Welcome to the food forum. Here we talk about favorite foods, least favorite foods, whether or not mushrooms are disgusting or delicious, and what we can cook/would like to cook! You don't have to answer all at once.

I for one, am more of a baker at this time. I'm good with cakes, cookies, and other desserts. Though I do happen to make one hell of a roast chicken and a great homemade macaroni and cheese.

Stuffing = greatest food in the world

Also, cranberries have no business being on the same plate as turkey. There, I said it.

Nooooo kidding.

Stuffing is the shit. Especially homemade stuff. None of this stovetop crap.


Title: Re: Fans of Food Unite!
Post by: AmadeusMaxwell on April 18, 2010, 01:07:18 pm
Actually, I've had lots of different varieties of homade stuffing, and while I like it, personally I don't think any of it beats stovetop. I think stovetop is the only food I know that's better than homemade. That's just me though.

Cranberries really do not belong with Turkey.

Best pizza ever is in Cooperstown NY right down the street from the baseball hall of fame.  Overall in my experience the farther you get from New York city or Chicago the harder it is to find good pizza.  But I haven't made it to Italy yet.

And I love making my own ;)

In Texas the only half-decent pizza you can get is from Italian restaurant, and while they're a thousand times better than the abomination that is fast-food pizza, from what I hear it's still no where near as good as Pizza from Chicago.

/want to try someday

On the plus side, we have a lot of really good Mexican restaurants. Also, if you're in Texas and a non-english speaking stranger walks up to you with tamales in tin foil and is offering you to buy them, you say "YES" "SI" :P

Not from what I remember, but I do recall the waiter being kind of rude. It's kind of how at every restaurant I went to in Italy, my desert was always Tiramisu. Of course if I went back there now I would try a variety of different things, but I was 12, so that justifies everything xD

... Uh HUH. Okay. I hate Panda Express. Just no. Real Chinese is much better.

Speaking of which, has anyone had homemade Thai curry? THAT is the proof that God exists. My friend's stepmother is basically first generation Thai and when I went over, she made us curry with chicken. I miss that curry...


This was also the place where I learned to enjoy soy sauce on everything and learned that just because something is called "mango salad", it doesn't mean it's sweet.

Mango salad is made up of shrimp, mangoes, other vegetable/fruit materials, and TINY, RED, THAI PEPPERS. One bite will make even the most masculine, manly man weep like a little baby. And eating one of those peppers ensures that you have no tastebuds for awhile. My friend ate one. I was smart and didn't.

While we were supposed to be blowing up balloons for the military ball, my friends Amber and Christine went in my kitchen and started rummaging around. I was like "uhh excuse me wtf r u doin" but I didn't go check because I was playing "Afterlife" on expert on Rock Band.

I say we skip to the main course with a recipe that works wonders, and one that I learned from a master: Marinate her in white wine, dipped in a light corn batter and all wrapped up in banana leaves. Roasted overnight under a pit of a hundred hot coals and served on a bed of basmati rice with a garnish of shitake mushrooms and shallots.

Delicious, am I right? And it includes mushrooms for your dining pleasure.

Her screams of anguish and mind-numbing terror mixed in with the life-long trauma of what you just did says otherwise.
And what we are doing is something highly cultural, civilized and educational! We are preparing an exquisite dish of profound taste for the wonder and undeniable pleasure of meatbags everywhere! To think that you of all people would disapprove of such a venture is simply astonishing... I am very disappointed in you, your lordship.

I've never made my own stock but the only soup I can make that doesn't come out of can or soup mix is a broccoli and cheddar cheese soup.  Mmmm, yummy.

Well that's not entirely true, my favorite way to get rid of leftover chicken is to cube it and make chicken soup with lots of fresh veggies.  My shortcut is I use chicken flavored ramen noodles as the base  :P

I see.

My mother has an interesting way of making her own stock from the baked chicken carcass. She boils it in a pressure cooker which takes a lot of stuff (<-- I don't know what exactly) from the chicken and makes it look almost like jello when it is in the refridgerator. A few days later she puts the extra meat, some veggies, and chicken bullion into a pot and makes soup! It's actually really easy.

Essentially, it is jello (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gelatin). The thing that gives Jello and gelatin, its shape is collagen extracted from animal bones and skin. She's really making homemade chicken jello. :D

Post by: Tori-saurus-rex on April 28, 2010, 12:44:37 pm
I thought that was the only way to make stock, boilg bones and carcass if available.
I hate stock made completely from flavored powders. I only use a bit to add saltiness and a little more flavor.
With beef soups I use the roast drippings, and with chicken and turkey I use the bones.


