Re: Coach Chef

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, ...

Re: Coach Chef

Seeahill, you have chosen wisely. My set is Henkels, as my dad is partial to them and they were a gift from him some quarter century ago but Wusthoff is up to snuff as well. Germany has been producing quality blades for a thousand years, the best surgical steel is still bought from Solingen factorie...

Re: Coach Chef

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 ...

Re: Coach Chef

What do you like to cook Schlegel? Well I have little kids, so the cheap answer is "quick food". Most important real answer would be be fresh food, cooked well and served promptly. Big influences would be the French chef tradition like my father was trained in (Escoffier was his bible) but I borrow...

Re: Coach Chef

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...

I have no idea if he's right or not, and don't watch his channel in part because I find his Euro/atheist bias grating, but he very specifically did not say that.

Re: Right now I'm reading

I know i posted about Wolfe before. He's fantastic. The fact that SF and fantasy are literary ghettos IMO is a major factor in making him severely underappreciated. If there is any justice he will be remembered for generations. In a time obsessed with grunge and cybertech, Wolfe poured out mythic po...

I think it makes more sense that she knew him, and reflexively supported him when this came out. Big mistake. With friends like Jussie... It’d be stupid to fake a hate crime. Just wait for the next real one. This smacks of Comet PingPong level of conspiracy theorizing. But I’ll keep the bucket of p...

He's technically correct. The first guys from Africa were indentured involuntarily and freed at the end of the term similarly to indentured whites, some of whom did not volunteer either at the time. It took a couple decades for lifetime hereditable slavery to develop.

Same here. I'm about 10 years younger than Northam and I've never seen blackface or a klan costume IRL, only from Hollywood. I'm honestly surprised.
