  1. Expecting any little robots soon?
  2. Nor should you open the door with your face too close during a steam cook.
  3. Yup, exactly. CSO>>>IP I have an IP and never use it. My stovetop PC is faster and bigger...I use it for stock mainly.
  4. I finally found something that the CSO doesn't do well. Roasted cauliflower. It needs to brown and dry out a little, but even set to cook with the steam off the CSO is so well gasketed that the water from the cauliflower turns into steam and doesn't escape. So the veg steam cooks anyway.

    Favorite diet soft drinks?

    Re diet tonic water. Schweppes is much better than Canada Dry which it too sweet.
  6. I recall searching Open Table for restaurants in Erie. All I got was a truck stop and glorified pizza places. Is it really that grim in Pennsylvania's 3rd largest city? ETA: looks like I asked this a year ago LOL. Open Table now has 15 restaurants. A couple look good...few chains (including Firebirds which is pretty good at what it does)
  7. Finding a raisin in my food is like finding a chewy cockaroach in there. Coconut tastes odd and has that woody thing going on. Cilantro...soapy stinkbug Lamb chops...nice. Lamb roast? The smell is vile...if anyone at the table orders it, my meal is ruined.
  8. What a cool idea and what an unsatisfying video and text. Talk about burying the lead (or " lede "if you must). Awkward cooks, no description of the food...what the hell are those red veg... Does neither the food or the history justice. But what a neat topic. I'm going to go check the book of Daniel and see if there is more detail.
  9. Yup. Beets taste like dirt. Buy I always liked dirt.

  13. Indeed. Bloomfield is a villain here. Maybe the most egregious one short of Batali/Friedman. BTW I've never had a bite of her food, but I never liked her refusal to take blue cheese off a hamburger. Over-inflated self regard. (And just to defang the chef as artist argument...this isn't like telling Whistler to paint his mother with a smile. Its a burger...in fact, my burger...I commissioned it).
  14. One would think a NYT columnist would be able to compose a tweet that makes sense and actually says something. Clearly I expect too much.
