  1. This feels like one of those things that I convince myself to buy in an exhausted haze at 1:00am because Merry Christmas to me or my birthday is in January or my wife probably wouldn't care. Probably.

    Food recalls

    Ah OK, in my head that sounds more like lettuces, spinach, greens, etc but can see where broccoli before harvest can be considered leafy.

    Can you share where you read this warning? Because it seems insane to throw out cruciferous veg like broccoli and cauliflower when the CDC specfied Romaine lettuce.

    Dinner 2019

    There are words and stuff here but all I am able to see is that lovely cheese next to whatever that green stuff is
  5. As a mostly-Greek guy with a half Turkish/half Russian last name, welcome! Also love coffee.
  6. Oh god, this is the best thing I've read in a while. Reminds me of when my dad told me that cotton candy in Greek is "malli tis grias" which means "old lady hair". All I could think was "EW gross who the hell wants to eat old lady hair" but apparently you guys are good with mouse shit in Belgium so I just don't know anymore.
  7. This is the correct question
  8. Maybe saucers missing their cups? I normally come here to relax.
  9. Could it maybe be just a sort of fancy set of serving plates for pastries, bread, charcuterie, or other dry stuff? I can't imagine anything else but service ware with those felt bottoms.
  10. Here's the company at least, though I didn't dig much deeper Art d'Inox
  11. We have a corner cabinet in our current setup that I also hate. It has a lazy susan which is fine for things that fit in the height/width constraints of the platters, but inevitably some stuff needs to be taken apart to fit ie my food processor, blender, etc. Have you looked at anything like this? Corner drawers If I had to live with it I would probably do something like this, but in all honesty it will probably get ripped out when I get the kitchen remodeled.
  12. I know this is totally unrelated, but I feel exactly the same way about buying tickets for things online, movies, concerts, etc. It just always feels like "Oh here's a buzzword we can charge you a few dollars for so why not?". I don't really visit Pizza Hut very much, and I'm in Nor Cal, but just reading this is enough to put me off them for good.
  13. I sometimes feel this way too, but then I go and eat a pie I made or something and it goes away.

    Ah OK that makes more sense, in my head it was salted caramel Red Bull.
  15. Yiasou Athena! You will love this place, so much to learn and play with, courtesy of the wonderful minds who hang out here. Edit: to be clear, I am not one of those people hahaha... ☹️

    Man I don't know what bothers me more, the glass or the fact that a salted caramel "energy drink" exists at all.
  17. Welcome! I never know what to say so here's some music/a namesake: Edvard Grieg - Arietta

    Yuzu juice

    Sorry to revive an old thread, but on a recent trip I too purchased this same bottle of yuzu as @ElsieD did and was wondering if anyone had any more yuzu ideas or recipes to kick around. I did a little digging and found that this particular brand/style of juice is a little different from other yuzu juice I have tried. It is made from the second pressing of the fruit, after being juiced for drinking, and so while similar in flavor I think it is meant more for culinary use. Drinking it straight it is incredibly sour with a slight bitter note, but I'd imagine it would do well in things like sorbets or granitas, maybe cocktails. I like the salad dressing idea up above too. Anyway, was curious if anyone out there had discovered anything else interesting to make with this stuff.

    David Lebovitz has a fig ice cream in his book The Perfect Scoop which is pretty good, assuming you are OK with the texture of the seeds as they are sort of tough to strain out of the thick base (I never bother). I also like to just freeze figs whole in bags to eat out of hand, they are really good cold like this if you let them soften just for a minute or two. Also brulee them to use as an accompaniment to desserts. Edit: here's the ice cream
  20. Sounds like you just need some tortilla chips
