Why does ketchup make almost everything taste better?
I made some bread. Yes it's Challa, no I'm not jew. /pol/ pls go.
First time doing a braided style, didn't get it exactly right but pretty pleased with the results. Gotta make sure I even up the thickness of the strands more next time.
I'll show you mine if you show me yours.
Interesting, I use a kiwi chopper and serrated victorinox paring knife
I just bought a Bob Kramer 8-inch
also, does anyone have a recommendation for a good knife roll/case?

Gas or coal?
My dad insists on using old coal every weekend even though he has a beautiful gas grill. He claims it TASTES better and that gas makes it taste like chemicals and doesn't give it a real grilled flavor because there's no smoke. I think he's full of shit, it gets a flame grilled smoke flavor from juices dripping onto the flame and I think his charcoal shit tastes like cancer. He also insists on mixing used charcoal with new coals, disgusting. We argue about which is better, I only use gas at home and he'll only use coal.
Which is really better?
charcoal 'cause i have a shitty propane grill that just doesn't put out the heat.
i guess i like my propane grill when i'm doing something light, like hot dogs,hamburger patties, or chicken pieces.
i wouldn't trust it with a steak.
Coal is for fucktards who haven't discovered consistent temperature control. Also the coals themselves give it a bad smoke flavor, the smoke flavor you want is burning fat and marinade which is what you get on a gas grill.
Kinda from leftovers.
Bottom left is a roux make with beef fat
Upwards is chicken thigh, smoked turkey
Little right is flank steak leftovers
Top middle is stock made with a smoked pork knuckle/smoked turkey thigh, thinned with more chicken stock
Holy trinity with a couple fresh bay leaves.

Anyone else get roped into making holiday food for work?
Every other week or so, we have to bring food for some random events. We keep having coworkers getting pregnant, so there has been a rash of baby showers.
Pic related is one thing I made for a basket for an auction.
1. Your country
2. Are you proud of its cuisine?
Food is good if you don't live in the fucking mountains. I grew up hating my countries food because my mom came from the mountains and food is terrible there. After moving out I discovered the wonderful world of city life.
What is the Sean Connery of food?
Any advice for an 18 year old that has no experience with cooking and is going to college next year? I need to stop making eggs 50% of the time.
pic related, it's what i eat cause i'm lazy
>Watch "easy" cooking shows (Giada at home, Jamie's 15 min meals, etc)
>Watch cooking youtube channels that aren't trash (don't watch Cooking with Ja/ck/ for example).

Honestly, the harder skills (knife technique, time/heat...

How many of you here are classically trained?
I'd like to know not because I'm interested in attending any culinary or vocational school (couldn't afford quitting my job even if I did), but because I simply want to further my knowledge of cooking on a personal level. What does the curriculum involve? Are there any standard textbooks they go by?
What resources do you all use to improve on your cooking? Following a simple recipe is one thing, but I'd like something more--like why spice X goes good with spice Y, the type of flavor profile it creates...

There are a couple up that are just bitching so let's get a real thread going.
Drinking pic related tonight. Great stuff! I prefer Badger Hill's ESB mostly because it's local and cheaper. The Alesmith one is slightly better though. Goes down like water.
Evil Twin is kind of a meme brewery, but I'm still curious to try it.
Not to mention I love goses
I really wish you would have hijacked one of those pre-existing "bitching" threads instead of starting yet another alcohol-related thread. You would have contributed more quality spread less thinly. Please consider this for the future.
sage for being disgruntled.
Probably the dumbest question on the board right now, but I was given pasta and sauce as leftovers last saturday.
Would you still eat it 8 days later?
Personally I probably wouldnt.
I eat a lot of food that it past its use by date. A lot of the food I actually buy is reduced because its on its use by date, and I often keep it for a few more days. However, pasta doesnt keep well. I wouldnt eat cooked pasta that is more than 4 days old. And even at 4 days old id still feel like it probably wasnt good.
If the sauce is seperate, then it depends on what kind of sauce it is as to whether id eat it.
