    Pasta shapes

    I heard they're good at making only one thing..... Reservations (I know I know, that one is as old as the horrible taste of kasha)

    Ooof, kasha, it's been a long time and one of the very few things I never need to taste again. Imagine oat meal cooked in windex w a sprinkle of strong body odor. No thx. 🤮

    Don't worry little buddy, after they perfect the pink pineapple they'll figure out how to grow them back.
  5. You take one look at these and feel so stuffed there's zero desire to try them. (Maybe not a bad thing if looking to cut back : ) And how about that 2.5 Health Star rating (out of 5?)? What's the logic behind that system? What gets a one?
  6. I think I'd be more with you if there was a purported benefit or problem they claimed the pink pineapple addresses. Is there? 🍍🍍
  7. Holy sheatzou, I've never seen a soup pool before. Outdoor no less. Amazing. Too many questions. (Like why's that bone getting tossed in so late in the dish and did the pool have to meet any 'health' standards before using it this way etc, etc.)
  8. It's like Monsanto slipped Del Monte a mickey and this is the result.
  9. Yep, appears a house cleaning is in order. I wonder, over the last several years, internet related or other, if the awards hold the same prominence they once did. Maybe just me, but I hardly think of them anymore.
  10. Sad state of affairs and a nice (thorough) piece by Bonjwing (aka Ulterior Epicure) https://www.eater.com/2020/10/13/21509303/james-beard-awards-2020-results-canceled-controversy
  11. The best Indian (of the ubiquitous Punjabi variety) I've sampled was in London, followed closely by Christchurch, NZ. The worst was in Bangkok. The best up-scale/fusionish place was here in NYC. A place called, Devi, which many considered ground breaking and the start of new genre. I'm not sure this thread has any clear direction but I like it all the same 🤪
  12. Wow, beautiful place and the samplings look de-lish! One day I'll get to all 3 spots. I want a baked potato w caviar, a porchetta sandwich some wings followed by some vegan stuff for cleansing. Samosas perhaps? Really amazing how you juggle all this! Nice going and good luck! 💪👨‍🍳
  13. Was thinking about this story. I wonder the public reaction here if the case had made it to the US supreme court.

    Oooh, that looks handy and why did you have to show me this? Given our tofu consumption (not so much) and assorted gadgets not often used, I don't know if I would win the 'need vs cabinet space' argument. Might be worth fighting for, we'll see. Thank you! 👍
  15. I digress (ever so slightly). The taste of the bread is not as horrifyingly offensive as the smell of it baking. Go figure and I'm sorry about your deli options. Chris, don't tell us what's in the cold cuts. I haven't eaten lunch yet.

    Thank you all for the tofu comments/advice! I feel better prepared for the next dish!
  17. You're not missing anything I promise you. I used to work near one so I was confronted daily. Constantly wondering what shit ingredients/preservatives could cause it. Not quite on par with what Jared did but still a crime.
  18. I never thought the smell of bread baking could be foul until I walked by a Subway.

    Shain, All, what kind of tofu do you use and how do you treat it before marinating or cooking? I typically use a firm or extra firm like Nasoya then cube and dry with what seems like half a roll of paper towels before anything. Do folks do this or have other methods? Once I baked at a low temp for almost an hour but those little sponges were still wet. For a stir fry I sear them in a bit of veg or peanut oil to get a crust so they don't fall apart, remove and than return when the dish is close to complete. Am I wasting time? I love tofu but haven't used it enough to get comfy. Tofu,
  20. Nice guide, very funny! I remember that spirt. We drank a decent amount on our trip. Reminded me of the worst bottom shelf vodka w just a whisper of sake. One night, after a few too many shots, I remember my vision blurring and thinking I might go blind. Always wished to get invited to a meal like this but it doesn't appear likely given burb's life and limitations on meeting new people. The kids are our only hope. I encourage them to be-friend anyone who isn't American, especially Asians, for just the chance to cozy up to the parents and get them them to cook for us. Is that

    Amazing pics, both frame worthy. If you zoom in, just next to the house, you can see the tops of extremely wild portobellos aka 'Gros champignon avec du sable' ripe for the picking!

    Orecchiette w de-cased pork sausage, cubed chick breast, spinach, red pepper, G&O pesto sc topped w a blasphemous shaving of smoked gouda w added an interesting profile (largely a result of someone forgetting to replenish the DAMN GRATED CHEEESE! : )
  23. Oh, didn't see that. I'm confused. it's ok to bring a 20lb (bbq) propane tank indoors? Or in my case, if you use a propane stove, disconnect the line and plug it into this baby? Or get a separate line for the occasional use? Who would do that?
  24. I think the pic misleadingly implies you can use it indoors.
