I'm terrified of this thread, because I'm fairly certain I'll be eaten alive for posting in it as I'm a terrified new cook, but I just had to speak up and say something.

Dino, I just bought your recipe book, and it has made me a very, very happy goon. I just went back to being vegan and I really hate fakemeat so your book is pretty much the holy grail for me. It's easy and not scary at all! Thank you for writing it.

Now could one of y'all please explain the difference between good cookware and poo poo to me? Because I have pans from 1902 and I'm kind of stupid about what is worth buying when it comes to the kitchen. I know it's not all the same, but it LOOKS that way if you have no idea what you're doing...

God I suck balls for not learning how to properly cook before now.

Hello! Nothing to be afraid of, as long as you don't click the NWS links, and don't espouse using convenience foods.

Have you checked out the "Help! I'm poor and want to eat good food" thread? It's pretty essential for anyone starting to cook, especially if on a tight budget.

I would also recommend the EXCELLENT (ahem) no-knead bread thread if you want to start making your own bread as part of eating better for less.

Also: many of us did not grow up cooking - we all had to start somewhere, but the important thing was that we started.


In other news:

- I can't touch peach skin. Even thinking about it makes the hairs on my arms stand up. I once finally realised that a girl liked me when she showed up at my apartment with a peach to peel for me.

- I just got back from a work trip to Berlin and had three fantastic meals: vegetarian at an amazing underground place called Cookies Cream; a lunch at the hotel I had a bunch of meetings at which had a rather good restaurant called Facil - very good food, actually, and absolutely beautifully presented; and a dinner at an uber-cool pop-up restaurant in an old mint, called Pret a Diner. gently caress, Berlin's cool. (And cold, but that was actually OK).

There you go, EVG. I'm not sure why the Kindle edition is priced almost the same as the print edition. Odd.

In a totally unrelated note, the chattists may remember that I left my Kindle on a subway on Tuesday. I filled out the MTA online lost and found thing. I got an email last night, saying that something with my name has been turned in, and to please come retrieve it. I have my kindle back.

Words fail me. Seriously.

I believe it's called karma. My cellphone fell out of my pocket on the tube once. I went home and called it, sure that I'd get it back, as I'd be sure to try and return it to somebody if I found theirs. After a while someone answered - a station staff member to whom somebody had handed it in. Many people are honest.

Rule .303, I hear you, but I think what you are saying is that any movement attracts people who are into a fundamentalist, self-righteous way of doing things, and the more extreme the movement, the higher the proportion of those assholes.

I like normal books but a kindle is a bloody godsend for reading scripts. Instead of lugging a few around all the time (read once, chuck, multiply by x colleagues), PDFs just get emailed to us. It's also a lot easier to read one-handed while commuting, and one never had to spend time looking for one's place.

Ahh.. but see - every time I buy a hardcopy I have to pay freight from the states, then I have to pay 25% added import tax, because of no free-trade agreement with the states. Alternatively I have to buy it in Denmark, where the price for a book is at standard around USD 30-40, alternatively I can buy them in UK, but still at a higher price, and not get as much diversity..

So the kindle is good to me..

But then again - I've been reading poo poo, so perhaps I'm the one losing out.

He probably means Shimbo's The Japanese Kitchen. Or at least that's the one he recommended in the cookbook thread. I remember because ever since I ordered it, amazon's been recommending all kinds of weeaboo poo poo to me like anime buttplugs and pocky.

Right, and I suppose it was just because of that cookbook. Nice try. Do they make pocky buttplugs?

That reminds me! I tried to replicate Japanese spinach with sweet sesame dressing (gomaae?), going just by gut feel. I used tahini, sugar, mirin, and a dash of soy, and it was loving awesome. Better than I've had in many restaurants.

Tahini? No way dude, you need crushed sesame seeds for goma-ae. Your version is completely inauthentic and bogus. (Gonna go try it now, that would kick the hell out of sitting around like an idiot with my mini mortar and pestle.)

What, pray tell, is tahini if not crushed sesame seeds? I was very proud of myself.

Actually, yesterday I was proud of myself too. For lunch I made zuppa di pasta e fagioli with rosemary and sage foccacia and garlic-butter cavalo nero (blanch cavalo nero, drain, then fry with butter and garlic). So when it came round to dinner, I cooked some beaten eggs with the left-over cavalo nero and some grated cheese, and served that atop some toasted foccacia, and it was good.

When I traveled a lot I totally focused on points. Got me some free nights in a Marriott in Amsterdam for my troubles, but it took a fuckload of stays. I did much better accumulating AA points; took advantage of some special to get to gold then platinum, and flew twice a week for months.

It sucked. I don't miss that life at all.

Getting to gold at different airlines and hotel chains is some sort of weird real life version of a game with levelling up.. It really speaks to the nerd in you!

The advantages on the other hand (upgrades, and a loving newspaper, and also free stays), are really not worth the investment of time, and leaves you feeling like an empty husk.
In my case it took two phone calls. I got about 2 free transatlantic trips and 2 return trips to South Africa, so it was well worth it.
If you're travelling a lot it's stupid not to get something for nothing. Just don't make getting the points the point.
