McGriddles are the best.

Sweet, salty, meaty, just way too expensive for what it is.
How much expensive?
This was the only thing I was looking forward to and it's not even an option

Hey asschee/ck/s, how important is local food to you guys? Not necessarily organic, but local (within a 30 mile radius vicinity).

Thinking of making an app to connect people with local food and growers, what would you like to see in such a thing?
4 replies omitted. Click here to view.
I wouldn't use it, but it sounds like a good idea
I try to buy local when I can. I buy local milk and eggs and bread, because they're not much more expensive than the regular stuff, but I don't think I could justify buying local meat and veg, especially when I mostly eat frozen foods due to my schedule.
'The Good Food Club'

They aren't skilled with names. Handiest bit about them is the baskets- put your name in the box and a certain amount of bucks and every month they assemble a hamper with a bunch of fresh local veggies and fruit. They also change whats in them every month and they use seasonal vegetables, so you get a fun variety.
For me it's less about it being local and more about it being fresh. If I have the option of fresh food over an alternative, I'll usually pay the extra dollar or two for fresh ingredients. But I rarely ever go looking for it. One of the problem with local growers is that they tend to have very limited variety. Most will only specialize in a handful of crops and a little bit of livestock. So rather than being connected to local farmers, it'd be better as a consumer to have access to something that consolidates all of their food, e.g. a farmer's market.
yeah, living ina city, local means fucking as snothing. theres a ton fo food places locally, but only some of em are good. plus theyre all different twists.

if anything, id like local + genre + rating
a big list of em, nothing fancy.
if something rings a bell or I'm reminded of something tasty, id be down

Why are so many American sushi restaurants run by Koreans?
31 replies and 2 images omitted. Click here to view.
Because Americans can't tell the difference, their sushi is totally Americanised that even a downie could make it and they wouldn't know!

Japanese feel embarrassed at corrupting their craft to suit the USA!

Now you know!
Because they're the ones behind the westernized rolls that many Americans demand. You know the ones, with at least four different center fillings, avocado or fish layered outside, topped with spicy mayo or some other sauce.

That's 'gimbap' in a nutshell.
>also Japanese chefs use rice grown in california

You'd be surprised to know that they do this in Japan too.
Northern California is great for growing rice.
Yes . . .Top Japanese chefs who train for 8 years minimum , stake their reputation on using the finest and freshest ingredients, they ignore their own produce and import American Long-grain rice from 5 and a half thousand miles away???
Should I have included a smiley face with this? . . .or do people understand the irony?

It's my birthday today so I thought I'd make myself pancakes instead of eating weetbix. Only problem is that they never really seem worth the time and effort.

What nice things do you have for breakfast?
wtf its three ingredients and frying in a pan not very hard or long

>unlike my wong

Poached eggs, make a sauce, bake some biscuits/scones, bake bacon.
Relative to making and washing a bowl of cereal

If that's the way you're approaching it, you'll have a pretty lackluster birthday.
Why not make a Dutch baby? It's still technically a pancake, but it's a little more special and you can just mix it and stick it in the oven.

Should I even bother with seafood if I live in the American Midwest?
6 replies omitted. Click here to view.
Because they are locally caught still, just from an area I can't access frequently.

I don't understand. I should bother with sushi but not regular fish? Or vice versa?
It's ALL flash frozen at sea whether you buy it on the coast or in Kansas

fucking this, whenever customers have the waitstaff come back and ask if shit is fresh or frozen it's like.... first of all, you don't understand, and second of all where the fuck did you think we were going to get wild chilean sea bass in california?
If you like store-bought salmon, and the price doesn't put you off, eat it up to once or twice a week...studies almost all point to its significant nutritional benefits. There are other types of fish that work too, but the US doesn't enforce consumer fraud protections in the seafood industry, so the majority of fish you buy, unless it's right of the dock, are not what they say they are (species, country of origin, farmed/ocean, fresh/frozen, etc. are all often wrong). Salmon is so distinct that it's rarely mislabeled. I'm sure some high-end Boston seafood restaurants are exceptions, and know their suppliers, but as a rule of thumb, if you're in the US, most seafood is being sold fraudulently.

Other than that, I'd just eat fish you catch locally.

Excuses are easier than manning up and taking control of your own life.

then make shit with less sauce and add your own to your dish

I'd say that you should just move out but I doubt you're the independent type
>no one has told OP to man up and move out

Ffs this isn't r9k. Grow the fuck up
have them teach you a meal then, and be there to watch it. open them up to the idea that your cooking isn't so bad if you do their kind of meals.

then of course open up.

I'm 24 and still working out how to get my parents ot let me cook for them.
you need a pressure cooker. it cooks things fast.

I want to invest in a french press as a cheaper/ better quality daily coffee.
I hear a course grind is best but I am having trouble locating a good brand of coffee that meets this standard. Im assuming standard drip coffee is no good as is an espresso grind. Whats out there
7 replies omitted. Click here to view.
How do you feel about coffee sludge, OP? (The bit of thick coffee that can be found at the bottom of a cup of french press.) I like it.

The cheaper/shittier the grinder you use, more sludge you're gonna get.

If the idea of sludge makes you gag and you don't plan on investing in a good grinder, then don't go the french press route.
In what way do you like it? It is a useless by product unless you enjoy the tactile experience of sludge.
I like the thickness of it.
Course grind will require less clean up, but honestly any good quality coffee will taste just fine with it.
moka pot is better

Hey /ck/,

I don't come here often. /fit/, /b/, and /o/ lurker, so I hope I'm not violating any rules by posting this, but my step father is a hunter and it's currently duck season in Maine. Needless to say, I've got a decent amount of duck meat, and I plan on making dinner on Sunday. Does anyone have any relatively easy recipes for duck? I don't mind spending a good amount of time cooking, and am relatively experienced (worked in Kitchens for the past 5 years). Only have basic seasonings/utensils, however, but will go grocery shopping before. So, what have you got for me? Thank you.

Japanese liquor has always been a favorite of mine. I've always been partial to mizuwari. Japanese bars/bartending have always been super interesting to me.

I'd love to try more Japanese whiskey but for now I just settle for delicious sweet potato shochu and fried chili lotus root. So delicious
Is Japan even a real place?

I'm currently stuck with only a microwave and I'm trying to stay away from tv dinner-tier shit.

I have red onion, green pepper, black beans and half an avocado at the moment. I'm going to the store to maybe get some precooked meat and maybe microwavable rice.

Any suggestions to not make it a flavorless mix of raw veggies?
1 reply omitted. Click here to view.
just chop it up small and barely cook it so that it doesn't become inedible mush, and make a decent sauce for it

at least get a hot plate bro
Staying at an AirBnB tonight, no point in buying it.

Yesterday I pretty much made pic related but with less veggies and only used tabasco sauce.
If you have a kettle get instant mashed potatoes.
Nope, just a microwave, a bowl, a counter to cut on and a small kitchen knife.
