  1. I think there are a few hi-ends (not those discussed) that are more prone, whether shitty construction or fancy features that eventually get fried. I remember when I was researching how beautiful and economical (compared to other hi-ends) the Bertazzoni's were but I found many complaints in the blogs. I think Miele was another.

    No worries, we'll work Spain in too!
  3. Very reliable. Daily usage for 8yrs. Only 1 thermometer but no discernable temp issues. Only regret is not getting the bigger 48' w the griddle and extra 'baby' oven but alas we were running out of space. (The extra $5g factored too : ) I'll come for you one day, my love!
  4. We have the Thermador 36'- 6 burner (bought 8yrs ago). Love the simplicity and construction. No issues, just a cpl minor inconveniences. The oven exhaust comes out the back, automatically at 350, is a bit loud (probably typical) and blows on the burners a bit. The back ones are more impacted (just need to turn them up a bit). We took advantage of a nice promotion (still running it appears) where if you buy a range you're applicable for a free hood or dishwasher. We went w the dw (Bosch for Thermador I believe) and it's never given us a problem. Here's the brochure if c

    Well, we were thinking of Spain post covid but after these pics I think we'll just come and stay with you. We'll be a family of 4 (kids 12 & 7) ok?
  7. Really? I'd think fresh meat trumps rancid. And since dog has been on the menu for ages figure they must know what to do with it. No idea on lion. Which ones get the virility excuse?
  8. And why 2 storks? I guess, if I had to choose, gun to my head and all, I'd go; Impala, dog, stork, iguana, lion, monkey, chimp and finally, vulture (no chef in the world can make that appealing)
  9. And a wonderful timesaver when finishing multiple creme brulees!
  10. My sister has been preaching the need to do more than rinse for years. I think she uses that Veggie Wash All Natural (amzn). Dawn too for some stuff w seems nuts. We've argued over the need. We'll continue to do no more than wash thoroughly while we await news of the side affects from using these products.

    I'm almost ashamed to post a salmon pic after that beautiful ramen above by Liamsaunt. Bravo! Panko crusted baked salmon teriyaki w braised broccoli and onion over jasmine. Sprinkle of ponzu.

    Nice dish. I'm hungry now. De Cicco is on the higher end, a special occasion for us, but you do get some points for going mass market. I'm curious how they came to that trio of flours. I wonder if we did a taste test if we could pick out the Italian.
  13. Yea, it's tough to lump them in one cat. I've had some really nice versions in bbq, soul, pubs, at home, etc. but would never choose the boxed. I like some sauce but worse is when the cheese breaks. That said, Annie's is on a whole other level of horrible. I would do a 10 course tasting w kraft before an amuse of Annie's.
  14. Though I know they exist I haven't found any real discernable differences from the obscure Asian mrkt varieties to the Kikkoman's of the world. For a while I thought low-sodium was the way to go but found it to be no more than a watered down version of regular so I usually get it and cut it w water when desired. Of course someone had to come up w a recent best of https://www.thespruceeats.com/best-soy-sauces-4691499

    Gluten free! Did it come w seasoning? I would go more Asian over Italian.

    And can I just ask who was genius who thought to add perfectly good lobster?

    Kraft is actually delicious compared to Annie's. Whatever they do, guessing the organic components, makes it severely offensive. (You'd have to be 3x higher than normal and have not eaten in a week to force it down). My kids love it though.

    And I imagine you're not even referring to the boxed stuff? Sample any of the Annie's organic line and see new meaning in 'sucks'. Try to refrain from cutting your tongue off.
  19. I read the name of this thread rather quickly and well, there's probably something wrong with me for what I first registered.

    Thank you, yes, cooked (still hot) when combined w the pork in the pan. Coco milk prevented clumping then spooned in the squash and broiled for 5min. It was so much better than we imagined. Loosley based on this recipe: https://kateslyon.com/stuffed-acorn-squash/

    Acorn squash roasted, stuffed and browned, mix of ground pork, rice, coconut milk, parsley, sage, garlic, onion, other stuff. First time. Was really nice. The contrast of the sweetness in the squash against the mixture worked really well. Under consideration for the TG menu!
  22. Agree, love the pics. Could see them blown up, hanging on a kitchen wall, a modern one. I do wonder about the varying cook times of the beans vs the rice in the mixture. Dry kidneys can take 2hrs vs the rice, about 20min? Does the rice get cooked that long or do they do something to the beans to cook faster?
  23. Love your color choices esp the cabinets! G-luck!

    Me too. Love the slippery-ness and flex from the straw hole. One of the restos I worked in served it "ala Siciliana" - basically a chunky marinara w sautéed eggplant topped w a large dollop of ricotta. Simple yet delicious. Amicable customers were often warned, offered bibs or spoons to swirl and contain. It didn't go well for the trouble makers.

    I sure I'd be just fine with it. Now, San Giorgio and Ronzoni? That's were I draw the line!
