I want to make some bread, but yeast is expensive over hear, so I'd like some advice with starter dough. I heard that if you keep it in the fridge you only need to feed it once to make sure the bacteria is healthy, but I'd appreciate some first hand experience advice and pitfalls.

>it shatters

>mfw

Could’ve been worse. Could have been full, instead of only <2 cups left, so the mess wasn’t as bad as it could’ve been. And I only got a small cut on my foot from a flying shard. And I got the pot for like $6 from Goodwill. And I still have my second one; making two gallons at a time is too much for one guy anyway, especially regarding fridge space.

THE 8CH CHALLENGE

Can you cook a meal using nothing more than salt, pepper, and eight ingredients which start with CH?

RULES

Your ingredients must, in English, start with the letters CH. Adjectives, such as colour, are not included in the name. This means you can use cherry tomatoes, but not, for example, "chopped" tomatoes.

If your ingredient has more than one word in the name, the FIRST word must start with CH, so cheddar is allowed, but "parmesan cheese" is not.

If your ingredient name starts with a location, that location must mean the ingredient is distinct from others. This means Chilean bass is allowed, as it is different to bass found elsewhere in the world, whereas Chinese rice is not allowed, as it is not distinct from rice grown in other countries.

Your ingredient must be obvious from the name you give. This avoids workarounds like saying "cheese" to be able to use ricotta, for example.

Let's see what you can come up with.

Instant Ramen General

A lot of ramen threads end up being about the things you can do to an ordinary ramen package to make it better, although all the typical suggestions do usually help they can also raise the cost to the point where if you're going to buy extras–should just cook your own soup from scratch because it will be superior than any fancy-ed up ramen packs.

What as-is ramen have you purchased and found to be of the highest relative quality? Try to keep it under $5.00 a bowl because at that price you could easily buy a hot lunch that is much better than ramen.

Whatever just share your noodle experiences.

Easy to make Breakfast.

Anyone have any tips on making a classic american breakfast? I usually make two american grilled cheese sandwitches or four eggs with cheese, a bagel with cream cheese and some sliced tomatos.

With the grilled cheese I put some butter as anti-stick and flavor, let it fry on the frying pan for about a minute, pick it up and put in another slice of butter, flip it, let it cook, add some salt and put it on a plate.

For the eggs: I crack open about four, mix them, rip up some cheese and put it in the mixed yolk, scramble the eggs to the point before its still fluffy, put some salt and then slice up some tomatos and add in a bagel with cream cheese.

Anything I can add to this? Maybe some fruits or whatever? Let me know how you do breakfast.

how do i into burger

retard here with little to no cooking skill, best i can do is eggs/rice

felt like getting meat today so i got pork to make burgers

i've got a stainless steel pot, put some oil in it and let it heat up

only put some mild spices in the meat and put them in the pot

took a while for them to cook since i might have accidentally made them too thick, but eventually the inner side looked etable

also put eggs on top of the burger, some green onion too, butter for the buns

it tastes alright and i don't think i poisoned myself in any way, but it still doesn't feel quite right, maybe because i used pork

My recipe now consists of putting shredded colby jack chees in the middle of a burger that is about 4 ounces, cooking over a medium heat so as not to char it, or leave the inside uncooked. Smack some butter on them big ass bleached white buns (Although I found some garlic buns and cut those in half instead) Grill them until they are browned. Bacon cut to where they are about 3-4 inches cooked (Still soft, not too crispy) One thin slice of tomato on the bottom, then the bacon, slice of pepper jack, patty, slice of pepper jack, barbecue and ketchup, shredded lettuce, burger pickles, and top it off with the bun. What are y'all doing? I feel like there is something I could to to make that shit better, but I dunno.

Ingredients you always use when cooking

Besides soy, I know you guys can't live without it.

Pic related, I'm not a Med, but I fucking love garlic, I put that shit in everything. When I need to snack on something, I eat it raw with a piece of cheese or something. I don't really notice or care about the smell, but I'm a NEET so it practically doesn't matter.

I also really like olive oil and use it instead of other kinds of oil or butter whenever possible.

Broccoli is the worst vegetable

Bush Sr. was a horrible, gun grabber of a president (When's the import ban EO being reversed Trump?), but I must agree with him here: Broccoli is the worst vegetable.

Garlic, peppers, ginger and onions of all types are as much seasonings as they are vegetables and it's impossible to cook anything of without them. Potatoes need no explanation. Spinach and Kale are excellent at absorbing flavor have pleasant texture in any soup. Carrots and celery are great at absorbing flavor, and they can very much be eaten raw on their own. Cabbage needs the right preparation, but also works within certain dishes. Even cauliflower, a close relative of broccoli, is worthwhile mashed.

Broccoli however has no such qualities. It doesn't cook, merely become less raw, and and maintains its horrid texture no matter what you do. You can't stir it into anything before the end, much less cut it or run it through a masher or food processor. The shape means dressing or sauce doesn't really do much to mask the flavor.

Try to change my mind /ck/. Hard Mode: Actually make broccoli edible instead of finding an obscure vegetable even worse than it

More Seattle restaurants close doors as $15 minimum wage approaches


Seattle’s $15 minimum wage law goes into effect on April 1, 2015. As that date approaches, restaurant across the city are making the financial decision to close shop. The Washington Policy Center writes that “closings have occurred across the city, from Grub in the upscale Queen Anne Hill neighborhood, to Little Uncle in gritty Pioneer Square, to the Boat Street Cafe on Western Avenue near the waterfront.”

