Can we have a thread about cupcakes? Baking these treats is such a cinch.
Couldn't you just have a small slice? Otherwise I agree
Anyone here ever been to the National Mustard Museum in Middleton, WI?
i went once as a tourist with my cousin and her kids. it was one of the most disappointing museums i've ever been to. i apologized to my cousin's kids afterward because i felt so bad.
Burgers and fries and shakes just go together so well....
What are some other classic combinations?
going here tomorrow, ive never had any food like this, what get?
Has anyone else bought meat from a door to door meat sales person? My parents bought 200 dollars worth a few months ago, the meat was packaged and looked legit. It was fucking awful though
Apparently this is a known scam/thing?
Anyone that buys meat from people selling it door-to-door is incredibly stupid and deserves their bacteria infested horse/dog/cat/raccoon meat.
What's wrong with my onion?
Not sure if ritual is the word
>only drink eggnog with family on December 20th
>only eat at Five Guys once every 4 years
>only drink Coke with two foods: popcorn at movie theaters and my grandmother's egg
anyone else have any other rituals?
Friend chicken on mondays

saturday and sunday I just order what i want. usually pizza and fried chicken again, but I try and keep veggies in my order to stay healthy
Hydrate level 4, please.
Post knives. Talk about them. Ask questions.
Why are most chef's knives curved downward at the spine, instead of a straight spine? Also, does anyone else find most damascus ugly as fuck?
>curved downward at the spine, instead of a straight spine?
>>damascus ugly as fuck
I don't find it ugly per se, but it's rarely appealing to me either. I see it as unnecessary fluff that drives up the price of the knife but has no impact whatsoever on its use. I don't collect knives that need to look pretty in a display case, I cook with them. I don't care what they look like, I care how they preform.
>last restaurant you ate at and how did you like it
A&W. The burgers are always good, but the service fucking sucks. it took too long to get my check and wasn't even offered a refill. I left a dollar tip in quarters, until my wife reminded me we needed to do laundry, so i took it back and left an assortment of dimes and nickels.
does anyone here love mole ? Taste better than most indian curry IMO
Ask a McDonald's employee anything.
ITT: Show /ck/ what is the best thing that you cooked
Intelligent, nihilistic and with a wicked sense of humor.
Only food pic I have in my phone, not my best but was pretty good, octopus lagareiro style, pic looks like shit, blame samsung
Appreciate! That shit is a great addition to nearly anything.
Pro tip: keep the white stalks and put them in a glass of water, when the roots start coming out transfer them to a little pot with some soil on the windowsill. After a week or two, boom, you just got double the amount in one purchase.
That's good to know and I do kind of what to try it,
But green onions only cost like $0.48 for a decent bundle at my local grocery, so I don't know if it's really worth the effort.
They're called Spring Onions in Britain, good with salad but I often eat them as a snack after dipping them in cream cheese or Philadelphia™ - although I do it more often with crab sticks nowadays.
If anything you cook requires a 'packet' then you might as well order pizza. You're not cooking.
Sup /ck/, I'm looking for tips to cook a whole chicken. Now I've had really fucking good chicken before, my dad would make it in the oven, it was always tender as fuck with skin that cracked like glass when you cut it, loaded to the tilt with flavor, but hes dead now so I can't ask and cannot find a recipe with the same results.
For cooking I have two options, oven or coal fired grill. I want to use the grill for adding smoke but what are your thoughts?
Also seasoning, besides salt/peper/garlic and onion? Maximum crispiness required.
>it's a meme recipe where you take some preexisting food like oreos, potato chips, or cheetos, and incorporate it into some kind of casserole/quesadilla dish that involves throwing a bunch of cheese and sugar on it
What Bourbon have you been drinking recently. I live in Pennsylvania, so I have a limited selection of what the government allows me to buy. Wasn't able to get Four Roses Small Batch or Single Barrel anywhere locally until recently.
Knob Creek is my shit, because I love sweetness and oak, but I'm not very fond of rye at all.
Maker's Mark is too expensive and there aren't really any other wheaters available in my area. :'(
I'm not a fan of Makers. There's something about it that just reminds me of a freshly sharpened pencil. I'm kindof curious about trying the cask strength version, but both are very expensive here as well. Makers 46 is great however.
