What is the worst vegetable and why is it corn?
>taste bland as shit
>Loud as fuck to eat
>tedious, have to rotate the cob and move your mouth left and right like a fucking typewriter
>gets stuck in your teeth
>covered in stringy fibers
>taste bland as shit
Ah but we've found the problem. You seem to be an American. Do not be mistaken. American "vegetables" have no flavor. They are engineered to have no flavor, or rather I should say they are engineered to have everything EXCEPT for flavor.
The point is corn is a fantastic vegetable. You've just never eaten any.
I really want to start brewing nice teas. I just buy H-E-B brand teas like white tea and stuff. I know loose leaf teas exist(teavana and all) but I hear teavana is bad.
Who makes good tea?
Good loose-leaf tea comes from an estate, like wine.
Also like wine, tea is categorized by its general region: Assam, Ceylon, Darjeeling, and so on.
Japan and China have their own systems for their teas as well.
Don't buy branded blends of loose-leaf, find an importer who can sell you the leaf without a bunch of sprinkles and creamer added to it.
Go on, /ck/.
Have a slice.
Thoughts on this?
I think I like it.
It confuses me every time I taste it though.
Also, what's really weird is that it costs $2 even. No change, just $2.
What toppings to you put on your Tacos?
I like shredded lettuce
What else goes good on tacos?
Going to cook up some filet mignon on a pan on stove. Want to know how long I should cook for rare, I'm guessing somewhere around 4-5 min for each side with olive oil/butter on med/high?
This is my first time making dumplings, please rate me harshly.
My fat gaijin hands can't into tiny chink folds
This is probably the nicest one I made
I'm about to cook a petite filet of beef and I was wondering if this pan would work in lieu of a shallow roasting pan
Roll up a length of aluminum foil about 3 feet long and zig zag that on the bottom, then put the meat on top of that. Trust me it's worth it the meat gets a better sear on it and you have better drippings to make an au jus with.
Alright /ck/ I need your help. I ordered a pack of organic ramen and I accidentally bought the low sodium version and its bland as shit. I need ways to spice up my ramen. Preferably without adding too many calories as I am on a diet.
Why do Americans serve pasta in a bowl of water?
What does /ck/ think of Nigella? Serious replies only please.
I'm tired of J Link's bros.
What is some other good relatively affordable jerky?
This is absolutely the worst restaurant I've ever eaten in my life. You're lazy, you're stupid, and your kitchen is so filthy you're going to kill someone.
Why are you getting defensive? I'm trying to help you.
Hey guys I work out regulary, which means I eat a lot of turkey/chicken breast. Which are starting to become boring.
What are your favorite simple recipes for chicken breast dishes?
I need to make a cheesecake. I never made one before. Help
how do you improve chicken soup?
How does one eat healthy?
How do you eat healthy?
What are some good - usually cheap - materials to cook with for a healthy meal plan?
cook everything you eat yourself. as long as you don't cheat and deep fry everything or top everything with shredded cheese you will naturally form a healthy diet.
my favourite meals which appear at least once a fortnight are
falafel with salad and pitta
curried vegetables with paneer
kimchi stew with pork and tofu
vegetarian chilli (Use red lentils to thicken up the sauce)
Only eat meat 2-3- times a week, keep your protein up with pulses on non meat days. meat is by the most expensive thing when cooking. when you buy meat, buy cheap cuts, they normally take longer to cook but can end up tasting much better.
Have lunch with me?
What do you think of my appetizer plate, /ck/?
>Invite the office for dinner
>Cook salmon and NY strip steaks
>Secretary brings her kids over
>didn't tell people to bring anybody, but whatever, I understand wanting to not leave them alone.

Opinions on Persian cuisine?
I have a shitloaf of potatoes and I want to use them. What can I make with them beside mashed taters and baked potatoes?
Would you eat this? Does it look good?
>Open minced beef
>Cut in half with clean knife
>Leave half in tub
>Store in fridge for 48 hours in sealed bag.
Couldn't cook it last night, was dragged out by coworkers.
Is it still good? I get nervous leaving meat more than 24 hours when the seal is broken.
Well if I googled this I'd get 1,000 websites written for plebs that all say if you do not eat the opened pack of meat the next evening you will LITERALLY DIE OF SALMONELLA ARE YOU MAD.
Just wanted some common sense reassurance.
Can /ck/ teach me how to make eggs?
I usually fry them and put them over hash browns like a real merican but I want something different.
Answer me this /ck/
I know you don't refrigerate onions, but if I chop them do I put them in the refrigerator?
Have you ever seen someone try to disguise bought food as their own cooking?
Well, I finally got the chance to try Costco pizza.
Not bad. Not bad at all. Yeah, I could get a better slice in NYC for $2, but this stuff is good on its own merit. Thick layer of real (if somewhat salty) cheese, competent crust and sauce. Better than a slice of Little Caesars or that Marketside stuff from Wal-Mart.
If I had a Costco membership I'm sure I'd be getting a whole pizza of this once a month or so.
looks like Marn's leg
I've just discovered these.
There amazing and only take 90 seconds to ""cook""
10/10, other than the Cheese Burger what other flavours should I try?
Help me /ck/. I love vegetables, but I'm an ignorant savage when it comes to cooking them. I've been living alone for the first time and for the past two months I've eaten basically nothing but pasta, meat, and rice and I'm sick of it.
Like I'll see a leek and think
>wow that looks good I wish I knew how to cook something that uses it
Cabbage! Oh cabbage is fantastic. When I used to live in the college dorms and eat at the dining halls I'd fill my plate with cabbage and broccoli and whatever the fuck mixed vegetable they had that day. But if I buy a head of cabbage it's like
>wtf do I do with this?
And then I don't know how the hell long they all last for. Are these potatoes bad? They don't smell, but they feel kind of soft. Can I just leave all of them in the plastic bags that I used to carry them from the grocery store? Are there ones that shouldn't be placed in the plastic bags? WTF ones do you refrigerate?
woody veg like broccoli, cauliflower and cabbage can be steamed until tender. chop into bite size pieces, discarding the hard inedible cores or stem ends.
succulent veg like eggplant and zuchinni and peas can be gently pan fried until soft.
use butter and salt to flavor at first.
make a green salad with thin sliced ored onion, tomatoes and red lettuce. it will keep for 2-3 days in the fridge if tightly covered
potatoes smell worse than a corpse when they go bad, you'll know.
veg that don't go in the fridge: potatoes, onions, squash, yams, tomatoes, bananas, melons
everything else should go in the fridge.
