so tomorrow I've got an interview for a job at a local Subway, figured I'd ask around /ck/ for stories and experiences from people who have worked for them to help prepare me for what's to come
> ages ago 2004. Still in high school working at subway in evenings.
> One night, big bro douche comes in with a friend, holding gym bags and protein shake.
> orders cold cut trio
> Put meat on ask what veggies he wants
> He leans in and says "chicken"
> Confused, I remind him that more meat is the cost of an extra sub
> He asks for BBQ rib on top of the chicken
> Then fucking asks for pepperoni. Meatballs. No fucking vegetables.
> Make sandwich.
> No veggies, just dead animals
> Wrap that shit. Ring it up.
> Gym bro flips out
> Starts yelling how i ripped him off.
> I open the sandwich and ask him to remove a few things
> Asks me to remove the bread.
> Just fucking slab of meat. Unsure if he's fucking with me
> Ring it up still $47.95
> He's pissed as shit
> Yelling and cussing. My coworker is eating cookies in the back and laughing his ass off from a distance.
> I unhappily unwrap the breadlesd sandwich and take off half of the shit
> New price $23.76
> He buys it and leaves
> Never saw him again
I bought a pork roast for pulling and when I opened it up the bottom edge was still covered in skin. I cut it off and was going to toss it, but I suddenly got the feeling that I was going to miss out on one of those surprisingly delicious old-world dishes made from parts that are usually thrown out.
What would /ck/ do with this little slab of fatty pig skin?
make sure you scorth it proper
Can we have a Thicc/Lewd Food thread

That's almost as bad as the coconut video. If anyone has it, please post it. It's some lady trying to bore a hole into a coconut she's holding in one hand with a fuckhuge knife in the other.
I got these two beef paddies. Whats the best way to prepare them?
I can put them in the oven or make them in a pan. Which would be better? And whats a good temprature/time to make them?
Sorry new to cooking and english is not my first language. They are around 160 grams each.
Medium heat in a pan. Cook each until brown. Now put one on backing tray, pour a1 sauce on it. Put other patty on top and pour a1 over it. Place in oven on 280° for twenty minutes. Sprinkle some bleu cheese on top and serve.
Pan. No question about it.
Get the pan very hot. Put the patties in the pan. Wait until you can see juices at the top of the patties. Flip them. Cook until the juices run clear.
best way is in the oven. Take a grill put them on it put them in a preheated oven and press them in regular intervals to get the fat out. After about 50 minutes they should be perfect!
Hey /ck/ I just met this girl shes a fan of fine quality dining she and I are going on a dinner date but I really want to take her somewhere nice she deserves it. Can you recommend some places around the inland empire in California? I would be willing to go as far Los Angeles.
Have any of you tried Soylent?
I'm thinking about drinking two Soylents a day (800 calories), and a small dinner of something with high protein like tofu, and some greens, and losing weight that way.
I have a habit of stress eating and I think the only way to get rid of it is to have a set diet and to not waver from it. I have the ability for self control - I used to be anorexic even. But I just don't really think about all the food I'm putting into my mouth. This will save me from thinking about it. I'm excited. I have a lot of junk food I...