Of course, restaurants close for a variety of reasons. But, according to Seattle Magazine, the “impending minimum wage hike to $15 per hour” is playing a “major factor.” That’s not surprising, considering “about 36% of restaurant earnings go to paying labor costs.” Seattle Magazine,

“Washington Restaurant Association’s Anthony Anton puts it this way: “It’s not a political problem; it’s a math problem.”

This is the shit keeping me from making 'proper' curry. How do you guys do it? Is there a key to it like "look for the important ingredients and ignore things like herbs and spices"?

I can do 'home cooking' style throw-shit-in-a-pot and make all sorts of soups and mixtures to pour over rice, but I've never been able to follow a recipe that has had more than six ingredients.

While I'm at it, shit like "add half a teaspoon of tahini" like fucker where the hell am I supposed to get half a teaspoon of tahini from? They only sell them in 2 liter containers around here. And all this fancy ass bullcrap like "lightly beat two eggs and a pinch of cream of tartar in a froppe dish" fucker I've got a pot and a pan and a slow cooker.

Best Pizza I’ve ever ate recipe

Makes one 16” Pizza

Prep Time about 2 Hours

Cook Time approximately 18-25 mins depending on oven and toppings etc

I didn’t include toppings but it takes about 12 ounces of cheese. I prefer a mixture of half provolone and half mozzarella.

Dough:

1 1/2 Teaspoons of Yeast

7/8 Cup All Purpose Flour

1 1/8 Cup Bread Flour

1/4 Teaspoon Baking Powder

1/2 Teaspoon Salt

1/2 Teaspoon Sugar

1/2 Teaspoon Honey

150ml of Water

1 Tablespoon Olive Oil

1 Tablespoon Balsamic Vinegar

1 Tablespoon Red Wine Vinegar

Pizza Sauce Recipe:

1 Roma Tomato

1 3/4 Cup of Water

1 6oz Can of Tomato Paste

2 Teaspoons of Minced Garlic

1/2 Teaspoon Sweet Basil

1/4 Teaspoon Oregano

1 Teaspoon Dried Onion

1/4 Teaspoon Thyme

1/8 Teaspoon Parsley

1/8 Teaspoon Salt

1/8 Teaspoon Pepper

1 Tablespoon Olive Oil

1/2 Teaspoon Brown Sugar

1/2 Teaspoon Honey

1 Tablespoon Parmesan

1/2 Teaspoon Ketchup

Directions for dough:

Get a Pyrex measuring cup and pour in the water. Microwave the water for about 30 seconds. Next take the measuring cup out of microwave and stir in the sugar and the honey. Now add the yeast and stir well. Set this aside for about 10-15 minutes.

In a mixing bowl mix the dry ingredients: All Purpose Flour, Bread Flour, Baking Powder and Salt. Take about 3/4 of the dry mix out of mixing bowl and set it aside. You should have about a quarter of the mix now left in the mixing bowl.

In the mixing bowl where there is only a quarter of the dry mix add the yeast water, olive oil, balsamic and red wine vinegar. Whisk this together very well for about 20 seconds. Immediately dump the rest of the flour mix into the bowl. I like to use a wooden spoon to mix the rest together.

Knead the dough for a good 10-15 minutes. If you have a machine that can knead dough then use that if not look up how to hand knead pizza dough online. You may have to sprinkle a little extra Bread Flour from time to time if it gets too sticky while kneading.

Once kneading is finished form the dough into a ball then grease your hands with about a half tablespoon of olive oil and coat the dough ball. Next place the ball of dough into a large bowl and cover with cheese cloth or plastic wrap.

Let the dough rise for about an hour in the kitchen then punch it down and knead it again for 10-15 mins and recoat with olive oil.

Place the dough in the fridge. In about 45 minutes the dough is ready to be formed to make the pizza.

Directions for sauce:

This recipe makes enough sauce for about 2 Pizzas.

Take the roma tomato and put it into a food processor or blender and make it into a sauce like consistency. Add the tomato you just blended and rest of sauce ingredients into a small cooking pot on the stove. Put on low heat and leave the lid on until it simmers then take off the lid to let some of the water evaporate. Cook on low heat for at least an hour or more (depending on desired consistency). When it’s time to put the sauce on the dough I recommend starting with 3/4 of a cup of sauce I definitely would not use any more more than a cup of sauce.

Directions for cooking:

Preheat oven to 425 make sure you have a center oven rack placed already.

Grease a 16” flat pizza pan lightly with olive oil.

Use about a handful of bread flour and coat the counter or wherever you are going to form the dough.

If you don’t know how to work dough by hand I suggest looking it up online. This dough is amazing to work with and rolling pins are for the birds.

Once you got dough made into pizza crust place on pizza pan. If you stretched too much of the dough and too much over hang then just hold pan about 6 inches in air and drop flat on counter. It will shrink a little that way.

Sauce the crust evenly and do not put too much sauce on there as it won’t cook as well. Start with 3/4 cup of sauce and spread evenly. If that looks too light add a tad more.

Use about 2/3 of the cheese and evenly coat the crust. Add toppings and add rest of cheese on top (this will help hold toppings together).

Cooking time varies as not all ovens are the same. It usually takes about 18 minutes on center rack then move the pizza to bottom rack for 3-4 mins to make the bottom lightly golden.

