what is the best kind of fruit?
Is it normal to eat popcorn and get them motha fuckin kernels stuck in your gums? I made some shit and the next day I pulled some of them cock suckers out of my teeth
Lunch at Ted's Cafe Escondido in Oklahoma City
I've been eating at this place pretty regularly for about 17 years. It is unquestionably the best Tex-Mex I've had anywhere and the service is ALWAYS flawless.
Usually it's at least a 15-20 minute wait to get a table but we beat the after church rush by a few minutes and got seated immediately
each table is give a complimentary "set up" of tortilla chips, queso dip, salsa, escabeche. flour tortillas and corn tortillas

>LOOK AT ME I AM SUCH A CHEF I PUT BAY LEAFS IN EVERYTHING EVEN THOUGH THEY DON'T DO ANYTHING EXCEPT CUT THE ROOF OF YOUR MOUTH
>CUT THE ROOF OF YOUR MOUTH
You need to blend your bay leaf into a fine paste so it doesn't cut you anon.
I also sprinkle bay leaf powder on pretty much everything. It has replaced salt, pepper and Parmesan in my house.
We named our son Bay.
So /ck/ dumpster diver here from >>7531722
Time to make dinner tonight. Most of the stuff was harvested from a dumpster, some purchased and some 'gifted'. The sausages were going to be thrown out by my sister in law because they've "been in the freezer for too long" guess its time to eat them. They were given to her by her in laws therfore making them... well i dont know fuck. free to me.
Some cabbage heads (dumpster) carrots (bought, a few here probably worth 30 cents Saukraut...

dumpster cabbage.... Looks good to me. took off the outer 3 or so layers. Why not- its from the dumpster
Captcha= select frenchfries... fuck did i go wrong?!
Stella Artois is the most overpriced shit beer I've ever had. It's piss that's advertised as a fancy beer. It's a scam
What's some other overpriced/overrated food stuffs?
I had a rather embarrassing experience today during an otherwise delicious meal at a Michelin starred restaurant.
For the first time in what must be twenty years I decided to try cod again. There was nothing I hated more than Fridays at school when the only option was cod - I fucking hated that bitter, dry aftertaste and the way it requires infinite chewing before I could swallow it. I have actively avoided eating cod my entire life for the fear that I'd throw up if I tried to eat it again.
In that time I've got over plenty of other food phobias and...

Cant eat bananas.
Tried again recently and the moment i took the first bite i knew i couldnt go on, i almost puked.
i have no idea why but something about the texture just dosent work for me.
>I have actively avoided eating cod my entire life for the fear that I'd throw up if I tried to eat it again.
There's a term for this that I can't remember right now but that's your problem right there. Self fulfilling anxiety attack or something.
Things people do that make you want to quit cooking?
My father will never add enough seasoning to things, like if he uses the taco seasoning packs he'll put one pack into like 3 pounds of beef.
what about you?
What's the most you've ever paid for a mixed drink??
Paid fucking $15 one time for a bougie ass Bloody Mary in San Francisco, not worth
$15 is pretty average for me but I don't live in a gastronomically blighted flyover state.
I don't really know the most, if I recall correctly the gin and tonic I got at the Ozone Bar on the 118th floor of the IFC in Kowloon was absurdly expensive, I want to say it came to around $30 USD but it was in funny money and it was a few years ago so my memory isn't that accurate. Then again the view was pretty great and they know it.
What does "bougie" mean? Is it black slang for something?
Is there any real coffee addiction, or is it just a meme?There is opinion that coffee addiction would be real thing after decades of regular drinking.Can someone with such expirience confirm/bust that myth?
from personal experience caffeine withdrawal can be very unpleasant, these days i keep coffee as just an occasional treat instead of an everyday necessity. once a week tops
Yes, you can become physically addicted to caffeine.
Like pot, though - which isn't physically addictive - most of it is just lifestyle and habitual use, and not wanting to give up the things you've grown accustomed to enjoying.
People who say they wont survive without their morning cup of coffee aren't the same as people who need to go out for a cigarette every couple hours.
>Got into fight with employee, might be banned from Chipotle location. Was I wrong?
So after church this morning, I stopped to grab lunch at Chipotle like always. The one near me is in a VERY busy parking lot. Often there are no empty spaces at all. The only one I could find today had this sign: pic in OP
My logic was that I was going to Chipotle, even though I didn't "order ahead". I either had to park there or they'd lose my business. I wasn't going to eat there- I'd be in the restaurant for 5 minutes...

What is the easiest meal on a practical level, that allows one to perfect the most technical techniques at the same time?
e.g. it would be so easy to make a raw salad but at the same time you could hone stuff like flavour-balancing, chopping accuracy, presentation, etc.
I ask because it feels like focusing on hard meals makes you rush through all those little elements just to get a success on the basic practical level. Also this question is about home-cooking, nothing professional.
Getting take-away tonight
Is Singapore noodles healthy? Compared to say, Indian, Fish & chips etc?
Is there anything in it bad for people who get acne?
Does anyone else here love hash browns?
Those are tots. These are hashbrowns.
What is your go to pizza topping(s)? Mine are bacon, pepperoni, and salami.