Title: Re: Fans of Food Unite!
Post by: AmadeusMaxwell on April 28, 2010, 12:51:08 pm
I think that's right Tori, but to make it into gelatin all you have to do is pour out the excess water after boiling and let it cool; I think, I've never made it myself before. Pretty sure it just lets you save the stock to be added to a soup later.


Title: Re: Fans of Food Unite!

I remember an episode of the Dr. Who spin-off Torchwood where bodies were being found skinned with organs removed. Next night in car going to pub quiz:

Me: Catch Torchwood?
Dr_Evil & his girlfriend (driving): Yes.
Me:You could just tell they were Welsh cannibals and not Scots.
Others:...
Me:You saw those bodies? Legs, arms, HEADS! No way a Scot would leave all that there!
All together: BILE IT FER SOUP!!
(car nearly crashes due to hilarity)
....
Dr_Evil's Girlfriend to me: Lucky your father hates all Dr. Who things. If he'd seen that he'd have gone nuts. I mean they left shanks and *everything*....

I set out to make epic sandwiches for work this weekend. I bought a bunch of nice ciabatta rolls from a local deli along with some awesome fresh tomatoes and red onions.   Muenster cheese, mayo, stone ground mustard, roast beef, hard salami, some romaine lettuce.  I just ate the first one and it is EPIC.  I need to decide which lunch meats I will use tomorrow.

Gotta love fresh sandwiches.
I cannot stand having to pack a sandwich for lunch though, it sits and it gets soggy and then it's just not appetizing any more.
I will, however, pack all the ingredients seperately and assemble the sandwich later.

My work forces us to take an hour lunch, so I usually prefer to dine in somewhere just to kill time.

I cannot stand having to pack a sandwich for lunch though, it sits and it gets soggy and then it's just not appetizing any more.
I've been kicking around an idea for a while that I'd really like to try, but don't have the funding for. Anywho, I'd like to try to open a "fast-food" place that sold only healthy stuff, not even making the unhealthy stuff an option (like soda). It'd primarily sell fresh fruit, fresh brewed tea of a few different kinds (with actual tea, not the crappy tea bags), bread made daily, salads, and actually cook meat instead of the pre-packaged thawed out crap. The idea is that there's a lot of people that want to eat healthy, but don't want to cook for themselves, bring their lunch to work, or go into a diner(which still isn't always great for you), so there's a ton of people driving around looking for a something quick and cheap, so I wanna make that option available and toss it up across the street from a McDonalds and see where all the single women and surburban wives flock to. :P

There are places like you described that exist, unfortunately they are rather hard to find. And usually exist as holes in the wall. I love 'home cooking'. Even if I'm not the one cooking it.

Yep, you perfectly described a little sandwich place that used to be in the town I grew up in.  The very definition of a hole in the wall but GOOD food.

Food can be tasty, healthy, quick or cheap, but it's not usually all of those. It would be hard to turn a profit off of a place like that... not that it can't be done.


Title: Re: Fans of Food Unite!
Post by: AmadeusMaxwell on April 30, 2010, 01:21:35 pm
Yeah, I'm thinking the only way it'd make money is if it was an addition to a place that already has access to the ingredients, say a World Market or similar type of grocery store. I've seen some groceries stories with something similar, but they're dine in only, no sort of drive-thru or quick option short of take out. Plus all those places in my area are out of the way just to get to them. Also those shops still have a lot of unhealthy stuff that I often see people going "Well I just ate healthy, so I'm sure it'll be okay for me to eat a mound of chocolate cake as large as my head" /facepalm

Edit: Also, another way to attempt to rake in customers, I'd like to open next to it a gym that doesn't charge people for a membership. I'd just make the walls nothing but pure advertisements that I'd charge companies to put up monthly. There's also a ton of people that'd like to excercise, but don't want to pay for a membership, so I think you could get a lot of people in there so advertisers would flock to peddle their product. Also, once you have the equipment to a gym, there's no cost of having it open other than that literal cost of keeping the doors open which is cheap, and you'd only eve have to pay 1-2 people to make sure people aren't screwing around and do light maintenance. Since it'd technically be a "public" building proposition your local city to fund it and/or make it a tax write off. :P

I fear I'm going off topic at this point though. >.>

Yeah usually they run a little steap in prices. But I'd rather pay $10 for soup, sandwich, and a cuppa than for a combo meal at a fast food joint.
I feel like shite after eating fast food. The onyl thing I can usually get away with safely is whatever version of breaded chicken strips they serve.

My grandma used to make this pan friend batterred chicken. And then steam it, so that the batter, would be more like a doughey soft, egg skin over the chicken breasts.
It's easy to make:

Cut your chicken thin and long - slice through the middle so that the breast halves or thirds are large but thin. It's easy to do this when they are partially thawed.

Prepare a seasoning and flour mixture ( flour and season salt or any poultry compatible spices/herbs ) - coat each breast.