When done let it rest for at least 8 minutes before cutting and serving.

Enjoy!

Crickets

A few weeks ago I had an energy bar made with milled crickets (pic related.) It was pretty good.

Apparently they produce more protein and nutrients using less feed, water, and space than conventional livestock. I'm no fan of PETA, but the thought of being able to feed our growing population without using today's farming methods gives me a lot more hope for humanity.

What do you guys think? Have you tried them? Would you do it regularly if they were cheap enough?

Step 1: Melt and cool the butter in the pan you plan on using for the crepes. Let it cool slightly before adding it to the rest of the mix to avoid scrambling the eggs. Do not clean the pan yet. You’ll use that thin layer of butter when cooking the crepes.

Step2: Mix all the listed ingredients in a bowl. You can let it sit in the fridge for an hour, but no more than 1 day. Take it out and stir it when you are ready to cook.

Step 3: Pour some of the mix into the pan at medium heat. Only pour enough to cover the bottom of the pan about 1/8 of an inch.

Step 4: Cook the crepes until they are lightly browned on the bottom, then flip it and cook the other side being careful not to tear the crepe. Put your spatula under the edges every so often to make sure it doesn’t stick. If you used enough butter you might be able to slide the crepe back and forth in the pan by swishing the pan side to side once you have unstuck the bottom with a spatula. Once both sides are ¾ lightly brown set it aside.

Fillings and toppings:

>• 1 tablespoon Sugar

>• 1/2 teaspoon Cinnamon

>• Some Blackberry Jam

>• Cream Cheese?

>• Some sort of >50 proof alcohol that has a fruity taste.

Step 5: Spread the Jam on the finished crepes, and if you like a less sweet more savory crepe you can also add cream cheese. I don't like this but my wife does.

Step 6: Roll the crepe into a burrito shape and sprinkle a mixture of that cinnamon and sugar on it if you like a childish taste like me. Garnish with blackberries and a dollop of whipped cream if you are showing off.

You can eat like this, However if you REALLY want to impress a date. Go on to step 7.

Step 7: Pour a some Cognac or Cooking Sherry or Coconut Rum, anything over 50 proof on it. Enough to make a very thin puddle at the bottom. Light it on fire long enough to caramelize the cinnamon and sugar, but be sure to blow it out like a birthday candle before it burns the edges. Serve in dimly lit room at night for maximum effect.

Bread thread

what breads have you been making /ck/?

me? I've been doing sourdough bread, going off pic related and watching the listed YT videos as sort of a guide while using a simple recipe for measuring.

1st loaf - misread the recipe, used far too much water, the dough seemed to barely rise at all despite a 16-hour ferment and a 3-hour proof, it more or less deformed to an almost-liquid state, so in my apathy, I put it in a normal bread pan instead of my cast-iron pan. baked 450 F for 30 min total, it turned out better than expected. loaf was fine, except it was slightly undercooked in the middle. pop a slice in the toaster and it's perfect.

2nd loaf - used less water this time around, formed fine, proofed pretty good. I cut the surface too deep and it started losing it's shape. used the cast iron pan & lid to serve as a dutch oven. the crust baked magnificently, but it was a flat fucking bread, something more appropriate for breadsticks than actual sliced bread. I never got time to enjoy this loaf, In my stupidity I left it unsealed for four days. I ate my meals at work, but guilt kept me from using it as dessert. The bread is now the consistency of a brick.

how long does a plain-jane sourdough bread last? for that matter, what should I do to keep my bread from flattening out before or after fermentation?

RIP Paul Bocuse

PRESS F TO PAY RESPECTS

Paul Bocuse, the most celebrated French chef of the postwar era and a leading figure in the pathbreaking culinary movement known as nouvelle cuisine, died on Saturday, his family said in a statement. He was 91.

Mr. Bocuse emerged as the first among a brilliant band of chefs who developed a modernized version of classic French cooking in the late 1960s and early ’70s, cheered on by Henri Gault and Christian Millau, the publishers of the influential Gault-Millau Guide. Following the lead of Fernand Point, the spiritual father of nouvelle cuisine and a mentor to many of its pioneers, Mr. Bocuse shaped a style of cooking at the Auberge du Pont de Collonges, his three-star restaurant near Lyon, that stressed fresh ingredients, lighter sauces, unusual flavor combinations and relentless innovation that, in his case, rested on a solid mastery of classic technique.

His signature dishes not only pleased the palate; they also seduced the eye and piqued the imagination. He stuffed sea bass with lobster mousse and encased it in pastry scales and fins. He poached a truffled Bresse chicken inside a pig’s bladder.

His most famous dish was truffle soup V.G.E., a heady mixture of truffles and foie gras in chicken broth, baked in a single-serving bowl covered in puff pastry. First served at a dinner at the Élysée Palace in 1975, the soup was named for the French president Valéry Giscard d’Estaing, who had just awarded Mr. Bocuse the French Legion of Honor.

Inside the actual kitchen itself, there would be a nice antique wood-fired cast iron stove/oven, with a backup gas range. All of the cookware would be cast iron or earthen/stoneware.

