Outside of East and South Asia, I've never heard of cuisines purposely prepared using insects.
Why has insect consumption been so rare in human history thus far?
They seem to be everywhere but nobody wants to try and cook them for dinner.
They crawl on the floor so they carry disease. I'm guessing some desperate folks might occasionally try them, but probably for lack of calories from other sources rather than part of a dish.
Your average Chinese or Korean will boil up and eat anything that isn't nailed to the floor. I really wouldn't mind trying Thai-prepared tarantulas on a pot sticker. Seems like it'd have the texture of your typical sea arthropod. As far as why should be simple to realize the rest of the world's aversion. Insects and arachnids are viewed as pests/vermin, carry disease, and can also be quite venomous.
What's your favourite breakfast, /ck/?
We need a good thread now that the jack (who is irrelevant to /ck/) one has rightfully been deleted.
How do you drink your coffee biz? I prefer mine black.

Just took this bad boy out of the oven, followed this recipe to make it: https://www.theperfectloaf.com/best-sourdough-recipe/
fair warning though if you use this recipe, unless you have the exact same flour brand as listed AND you have your wet dough technique down you will have to use less water then what is listed.
i dont have access to that flour so i ended up only going as high as 81% (original recipe calls for 86%) hydration and even that was almost too wet.

the ingredients are good. But I'm not a fan of hard,crusty bread, or recipes that take a lot of work. At the end of the day, it's just bread. I prepare and bake my bread as quickly and efficiently as I can.
how do you guys make rice interesting?
most of the time i just use soy sauce or hot sauce
Why do we cook are food?
Obviously I know WHY we cook our food, but every other species on the planet eats without cooking food and lives normally.
Why can't humans? Is it because we have evolved knowing how to cook? Have our stomachs and immune systems gotten weaker? What gives, why do we have to cook everything?
we probably found it was easier to digest when cooked, or tastier, and maybe we even used to get sick occasionally when eaten food raw. somewhere we decided cooking some things are better. we probably cant handle raw stuff like we used to, but i dont think our immune systems got weaker. its more specific though
Wild animals and plants are totally edible raw. Our agricultural processes make then unsafe. The reason why cooked meat is tastier is because it's more boo available to us. Evolution makes us like foods high in nutrients (double edged sword making us love fatty sugary salty foods), so naturally we prefer cooked plants and meat.
Raw food diets aren't based on science btw.
Why is Mexican food so delicious?
Do you concur or do you consider this wrong/dated?
If so what should be different about it?
Seems reasonable. The good thing about it is that it's somewhat vague, leaving out specific information about calories because that varies from one person to the next. I think the note about oils could be expanded a little more. It only mentions butter, olive and canola oils. Peanut, vegetable, and corn oils are pretty common too. It should at least mention one of those as healthy or unhealthy. I wonder what it would say about rendered animal fats too. Personally, I use a fair amount of chicken fat when I cook.
Is soup a food or a drink?
>rate my poverty dinner
Anyone knows any good creamy but sweet sauces? Not for desserts.
Why do asians and hispanics love to put mayo on so many of their dishes?
Is this some kind of a non-US thing? Or a poor thing?
yeah mayo tastes good but its by no means healthy
Because we eat hyper-unhealthily so rarely that drowning an occasional dish in mayonnaise is no great sin. Try fixing your everyday diet so that you can then eat the occasional mayobomb without concern.
Tell me everything you know about making amazing burgers.
How do you season the beef, how do you cook the patties, in what order do you layer the ingredients, what if anything do you do to the buns, etc etc.
>Select all images with a storefront
Leave me alone!
Use decent chuck with 27% fat content. Add some ground lamb if you can find it. GENTLY form the patties, and form them LOOSELY.
Find real tomatoes, not rubber tomatoes. Use a mandoline to shred iceberg lettuce and onions like 2-atoms-thin. Put a slice of cheese on the bottom of the patty in case it leaks.
