Favorite mustards? I'm looking for some recommendations...big fan of pic related
I know way too much about food and the industry.
Depends on what you want to know. Outbreaks... look no further than the CDC.
For general stuff, check out the Institute of Food Technologists' newsroom (http://www.ift.org/newsroom.aspx) If you join IFT, for which you may or may not qualify, you get their magazine. It is awesome.
Redbull me on the mcchicken. Is it really that great? Why do people like it so much?
No, it's actually really tasty, an excellent value, and one of the few items at McDonald's that is actually worth getting.
Hey /ck/ how well does champagne age? I just found a bottle that's nearly 20 years old.
Where was it stored?
Im guessing you found a 1996? Good news if the bottle was stored correctly because its a phenomenal vintage, It should have a slightly darker golden hue now. It will be slightly less effervescent. Got a picture?
Ah, the great debate. Some say best before 4-5 years old for a standard bottle, up to 10 years for an outstanding one. Others say up to 20 for a good bottle. Rule of thumb is, the sweeter the better it ages. Personally I prefer a ~fresh~ dry taste anyway, so I'm not a fan of old ones.
tl;dr Pretty sure your bottle won't get much better, drink it soon.
So I'm sick as a dog with the stomach flu. I'm talking vomiting, diarrhea, basically every single thing you can think of when it comes to this shitty virus. I've been in so much discomfort it's hard to sleep.
What are your guys' go to remedies to soothe an unstable stomach? Everything I eat, including the BRAT diet seems to just sit in my stomach and build air until I'm forced to vomit from the discomfort.
Sick food thread? Sick food thread.
Why does burger king get a bum rap? Their burgers have a smoky flavor, which makes them more tasty than boring McDonalds and Wendy's. Their fries are really tasty and give McD fries a run for their money. They have a lot of gimmicks for you to try out if you wanna try something new.
Honestly, it goes Burger King > McDonalds > Wendy's in terms of overall tastiness. McDs does good chicken and fries when they're fresh, and Wendy's is overpriced, overhyped garbage.
Their burgers don't have a smoky flavour, just a burnt flavour. They taste awful. If you're the kind of person to be impressed by Burger King's burgers, you're a pleb.
Only thing worthwhile at BK is chicken fries and they got rid of those over here
Nothing they serve tastes anything like meat
Is Ham and cheese the best pizza type ever?
What was your favorite food your mom made for you growing up /ck/? For me its either her Loose burgers or Meatloaf and potatoes

What Would You Have Eaten for Christmas in Medieval Times?
With Christmas almost upon us, there will be plenty of frenzied present shopping and meal planning. Haven’t made that Christmas cake yet? Fear not. If you were preparing the festive meal 600 years ago you’d have far more on your plate.
The picture below is a calendar page from a Book of Hours, a type of prayer book popular among...

Wealthy or poor
There’s not much detail as to what the couple ate at their winter feast. The artist was more interested in depicting the strawberries and flowers in the margins than in putting food on the table. This is typical of medieval manuscript art. Even elaborate descriptions of royal feasts say little about food. We know even less about what the poor ate, although lords probably feasted their tenants at least once over Christmas.
We do know that preparations for winter would have begun in the late autumn. Humans and animals both ate the same basic foodstuff: grain. Poorer people did not have enough grain for animals over winter so most pigs and cattle were fattened up on acorns and slaughtered. Calendars commemorate this strategic act for the months of November and December as in the images below, paired with the relevant signs of the zodiac (Sagittarius and Capricorn).
Of course, the wealthy could continue to keep their animals alive, so they had fresh meat all winter. It’s not true that they used spices to liven up rotten meat: cloves, nutmeg, cinnamon and pepper were imported from India or Indonesia, so if you could afford them you could afford good meat. The rich could also afford sugar – candied fruit, sugared almonds and sweets have always been popular Christmas treats.
The poor would have eaten sausage and bacon instead, salted fish if they could get it, stored or dried apples, peas and beans, perhaps a bit of honey, and would only have had the added flavours of onion, leeks and garlic. Even salt was expensive. The hungriest time was actually not the months that we associate with winter cold, but the months of April and May. It was then that stores had run out and there would be little growing yet in the garden. Nor was there much dairy as hens naturally lay less in winter and cows don’t produce milk until after they have their spring calves.
The best way to find out what the wealthy ate is to turn to their financial accounts and cookery books. Cookery books such as theForme of Cury, written for the household of King Richard II (1377-1399), provide some tasty recipes. For arecent projectwe made recipes from this text and others for the public to try at festivals and markets around Yorkshire. In Castleford Market in December 2012 we prepared seasonal tastes such as gingerbread, mutton stew (mounchelet) and apple pudding (pommesmoile).
But it was nigh on impossible to prepare the main dishes that the rich had at their feasts. Turkey originally came from the Americas so was not found on English tables until the late 16th century. It probably replaced a showier but much less tasty bird: the peacock. The price of these birds meant that most people had to be content with another large expensive bird, the goose, which was a traditional Christmas main course until relatively recently. Also closely associated with Christmas was the wild boar – a boar’s head was often brought into the hall to accompanying carols. But it wasn’t always intended for eating.
And then elaborate displays of prepared meat, sugar or wax in the form of fantasy animals, angels and castles were often part of the entertainment, sometimes even moving mechanically or exploding.
So count yourself lucky as somebody who won’t go hungry this winter. You may have left the pudding quite late but you can leave the peacock and pommesmoile for next year.

