Hey lads, German-English Anon here:
I'm sending a parcel of presents to the German half of my family in Hanover, what are some good English food and drink I can include?
Here's what I've got currently
>M&S Jam jars
Obviously the food has to have a long best-eaten-before date and not be too fragile.
Jesus these fries are good. Small restaurants ftw
Pic related was voted best burger for 2014 and 2015.
They fry their fries in beef tallow...fucking amazing.
Do you have a problem with people taking pictures of their food?
What does /ck/ think of bottled/canned/gas station tea?
Cheaper to make it by yourself to be honest
Just puree a fruit cup of peach and put in with some black tea
It really shows how much sugar you're drinking when you try to add enough to taste even remotely like snapple
All I have is macaroni, what do?
>go into subway for the first time
>order a cold cut combo foot long
>guy starts making my sandwich
>2 girls walk in
>he takes their order while making my sandwich and stops midway to start making their sandwich
>get confused and leave
Does every Subway do this?
Yeah because halfway through he looked at you, realized you could probably afford to pay for the girls' sandwiches with your autism bux, and decided to try and be slick with them also realizing you'd be too beta to do anything about it.
Some of you guys are alright. Don't go to Olive Garden tomorrow.
Poor fag here,
I heard a rumor that if you call and complain about the service you received at Chipotle they will give you a free burrito no questions asked...
Does anyone know any free food tips and tricks?
>tfw you're with friends or a girl and you have to restrain yourself from scraping the melted cheddar of the burger wrapper with your teeth
Life is truly suffering.
Look /ck/, I made burgers!
Upon tasting them I can honestly say that they're not the worst thing I've ever made.
What the fuck is wrong with them?
They have a disturbing red color to them, are hardly seared and look like there's raisins mixed into the meat.
Also that disgusting looking mayo/ketchup swirled mess on the buns. Ugh.
Hey, dudes. What's your favorite pretzel today?
>mfw Americans unironically enjoy half baked "pretzels" that they dip in a glowing orange gloop they call "cheese sauce"
It's revolting on so many levels.
I'm in the market to purchase a quality chef's knife, and I was looking at Shuns as I heard many positive things about them.
I was looking at http://www.amazon.com/Shun-VB0706-Chefs-Knife-8-Inch/dp/B00BQ83BCE/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1446745264&sr=8-2&keywords=shun+chef+knife
Should I get this knife? It's in my budget. I was also planning on getting a paring knife too at some point.
Shun is a fine knife. It's not the best from a cost/performance analysis but they're well made, they use good steel, and most people find them comfortable to use.
If you don't have the means or the inclination to maintain them, then of course you're wasting your money buying something that nice. If you want easy mode and have money to burn, get an edge pro and any knife (vg10 knives from non-memebrands can be had for much cheaper than shun)
Are ceramic knives worth it?
and any good ones i should look into getting?
No. They're literally meme knifes.
Buy a whetstone, or even a jig if you're too lazy
Even a new ceramic knife isn't as sharp as what you can do on stones. They're impressive to people who know nothing about knives, and they take longer to get even duller compared to steel. But they will get dull, and let's think about this for a second. You don't like sharpening your steel knives, and you're about to get a knife that takes special equipment and skills to sharpen. What do you think the end result will be?
I'd like to buy a cookbook. Is there any accepted /ck/ staple reading that I should check out first?
What books did you start with? What books had the most impact on you?
I enjoy the science of cooking by america's test kitchen and the food lab by the guy who runs the serious eats website. Both tell you the whys of your cooking, and have done rigorous testing.
