a bowl and eat it by itself as well.. Probably horrible for my stomach, but it is so crisp and tangy. Anyone else have cravings that are frowned upon?
I like to make pao de quiejo then put more cheese on it and maybe a cold cut like salami or mortadella.
Waffles with melted mozzarella, tomatoes, oregano and a bit of mayo on it.
Marie cookies with mayo.
Onions and ketchup.
Is there are a more underrated kitchen utensil?
How do I make a nice ramen on my own without spending 30$ on asian stuff and stand hours in the kitchen?
>Try to look up authentic recipes on internet/youtube
>Title "Authentic recipe"
>Inside: "This is my twist on the authentic recipe"
This really triggers me so much I just want a simple authentic recipe not your tinkered with shit
This is a gripe of mine, too. Authentic recipes from non-Anglo countries tend to not be in English, so just get yourself knee deep into foreign parts of youtube, learn metric, and observe carefully.
so what youre saying is youd rather learn some second hand method of cooking something, instead of the OG traditional way?
>i dont want to learn how to tie my shoes, they made velcro for that!
How do you make milkshake exactly like the ones in In-N-Out or Jack N The Box?
How do you make it thicker?
It has a metric shit ton of sugars (increases viscosity), citric acid to take the edge off the sweetness buffered with Disodium phosphate, gels, goms, surfactants and emulsifiers.
Jack in the box ingredient list :
Ice Cream Shake Mix
Milk, Cream, Sucrose, Skim Milk, Corn Syr
up, Whey, Stabilizer (Sodium Caseinate, Cellulose Gum, Mono- and Di-glycerides, Disodium Phosphate, Non-Fat Dry Milk, Carrageenan, Guar Gum, Sodium Citrate,
Polysorbate 65, and Dextrose), Natural and Artificial Vanilla,...

>Eating lunch with my mom at pic related
>Got the basic Fettuccine Alfredo
>Comes with choice of soup or salad
>I choose the soup, Zuppa Toscana
>Delicious soup with potatoes, crunchy kale, and chopped sausage
>As I'm enjoying my soup, I find a small lanky hair floating on the surface
>When the waitress passes by, I point out the hair that I found in my soup.
>She immediately apologizes, calls over the manager and brings me a fresh bowl of soup instantly
>Turns out the owner of the restaurant was there when this happened
>The owner actually comes over to my table, shakes my hand, and says "Anon, This is completely unacceptable. Please, feel free to order whatever you want, I'm going to personally pay for your order out of my own pocket"
>Change my order to "The Tour of Italy"
>Comes with Spaghetti and Meat Balls, Lasagna, Fettuccine Alfredo, and Chicken Parmesan.
>Also order a slice of chocolate cake.
>As my mother and I are leaving the place, the owner stops us and gives us his business card and says "If anything like this ever happens again, just give me a call"
>I tell him I appreciate all his efforts and that we will be coming back more often
>At this point, I'm stuffed beyond belief. Ate so much food that I'm about to vomit
>But, It's not until my mother and I are leaving the parking lot that I realize the hair in the soup was actually my hair.
>I received an entire full course meal for free for something that was my own fault.
I get why you're saying that, but at the time, I thought it was one of the cook's pubes. By the owner pretty much "paying me off" he saved himself a visit from the health inspector.
I think my lazyness disorder might harm me in the long run
It doesnt matter at which time i go to bed, even if its 10pm i will struggle to wake up in the morning. This results in me sleeping as long as possible, skipping breakfast and because im too lazy to prep food the evening before i will go from dinner to the end of work at 5pm without eating anything like 3 days a week
What effects will this have on my body? I already feel like throwing up regular in the morning hours
Very rarely, theres no cafeteria, i would have to decide and go out, it would cost me on a daily basis and during my lunch hour i read books. Something that i wouldnt do in my free time. That would cut back on it.
And as mentioned, im too lazy to prep microwaveable lunch every evening before
Water bathed some beef last night.
57°C for 5 hours, then seared in a cast iron pan.
What are your opinions /ck?
Hey guys I've seared goat and put it in the oven at 150°C
How long should it stay in for?
Can someone explain how the most biodegradable substance on earth can be "wasted" by going in a landfill?
