To be fair, the insects that people generally eat are those that are found in a great abundance, like cockroaches, locusts, and crickets. They're generally considered pests and are no where nearly as pleasant to look at as a glorious beetle, for example.



>the insects that people generally eat are those that are found in a great abundance, like cockroaches, locusts, and crickets

Yeah, this is what I'm thinking. You wouldn't give much of a damn about eating mealworms, the bitey annoying sorts of feeder crickets that eventually escape the cage, a freshly molted cicada that would just drone or the typical brown or black ants you'd find in the kitchen. Meanwhile, you'd be upset if someone destroyed something pretty like an Owl Butterfly or a really cool dragonfly.

Brined a rack of spare ribs for 11 hours and put them in the oven with a dry rub. They turned out juicy, tender, and had a balanced salty flavor all the way through.



Damnit now I want brussel sprouts.



Same. Cooked with some lardons, butter, and nutmeg.

Fanciest thing I've made are jelly sandwich cookies, pic related. I really enjoy hot cocoa, so I might try making some sort of fancy peppermint hot cocoa with peppermint liqueur and a candy cane or something. I also haven't tried making it with melting chocolate instead of cocoa powder, so I will probably try that as well and compare.

I usually spend Christmas alone with Anons, so I don't make anything fancy. I'll probably make simple fish with a cider sauce and potatoes, it's always nice and I can finish the cider during the evening.


These look very good, they remind me of our lunettes de Romans ("Romans' eyeglasses") that are shortbread cookies between a thin layer of sticky, very syrupy jelly.

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.

Has anyone tried Hokusai? I'd be willing to buy it just for the packaging but I can't speak for the flavor. I live in burgerland, so shipping isn't exactly convenient. Embed related, the guy who made the video has thousands of ramen review videos on his channel, all in the same format. I suggest taking a peak at them if you're curious.

File: c5d3a64167e7a9d⋯.jpg (53.51 KB, 750x500, 3:2, dd-composite-slug.jpg)

A bit overrated in my opinion.

Most of what you taste is the butter and parsley sauce, which is usually delicious. In the south they use tomatoes, thyme and bacon. Some Mediterranean dishes only require olive oil as sauce and minimal preparation, so they taste like fucking dirt.

Some people here eat their garden snails after having let them fast for a fortnight so that they expel the contents of their digestive system.

I've never done it myself because I don't know my snails and don't want to get sick, llowhich reminds me of that Australian kid who died recently who had swallowed a slug and got rat lungworm.



This image makes me sad, but at the same time it makes me trip over how handsome you'll look if you actually take care of yourself.

Seconding anon >>15271, it's almost entirely butter and parsley (and garlic), which is indeed fucking delicious. The texture of the snail itself is chewy but it's satisfying with the flavour.

I wouldn't use snails from the garden, I would buy snails raised and prepared for escargot.


Eating snails from your garden is a good way to fucking die

What are foods that you absolutely hate?

For me its raw onions. I hate their texture, flavor, and they overpower everything else that is with them. I have absolutely no problems with onions if they are cooked in some way. In fact I think fried, grilled, and sauteed onions are fantastic and onions mixed into a salsa are fine.

Raw onions for some reason though are absolutely disgusting to me and if I cant pick them out of a meal then I will refuse to eat it.

Turnips and by extension rapini. Only poison is meant to be that bitter.



I agree with almost everything here but those hard peppercorns add a lot of flavor to some Chinese dishes, and while nobody cares for soggy carrots their taste isn't offensive, just unappetizing. I love the roast chickens. Only thing I would add are eggplants/aubergines, I've had them prepared multiple ways, all terrible.

>>how do I make it creamy

>Add more starch with thinly sliced potatoes or directly with corn or potato starch

or make a roux and add a roux (butter and flour that's been cooked to remove the flour taste) to the soup

alternatively, you could make a good stock and reduce it to get it naturally thicker, and if it's not creamy enough, just add some cream


Anyone ever tried making a griebenschalz type dish with bacon? I'm thinking I'd fry up a pound of bacon, then once it's completely crispy, grind the bacon up and mix it back into the rendered bacon fat.

Anyone done this? Is it worth an experiment if not?






Traditionally you make it by using pork belly and flare fat with a 50:50 ration. If you want less grieben take less pork belly and more flare fat. Using smoked pork belly aka bacon should work too. I guess people don't do it because the schmalz is also often used for cooking and there the smoke flavor is likely not wanted. If you intend to use it just as a spread I think it might be good. Try it out and report.