What was your first food related job, if you had any?
Runner in my college's dining hall. Fucking sucked my friends seeing me working for my beer money but I did fall in love with food service. Currently sous chef at a small restaurant in Savannah
I worked at a southern US grocery store. It was hell.
>My bosses were shit.
>The pay was shit.
>They scheduled me for new hours without telling me and yelled at me when I didn't show up.
>Had to handle gross packages of raw, leaky chicken often
>Dealing with customers with shit attitudes
ama ex hell Dairy Queen employee edition
So I just ate a lot of taco Bell.
3 beefy Nacho loaded grillers, a crunchy taco, nachos with cheese, a drink, and a 2 pack of cinnabon delights.
So next week I'll be heading to a fancy tai restaurant with some work people
What the fuck do I order?
Never eaten tai before
Has anyone ever tried one of these? Not the nut, but the apple.
I've heard they are astringent, but I'm curious as to what the other flavor attributes are.
I've had the fruit. You've to try to avoid the gumminess around the nut. It's very juicy, kind of a mix of a mango and a banana but has more of a bite than either. There is also a sort of stickiness but I can't think of other fruits with that aftertaste.
ITT: food you used to hate but now love
Mushrooms, I don't know what happened but they are now my favourite food. How do you like to cook mushrooms?
Mushrooms as well for me, favourite way is to make garlic mushrooms to have with a steak. Butter, red wine, maybe a touch of balsamic, oregano, salt, and pepper. And obviously mushrooms.
Olives are another for me, used to hate them but I can't get enough now. Especially the ones with garlic cloves in the middle
I remember being like 10 and immediately spitting these out when I tried them. But I can't get enough of them now. At the kitchen I work in we deep fry them for like 1:30 - 2 mins and then toss with sugar and salt and put in candied pecans and drizzle brown butter sauce on top. But I love them in basically anything now.
Is Starbucks a meme? Their coffee isn't even that good. Panera's coffee is better and cheaper. Also, whenever I'm in line behind someone they order shit with whipped cream, chocolate chips, syrup and other shit. How do people consume that much sugar so early in the morning? And they end up paying like $7. Is there some sort of premium for consuming this shit? Baffling.
Can someone let me in on the joke?
What's your favourite donut, /ck/? For me, it's the classic jelly. Nothing compares.
Not trying to be rude, just genuinely interested. How do overweight people get that way? It's hard for me to imagine eating the amount it takes to get up to 300-400 pounds. How often do you overweight posters eat and what are you eating?
I quiet remember how I started to get fat.
Me and my gf were lazy to usually cook [as we had nightshifts] so we order food or eat in fast foods.
I started to get snacky at work at night and eat much more chips and sweet shit then usually + i dunked soda like no tomorrow
I gradually started to get 10 kg up.
Luckily my heart got fucking broken by the aformentioned gf and I lost it all cuz I could not eat anything and I lost all apetite for anything sweet/unhealthy.
Pretty easy. I use to be about 270 before dropping ~100 pounds.
>end up eating out for lunch because fast food is quick and easy
>drink soda without thinking about calories because soda can help you through the day for energy
>get home throw whatever in the microwave or just order a pizza because fuck it work day
>start going out on the weekend drinking...
Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
I've wondered this too. I got up to 210 once and felt disgusted by myself... and the thing was, it took EFFORT to get to that weight, just completely being slovenly. I feel like I'd have to eat all day and night to get to the 300 lb range.
My life as i know it may be over soon. (No not suicide.)
Join me in a last meal /ck/?
Do you ever have foods traditionally associated with breakfast for dinner?
What is your guys' favorite hot sauces? Yucateco XXXtra hot is my go-to right now.
Side note, I went to a mexican restaurant the other night that had the typical sauces on the table, I asked if they had anything hotter and the waiter brought me a cup of sauce from the back that all the mexican cooks make for themselves, it was amazing. Tasted like habeneros, cilantro, and lime juice in an amazing combo
This is my go-to hot sauce when I just want a drop or two on something
I really like the Caribbean sauce on hot dogs, and the red sauce goes great on pasta and sandwiches, never tried the black one and not a huge fan of the xxxtra hot one. What is the green one good on?
Cholula but that's just because I'm a faggot who can't handle too much heat.