Dip each coated breast in a egg and milk bathe ( dredging the breasts, make sure the mixture is slightly heavier with egg than milk )

Repeat for 2 coatings - 2 times is easy and not as messy, but 3 or 4 coats is extra yummy.

Pan fry, in a enough oil to submerse the bottom half-ish of each breast, until crispy and medium brown on the outer coating.

You can eat them now or you can steam them to soften up the coating and chicken just a bit.
To steam them, have a large ( quite large ) pot with a bottom 1/2 inch of water and a raised rack ( think cooling rack ) just above the water. As your chicken finished inthe frying pan, put them into the pot and allow them to steam with the lid on. They're done steaming when the coating/"skin" is loose and can be pushed or pulled away form the chicken slightly.

A good cup of green tea (http://www.sciencedirect.com/science?_ob=ArticleURL&_udi=B6T4T-4KPP4JN-1&_user=10&_coverDate=01%2F31%2F2007&_rdoc=1&_fmt=high&_orig=search&_sort=d&_docanchor=&view=c&_acct=C000050221&_version=1&_urlVersion=0&_userid=10&md5=b694e44cc8a2c2cba50f1c6de0611de6) can help with stress. As for food, there aren't any that I'm aware of that do.

As far as cooking goes, if you enjoy doing it, anything that will take your mind off of the specific thoughts causing the stress will help and is theraputic

That's too bad, there is somethign really satisfying about any brewed drink.
For me cooking and destressing is all about smell. If it smells good, it makes me feel better.

Baking is my absolute favorite bad mood or stress reliever. It smells good while it's baking and it's somethign sweet and warm as a reward at the end.

Heh, I was about to mention that baking reminded me of chocolate (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chocolate#Health) as a potential stress reliever, but there's no proof that it does; I think it's more of a psychoactive benefit for some people.

I know a few people that don't like tea based on what they're normally served, which is processed brown tea, but if you can get your hands on some fresh green tea, and optionally use just a spoon full of honey as sweetner, it's phenomenally better than brown tea.

Yeah, *shrug* it's not for everyone. Most places I've had tea though usually end up ruining it by just letting the tea leaves brew for too long, they throw it in and walk away and forget about it, which winds up making it intensly more bitter than it's meant to be.

That's one of the reasons I hate drinking tea made by anyone other than my mother. No one knows how to make it right. They do like you said and toss it in and forget about it, or the actually boil the teabags in the water which is just plain stupid. You're supposed to boil the water, then steep the teabags.

Sweet tea is supposed to be an art in the south. Why do so many people not know how to make it right?

From what I've read and little bit of expereience, to make it more bitter and taste good so that it still tastes like tea and not ground dirt, you should just use more tea , not let it steep longer ;)

Also, my god. I've been sad lately and I just want a good meal for once, everything since Saturday has been a let down. My steak was mostly gristle and the parts I could eat were redonkulously tough to chew. Any suggestions for a good meal?

Nihtgenga's Recipe for Tea:

Ingredients:

*1 pint mug
*About a finger-width of milk in the bottom
*6-10 teabags, depending on quality.

So... yeah. If it weren't a frivolous waste, I'd put two or three teabags in every (normal-sized) mug.

Also, my god. I've been sad lately and I just want a good meal for once, everything since Saturday has been a let down. My steak was mostly gristle and the parts I could eat were redonkulously tough to chew. Any suggestions for a good meal?

'Good' is subjective. One recipe could be bloody brilliant one day and just OK the next, because how you feel effects what you want to eat, and what you want to eat effects how much you enjoy what you do eat.

That said, if you want something simple and delicious, make some pesto pasta, add some hot sauce/chilli sauce/peri peri sauce/whatever and a buttload of chopped garlic.

Or just make a hearty stew.

Or make an Italian omelette:

Ingredients:
4 or 5 eggs, caraway seed (Decent shake), onion, shredded cabbage, good handful of cooked spaghetti, oxo, shake of worcestershire sauce, parmesan cheese, 1/2 to 1 teaspoon of cumin and lots of garlic.

What to do:
Finely chop onion and cut cabbage into shreds. Fry in a pan with caraway seed, cumin and garlic. Add worc. sauce. Allow to cool slightly.
Beat eggs in a large bowl. Add spaghetti, cheese, oxo and cabbage mixture.
Turn the mixture into an oiled pan. Cook making sure you stop the sides and bottom sticking. Place under a grill until top is dark golden brown. At this point you can either turn upside down and pan cook for a bit longer orspread with pesto, cover with ordinary cheese and return to the grill until the top looks golden and bubbly.

My mum's recipe. It is bloody wonderful.

I know that rule a little too well. My mom made tea once and used a bag intended to make five gallons of tea, but she only had a pitcher that was a gallon and a half. It was like drinking coffee.

