For me, that would be durian and a fish based pho that I tried. Durian is like eating farts, and I swear anyone who claims to like it is just waving their food dick around to impress others. Food should not taste like garbage.

Durian is creamy and doesn't actually taste bad it just smells bad, so I think it's more like eating pudding while someone is farting in your face

My roommate set fire to some bacon in our toaster oven and ended up using the fire extinguisher on it. He wiped it down and says its clean. I don't smell any fumes, but should we toss it anyways?

Well, it is kinda nice to be able to sear beef in a dutch oven and then make beef stew in the same vessel. You can also do it separately with a skillet, yes, but a little bit of the fond gets left behind that way.

But yes in general a aluminum/steel pot will work the same as an enameled dutch oven in most functions. When Cook's Illustrated reviewed dutch ovens, the All-Clad steel stockpot tied with the Le Creuset for first place.

I use Staub which has a glass surface, never had a problem with chipping from too much heat, as I have with le creuset on multiple occations - they retain heat beautifully, they do not ruin the taste of the food, they are durable and good in use too..

Wait, what's this about Staub and glass? I got a Staub, how's the enamel different?

Okay cool, I kinda regretted getting one at first because the black made it hard to see how browned my meats got, but that's pretty cool

edit: also, the outside bottom got slightly chipped from wear and tear (it was a floor model at half price) but the nice thing was that they did multiple coats so under the enamel was more enamel

Speaking of crab... I was thinking about how many fake foods there are out there. Without even getting into genetically modified stuff, we have

- Fake crab meat (krab) is pollack
- 99% of "wasabi" is horseradish with green food coloring
- Most stuff sold as cheese at the grocery is "cheese product"
- Most of the "blueberries" you get in muffins are corn syrup and food coloring
- Most "maple syrup" isn't
- Most "balsamic vinegar" isn't
- "Cinnamon" in the US is cassia
- Most "truffle oil" isn't

What else is there

edit: VVVV Eh I dunno why I threw that out there

It drives me crazy when my girlfriend washes disposable forks. We have real forks! The only - only! - reason to use a shittier disposable version is you don't have to wash it when you're done!

No, the other reason for plastic forks is to give appropriate atmosphere to spam and kraft dinner.

To celebrate my resignation I've cracked open a bottle of cheap red someone gifted us to drink while I cook dinner. That'll do, pig, that'll do.

Sadly, I know this from personal experience... although it was still the USSR when I was there. I don't know why the gently caress you'd ever design a toilet like that.

Actually I learned about it from my friend who also visited when it was the USSR. He got into an argument with someone there about poop shelves vs water bowls.

Shut up, my favorite andouille sausage brand is made with chicken. I like being able to eat a couple of links at once without my heart thudding to a dead stop as it does with the pork stuff.

But generally, yeah, chicken sausages are sadface.

Is it Aidell's? Because their chicken sausages actually are nice and greasy and taste close enough to pork.

I bought a bunch of Trader Joe's chicken sausages thinking it would be the same, but after I cook with them there's less oil in my pan than when I started