Vegan Thread

>certain omnivorous people get butthurt when I tell them their diet fucking sucks, they behave like fatasses that only care about taste rather than health or morality or care for our ecosystem, are too lazy to research vegan nutrition, too lazy to research vegan eating on a budget, are helping kill animals and waste resources using all these farm animals, and are helping contribute to global warming (I tell them all this in a nice, supportive way rather than an insulting or guilt tripping tone because insults and guilt tripping are even worse than not being vegan)

>"u vegans are so pushy, mean, and stoopid!!1 i hate vegans because they criticize me and i'm a special snowflake!!1 i luv cramming my face with MUH bacon and MUH eggs and MUH cheese and MUH steak and MUH salmon and MUH hotdogs and MUH cheetohs and MUH mountain dee and MUH dairy milk!!1 vegan diets are too expensive because I need muh 1500 dollar gaming PC, muh 200 dollars of steam games a month, muh 500 dollar dildos, and all my other overpriced normie possessions!!1 vegans are so stoopid because humans were designed to eat meat and it is impossible for me to get Vitamin B12 or Protein from vegan foods, even though I drink a ton of whiskey and shit anyways so I'll just die 20 years earlier than others anyways!!1 i can't cook or learn vegan recipes or go to vegan buffets or get vegan frozen food because I need muh full 24 hours to play Overwatch and CS:GO and jerk off to hentai!!1 ur all stoopid hippies anyways, and animals don't have feelings u dumbass, survival of the fittest, get outta here you beta cuck!!1"

Of course this is an exaggerations, but omnivores always tend to say this shit whenever I try to persuade them into going vegan. Remember: omnivores help produce even more Co2. I only attack WHINEY omnivores… don't whine - you're fine.

Provide vegan substitutes for baking, cheese, and all that stuff as well. Remember: only normalfags and plebs eat food primarily for its taste and/or texture.

Exotic Food

Well have you tried those fancy food anons?

What's the first exotic food you've ever tried?

How did you cook it?

Does its taste warrant its price?

For me its the Sea Turtle's eggs. Since i live in Indonesia where there are alot of sea-life, and you can already guess Sea Turtles nest their eggs at the beach, its just the matter of catching one when its laying eggs. Unfortunately, the egg poachers have put a huge dent into the Sea Turtle's population and the government is putting a pressure on them. Buying these isn't illegal mind you, but to find a seller you have to find around and the price is very steep compared to normal eggs. For these egges, you will have to cough up 0.6 - 1 dollars each, and the price depends on the sellers.

The eggs themselves are around around the size of a ping pong ball, its shell is a softshell and its tougher than it looks. For what you can do with it, well not much to say, since every people that i've met that has eaten these said that they always boiled them, i guess expensive products means less experimentation. So, i do what they always do, boiled it in a pot. I added a few chops of green onions, a pinch of salt to taste, and a few cut screwpine leaves. The yolk has a runny texture, and the thing that sets it apart from chicken egg or duck egg is that the yolk can't be hardboiled, the most you can get out of boiling it is that it'll be a softboiled egg every time. But the taste is waaaaaaaaaaaaaaay better than good ol' chicken egg if i could say, the taste is hard to explain in english but i could say its a blend of having a cheese fondue-like consistency and the taste of a really good softboiled chicken yolk.

All in all, while i felt kinda bad for eating these, they taste pretty good but not enough to justify its price. There are alot of local rumors of it being a 'super-food', and people near the coast usually eat one when they can since its rumored to give you better sexual vigor. I don't know how true this is, but since theres barely any research on this, and i don't think i will. Also these things are 'halal'

Well? whats about those culinary escapades then?

I spent 5 hours today pickling and canning vegetables. In april this year I gained an interest in gardening and combined with a fond memory for pickled vegetables my friend's dad made as a kid, I decided I wanted to grow cayenne peppers and pickle them so I would be able to eat them. I chose cayenne peppers because I always use cayenne powder mixed into my eggs when I cook scrambled eggs and I liked the taste. So in May I bought two medium sized pots for planting in (14 inches diameter at the top I think), and some potting soil and some seeds for mixed color cayenne pepper plants.

I had 5 seeds in each pot from the start to make sure at least 1 would grow, and I weeded out all but the best looking one after a month. They have grown into two very good pepper plants for my first time growing anything and I just harvested today and cut off 31 total peppers between the two plants which you can see in the image attached. I also spent part of my paycheck on the cans, lids, pot with canning rack, and spices for pickling.

I used the water bath process where I heated the jars in water for 5 minutes, boiled (I think and hope) the 1:1 brine, put stuff in the jar with brine, put the lid on, and then put it back into submerged water to heat for 10 more minutes before taking out for each jar. Since this was my first time pickling, I tried different vegetables and ingredients for flavor to have a better idea for the future. I used six of the 12 jars I bought and had one major vegetable in each. Garlic was two cloves each.

Carrots

>garlic

>sea salt

>black peppercorn

>small bits of onion

>pickling spice

Radishes

>garlic

>sea salt

>black peppercorn

>1 habanero pepper

>lemon juice

Red bell peppers

>garlic

>sea salt

>black peppercorn

>1 habanero pepper

>pickling spice

Celery

>garlic

>sea salt

>black peppercorn

>ginger root

>pickling spice

Onions

>garlic

>ginger root

>cane sugar

>1 cinnamon stick

>pickling spice

Cayenne Peppers

>garlic

>sea salt

>black peppercorn

>cane sugar

>1 cinnamon stick

Right now all of the jars are sitting on my counter and I hope they will pop the lids so I will leave them out for a few days and then put them in the refrigerator for a few months before I open them to eat.