What's your go to pack of gum? I used to buy stride and 5 gum but lately I've just been getting good old pic related due to cost.

Okay that one is totally stupid - "ethical" does not give any indication as to what the food tastes like or the method of preparation
So, long story short, I've been making my own bread for around six months because I was not satisfied by supermarket bread an there weren't enough bakeries around. I'm no professionnal, but it's good enough.
Has anyone of you ever tried to? What was it like? What are your tastes in bread? Any advice/question?
I'm going to be roasting a chicken later in the oven. What is the best way to get a crispy skin?
Do I start high first, get it crispy, then cover and finish? Or do I cover, roast it, then uncover and finish on high?
You need to get rid of the water in, on and near the skin, since the water acts as a regulator towards 100°C. Crispy simply means dehydrated, and browning occurs only above the boiling point of water. So you want to pat it dry, and leave enough time for water to evaporate. You don't want the bird covered in steam once the skin is crisp since it can turn soggy again from condensation. You want to cover with oil because it is hydrophobic and thereby accelerates heat transfer and water displacement, and facilitates Maillard
This explanation is reasonable but
this is insufficient, the best thing is to pat dry the night before, and cover in coarse salt, and place on a rack in the fridge, uncovered. This draws out as much water as possible from the surface
then in the morning, when it's time to cook the bird, scrape off all the salt, and brush it with oil
I'm wanting to get a mortar and pestle for several reasons. Which one(s) would /ck/ recommend? Stone? Wood? Something else?
Why? Does it do something an electric grinder can't? It seems less versatile, even. Like, I wouldn't want to use it for the flax I put in my oatmeal. Has the electric motor made them obsolete?
Well, the main thing that comes to mind is turning minced garlic to paste, but there may be other ways that I am unaware of, as I have never into cooking. I also enjoy taking pomegranate seeds and crushing them manually in a mortar & pestle to get some pomegranate juice.
What does wild boar taste like? I want to eat a while roasted wild boar like Obelix.
think there's something wrong with my egg /ck/
>sugar free lemon bars
>"and now we add a cup of honey"
People believe honey is more "wholesome" even though it's pretty much sugar isolate like any refined sugar. If you want it to actually be healthier, you can sweeten with dates or other fruit. You can buy "date sugar" which is dried and ground dates. It's expensive.
Currently making pizza with pizzarolls in the crust, what are you making /ck/?
Boston Baked GMOs: https://youtu.be/DUtM_KN-Y2g
He's right. GMO food is one of the most interesting developing sciences right now. I can't wait to see what they do with it in the future. Monsanto is pretty fucking shitty and dubious though.
Concerns about Roundup are valid. The "active" ingredient seems benign in isolation, but Roundup also contains solvents and surfactants that make it quite a bit worse. Do I need to link some science?
inb4 mythical golden rice
Due to a fuck-up, my refrigerator has been unplugged for about 24 hours. I just plugged it back in now. I was wondering how much food I'll have to throw away. I feel like most of the stuff in the fridge would have been able to keep at what must've been marginally below room temperature (if just for one day) but I'm still hesitant. As for the stuff in the freezer, I know there's a rule of thumb to never refreeze anything that's thawed, but I went grocery shopping yesterday, so the meat that was in there was never frozen to begin with. Here's some key items:
Fridge: Milk, eggs, butter, deli meats and cheeses, strawberries, blueberries, yogurt
Freezer: Various meats, frozen pirogi, mixed chopped vegetables, onion rings, a frozen pizza
What do I have to toss? Or will I be mostly fine fine?
Fuck. I think that I might have opened it two times in this 24-hour period: once after dinner to get something to drink and put food away, and once this morning to get some water. I opened my freezer twice to get some booze out, and put booze back in after going to a friend's.
Fun fact, the whole reason I unplugged it was because I needed to change the lightbulb. But I had gotten the wrong one, so there was no light in the fridge for this time.
Non american here. What is American cuisine like? What spices, vegetables and cuts of meat do they use?
Depends. We eat everything. Lots of international food, lots of our own food that is being sold as international food like "mexican food" and "chinese food". We have the authentic stuff too but most stuff is our own that was just inspired by foreign food. We eat a lot of beef, chicken, and pork. Most popular vegetables are potatoes, tomatoes, lettuces, peppers, and onions. The most common spices are black pepper, garlic, cayenne pepper.
Right now I'm eating smoked boudain, it's a regional sausage made from rice, pork, liver, and herbs/spices. For lunch I had a bowl of chicken and smoked sausage gumbo, also a regional food. Most of the country doesn't eat this normally but here it's completely normal. Whereas other parts of the country have regional things they eat all the time that I'd rarely eat or maybe haven't even heard of. People forget how big and regional America is.
Has anyone ever had real moonshine? Not the stuff you buy in the store
I was given a jar of it by my cousin who was visiting her friend in North Carolina
Haven't tried it yet.
