Anyone else like watching weird people eat food on Youtube? I got into Hot Ones a few years ago and really enjoyed it but haven't watched it in awhile (I think it got super popular since then). Then earlier this year someone on here posted about Steve1989, who's this incredibly polite guy that eats military MRE's from the prior century for our entertainment, and I got hooked. More recently I started watching TheReportOfTheWeek which I watched like once for the memes many years ago, but when I was looking up a food review his video on the item popped up first so I watched that and I ended up watching a lot of his most recent food reviews and he is just a delightful weirdo.

Does /nom/ have any other Youtube recommendations of weird people eating food (either weird food or normal food) or just generally entertaining food-related shows?

I always liked the Epicurious website, and I've enjoyed their YouTube channel.

Price Points is one of their shows, it's a single-blind test where experts have to guess which of two unlabeled products is higher quality/more expensive. It differs from other, similar shows about '$500 DOLLAR BURGER VS $5 BURGER' because the experts actually explain what determines quality and therefore price. Also, the experts they choose manage to avoid coming off as pretentious. The beer guy is my favourite

Other Epicurious shows that I enjoy are 4 Levels, where three cooks of varying skill prepare a dish, and then a food scientist explains why the professional chef did it best, and Basic Skills Challenge, where fifty random people try to identify or prepare foodstuffs, then a professional explains everything at the end

Rice, canned kidney beans. The kidney bean sauce is thick in a way so it will hold
flavors well. Chili sauce, sriracha, generic store brand I think it better. add onion half way through before beans get hot for like three minutes. Add sauce toward the end of cooking with some black pepper.

Frozen vegetables, always just microwave separate and drain excess water for sure, or the water will bland every thing out. Some onion powder and seasoning powder. Some like lawrywsis ok but got burned out on it. Most prepared mixed spices main ingredient is salt and onion powder. above all. McCormic grill mates garlic and herb seems to be the easiest to work into a lot of foods projects. The herb part I think kicks the garlic into the right space.

stir rice until egg gets fluffy. hotness of rice cooks egg. add another egg on top to make it look sexy

I'm bringing the science. I'm bringing the bad grammar.
I'm here to ruin your life.

Aromatic vegetables. You slice them up using a knife that is sharp. You cook them on a low temperature (sweating) until they are clear, they start to melt, then smell delicious. You use a fat, oil or lipid of some variety to keep them from sticking, you listen to how they sound. If they scream, you are hurting them, let them sing to you, telling you they love their warm new home and are making lots of flavor friends.

Salt is two things in balance, Sodium, a metal that burns when in contact with air or water, and chlorine, a corrosive poison that kills your lungs if you breathe it. Salt comes with iodine, it is good to have that in your diet, you need some of it or you will start to bleed uncontrollably similar to scurvy. More on that later.

Salt is essential for life. You need it or you will die. You eat too much of it and you will pop your blood-tubes. Don't eat garbage food and you will never have to worry about salt intake.

You put salt on the aromatic vegetables, then they let their water out into the pan, the water boils and turns into steam, which leaves the pan. The flavor is now more concentrated and more delicious than before.

Pepper, black pepper. It comes from little seeds that when ground up are full of aromatic chemicals and a few psychoactive ones. You can get high from black pepper, but right now we're cooking with it. You have onion? Okay good, smells nice, tasty, but what if you put black pepper and onion together? The aromatic chemicals in these two things combine when heated, and you get new aromatic chemicals, and even better flavor.

Ok, so that is why you season your trinity, mirepoix, soffritto, et al.

You want more science, you want more cooking? Lets talk.

First there this thing called chiffonade, but if you want your cilantro in big chunks that cool too.

So you take the cilantro, and you roll it into a very tight little bundle on some kitchen paper (you don't have to, but if you're not used to finely cutting herbs it helps), then you carefully shave small pieces off it using a sharp knife.

The onion you want in little bitty tiny pieces, or strings, or diced, depends how much you like onion. But white onion with cilantro and lime juice, yeah, i'll just eat a bowl of that with a spoon.


I'll suck your butthole and your dick if you post a picture of a dish that you have made well and plated adequately.

We all know that fast foods aren't healthy, but neither are the numerous drugs some of us enjoy. Life is a bitch, and then you die, so what fast foods are your favorite? As someone who has experimented with veganism, I like to phrase it as, "If you were to try and go vegan, which fast foods would you struggle to give up the most?" Trying to go vegan for a year or so gave me plenty of time to think about it, and it offered me a lot of insight into what meaty foods are actually my favorites (and they weren't all what I had originally thought they were!). A few of my finest offerings:

>Steak and Cheese Sub: 12", lettuce, hots, onions, mushroom, peppers, black olives, mayonnaise
>Shitty Hangover Breakfast*: Eggs or omelet, sausage or bacon or corn beef hash, homefries or hashbrowns, buttered toast (peanut butter optional), baked beans, maybe some pancakes, psyche waffles bitch
>Italian Sub: This one varies from person to person, but I like salami, mortadella, bacon, cabot alpine cheddar, lettuce, tomato, red onions, raw peppers, black olives, jalapeños, sprouts, avocado, and mayonnaise.
>Sushi: Tuna, Salmon, Eel, Oshinko, Kanpyo, Gobo, all the other veggies they use, deep-fried variants- everything except sea urchin

Tonight I'm having the Steak and Cheese Sub/Grinder/Hoagie/Po' Boy/Fuck You
*(Sausage) Biscuits and Gravy may be included also.