Swedish TV chef brutally beaten by "Muslim men" because he "looked like Mr. Trump"

Anders Vendel, a famous chef, restaurant owner and TV star from Malmö, Sweden, was savagely beaten by three "Muslim" men because they thought he looked like "Mr. Trump", Sydsvenskan reports.

In a Facebook post that was later removed, Mr. Vendel – who is a well-known anti-Racist figure and a star of the TV show "The Struggle of the Chefs"– described the brutal assault that took place early Saturday morning in a late-night fast food restaurant in Malmö.

"I am in the emergency room as of a couple of hours ago awaiting X-rays. I was beaten up by three Muslim men between the ages of 25-35. They thought I bore a resemblance to Mr. Trump."

"Two of the men grabbed my arms from behind and the third one started punching me all over the face. I tried to defend myself with my legs. After receiving about 20 fists to my face, I fell down to the floor. All three then started kicking me as much as they could in my face and head. I now have a broken nose, bumps, a clogged eye, mouth, lips and jaw. Even a broken right thumb," he continued.

Cheese

So I got a small chunk of non-processed Monterey Jack as a snack item and accidentally forgot to refrigerate it after bringing it out. So it was essentially sitting in a plastic bag for a day in a warm room.

I realized my mistake in lament and opened up the bag to get a whiff of essentially old feet until I curiously tried a small piece to see if it was truly as bad as it smelled. To my astonishment, the flavor is actually 2x as strong and the consistency is like that of a firm brie and it even has an earthy rind (albeit small one).

Homemade Mexican Food General

sorry i didn't take more pictures before this point, but i've been cooking up a lot of mexican food at home and thought y'all would like to share recipes. i have a pot of carnitas on the stove right now, should be done in a few hours.

1.5 lb pork shoulder, 1" cubes

1 onion, large dice

6 cloves of garlic, left whole

1 habanero, mince

1 jalapeno, small dice

1 serrano, small dice

1/2 c orange juice

juice of 1 lime

~2 c stock, i used a pork stock i made with smoked bones.

2 tsp dark chili powder

1 tsp cumin

1 tsp coriander

1/2 tsp dried thyme

salt and black pepper to taste.

in a thick pot on high heat, sear the pork cubes in batches and reserve. turn heat to medium and add your vegetables with some salt to sweat. return the pork to the pot and let the juices brown on the bottom of the pot. deglaze with juice and stock, add spices and return to a lazy simmer. i'm going to be cooking it unlidded to better control the temperature and moisture, but i could also slap a lid on and leave it askew. we'll see how it goes.

At the same time, how do you cook some of the rarer meats you pick up? Pork chops and ground beef can only satisfy a man so many ways. And what the fuck is up with chicken? Why is it so hard to make some tasty chicken without adding all sorts of shit to it?

The best cooking advice I have ever read:

Here's what you're gonna do OP. Listen carefully because this is very important advice. Lots of people think cooking is all about complicated recipes, big cookbooks and arduous effort. Really it's more of an innate thing.

Learning to cook is much more simple, so pay close attention to what I'm going to say. Are you listening?

Fry an egg and experiment with various seasoning. This will give you an idea of what flavours go well together which is the most important quality in cooking. Fry an egg, cut it in quarter, season each quarter differently. Try one with cayenne and, I dunno, chives? Just experiment with lots of seasoning combinations.

Then fry another egg and repeat the process. Keep frying eggs and experimenting until you get a good idea of what works. You can eat 3-4 eggs in a day, heck you're from /fit/ so probably 6+. If you eat 6 eggs in a day, that's 24 egg quarters, 24 seasoning combinations in a day. You're talkng about 1000 seasoning combinations in just over a month.

At this stage you'll be a spicemaster and what/how you cook wont matter because you'll be better at seasoning than 99% of professional chefs, and this WILL make you a good cook.

Natef Halva

Dear /ck/s,

Some months ago, I ate halva from a delicacy store. I had an instant food-erection and am now in search for its recipe.

Now, I dont want turkish honey or anything that has egg white or wheat in it. The halva recipe i am searching for has 3 ingredients:

tahini

Natef

honey (or sugar)

Those 3 things make up a flakey, cotton-candy-like substance that melts in your mouth (yes, im sorry, but it does) and (pic related). Note: Im not talking about turkish honey or similar soft "white nougat". Pic related, it has similar texture, it breaks apart, but you can cut it.

How and when and how much do I mix, /ck/ and how long and how do i store it to cristallize?

note: I thought about taking soapberrys instead of soaproot because its cheaper and there's a better saponin content, but oh well.

Chocolate ganache for profiteroles with Chantilly cream inside.

I want to make profiteroles, i found how to make them and the chantilly cream the issue is the chocolate ganache.

I ve seen a few videos online about it but they are different and i dont know which one is better.

At one you just use heavy cream, bring almost to a boil, not boil, then throw on chocolate chips and move around until they are melted and it is ready

On another video gordon ramsay is using double boiler to melt chocolate, butter and honey together and at the end add some milk

What is the difference between those 2 techniques? And do i need to add sugar is the chocolate is 70% and it is dark? or does the milk/cream make it not bitter?

I want the ganache to have a heavy chocolate flavor with a little sweetness and to be a little thicker than a completely runny sauce since i want to put the profiteroles in the ball with that ganache.

