  1. In the kitchen I work in mainly everything using oil is 75/25 soy/olive mix. Exceptions being all eggs are cooked in clarified butter, and some pickups are clarified>whole butter to finish.

    Garlic Powder

    In the pro kitchens Ive worked in, garlic powder is a no go. Everyone uses granulated, ive found it keeps the flavor longer as well, perhaps due to not being as finely ground?

    those are the ones im referring to, i want to get some more for work since i have one Kunz spoon already. but being that they are way more costly i was hoping that the richland would be a cost effective alternitive for the workplace

    Can someone tell me if there is any difference between the Richland and the kunz sauce spoons? The website description is the same but I would like to hear from someone who has both side by side. Thanks in advance
  5. I would say the Peterson fish and shellfish book has been very helpful to me in the professional setting as well as the culinary artistry book by dornberg and page. Both of those for conceptual development of dishes. For technique I would suggest pro chef or other textbook of the like. For terminology the food lovers companion is an indespensable reference.
  6. Both places at the Book Cadillac hotel in detroit are excellent choices for dining. For drinks I would suggest the Royal Oak Brewery or Detroit Beer Co. The nightlife is probably the best in Royal Oak compared to the scene in Detroit.
  7. I would love a vac sealer, or some supplies to try some molecular gastronomy experiments.
  8. I always have music on in my kitchen, but during service it will usually be turned down.
  9. Ive got some crocs and i love them, the only thing that makes them better are some smartwool socks. a bit hot but they wick the moisture away and provide much better cushioning than regular socks
  10. you aren't supposed to put knives in the sink thats dangerous
  11. If you like quality beer i would suggest Dragonmead in Warren. Its just off 696. http://www.dragonmead.com/Beers.html Edit to say - They have a huge beer menu but no food besides bar snacks. They have a huge binder of take out and delivery places that you can order from.
  12. Is it possible to make pearls using a beer? Or does the carbonation prevent this?
  13. ive burned my hand cleaning out a fryer that would be by far the worst burn ive had. it was about 1/2" bubble on the back of my hand. once I drained the blister i could barely put my hand over the grill to check my meat.
  14. I am a Royal Oak local, and i would suggest first off right in-town, the Royal Oak Brewery. Fantastic beers, and a menu that is both american comfort food, as well as a twist on bar favorites. In addition to that the absolut best mexican in the area is Taqueria Lupita. $1 tacos and a meal for 2 under $20, is unbeatable, especially considering what is offered. Redcoat as mentioned above is great food and they usually have a few good micobrews on tap.
