I've always had dirt cheap knives, looking at buying a decent set. I'm pretty much settled on the set I'm getting but I'd like to hear your thoughts. I cook prolifically for myself and friend and really value quality implements.

Set pictured, Wusthof Ikon 8 Piece. Admittedly I probably wouldn't use the carving knife but I would try and sell that and replace it with a filleting or boning knife.

Now that's something to be mad over. The whole diet is built around inducing ketosis, IE fat burning for energy, by starving yourself of carbs, the body's preferred energy source. But the problem is that you just end up eating a shit ton of animal fats anyway, so it's unproductive and stressful for your body. Not to mention if you get to dedicated to avoiding carbs, you'll just end up with ketoacidosis, a life-threatening condition that should only be pursued under the care of a doctor or registered nutrition (and only to combat a very nasty disease like cancer)..

Or epilepsy!! The keto diet is actually really fucking interesting. I applaud all the healthy people becoming guinea pigs to try it out. I'm not gonna, because carbs are the best. But there's interesting biochem going on with keto.

Fucking-A my dude, I'm really glad I could help! That sounds like a pretty dank soup. The next step now is to start making soups in larger batches, and freezing it in individual portions so when you need a quick meal you can just toss a block of frozen soup in a pan, wait a few minutes, and boom soup erryday!

I'm seriously glad you did this though it made my heart smile.

How would one go about changing their desires for what kind of food they would want to eat. All I like is salty and sugary foods. I want to eat healthier but everything I try I don't like or I stay away from weird food. Do I just force it down my throat?

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.

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.

Didn't use the magic french words in a thread where I want to help people get better at cookery? Must consume genitals.

no gods, no masters, let do as thou wilt be the whole of the law

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.
