Fuck this shit I'm buying a food scale.
To people who don't drink soda or alcohol, what do you drink?
I want to give up soda but drinking water with everything is awful so far.
Sorry for being born an Amerifat.
I've picked up drinking flavored seltzer water in place of my afternoon beer.
Somewhere along the line, I realized that I was enjoying the carbonation of beer and soda enough that using it on water was enough to let me enjoy it.
>"I won't eat this because only kids eat this."
Is there a more pretentious reason to not eat a certain food?
That's not pretentious. Kid food is designed for a child's undeveloped sense of taste.
Pretentious would be, "I think that type of food is yucky so everyone else must too, and they're all just pretending to enjoy it".

You put cheese in your ramen right? This is le pepperjack, it adds dairy benefit spice and acts as a thickening agent to give a creamy broth
I want ot make some nice pho. I can never get the meat to taste good.
How should I season the meat? For how long? Should it just season in the pho? I seen some places where the cook the meat ahead of time and then drop it in. What do you do? I want to make some for dinner today. Its 4am here.
That shit takes forever dude, just buy it from a legit viet place. If you have that much time for a broth anyway, make Japanese tonkotsu broth instead
what's /ck/'s beverage of choice?
grapefruit is superior
Do you think The Whopper is an appealing burger?
I have 5 pounds of russet potatoes, and no money to eat anything else for the next couple days. How do I make the most of this?
When you say no money do you mean that if you buy anything you'll be in the negatives? Because if you've got a couple of bucks you can go buy a big bag of cheese from walmart and make enough potato gratin to last you a couple of days.
If not, go to your nearest fast food restaurant and steal as many ketchup packets as you can, then either chop them up to bake in the oven as fries or boil them.
I could maybe get a back of shredded cheese with some quarters I have laying around, but yeah, broke. I have some sandwich meat (turkey), some brown rice, a dozen eggs, a serving of raspberry yogurt, mustard and soysauce
This shit is so fucking disgusting. It has the texture of mucus and a flavor that I can't help but compare to vomit. I love Greek yogurt and accidentally bought this because i saw it was on sale. What a fucking mistake.
Can anyone recommend me a use for this shit so I don't have to throw it away?
Crispy or soft?
What's the secret to a great burger /ck/?
/ck/, I need help. I'm trying to learn how to poach eggs, and I'm running into this problem. The eggs fall down to the bottom (because gravity), and then they stick to the bottom of the saucepan and start frying (pic related).
How can I prevent this without using silicone pouches or something? I want to cook five or six at a time, so using stuff like that isn't worth the overhead.
I'm trying to learn a bunch of recipes from gordon ramsay and marco pierre white and they use so much oil and butter and fat it makes me worry I'll become fat.
Is the caloric intake much worse after you cook in oil? Nothing is deep fried or flat out unhealthy but it's like every step requires a really good drizzle of olive oil.
Yeah, they do use a lot of oil/butter, but if you pay attention you'll see that most of stays behind in the pan rather than in your food. You only consume a fraction of the amount of oil used.
Hello /ck/. Can somebody tell me why it's a meme to hate on blue cheese? There is nothing objectively better than boneless buffalo wings with a blue cheese dip. That is a legitimate fact.
>inb4 somebody says "bleu cheese" like a faggot
>nothing objectively better than boneless buffalo wings with a blue cheese dip
There's objectively nothing wrong with bleu cheese dressing. If there's any food that's actually a meme, it's boneless chicken "wings".
I present to you: a perfect pizza.
Perfect in every way.
What do you eat while you are drinking?
I always ate dried squid or caviar when I was drinking.
HELP ME I'VE BEEN TOLD I HAVE TO COOK THIS PORK RIB THING AND I'VE NEVER DONE SO IN MY LIFE
I've been told to make a Memphis dry rub but everything wants msg and I don't know what that is a picture of my spices following
Please don't say melon or orange slices or coffee
>I HAVE TO COOK THIS PORK RIB THING
Do you have a gun to your head? Are you ok anon?
As for the spices in >>7571319 use the paprika, garllic powder, onion powder, cayenne, oregano, salt and black pepper. Mix together and literally rub on the meat. You can add some brown sugar to it if you would like as well.
Not an authentic memphis rub but it would do nicely
If it's your first time, I'd actually suggest not to combine your own spices. Go to a grocery store and find a premade rib-rub that you can use.
My favorite is Famous Daves rib rub or Wee Willie's rub (its more local tho).
This way, you can get an idea of how a rub should taste in general.
Do any of you have your own cookbook or recipe list?
I'm starting to lose track of the stuff that I made and liked, and want to also have a printed version that looks nice
At the moment I have a bunch of bookmarks but that's not very handy
In lack of a more relevant picture, I've used the last thing I made
The worst part of working in a bagel shop is waiting for your dumb ass to decide.
get a job that a stoned 15 year old can't do and maybe the work environment won't suck OP.
...you are probably too useless for any kind of skilled labor desu so enjoy your dead end job/life. now go make me my food you fuckin pleb.
I bought some Austrian smoked cheese, just had a bit on its own, pretty nice
anyone got any nice recipes to use it in?
had a bit more cut in slices with some slices of slami and pepperoni, mmm delicious
not got any macaroni, I assume you can make it with any pasta? boil the pasta till cooked, drain, then back in pan and mix in the cheese over a low heat?
Does it matter to you where food is produced? And, more specifically, can foods like gorgonzola, mozzarella or sake only be genuine if they are made in their region or nation of origin?
It depends on if the flavor change is noticeable.
Yes they can be genuine
Apart from parmesan cheese (wood filler, anyone?) I don't really care where foods are made.
>work in italian restaurant
>owner serves second best of everything
second best parmesan cheese
second best olive oil
>customers can't tell the difference
>owner saves a lot of money
What's a good recipe for mac and cheese? I want something that will give me a nice, cheesy sauce like pictured.
/ck/ will bully me, but i think you should use a mix of processed cheese (e.g. velveeta) and real cheddar. like 50/50.
velveeta makes everything smooth and silky. real cheese for the flavor and richness.
How seriously do Italians take their pasta?
I once asked a Korean lady shilling marinade if it was good for making bulgogi, and her eyes became almonds then explained the recipe and procedure.
I'm pretty sure Holly was baiting though. My first thought was that American housewives would shut this show down so fast
Italians used to take their pasta more seriously. They used to make it fresh often and demand it be fresh in restaurants. Now many of them boil dried Barilla or some other such shit. In certain regions though, you'll still find that they're pretty serious about their pasta.
futurist italians take pasta VERY seriously.
the others are just so familiar with it i would imagine they take it for granted. but when they see other people fuck it up it annoys them.
and the whole 'al dente' thing is just fetishised by people into restaurant culture, it is not a particularly italian thing, everyone likes texture in their food.
Why the fuck are you even making this shit up? This isn't reddit eith upboats and other general faggotry. Pasta has always been mostly dried because it has a very long shelf life and it was important, ask any Italian what kind of pasta they prefer and the answer will always be dried and it's been like that for centuries.
You can now only eat two types of ethnic/national foods. What are they?
"Fusions" permitted as long as they're actual styles
Excludes beverages i.e. your decision doesn't limit what you can drink
Common sense broad definitions. (You can say "Chinese" food to mean the collective exported cuisine of East Asia)
Italian: Delicious cured meats, excellent cheeses, awesome pasta, good meat dishes too.
Indian: 30 types of bread, best vegetarian dishes, nice variety. Less poo if I make it myself.
My new memepan arrived. What dish should I take its virginity with?
In what way has living abroad changed your palate?
What do you miss?
What have you brought back from abroad?
A few things I've taken on from three years living in Germany and traveling a small bit in Europe:
>A love of pickled and sour things
Pickles from Poland, Sauerkraut, Berliner Weisse
Everywhere in Germany, and amazing. Sigara borek, adanas, antipasti (filled peppers, paprika feta chees mix, the olives etc.) and the veggie kebabs (with latkas, haloumi, makale...