Are you still using wheat pasta /ck/? Why? Are you a caveman?
Gluten is a strong protein that stresses your digestive system. Don't you know that? Are you an animal? Why are you still eating low tier wheat pasta?
I eat unprocessed barley.

>so high fiber

Anyone have a recipe for some authentic Haitian cookies?
/ck/ is there any food that you can't stand on its own but you enjoy the products of?
Personally, I can't stand just straight up corn. But I love polenta, corn whiskey, corn tortillas and cornflakes.
Anyone else feel similarly about some other food?
potatoes. i can't stand boiled potatoes. but most other potato stuff is delicious to me. hash browns, fries, kartoffelpuffer, mashed potatoes, potatoes in the skin, the list goes on

Okay, so I have several cheap, lowish quality ribeyes and 2 cheap tiny filet mignons from walmart (so you know they're not good quality). I don't want to just eat these straight up as steaks as they're just not good enough. The filet mignon is so-so but the ribeye is tough as shit, no matter how rare it is, and has some huge motherfucking fat strips throughout instead of consistent good marbling, and that turns me off. (pic not mine, shitty google pic)
Anyway, what's something I can do with these? I think just making them as a steak would just be a...

partially freeze, shave thin, cook hot and fast with a little salt, garlic powder, onion powder, worchestershire and thinly cut onion. make fucking steak sammiches. while it's still on the griddle/skillet put a piece of provolone over it to melt and use a spatula to move it onto a nice bun.
Had to google Jaccard. Ashamed to say that I have no meat tenderizers/mallets/etc at all in my kitchen. I have multiple times wished I had.
Is it worth the cost? Is there a cheaper alternative to that brand that works as well?
What is your favourite type of Pork?
Hi /ck/, does any of you know an easy curry sauce recipe?
What does /ck/ think about Pilsner Urquell?
It's okay. I only drink pic related when I want a nice beer and Coors Light when I want to get drunk.
Do upper class people just not eat carbs, and instead draw their energy from the blood and tears of the peasantry?
>Do upper class people just not eat carbs
You probably meant to shitpost but actually you are right.
I am British and most familiar with the class system, although I consider myself to be working class, I have mixed with various types and even eaten with nobility!
Within the higher echelons, carbs tend to take a backseat but are introduced during dessert, with rich pastries and puddings.
Why did he buy Dairy Queen?
Do you miss your parents' or grandparents' cooking?
I am going to buy a dutch oven, I can only buy one and it will be the only one I will be using. Should I go with a cast iron or steel one?
is /ck/ Norwegian?
how do you eat yours?
I am bored so let's do this. I'll start with a delicacy: an authentic abeetz
Woke up this morning after a bottle of bourbon and I'd made fried chicken with an entire 2kg packet of chicken. About half of it left on a plate in the fridge.
I also ordered two Dominos pizzas at some point during the night and ate only four slices from them.
What do you crave when you're drunk?
Drinking reserve cognac and vaping grains of paradise.
Life doesn't get anymore sensual than this.
You have $5 to improve this bowl of white rice as much as possible
How do you go about doing so?
ITT: post the most recent food you've made no matter how good or bad
Pic is a beef pie that just got out of the oven.
I made a birthday cake.
It's shit. The swiss meringue buttercream is grainy and loose, and the recipe didn't result in nearly enough of it to cover the cake properly.
It's supposed to be topped with caramel sauce, but I didn't realize that making caramel sauce is fucking hard, and I burnt it to inedibility. I'm trying the sauce again, but I've had to just ice the cake with this shit that looks like scrambled eggs.
What is that one food you can't eat just one of. Or you can't eat just a few, if it's something like nuts.
For me, it's the Pickle. The best jarred food.
