Re: China is the Enemy

Wow, the NBA player take on china continues to dazzle. I never thought our sportsball players would piss away their credibility quite this fast. Next time Lebron protests a cop killing somebody send him $5 cause that appears to be his per capita rate to shut up about injustice.

Re: China is the Enemy

My wife and I dicussed China the other day. I was a bit surprised to see I did not have to spend any effort persuading her; she had already decided we will not use any app the Chinese govt touches and to avoid electronic devices made in china as much as possible. Her employer is very security consci...

Re: China is the Enemy

I'm starting to think punishing tariffs that cause our buying to shift to other than China might be worth the pain. China is not interested in joining the community of nations. It is interested in following the rules when it disadvantages you and breaking the rules when it advantages them.

It does illustrate one of the many ways in which electronic shit can never truly replace books. Nobody is going to leave little Dathan grandma's Chrome bookmarks in the will.

They are useful, we do use the Milk Street Kitchen website (accessible with a magazine subscription) as it's about the only magazine I've seen that consistently has multiple recipes that look interesting every issue.

Jacques Pepin has tons of great videos on YouTube for freeeeeeeee.
Yes, and he's very watchable. Those months I was pouring dinner into a tube in my stomach I would watch him every day on PBS and imagine eating food again one day.
But I still like to have books.

Re: Cookbooks

New Complete Techniques? You would not go wrong with that either, what i have is Essential Pepin. 700 recipes plus a DVD of demonstrated techniques. I will probably buy the other too, though i expect some duplication, just because they have been out long enough to be available quite cheaply now.

My claim to fame is I used to play capoeira in the park with Tulsi. I've actually kicked her ass several times.
I'll state with no shame that as a karateka, I respect the work ethic of anyone who really practices Capoeira. That shit is a workout.

Jaques Pepin has an encyclopedic book of techniques/dishes you might want to check out, as well multiple straight cookbooks. I very much like his approach to food.

Re: When USA gets you down...

Don't forget the movement to ban kitchen knives with points as well. Evildoers will just give up faced with the task of finding a file or a flat patch of concrete, or sandpaper. That's why there are no weapons in prisons.

I don't see trump agreeing to send any transcript this fast unless it's not going to help the Dems. One thing you have to admit is he usually has no problem just denying anything no matter what anyone else says.

Schlegal, you're absolutely right. My new knives arrived the other day. What a pleasure to dice onions, chop carrots etc. I used to avoid cooking dinners that involved a lot of knife skills. Now I'm looking for recipes that require a knife work. As a guy who worked with subpar knives all his life, ...

Funny you should mention Austro-Hungarians... I used to cook alongside a Hapsburg. The son of one of the ex patriate arch dukes. We went to college together and worked part-time in the same kitchen. That reminds me, I love a good goulash but have not made one in a while. When my dad was younger and ...

Chef Shlegal, What knives do I need for kitchen work. And how do I keep them sharp ? Well, actually... I do have opinions on this topic, if you really want to know. Better knife skills and a quality set of knives is probably the first and most fundamental thing I'd recommend to the home cook to mak...