I work a lot in Afghanistan. The bases over there are like 50% populated by people from India and Nepal.
I eat so much damned Indian food for like 3 or 6 months at a time, but the time I get back on US soil its nice to just have something simple like a BLT. All their stuff is sooo heavily spiced. They always have the best tea though.
I hear that. I love Indian food, but I couldn't eat it more than once a week.
You need to mix up the bland with the flavoursome.
That said, in India, street food like grilled corn-on-the-cob, bhatura/bhatoora, and poppadom and popular, from what I can gather.
I could eat Turkish food all day, though -- it's like a perfect bridge between Indian and European cuisine -- not as complex as Indian in terms of spices, so you can taste individual ingredients. Also, it's never overly spiced. Sometimes...

Are you a chef or do you know any IRL? What is it about that particular industry that attracts degenerates? I'm not saying all chefs are degenerate but theres a strong correlation. I know one who went to culinary school and went on to work in several kitchens. He was a heavy all day drinker, smoker, drugger, tatted up miscreant. He was like that before becoming a cook though. I remember on my off days I'd go to his place and we'd be pounding whiskey shots and smoking all day and come 3 or 4 o clock he'd be like "alrite I got work in a few, see you guys...

Yea I remember he just walked away from at least a couple jobs and he'd have another job in a few days. He says he would just go to a restaurant and prove he could do shit and they would hire him.
My first job was at a restaurant I wasn't always a heavy smoker or drinker since I started working in a restaurant at times it can get stressful due to stupid customers and shitty waitresses. I normally smoke a joint after my shift to get me though my day and once I'm done I go to a bar or one of my friends house have a few drinks and repeat.
Alright. It's 13 hours until I'm going to a great restaurant for a shit ton of food. I've been to this place several times before but have never quite made it through the evening. This time, is going to be different. I'm using training techniques more commonly used by eating contest participants. Over the course of the last week, I've been stretching my stomach using water. I've had a decent meal last night, I've been stretching my stomach with food. I've taken a laxative to clear out my stomach over the course of today, I'm drinking a shit ton of water to help stretch my stomach out. I'm going on a five mile run and the gym today. I'm not going to eat a thing today either until I'm at the table and they start bringing me the food.
Does /co/ prepare before hand if they know they're going to be faced with an inordinate amount of good food?
Have you ever had any good instant coffee?