I intend to use it only as a spread, yes. Though I must add, traditionally bacon grease was the cooking fat of choice in most of the USA, but the south in particular.

I was at a party the other day and somebody brought this spread that was supposedly greek, had lots of garlic in it and the bulk of the spread was supposedly MADE OUT OF BREAD, i forgot the name of it, does anybody know what i could be talking about? shit was so good


Skordalia. It can also be made with potatoes.



Thats the shit! Thanks.


it tastes like shit


Bread is the traditional ancient way. Potatoes are the new school post-Columbus way. Some people eat the potato version by itself as super garlicky garlic mashed potatoes, but it's traditionally used as a suce or spread. I just packed up the family cookbook, or I'd give you my family's not so secret recipe for it.

How do you cook octopus, /ck/? I just cooked one and it turned out okay, I simmered for about 30 minutes, until I could pierce the flesh with a knife without much resistance. Then I drained it and let it cool. After it cooled I tossed it with olive oil, salt, and pepper and then grilled it for about 5 minutes until browned on both sides. The flavor was quite good, but it was a bit chewier than I would have liked. A couple pieces of the arms were quite tender, but parts of the mantle were pretty rubbery. What do you guys do to get better flavor/texture for your octopus?

1 post omitted. Click reply to view.



>Beat the octopus

that sounds lewd

But I have heard of doing that to tenderize it, I'm also thinking I may have overcooked it the first time. I think for my second attempt I will beat it in the sink and instead of simmering it in water, I'll use red wine and vegetables.



Physically tenderize it. Also, to keep it from getting rubbery, it should be cooked very fast or very slow. A quick grill or a few hours in the slow cooker. It's the in between phase where it turns to rubber. I've also heard it's good pickled.


Beat the meat with a wooden rod or freeze solid and thaw. The ice crystals that form in the meat help tenderize it.


Go to Miller's Pub in Chicago, and order their calamari. Best sex of your life.



>scrub with salt in the sink to remove algae etc from surface (often done before you buy it) then rinse well

>physically tenderize- honestly freezing it is the best way to do this, as the ice crystals really break up the structure inside, but beating it with a rolling pin or something will help as well

what exactly are the downsides of soy?

i've been trying to avoid it for years now but it's literally in everything unless my diet triples in price

4 posts omitted. Click reply to view.



Soybeans are relatively cheap protein and fat, so you'll often find soy used as filler in place of more desirable ingredients in pre-packaged foods. Processed soy 'replacement' products (like vegan meat or cheese substitutes) often range from tolerable to terrible, and never as good as the original that the product is trying to replicate. Other than that, soybeans are just fine as long as you don't expect beans to be something they aren't.

Soy boys aren't really a thing; they'd be faggots with or without the soy. Soy milk is just a trend for them right now, like the faggot version of bacon but, ironically, with less meat.



>just a trend for them

Man, remember sriracha?



This. Soy really becomes a problem if it's exclusively the only thing you eat (hence the soylent effect).

I'm not joking or trying to be funny. Semen has a high protein density which makes it at the very least nutritious. That being said, how can semen be used in cooking? I was thinking about using semen as a condiment for burgers, hot dogs and sandwiches. Have you ever done any kitchen experimentation with semen? What do you think it could go well with? Any recipes or recipe ideas? Any serious intake on this subject is much appreciated.

I'm not one bit surprised, I just haven't seen a thread on it. There is a whole fetish(?) based on it. Dudes seem to love skeeting on things and then seeing either someone use the thing or eat it. Something something ingesting their seed, I assume. Also the whole thing of skeeting on women and them not know it.


File: 79d998932ed72fe⋯.jpg (40.51 KB, 493x500, 493:500, Natural Harvest: A collect….jpg)

There is a book for you.


The description is :

Semen is not only nutritious, but it also has a wonderful texture and amazing cooking properties. Like fine wine and cheeses, the taste of semen is complex and dynamic. Semen is inexpensive to produce and is commonly available in many, if not most, homes and restaurants. Despite all of these positive qualities, semen remains neglected as a food. This book hopes to change that. Once you overcome any initial hesitation, you will be surprised to learn how wonderful semen is in the kitchen. Semen is an exciting ingredient that can give every dish you make an interesting twist. If you are a passionate cook and are not afraid to experiment with new ingredients - you will love this cook book!