I've been eating a lot of salad lately; I bought a head of lettuce, cauliflower, onion, radish and chopped it all up together. Also I bought some ham steaks to add to it when I prepare an individual serving. ;D

I'm glad you liked that bread!  It's a favorite on mine with chunky chili topped with cheese! :-)

Speaking of Salad, i had a really good one today with cucumbers, romaine lettuce, red bell peppers and carrot, topped with a bit of tuna salad and crunchy jalapeno chips. yum yum.

Dearlord what have i done...

A few nights ago i made a sauce to go on pasta. It was tuna, chick pease, kidney beans, chopped tomaroes, italian herbs and a dash of chilli powder. Its a nice sauce for pasta.

I had some left over and didnt want pasta again but didnt want to waste it and i wasnt sure if itd last. So i chucked in some eggs and stuff scrambled it up and attempted an omlette with it.

What has been produced looks like a near perfect representation to vomit. Still tastes good though. So conflicted.

Scrap the tuna and I'm in. :P

I like tuna....but it just doesn't go with any of the above, imo.

I've been eating lots of fruit, generally an apple or banana for breakfast, and for dinner I usually have a plum and either some grapes or celery. Still have a cantelope that I have yet to cut up, I think I might do that tonight. Nom nom.

I am currently eating dinner. It is a rainbow trout that I caught and killed myself, which was oak-smoked, then grilled with Thai seven spice seasoning. Accompanying it is a thick tomato, onion, mushroom and herb sauce. It is bloody tidy.

I made venison burgers Friday night. I threw in two eggs with two pounds of meat since venison is way more lean than beef, and I didn't want it to dry out.

I liked it a lot, but I should've put just one egg in two pounds; I think the extra moisture made it a bit too difficult to cook all the way through. They turned out about medium-well, where as my friend can't stomach anything less than well-done. The only two that got well done got slightly burnt on the outside. :/

Late response, but that was actually the first crepe recipe we've made.  It's my favourite so far.  We use Nutella as chocolate sauce, because Nutella is great.  :D

Delisisso pizza tastes yummy. Quite juicy.

yes, nutella is good, but try that shit with actual melted chocolate. with bananas it is even more awesome.

I had some cheese parathas for lunch today. They're basically a layer of cheese between two layers of pastry, you dry-fry them. Bloody lovely, though they are incredibly easy to burn.

I'll take it!

So, last night I tried to follow this recipe (http://chinesefood.about.com/od/ricefried/r/basicfriedrice.htm) to make some venison fried rice. It was good, but it didn't turn out how I wanted it to. It didn't have the consistency that most fried rice has, it was more like a lightly seared mash of white rice...I dunno. Anyone have any tips to make fried rice that's actually like fried rice? :slowpoke:


Title: Re: Fans of Food Unite!
Post by: Cheez on April 18, 2012, 05:27:08 pm
I freakin' love fried rice, and have it fairly often. Straight away I noticed what was wrong- the oil you're using. First things first, the recipe says 'oil for stir-frying'. If I didn't know better and saw that recipe I'd assume they just meant vegetable oil. Is that what you used, or did you use stir fry oil? Stir fry oil is better than veg oil, but personally I use groundnut oil at first, then sesame oil. The order seems a tad funny too. Personally I'd do the egg first like they say (Never tried to make egg fried rice, so... *shrug), then I'd lightly fry the onions (and whatever else you're adding) in some groundnut oil. Once they're done to taste, add the rice. Then add the sesame oil and soy/oyster sauce, and fry until done. using the right amount of oil is pretty tricky- I have a tendency to put too much in as I like the sesame oil's flavour- but once you've done it a few times you should figure out how much is best.

These fancy oils can be pretty damn expensive. I'm lucky, my local Lidl does them for 99p/bottle.


Title: Re: Fans of Food Unite!
Post by: AmadeusMaxwell on April 18, 2012, 06:50:53 pm
Thanks Cheez, I'll try those out. I was using Canola Oil; I bought it to use in some other recipes that called for it specifically, and it's the only oil I have at the moment, but oh I will remedy that! I've been getting my cook on. I figure just getting in the kitchen and trying stuff out is the best way to learn.

Once I get down the fried rice, I want to try Stir Fried Oats (http://www.mccanns.ie/pages/r_StirFry.html). It's not something I had ever heard of until two days ago, and it sounds good to me.

Two words: Jello cake

Make a cake (we usually use yellow or white cake mix), and use something to poke lots of holes in it. Now make jello on your stove-top and pour it into the holes so that all/most of the cake is dyed. Put it in the fridge for several hours until it's cold and firm. Frost the cake with cool whip.

It's quite delicious, and I usually request it for my birthday.