If you look at prices for fast food, compared to a bar cheesburger fries and a coke, you likely would spend about the same amount of money. Disappointment is two people getting McDonalds getting BigMac fries and a drink can be around 11 bucks and it basically sucks. I find almost all fast food to be nothing more than poor quality food and a waste of money.

I hate these things.

It was my first job; early 2006. I was attending a Le Cordon Bleu school, and I needed a job. I found one at a Jack In The Box. It was okay at first. I'd come in early in the morning and do all the prep work (stacking cheese, cutting tomatoes, making salads, thawing shit, washing dishes). I'd usually be out of the door by 11AM.

Then, I was put on lunch and/or dinner shift. Lunch shift was the worst.

If you've never been to Jack In The Box, they serve some unusual sides for a fast food place. The egg rolls were never an issue, but the tacos were. Oh yes, those famous Jack In The Box tacos. 2 for 99 cents. How the construction workers loved to pile up in the drive-in, ordering 100-150 tacos at a time for their entire crew. The bastards.

You see, Jack's taco came frozen. The beef was pre-cooked inside the shell, so you'd use a special tool that held six tacos at once. We only had four of the tools, so the most we could make at once was 24. You'd press the "TACO" button hanging off the vent, one time for each "row" you fried.

Then comes the fun part. Ever grab something straight out of the fryer while wearing latex gloves? Well, imagine the fun of sliding open 100+ steaming hot taco shells, taking care not to break them, to stuff lettuce, cheese, and hot sauce inside them. I loved peeling the melted gloves off my hands every five minutes.

Basically what I'm trying to say is: Don't order tacos from Jack In The Box. Don't be an asshole.

Yup, that's right; this is where we rag on food items that take us aback.

I was in the store the other day and spotted this gem. Seriously? That's like putting mayo on a stick! YOU CAN'T HAVE MAYONNAISE ON A STICK. GM must just be fucking off at this point. I guess they've made so much other bullshit they're out of both ideas and shame.

Hey what's a good website for recipes? I really hate the new format of recipe websites filled with adds and horrible interfaces. I just want straight forward recipes and we have special soups weekly where I work so I often need to think of a new vegan soup or a non-vegan soup on the fly and sometimes I google things and get trapped on shitty websites with basic ass bullshit soups.

Season chicken, stick in the oven. About as easy as food gets. Same with potatoes. Also do yourself a favor and get on of the steamer pots or whatever the fuck they are called. You can throw some rice in there along with some broccoli or whatever vegetables you want, set the timer and you’ve got all that goodness with the absolute minimum work involved

I'm the type of person who just doesn't notice when they're hungry and I don't really like to cook all that much. Normally I eat the same stuff every single day but if there is ever a hiccup in this routine then I start to lose control of my diet. I've reached a healthy weight after several years of work, and now I've reached the point where I really need to keep my diet in check or I'm not going to gain any muscle, or I might start losing weight again.

Any easy recipes with little clean up would be nice, thank you. Normally I eat bananas, oranges, almonds, bread? I guess? I'm like 220 pounds and 6'4''. I dunnoh man I think I'm losing control of my life too maybe throw in some life advice with your recipes, thanks again

I think my diet is healthy enough so I'll break it down. I generally meal prep dinner for 5 or 6 days and just eat whatever the other 1 or 2 nights. Portion wise my body type is wildly different to yours by the sound of it so you need to work that out. I found cronometer.com when I first started prepping meals to be invaluable for getting sizes right. Theres infinite information on the google for finding out about how many calories you need, personally I always eat pretty much the same thing so it's easy to eyeball portions based on whether I need to gain or lose weight. What you really want to dial in is your macro nutrient ratio so find out what yours should be and have a closer look look at what you're eating. I personally avoid most refined sugar products so that's not something I really have to think about too much.

Muslea with fruit and nuts mixed with yogurt of choice, be careful with the sweetened yogurt if you're watching your waist as some brands put an almost unbelievable amount on sugar into them. I personally eat fairly heavily sweetend yogurt with some kind of fruit in it but it's pretty much the only source of refined sugar in my diet.

If I'm trying to bulk a bit my go to for lunch is a mixture of canned drained and rinsed 4 bean mix, a tinned tuna of choice and a sliced up cucumber with a bit of salt, pepper, maybe some chilli sauce. My personal favourite is avocado instead of cucumber but I struggle picking ripe avocado so I generally go cucumber.

My prepped dinner is a mixture of brown rice, chicken thighs though breast would be healthier, slightly under steamed broccoli and usually another vegetable of choice. I cook the chicken covered with foil in the oven at 200 C for 2 hours. I put the chicken in a medium tray, chop up an onion, some shallots, chilli, ginger, I just change up the flavour profile and spices depending on how I'm feeling that week, mix it up with a little olive oil and cover with foil. I find cooking it like this preserves the moisture in the chicken somehow so the chicken is tender and juicy when you reheat it in the microwave. I cook this for about 6 serves at a time and I guarentee it will cost about as much as getting takeaway food once.

Bit of a willpower thing to eat healthy but in my opinion, if you're exercising for gains meal prepping to regulate your macros and portion sizes is a really powerful tool.
