What is /ck/ doing for Christmas??
I'm cooking this 6.5lb ribeye and getting shit faced with kirkland prosecco and homemade eggnog.
How do vegetarians justify eating mushrooms?
Mushrooms are most certainly not plants...the mycelium is more like a giant organism and the fruiting bodies are it's reproductive tendrils.
Phylogenetically they're more closely related to animals than plants.
Further, they exhibit greater degrees if sentience than mollusks.
That said, picking a mushroom does not harm the mycelium. It's basically like picking an apple from a tree.
Bakers how do you charge for your goods? Im doing some cookies for a family member and already costed the ingredients and stuff. The frosted cookies are about 21cents per to make so 7.40 for a batch of 35 cookies. I know you charge more than the cost to make or you just break even but how much more do you charge? Or how do you figure that out?
If I'm doing it for someone I like/family I'll aim for break even because I use real ingredients such as fresh fruit and real butter. If for an acquaintance or coworker I'll do cost plus 20+ baked goods/pies and 50-200 for cakes/special order/cater. This includes delivery. Cookies I'd do break even or about 1.50 per cookie or 2.00 for detailed/personalized cookies.
The short answer is as much as you can get.
The long answer involves futher estimates on your behalf. How much you want to earn per hour of work, overheads on running your establishment like staffing, electricity, rent, etc. Basically any cost plus what you want to make. And research what you can actually realistically charge. This doesn't have to be a lot of work. See what a nice box of cookies sells for. What a cafe sells a nice cookie or baked good for. Take into account your environment, how nice they are. How you are selling them- in bulk or individually. You...

Name your state and three meals/foods they are known for. Bonus points for pictures of said food.

itt (in this thread) post your weird food concoctions
i like to spread peanut butter on a slice of bread and raspberry jam on another. i then bring the two pieces of bread together and cut this object in half, and then eat them
it's pretty good.
I covered chips in gravy and added cheese curds once, was pretty good.
I think I'll call it "northern prison slop".
What have you been baking/making for the Christmas celebrations, coo/ck/s?
Krumkake, almond lace cookies, and lefse (almost ready to start the second batch) here.
Is it a good idea to store crackers in ziplock bags? I put some in a bag and let them stay there for like a week. When I tasted them I thought someone poisoned them. They tasted fucking terrible. They were fine a week ago, what happened? Did sealing them in the bag change their taste?
I normally take my crackers out and put them into a ziploc. What likely happened is that you had bad crackers, or stored them in a warm and wet place. They should be in a cool dry place, with little to no light.
Hey there /ck/. I'm having a big new years party and am in the final stages of hammering out the drink menu. I've seen some pretty goddamn horrifying alcohol threads on here, so I'd love to hear some last minute suggestions for cocktails, shots or other drinks you guys love. I'll have a very well stocked bar, but really want to hear what kind of special things you guys would want to see at a party.
Bar manager here. Go for some easily batched drinks. Maybe eggnog (pic is my favorite recipe) and a cranberry punch since cranberries are in season.
Then, since it's winter, I'd go for a hot cocktail. If you don't do eggnog, a Tom and Jerry is easy to serve (batter, rum/brandy, then just add boiling water. Alternatively, you could do hot buttered rum or a hot toddy. If you are doing eggnog, do a mulled wine or cider (eggnog and Tom and Jerry would be a bit too decadent). Easy to make a few gallons.
My single favorite winter cocktail is a brandy flip...

I'm hungry and at work. Don't have any food and can't leave so I need something that can be delivered.
I don't want pizza or Chinese, so I was thinking of risking the salmonella and getting Jimmy Johns. Do they make anything good?
use the postmates app and order subway. that's what I do because my social anxiety fucks me up everytime I go in, so I just have the postmates guy order it for me and all I have to do is give him the money plus some extra for delivery.
What are your favorite brands of tomato soup? Specifically when it comes to pairing with a grilled cheese.
This is also an invitation to rage about how tomato soup sucks with grilled cheese, since I'm sure you're out there.
Do you dunk, OP?
I don't dunk.
I tried Chef John's tomato bisque. It's quite good.
Otherwise anything but Aylmer. That brand sucks.
Whats the general consensus concerning Newmans Own?
I actually like some of the stuff they make.
Feelgood shit for dumb cunts who don't know the meaning of the term "administrative expenses." Quality is little better than every other thing on supermarket shelves, yet charges astoundingly more for the product.
I rarely buy it myself. But, it's usually pretty good. If I'm eating mostly for fuel/nutrition, I usually go for simpler foods. If I'm eating for getting the most enjoyment of the food, I'm probably making it myself, as the anticipation and activity that goes with food prep is more than half of what I like about a good meal.
Do you think there would be anything of value in this book?

What are traditional christmas dishes from your country?
In Slovakia we buy carp, let in live in the bathtub and then fry them for christmas dinner.