I'm going to be buying a house in a year or two, and the very first thing I'm going to do is expand the kitchen into the dining room and living room.

I will re-purpose half the living room into pantry, get a commercial fridge, a deep-freeze, a 20k+ btu six burner stove with a griddle, big hood, massive sink, drains in the floor, 4 quart pass through food processor, couple ovens, and stainless everything. No pretty custom cabinetry, just a couple of these: http://www.webstaurantstore.com/regency-30-x-96-16-gauge-304-stainless-steel-commercial-work-table-with-undershelf/600TS3096S.html

I have the know-how to do everything except the gas hookups, and figure I can build the kitchen of my dreams for under $20k. Anyone ever done this? What's it like? I've never cooked professionally, because mixing hobby with work is soul crushing. Those of you who use a pro kitchen, how much better is your equipment than consumer stuff?

~Masterful Flavor Pasta Ultima~

Masterful Flavor Pasta Ultima

Take half a red bell pepper, one red fresno pepper, three tomatoes, 1/4th a large red or white onion, two cloves of garlic, an egg, and fresh basil leaves, oregano too if you desire, and put it all into a blender. Dust on some salt and other spices if you crave more flavor. Add some water, so it blends, and then blend that shit.

Yeah, blend that shit.

Get a large pasta pot. A big one.

Coat the bottom with olive oil. Good olive oil. Don't be cheap.

Pour your blended veggie/fruit mix into that large pasta pot. If you need more sauce, either dump in a bottle of premade pasta sauce from a store, or just make more of your own sauce.

Then heat it up until it starts to boil. Keep it moving. Once it's boiling, add your meat.

You like meat? Yeah, I like meat. Luckily, meat is optional.

If you do like meat, go buy a slab of ground Italian sausage.

Put the entire slab in the pot and stab it with a spatula until it's in small pieces. Delicious. Then go for it. Add your goddamn noodles.

What? Yeah, add your fucking dry pasta noodles to the sauce. The fucking sauce. Add your noodles to the sauce bro. The sauce should be fairly thin, because of the water and the unreduced tomatoes and other ingredients.

Tortellini is good in here with other noodles; I prefer rainbow rotini.

Here's where it gets fun. Make sure you've got some high-quality mozzarella cheese. The really good shit. Dump that bitch in there. Get her all wet in the sauce, until she starts to melt. Let those thirsty noodles suck up the sauce, the sluts, and you wait at the pot, mixing it as the cheese melts.

You'll know when it's done. The noodles will be wiggling and will tremble on your fork, jiggling like used whores. It'll be hot.

Spoon some onto your plate, and then grate some parmesan cheese onto it. Top with a sprinkle of dried basil leaves, for aesthetics.

Chip off a small triangle of dark chocolate, as dark as you can get, and put it on the side of your plate, next to the pasta.

You've created bliss. Do not eat it. Only admire it.

No, I'm joking, you can eat it. Goddamn. Enjoy it though.

Hello /ck/

/agdg/ here, im making a cooking system for my game and got a weird question:

>Are there any soups or stews (or similar stuff like chili and curry) that actually goes well with minty flavours?

Because in my cooking system every flavour increases the score up to a certain point (like salty up to 60%, then it decreses the score), so stuff like salty jam/tea would score better than a normal one and adding mint to every single recipe would improve it, to combat this exploit im choosing a taste in every dish type to act as a negative, right now goes as following:

deepfried -> minty

stew -> ?

curry -> ?

soup -> ?

chili -> ?

stock -> minty

tea -> salty

jam -> salty

Everything else allows for any taste

Celeb Chef Says He Won't Let Trump Dine At His Restaurants During RNC

A darling of Cleveland's culinary scene said Thursday that he wouldn't allow Donald Trump to set foot in his restaurants when the Republican National Convention rolls into town next month.

"Dude, there's not a chance I'd let him into one of my restaurants," Michael Symon said in an interview with Cleveland radio station WKRK, as flagged by cleveland.com.

Symon, who owns multiple restaurants in Cleveland, rose to fame after winning "The Next Iron Chef," earning him a permanent spot on the show. He's also a host of ABC's "The Chew" and appears frequently on Food Network programs.

Two of Symon's restaurants are located near Quicken Loans Arena, where Trump is expected to be crowned the Republican Party's nominee. If either of those restaurants host private parties as the convention unfolds, he said the real estate mogul won't be among those invited.

Asked if he thought his ban on the real estate mogul would alienate Trump fans who might be customers, Symon said that it had nothing to do with politics. The celebrity chef said that he had been "fortunate or unfortunate enough to meet him through the years."

"It's just that he creeps me out," Symon said.

"I come from a mixed political family, which is always fun around this time of the world," a chuckling Symon told hosts Matt Dery and Anthony Lima. "I've been fortunate or unfortunate enough to meet him through the years. I'm not going to lie, he creeps me out a little bit."

US approves genetically modified salmon for food

US regulators on Thursday approved a type of genetically modified salmon, saying it is safe to eat and making it the first transgenic animal destined for American dinner tables.

The Food and Drug Administration's decision came after years of controversy over the fish, which is a type of new Atlantic salmon injected with a gene from Pacific Chinook salmon to make it grow faster.

The fish, called AquAdvantage Salmon, is made by AquaBounty Technologies in Massachusetts.

The FDA "has determined that they have met the regulatory requirements for approval, including that food from the fish is safe to eat," said Bernadette Dunham, director of the FDA's Center for Veterinary Medicine.

