Hey guys,

I need advice.

I am unsure if I want to be a chef. I've worked in a restaurant environment since I was 16 (I'm 19 now) so I know how intense it can get at times. That's what bothers me though, I'm pretty sure I'm going to an hero from the stress and work hours, but then again I'm very passionate about food and cooking. I'd love the idea of making my own food and managing a kitchen.

I'm not sure if I want to commit to something like this though, is it really all that bad? Any chefs/culinary arts students have words of encouragement/discouragement.

what could you add to enhance a plain homemade pasta to really maximize the dish? dried mango powder? grinded hemp seeds ...? what could work, or maybe it turns out shit if you tweak it like this

Baking at low temp

Let say the same casserole goes in the oven, one for 175c 30 minutes, the other 75c for 3-4 hours or however long for it to get the same as the 175c one. The purpose is to preserve the nutrients in the food. Can baking something at 75c become as good as the 175c one if its kept in long enough, or is it simply too low temp.. I wanna find a sweet spot to bake food and at the same time not destroying nutrients like 175c would.

>Vegetables are "alkaline"
Most of them are actually at least slightly acidic, as are most fruits. your average carrot for example has a pH of about 4-5.
The only reason that veggies are considered "alkaline" in that meme diet is because saying that vegetables are unhealthy will immediately discredit it.

>>159417
In a casserole or a similar dish, most nutrients will survive. Take a casserole containing chicken for example:
With chicken (and pork), you want the dish to be at least 75c all the way through, to avoid risk of infection. This is also a rule in the industry...
The 175c for 30 minutes will usually heat the very outer layer to about 170-175c, but in the middle, your dish will be 75-80c - enough for the meat to be tender, yet safe to eat.
the 175c path will also allow some of the sugars in the outer layers of the food to caramellize and add flavour to the dish

As another example, take the dish in OPs pic related... it's a good example of a dish that needs the high temperature to work. From what I can see, it contains some light meat (chicken or pork), pasta, cheese and corn. The 175c and 30 mins will make sure to cook the meat properly, while giving the cheese that nice brown color and taste and making the corn nice and soft while still having some bite.

Now try the same dish at 75c for 3-4 hours:
  1. There's no guarantee that the meat will be properly cooked all the way to the center. Yes the surface temp will be 75c, but the temperature in the center is still going to be lower, as the dish itself, the sauce and the cheese will work as insulation.
  2. It's likely the top of the dish is going to be dry af and basically inedible. "cooking" at low temperatures like this for a long time dries out the food. Jerky for example is made at 50-75c for 6-8 hours.
  3. pasta and corn in the middle and the bottom of the pan is going to become mush, as the sauce will behave as a solvent due to its water content.

As for other cooking methods...
Boiling won't happen at much more than 100c unless you live on friggin' Venus. Most vitamins and other nutrients can withstand this temperature fine and will also survive being on the stove for an hour or two.
The purpose of (stir)frying is to induce the Maillard reaction and to caramellize the sugars contained in the food - it adds taste to the dish. While the surface of the pan can be in excess of 200c, the temperature in the center of a steak or a piece of stir fried vegetable is going to be much lower... you never fry something for more than a few seconds or minutes.
Many Asian stir-frys for example add most vegetables at the very end - they get a quick heating for that caramellization and to impart a bit of flavour - but remain nice and crunchy to give the dish some texture. Veggies rarely remain in the pan for more than a minute or two.

The aim of a majority of cooking methods does break down *some* nutrients, but makes it easier for the body to absorb the rest as it also helps break down some proteins and other long-chained molecules into components that the body can use. Keep in mind, we've been cooking long before we were called Homo Sapiens - the very art of cooking is thought to be a big reason behind our large brains. If done right, cooking can unlock more nutrients and other building blocks than a given food contains naturally. For the more heat-sensitive components, eat some fruit instead.

Biggest difference is whole vs. ground. If you're getting whole spices, then you can't really go wrong IMO.

For ground spices, yeah the brand makes a big diff. But I don't buy them often enough to have too many opinions. I know those red tins of hungarian paprika are fuckin bomb. For shit like garlic and onion powder, I just check the ingredients , and I've never been steered wrong.


It's not the "best quality", but just since we're talking spice brands, I really like badia. They're cheap, no fuss, and almost as widespread as mccormick.

Is there anything that could be considered like the human equivalent to a rawhide?

Currently unemployed and waiting for thc to leave my system and i keep finding myself wanting to munch on something just cuz I'm bored. But I don't eat because that would be wasteful and I dont wanna get too fat. But the craving is ever present. I feel like if I had something to just absently gnaw on I'd be ok.

If anyone can relate, what do you usually use to sate your belly demon's desires?