Don't overcook the patties on the charcoal grill. That's about all there is to it.
Does dominos pizza damage the IQ?
What dish is illegal or taboo in your country that you want to try?
I think the Japanese can make any damn thing look appetizing. Even this marinated, raw horse meat.
In the US, it varies by state law. Most states ban it commercially, but in California, not only is it illegal to buy and sell, horse meat is a FELONY just to possess! Regardless of the law, there's no arguing it's taboo, probably ranking somewhere between cats and dolphins.
how do you deal with picky eaters, /ck/?
serve 'em tendies and fries
fried food takes maybe 10 minutes of extra work and then they can't bitch
'I just don't like X'
well I don't like having to put extra effort to cook 2 whole complete meals for your whiny bitch ass, enjoy your child tier food u faggot
I fucking need one. I know you worthless faggots have nothing better to do than meme and post Jack, but I also know some of you actually cook.
I need YOUR help. I need a good brand or something for a good chef's knife. Everything is just cheap metal here that dulls when cutting raw meat. It's terrible. I need a knife with actual good quality metal or I guess ceramic but I've never used a ceramic knife.
What's the deal with these as seen on TV pans? I needed a non-stick pan so I picked one of these up at rite-aid for $20, took it home, followed the directions to season it in the oven with oil for 20 minutes, and it's fucking wonderful. Perfect for eggs. They don't slide around the pan like in the commercial, but they don't stick. So what's the gimmick?
Is that the region that I flyover on my LA to Boston trips? Do the locals have their own food culture or something?
How do I make "authentic" tasting mexican food? I mainly want my chicken and carne asada to actually taste decent. Last time I cooked chicken it ended up tasting like taco bell. No bueno.
btw. My mexican friend told me to marinate the steak in beer. But what else?
i just had real peruvian fried chicken, it was pretty great, well cooked, crunchy, big portions, etc.
Mexican, chinese. Its cheap food and it will never be worth it to take the time and effort to learn to make it, depending where you are born some recipes are really fucking hard to achieve because basic differences in preparation, some things are worth to learn for convinience, to impress or to treat yourself, mexican is not one
authentic mexican food is made with goat, donkey, and crickets
nobody eats authentic mexican food outside of mexican ideas. The "mexican" food you know is really more like mexican inspired food.
Mexico has some good ideas but lacks the infrastructure to make actually good tasting food in the country
What's the worst alcohol that exists and why does it taste like acetone and diesel
For me it's tequila.
I'd choose absolute rocket fuel absinthe or vodka before tequila. I don't care what brand it is, if it's considered premium or not, you can take your shitty agave liquor and ram it right up your culo
Tomato, gooey,garlic, healthy goodness.
Literally the perfect light breakfast item to start a lazy weekend with.
For the most authentic experience enjoy with a fresh glass of real Israeli orange juice

Is there an all around better beer?
Protip: probably but fuck you
Bock ain't bad. The ruby red grapefruit and white wing are solid too.
But yes there are so many better beers. Not even counting the more expensive higher quality craft stuff I'd honestly put a lot of smaller domestic brands over it. Shit honestly I'd rather have a Yuengling or Narragansett. Its still good though, especially if you live in Texas where it's very cheap.
I actually kinda like mcdonalds. Like, they aren't the best, for sure. But I like cheap ass quality burgers. They are the tastiest.
I don't think McDonalds has the best tasting burgers, Wendy's comes to mind and whenever I've had Burger King equivalents to McDonalds burgers (compare Buckdouble to McDouble) I preferred theres
However, there is just something about McDonalds...it has it's own taste, it's own smell, some unique thing that I can't put my finger on but know is there and sometimes crave specifically
What's your favorite pizza crust and why why WHY isn't it thin crust?
Crunchy goodness goys
I like a thicker crust with plenty of space around the edges to grip and eat, as a good crust is amazing on its own to have. I don't want crust with any crunch like the crispy cracker thin crust.
All I have is a horror pic but the crust looks great, would prefer something like this.