Regulators "determined that food from AquAdvantage Salmon is as safe to eat and as nutritious as food from other non-GE Atlantic salmon and that there are no biologically relevant differences in the nutritional profile of AquAdvantage Salmon compared to that of other farm-raised Atlantic salmon," the FDA said.

AquAdvantage Salmon may be raised only in land-based, contained hatchery tanks in two specific facilities in Canada and Panama, it added.

not a stereotype. It's a truth most people don't know about: French people complain about anything and everything. Constantly. I should know, I'm one. And I'm from Paris on top of it, so I'm even worse than the average French guy when it comes to complaining. We particularly love to complain about bad food and drinks. I'll be honest here, the average coffee made in the US is particularly terrible (not talking about beans but about the final produt, if I mean beans I'll say beans). And so is the average coffee we get in France. Everyone I know who lives or has been to the US told me coffee there is watered down to hell or plain badly prepared. I haven't been to the US so I can't voice my own opinion about it but I highly trust the judgment of a couple of these people and will therefore go with it. In France, the main problem is that the coffee is waaaaay over heated (you could even say burnt), which makes it terribly, terribly bitter. So it is badly prepared here too. My fellow countrymen may not like to admit it but the coffee we prepare in France is pretty darn bad compared to Italian coffee for example (I did not admit it myself until I actually went to Italy and tried tons of their coffees). Even Starbucks, which a lot of people love in Europe (in France as much as in the UK), prepare disgusting coffee. To realise that, you need to drink good coffee in the first place and then you can never go back.

There are many different ways to prepare excellent coffee. The best coffees I've personally had were in Vienna (Austria), Italy, and Vietnam (surprising I know, but the coffee grown there is of an incredible quality!). The most important things when making a good coffee are: The preparation method, the beans, and the water. If you buy ground coffee, use a mainstream coffee maker, and fill your machine with tap water you cannot expect your coffee to be good. Even just changing one of those 3 things can make a huge difference.

A few years ago I bought an Italian espresso maker. It only cost me 20 euros and I've never made any coffee as good as with this thing in my life. Even when using tap water and supermarket ground coffee the results are mind blowingly different from using a normal coffee maker. And when I am motivated enough to grind coffee beans and use mineral water, it tastes divine.

It's basically a 3 compartments machine that works with the water boiling at the bottom, steaming up through the coffee in the middle and condensing in the top compartment. Simple, and yet it makes a huge difference. The downsides are it is slow, only makes one espresso at a time , and you cannot increase the output. So it is only for people who feel quality is worth the wait. If you want to surprise yourself, give it a try.

It looks a bit like this (the machine I use has its own heating support so its simpler for me): http://www.wikihow.com/Brew-Authentic-Italian-Caffe

This process is all about quality over quantity. If you want to spend 20 seconds on making enough coffee for a day then this is not it. And that is why most coffees you'll have in bars, restaurants, coffee places and so on will be bad. They need to be efficient, produce large amounts fast, and that doesn't rhyme with good coffee. I worked in a restaurant for 6 months, and we used to make batches of 10 liters of coffee. I had one cup of that coffee, and never another.

For another example: In Vietnam, the coffee beans are fresh (no need for imports) and grounded on site right before being used. They also use bottled water instead of tap water since tap water is often not safe for drinking. Knowing this would be enough to assume the coffee they make is great but they don't even stop there. On top of it they use an extremelly slow and very precise dripping process that I have never seen anywhere else. I slap myself daily about not bringing a few sets of this method home.

The dripping is done one cup of coffee at a time. They give you an empty cup, put a small metal filter on top of it, and then add a metallic compartment on top of that. They fill the top compartment with ground coffee and boiled water, it is designed so they can never go wrong on the dosage. They serve it as the dripping is just starting and with water on the side so you can water it down to your taste. The dripping is happening in front of you, you have to be patient enough for it to finish but god it's worth it. You should have seen my face when I realised that this Vietnamese coffee I was having would always be 100 times better than any coffee I'd ever get in France, where we are so proud of it.

~Hell Coffee Delight~

Hell Coffee Delight

Ah yes, Hell Coffee Delight.

A truly delicious brew of taste, flavor, and complexity. This one is not easy.

First, grind your coffee beans. This should be obvious. What's not so obvious is pre-heating your blender. Boil some water, and pour it into your blender. Let it sit, until your blender is hot.

We don't want our coffee cold, do we?

As you boil your coffee water, dump the hot water from the blender.

Replace it with a square of high quality dark chocolate, a splash of almond extract, and a splash of vanilla extract. Add your ground coffee beans, and a thin slice of butter as well.

And as you form a pentagram with your finger, add a single chile de árbol pepper. Drizzle in some honey, to taste, and then prepare the blender.

Get your boiling coffee water from your pot or microwave, and pour it onto the ingredients in the blender. After pouring the hot water into the ingredients resting in the blender, immediately start the blender.

The coffee beans, chocolate, the extracts, honey and pepper will swirl together, getting well blended into the boiling water, forming Hell Delight Coffee.

If you like your coffee as dark as hell itself, forgo this step. Otherwise, add a little bit of milk after you feel it is well blended, and then continue blending, until you are satisfied.

Enjoy it as it is, or strain it through a mesh coffee filter. Not one of those paper ones, mind you. Use one that's metal.

This coffee will start your day right, with a proper amount of spice, flavor and intensity.

