That's how Waffle House already does them. If you said 'scattered', they would ask what the hell you mean.

/ck/, do you work in the business? Are you Back of the House or the Front of the House? Any horror stories you'd like to share from the trenches?

Good luck man. I hate cooking for any groups larger than 4.
FOH checking in: as far as I'm concerned the BOH guys like dish are doing God's work.

Yes, a lot of restaurant work, especially BOH is pretty thankless. I used to work for a wannabe celebrity chef and he was just douchcanoe. I hated my time with him.

Do people here know/like Other Half Brewery in NYC? I managed to grab some of their hard-to-get Triple IPA at their can release this morning.
Share thoughts and pictures of the beer!

But yeah i have heard about them, makes some quite out there beer when it comes what they put into them sometimes!

Despite being a bunch of malignant assholes to the state of Indiana, 3 Floyds does have their shit together. Their pear sour was my favorite beer of last year.

A reasonably priced alternative available locally is Weld, another pear sour from Tin Man out of Evansville.

Haha I worked at Outback off-and-on for 8 years. When I started in '06 the quality was alright. After the housing market shit everything went to shit. Restuarants were closing down a lot and our menu changed. Portion sizes decreased to fit with affordable items for poor people.
Labor had to go down meaning our morning prep was almost non-existent. We had to do our prepping online whilst cooking entrees. Only ever worked there part-time as a side job. Glad I got the fuck outta there.
It's really hit or miss. If you have a good crew/kitchen manager/expo that won't let shit food leave then you can get a great dish. More times then not we had penny-pincher proprietor that only cared about getting food out fast for quick table turnaround.

I'm not 100% sure but this covers most of the nutrients the body needs and would probably cost like $10 a week.
Oatmeal saved me when I was poor. Stuck to you all day.
Well, let's see.
4lb bag of dry mixed pinto/kidney beans costs $2.79 at Save-A-Lot.
Provides 64 servings of beans.
Under 5¢ per serving.

20lb bags of rice cost $6.99 just about everyfuckingwhere.
Cooks up into 100 servings.
Under 7¢ per serving of rice.

Eggs are $1/dz.
Provides 12 servings.
Under 9¢ per serving.

please go to /fit/, it is a detriment to ask for health advice here

How do you eat 40-60% of your calories in that bottom tier though? Vegetables don't tend to have that many calories.
Calories aren't half as important as nutrition. Focus on getting as much nutrition as you can, and the calories will matter less and less.
i don't know how to exercise and every guide i look up has different information from the last

• 80% of antibiotics sold in the US are used in animal agriculture
• Animal agriculture is responsible for 18% of the world’s greenhouse gas emissions ( more than the combined exhaust from transportation [cars, planes, train ect, which make up a combined 13%])
• Livestock and their byproducts account for more than 32,000 million tonnes of CO2 per year- that’s half of the WORLD’S greenhouse gas emissions
• Livestock covers 45% of the Earth’s total land (a cause in rainforest depletion). As the population grows, we literally won’t have room for cows
• Methane (yes, from cow farts), is more destructive than CO2 on a 20year time frame
• Methane has a global warming potential 86x that of CO2 on a 20 year frame
• Even without fossil fuels, we will exceed over 565 gigatonnes of CO2 emissions by 2030, all by raising animals for slaughter
• We are currently growing enough food to feed 10 billion people (current population is 7.something billion[fuck u, use google])
• Growing crops for livestock takes 56% of the US water consumption
• 2,500 gallons of water is need to produce 1 pound of beef. And they ask us to take shorter showers? Fuck you
• 5% of US water is for private homes; 55% is for animal agriculture
• Don’t be a dick, go vegan. Or vegetarian or something.
Worldwide, cows drink 45 billion gallons of water and eat 135 pounds of grain each DAY! We have a high enough food yield to feed the whole planet, but we don’t, so that we can have fat fucking cows. We have starving people all over the world, THE GRAINS THAT WE FEED TO LIVESTOCK SHOULD BE FED TO PEOPLE INSTEAD. The meat/dairy industries are in close relations with pharmaceutical and chemical companies (hormone and antibiotic use). They are the one percent as well .

source on that statistic pls, cause I call bullshit
quit making shit up and try to debate this intellectually
statistics are just a 'good guess' at what is really going on, so even if you do have solid testing, you will never be 100% on anything of that scale

that said, biggest debate right now with climate change is not if its happening or not, but how much of it is contributed by humans.
with such a hot topic politically right now, I would take any studies, on both sides, with a grain of salt. use your head, don't just jump on anything that you read that supports only your views
>we shouldn't care about causing more suffering since there would be some suffering anyway
All of us would probably fit into Wales too, that doesn't mean that Wales could sustain billions of people.
>no more whites bitching about food that isn't tendies and ranch
Unsurprisingly, I'm ok with this
We're nothing to it but it is everything to us.
We can (and are currently rushing towards) fuck the moist layer on the surface of the earth so bad that we can't have a nice, comfy civilization any more.

>multi Michelin star-winning chef
Restaurants win Michelin Stars, not chefs.
well, it's discretionary

Someone doesn't know what causes Michelin stars to be awarded.

The stars are truly award to the chef. The examination the establish undergos, all surrounds the chef. The ability for the inspectors to feel the presence of the chef in the establishment, and the ability for the chef to translate themselves to a plate. It is more than good food, it is an award for those who show a level of mastery in culinary as a whole art form.

Though considered one of the riskiest awards that can happen to an establishment (as it becomes a defensive position for the restraunt, considering that loosing a star can destroy the business) it is also an award that is really for the chef, and their ability to lead their way. Delicious food is only part of it.

Feel whatever way you'd like, as many consider the Michelin guide as absurd (reasonably so). But it does prove that the chef is one of excellence.

What are the secrets of making the perfect Irish Coffee?
13 replies omitted. Click here to view.

Traditionally all hot drinks took cream on the bottom because cheap porcelain would be destroyed by the coffee or tea

Irish coffee has traditionally always been done in glass though, as pictured.
> do not waste top-shelf whiskey on it, VAT 69 does just fine
> use real cream, the artificial stuff clumps something fierce
> you need more whiskey and more brown sugar than you think
> the stronger the coffee, the better
Dis nigga right here.

OP use Jameson or some other shit-tier OIrish whiskey, I hate Jameson, but it's use in coffee is fine.

You need to preheat your whiskey with a teaspoon of brown sugar, idealy dissolving the sugar into the whiskey.
I mean they mix the cream with sugar so its density is greater than that of the coffee and the cream sinks to the bottom.
