  1. Look in the India cooking forum: https://forums.egullet.org/forum/324-india-cooking-amp-baking/ I hope you find your cooking adventure enjoyable and that you will reach out beyond your comfort foods. The dinner thread has all sorts of cookery, including Indian: https://forums.egullet.org/topic/157787-dinner-2019/ I am fortunate to live in a town in the US with a wide range of cultures and cuisines. Our current mayor (the head of government) is Indian. A former mayor was Chinese. One of my projects is to figure out how to make dosa.
  2. What are you wanting to cook? Regional Indian foods or international? There is a lot of information here, and probably people who can help no matter what your cooking interest.
  3. Spicetrekkers order came as promised. Not that I read French. In my haste to get the package open I shredded the invoice. Too tired tonight to investigate, but it appears there is a lagniappe.
  4. Welcome. Ask here before buying books. How did you find eGullet?
  5. If I had a grain mill (two of which I could have traded for a root canal) I'd start off with commercial yeast.
  6. Never having been in the cookie biz but having been in business, I feel it is unethical to talk to a competitor without identifying oneself as a possible competitor. Besides, you may then find the competitor even more interested to talk to you. Simply ordering product from your competitors is something else again.

    Around here polenta comes in all sorts of different grinds. For my polenta I use white corn meal, as it is said they prefer in Venice. But I am not a cornbread person so carry on.
  8. Amazon says Kindle prices are set by the publishers.

    Dinner 2019

    I shan't be doing much chewing for a while. Thankfully mai tai's do not require mastication.
  10. Other than pizza delivery in college* I've never used food delivery service. Last time the deliveryman was holding a gun on the thief who had poached a piece from my pie. And, no, I did not get a discount. *and once long ago steamed clams for an event.
  11. Would that I could wait till Prime Day.
  12. I will never again -- unless in pain, drunk, or on pills -- drain a stockpot of pasta into my pan of pasta sauce rather than the sink. I have cleaned up the stove.
  13. @Alex you are heard. I'm sliding down the backside of 70 myself. I expect that when the time comes they will escort me out of here with a bucket and a mop. That being said there is a facility near where I live with exceptionally fine cuisine. Or so I am told. I even know some of the residents from work. I hear no complaints. Thing is such a facility is so far beyond my means it's not even funny. Financial stability is not something I can aspire to. And what I would give for wife who loves me.