It is delicious. Hail Satan.

He also warns people not to use cassia, which very similar in colour, shape and taste, as it would cause cancer and several other health hazards.

John, who owns 45 acres of cinnamon plantation in Kannur district of Kerala, urged Karnataka chief minister Siddaramaiah to ban the sale of cassia as cinnamon. He also urged the Food Safety and Standards Authority of India (FSSAI) to take note of the rampant sale of cassia in the name of cinnamon in India.

He told reporters here on Tuesday that his fight will continue despite the fact he has been getting threatening calls from various places including Bengaluru. "Millions of Indians are being cheated by buying cassia instead of true cinnamon.

FSSAI in its website says that cassia contains high quantity of coumarin and it causes kidney and liver damages.

Further, it is carcinogenic too.

Hence, all states should ban the sale of cassia in the interest of public health. Moreover, it affects the sale of original cinnamon and farmers who grow it too," John said.

In September, the Kerala High Court has directed the state government to inform the court whether it had taken any step to prohibit the sale of cassia, which is allegedly sold in the state as cinnamon. Meanwhile, Tamil Nadu has already banned the sale of cassia, John said.

Those companies sell cassia as cinnamon are cheating people and earning crores, he said. "Though cassia is not grown in India, it is being imported from China, Indonesia and Vietnam. While the price of cassia is just Rs 60 per kg, it is being sold at Rs 400 per kg with a label mentioning it as cinnamon. Only a thorough lab analysis can differentiate cassia and cinnamon. An average of 4 lakh kg of cassia is being sold as cinnamon in India," he added.

i know all that is talking about india, but i just checked both of my cinnimon containers ( Mcormick and tones) and they both were made from cassia trees instead of cinnamon. Tones at least admitted it was cassia, but mcormick didnt say either way, and i had to look it up to see that it was made from cassia.

You kids remember Marie's Italian Tomato Sauce?

On 4chan /ck/ sometimes they'd say this was for a cooking class to show everything you shouldn't do, and I think I've confirmed that (or trolling or some shit). On their Youtube I found this listed as their official website, and it seems to list the videos seriously, along with other recipes. However, upon closer inspection, the recipes are fucking ridiculous and ask you to do shit like make chicken soup and pour the soup out. So I think that closes the case on this one once and for all, it really does have to be a hoax.

Dehydrating Food

So I just got my first dehydrator and I tried out a simple beef jerky recipe. Store bought steak marinade for overnight marinading. I know I should have made my own but I was getting a little itchy to try the dehydrator out. Got up this morning and dehydrated a pound and a half of round steak for four hours. It tastes a little salty and has a strong flavor of soy sauce. I think next time I'll marinade it in pineapple juice with a healthy amount of chipotle chili powder and a table spoon of liquid smoke for something sweet and spicy yet smoky.

I'm very new to this so any tips?

Do you have a dehydrator?

You… do order cheaper options where you can, right?

 

To show one example why it's a good idea to at least look around:

Deer meat

A family friend of mine went out hunting recently, and asked me yesterday if I wanted some of the meat. Naturally, I said yes, and today I acquired said hunk of meat. It's currently in the fridge defrosting, and I'm planning on cooking it tomorrow.

What tips can you all give me? How should I cook it? What does it go well with? This is my first time cooking with venison.

Tasty Drinks

What are some tasty drinks that aren't horrible for you?

I have an oral fixation, I can't stop drinking. I drink at least two gallons of water a day (I'm sure it'd be more if I actually measured). As a kid I drank shitloads of soda, but after a few cavities I stopped. Now I drink too much beer. Of course I like getting drunk, but a big part of it is that I enjoy the taste and having something tasty to chug. But alcohol is expensive and my health has gone to shit because of it, so it's about time I cut back. actually I should have stopped years ago before it made my life go to shit but better late than never

I'm sitting here with a hangover wondering if there is something tasty I can drink in mass quantities that isn't alcoholic, loaded with sugar, or milk (I'm lactose intolerant).

Cooked Lettuce

I don't like eating salads every goddamned day but I need to lose some weight. Do you guys have any decent recipes for cooked lettuce? I'm so sick of eating it raw for like two months now.

I tried making some wilted in a pan like tough spinach, but it's a little too bitter and my usual olive oil and vinegar dressing is not helping.

I imagine people didn't eat this stuff raw in the olden times because of how easy it is to catch e coli and listeria and stuff from raw vegetables. There has to be tasty ways to make it cooked.

ITT: Leftover-ingredients recipes

Share your recipes for meals from whatever was lying around at the time. I will post what I made today:

>hungry as fuck

>I can't order takeout since I am broke

>look around the fridge and pantry

>find a can of pork in lard

>find a half used packet of rice

>there are some carrots and lemons left from the time I was sick

>also scrounge some salt and powder paprika

>boil and cook the rice in one pot, fry the pork with lard on a pan

>when it's all mushy I put the rice in the pan and mix it together

>as it fries, cut the lemon in half and squeeze the juices in the pan

>when it's all half-fried, put some paprika and salt on it and mix it thoroughly

>when it's all fried, put my proto-rissoto on a plate

The food was very nice and quite filling, and the paprika and pork tastes mixed together quite well, too. I was worried that I may have blended too many flavors [paprika, salt, lemon], but it turned out alright. I will probably try it again some time.

Do you have any similar recipes, anon?