What do you do with extra egg whites or yolks? I'm always making cakes and ending up with extra of one of those and never have any idea how to use them up.
I don't like just waiting them.
I got some Avocados at home and feel like experimenting with them. Never used them for anything Else but in sandwiches, in salads or as Guacamole. Anyone know any recipies possibly in cooked dishes?
I didn't have desserts in mind. I might look into that as well.
But I'd like to use avocados in a main dish. Don't know what would fit well and cant just test it out myself as I'm on a tight budget.
Gonna show /ck/ my chili recipe.
Start to finish 45mins.
Start by cooking some diced bacon in a heavy-bottomed pot.
I'm interested in seeing your recipe, but I can tell you right now, that if you're only simmering your chili for 45 minutes, it's not good. Chili is meant to simmer for a long period of time, until everything is amalgamated.
Next I season some ground beef with plenty of salt pepper and cumin. I roll it into meatballs.
Flourescent lights in the kitchen makes things look not as colorful on this camera unfortunately.
Is Grilled Cheese overrated or underrated?
What is the deal with this piece of shit?
Share what you eating right now /ck/
I will start with chicken dippers and cookies
did we do this
/ck/, how do you like your eggs? I love the taste of hardboiled ones, but have no idea what to add to them beside salt.
I am tasked with using a banana in a meat marinade. What the fuck do I do?
I'm enjoying fresh heads of radicchio right now as simple salads.
They're horribly bitter, but I still like them. But I don't know if it's because I enjoy bitter flavors or the idea of bitter flavors. Do humans actually like bitterness?
When people buy ultra dark chocolate and black coffee, do we really feel pleasure of the bitter note or is it despite the bitter note?
People have different tastes. I love sour, vinegar loaded foods and will eat pretty much anything that's been pickled.
There is a bit of a theory on bitter though. Kids taste buds really develop around two years old and they tend to go off veggies since they suddenly taste bitter to them- it's thought this might be an evolutionary leftover from when we still foraged to keep children eating random things.
I love bitter flavors. Bitterness cuts really well against fat. Bitter melon with fatty pork, endive baked with Emmental cheese, frisee against anchovies, bacon or duck gizzards. There are lost of examples.
A bag of Jelly Belly's is one of the best deals in candy if not in food. You get 40 flavors. There's so much entertainment per bag. Half a pound is like $4.
Name a better value/cost ratio. Protip: you can't
I have moderate cooking skills and must make a good portable dish for a lady i am trying to get with.
Her birthday is in three days and for a present she asked me to cook her a lunch "like they do in the animes". She says she likes savory, spicy, with beef, and pasta. But anything good would do.
How could i make something that tastes wonderful and also have good presentation after a day?
A little backround on her, her family is vietnamese so that affects her pallet.
Please my dudes, i need to knock this out the of the park.
She's so amazing and this is really my chance to seal the deal. Lend me your power for the greater good, tell me how to wow her.
I put camembert cheese on pizza today. It was soft, creamy and satisfying. I am now curious what other cheeses I should try. Recommend me fancy cheeses.
mix top shelf Gorgonzola and some french Gruyere, use that as your melting cheese.
3/4ths through cooking, open the oven and sprinkle on just a TINY bit of Roquefort. If that is too daring, try bleu cheese instead.
pricy af, but guaranteed a 9/10 pizza.
I make pizza lot by putting white bread, sauce, and two slices of cheddar cheese (plus toppings etc.) in the toaster oven. My girlfriend calls this gross and weird. Is it that weird? My mom made me this all the time growing up and I assumed it was normal.
sofrito into the pan
Why does American pizza have a bad reputation whens its so good
Cheap crappy frozen pizza in european countries is usually labelled as 'American', as are the crap restaurants. Decent pizza tends to be from Italian places with Italian chefs.
Without going to the US it's impossible for Europeans to see if the pizza you make at home is actually any good.
My gf wants to lose a bit of weight and for me to lose a lot of weight, so we have been eating smaller portions of healthy food.
She is a great cook, but I CRAVE fast food a lot of the time. For the last week, I have been eating a fast food combo around 2 pm in secret and then having to eat dinner a few hours later.
She is getting suspicious, because the last couple days I haven't finished my dinner and she said I smelled like grease/McDonalds when she kissed me today.
I am having trouble eating two meals in a few hours. Is there...

Hey you cu/ck/s, I'm moving into my own place next week and am wondering what kind of all-purpose knife I should get, and also how to upkeep it well so that it's sharp.
Anyone know of any good santoku or chef's knife that will pretty much be used for 99% of my cooking prep needs?
I've been looking at pic related but holy shit 90 bucks is expensive. Any suggestions?
Knife and other essential cooking utensils thread, I guess.
Ah, so are you in the Chef's Knife camp?
Also, do you suggest getting a sharpening rod and whetstone for upkeep?
I already have regular eating utensils, I'm just focusing on what I can use to cut and cook.
A lot of companies have "Commercial" or "Work" lines. They're relatively inexpensive, and a lot of times, the only real difference is the ugly yellow/blue/green plastic handle. Those that do use softer steel will need honing and sharpening more often, but I doubt you will work through a knife with standard home use.
>friend and i want to pick something up to eat on the way to a concert
>friend recommends the five guys close by
>place seems nice enough, order two small burgers and two fries
>get bag with all our food in it
>bag is burning to the touch and hot with grease stains on the side and bottom
>we sit down at the table and open it up
>fries literally come pouring out like we ordered a bag full of them
>salt gets all over the table and our food is slathered in grease and salt
>fries taste like absolute shit and i end up bloated, vomit later at the concert
Never went to that place again, there was enough fries in the bag to serve 4-5 people, it was ridiculous.
Any other horror stories from fast food places you guys have?
y'all niggas is some poor motherfuckers
my grandma made this for me when I begged her and she put like a pound of real cheese in it afterwards
