Where can I buy one?

I would never shop at Costco. The paper towels won't fit into my sports car!

Aside from taking up valuable oven space, having an in stovetop pressure cooker is a super cool idea. I would love that.

so um, is a 3 L instant pot big enough for two people or should I spring for a 6 L? asking for a friend.

You can still only fill them like 2/3 full, right? I'd prefer the option to have more leftovers than that, or be able to cook for more people, personally.

Get the 6.




My wife and I have been trying various grains lately. We've both fallen head over heels for farro, and had some millet last night. Millet is okay...it's kind of like quinoa. Didn't have much flavor of its own, just whatever it absorbed from the bean broth I cooked it in. Chopped up a bunch of dill and feta and mixed it all in with some lemon juice, overall it was delicious. Probably because of the cheese.


Oh yeah, also, we bought some saffron this weekend but have never used it before. What's the best first exposure dish to make using some?

Farro and millet are the tits. Here is my favorite recipe for each:

paella if you can swing it.

Make sure to bloom the saffron in hot water before you use it. Some people crush it up in a mortar and pestle too, but basically you need to steep it a bit before you put it in a dish to make sure you get the most flavor out of it.

Good call. A Spanish-flavoured rice pudding is also very good with saffron.

Since coming here to Vegas, I have eaten and drank so well. It's really phenomenal, living here everyday, with all of the choices available. I'm working out every day too,and still not dropping weight.

Tonight's pleasant surprise: eating on invitation with others at a Chinese buffet and finding, amid the king pao chicken, a ton of delicious super authentic stuff with a heavy emphasis on soups, greens, and seafood.

Best experience so far, though, was getting drunk on absinthe at downtown cocktails and then getting late night tacos at gordo.

Wiggles: Doing Vegas Right.

Have you hit Chada Street and Chada Thai yet? They both deserve visits. Also Raku, Raku Sweets, and Zen Japanese Curry since they're all in the same parking complex.

Chada is so tempting, but it's across from fuku burger and I can't say no to those jazz fries.

Been to both rakus a couple of times, and it's legit the best Japanese food I've ever had. The tofu at raku omg hom nom nom.

went to chubby cattle, that poo poo was awesome.

e. was a solid A

I feel like this is some kind of golden age of Vegas restaurant dining or something. You can get nearly anything at almost any price point or level of fussiness. The Strip still has some old guard mega-expensive destination restaurants, plus a few others that manage to avoid the "we have a celebrity chef's name on our wall to attract Food Network fans but our food sucks" norm. Off-Strip is a blend of first-, second-, and third-generation locally trained chefs with a ton of talent and access to great ingredients. And for the fast food crowd, we've got In-n-Out, Steak n Shake, Five Guys, White Castle, Smash Burger, Fundamentalist Chicken, and almost any other cult favorite. Plus a few local spots that are worth a drat, and the first US outposts of Tacos el Gordo, along with Jollibee and a few other Filipino favorites.

We're weak on Indian food, Middle Eastern stuff (though I did just find a pretty amazing Persian spot), and Sichuan. But that's about it. It's pretty remarkable how quickly this town's grown up from slob buffets and Robouchon-or-bust.

Remember: no matter where you go, there you are.

Vegas food is hitting a really good groove. I finally was able to hit Esther's Kitchen in the Arts District. Super loving good all around, great atmosphere. James Trees is killing it. Definitely going back for happy hour for as much wine and bread as I can handle.

All true. This is becoming one of the best places in the world to eat. Or to cook! The number of specialty shops available to the home cook is fantastic.
