Why does your average white household have no idea how to cook?

Speak for yourselves, yanks
This. In 50s America, companies specializing in pre-packaged foods (canned foods, boxed foods) printed all sorts of awful recipes involving their products on the backs of product labels. Through heavy marketing, many Americans were led to think using pre-packaged foods was not only acceptable, but the proper, modern way of feeding your family. Thus, bullshit like tuna suspended in jell-o became "food" and it stuck. Along the coasts of the U.S. we can find more proper meals due trade and interaction with other cultures, but in the middle of the country, you'll be hard pressed to find families eating food that isn't mushy casseroles made from canned crap.
>but in the middle of the country, you'll be hard pressed to find families eating food that isn't mushy casseroles made from canned crap.
Let's not forget that many of the companies that made the boxed and canned crap with the shitty recipes on the packages were based in the Midwest, which is part of why it was easy for them to gain a hold there - they were the home team.
This is actually quite true and shouldn't be ignored as it is an important factor in the discussion here.

I should also mention that it's kind of funny that all the feminists (and most people are, but I mean the outspoken ones) were excellent cooks.

Holy fuckballs did you ever just get your ass served by

You are a fucking idiot. A calorie is a calorie. Weight loss occurs when you consume fewer calories than you use in a day.

A spike in insulin is not directly causing you to gain weight. If you gain weight from this it is because the spike in insulin caused you to consumer more calories--in which case you gained weight from increasing caloric intake.

Calories are units used to describe the amount of energy you need to generate to fully digest the food you're taking in. A calorie is not a calorie. A calorie from sugar is far more easy taken in by the body (thus making you fat), a calorie from whole wheat for example is way harder for your body to digest (you poop it out) so you won't get fat from it.

There's far more to it than you described and there's also far more to it than my example but you're really quite close minded here.
They lobbied to get calories defined as "not calories."


it's scientifically proven not all calories are equal, you will not gain weight(fat) as fast eating exactly 3000 calories of protein as opposed to 3000 calories of carbohydrates.

With butter, serranos and epazote is the norm. More fancier restaurants like to add some vanilla or alcohol . The flavor is kind of nutty and it isn't overpowering , which makes it one of my favorite grub bites
That looks delicious, unfortunately I haven't tracked down any places near me that serve it. I'm fucked I guess.

aguachile is pretty one of the best things ever when done right.there's a distinct flavor in the aguachiles that I can't recall though. Maybe it is Worcestershire sauce. and the darker versions are much better than the green ones.

It's not actually surumi it's kamaboko(fish cake). Surumi is the paste that is just one of the ingredients. There are many different kinds of kamaboko meant to mimic the texture and flavor of a lot of different fish. I know that for the most part, most crab kamaboko is sold pre-cooked, but chinese ones are sold as partially cooked and require steaming before use.
Yes. I even put them in my mouth.
I like em as a snack. Dip it in cocktail sauce.

>coincidence? i think not.
Also, rye and really anything with caraway taste is disgusting.
Butterbrot is the finest invention in gastronomy.

Nutella, plum jam, herring in sour cream sauce, honey, any and all types of cold cuts, especially blood/tongue sausage with horseradish or mustard, coarse tartar with a slice of onion or two, molasses spread, quark seasoned with salt, pepper, linseed oil and chives, most any cheese, slices of smoked cured pork belly ...

Praise the rye sourdough bread. Long live Teutonia!

What were the most common meals you were fed while growing up? No shame, just tell us what you mostly ate when you were a kid. Pic related.

Grew up as a poor southerner. Ask any old southerner what their typical meal was during the week and they'll tell you these four things.

>Garden dinners. Consisted of nothing but cheap vegetables. Green beans, potatoes, okra, beans, greens, turnips, carrots, etc. Just pile it on a plate, serve cornbread on the side. Practically vegetarian.
>Sunday Dinners. Usually had about three sides with one portion of meat, usually fried chicken or beef roast or pork chops.
>Beans and cornbread.
>Kraut 'n weenies.

My family jarred their own sauerkraut so it was darn good. Cooked it up with salt, pepper, and weenies (just to have the cheapest way of adding meat to the meal possible). Usually served with potatoes, cornbread, and 'something green'.

It's the simplest thing imaginable. Just combine kraut with sliced weenies, salt and pepper it, cook it up, the end. Cheap, poor person food but I love it and feel nostalgic about it now and then. It's a southern dish that not a lot of people bring up.

My mom would make hamburgers or chicken breast and veggies for dinner most nights. Once a week she would bake a whole chicken, I loved that. 🍴

Breakfast was usually bisquick pancakes and microwave sausage, or bacon when it was on sale.
Sauerkraut is disgusting poor mans food.

t. a german
tbh there's nothing that was made really often but the ones that i remember the best were a sauce with chicken,mushrooms and pineapple with curry, served with spagetti, bolognese with spagetti,mashed potatoes with either minced meat sauce or a sauce with sausage and salmon made in the oven with boiled potatoes.
simple, delicious and pretty healthy too. obviously we had vegetables/sallads with those as well
Spinach soup with sour cream
grilled meats, roasted pork, if it came from a pig I've probably tried it + cream
Bean and pea stews with sour cream
Creatively served eggs
Wienerschnitzels with (you guessed it) sour cream
Yoghurt + burek for breakfast at least thrice a week, guaranteed
Mollusks every summer
Such is life in the Balkans
balkan beans are best beans

where you from?

Yep! A chain with only a few stores in Georgia. Really great biscuits and gravy
>Ordering McDonalds when Hardees is available.
Yeah, but I just grabbed that image at random. You can find a version of that sandwich on most street corners in NYC. Pretty much any bodega (mini grocery with sandwich counter and a flat top grill) sells them. They don't vary that much, but even the worst ones are better than a McD's breakfast sandwich. You walk in, say "sausage, egg and cheese on a roll" and you'll have one in your hands in under five minutes, usually for about $3, depending on the neighborhood.
i mix quark and joghurt with low fat 50/50 and add oats and maybe a little bit jam to make it a little bit sweeter. Magerquark is like cream cheese, tastes like nothing and has basically no fat but a lot of proteins. Makes your morning like 30-50 gram of protein depending on how much you eat.

Type the first vegetable that comes to mind.

Watching millionaire, best selling author, and recognized chef Tony Bourdain on TV last night and he;s digging into Korean Army stew like a boss.

Spam, hot dogs, ramen, etc. and he eats it like a champ, all smiles you know?

Okay pretentious sorts, start your muh palate, blah, blah, blah.

Me for one would like to try it. It looked pretty tasty.

Peasant food is always great if the person making it is competent. You honestly can only really complain it's too heavy but there's usually a light picked component served along side it too. Food basics are pretty universal.

Damn , i want some rice porridge and damuji now
>Okay pretentious sorts, start your muh palate
This is a common fallacy: that people who appreciate really high end food turn their noses up at pedestrian foods. Plenty of very pedestrian foods are as delicious as any fine food. Tony knows this because he's not a snob. A snob looks down on cheap ingredients not out of some refined sense of taste, but because he defines himself as someone who would never eat cheap food.Tony doesn't care if a dish is made from cheap ingredients as long as it's delicious.

Where you'll see Tony rail against cheap food is when it involves undermining the deliciousness out of convenience for the cook - when a dish could have been delicious but it was dumbed down and lazily cooked. That's what pisses him off. But being creative with what one has available? You won't see Bourdain shit on that.

Also, Tony appreciates context. He may hate shit like tuna casserole, but he went on record saying it was the best thing in the world when he had it on an aircraft carrier after being rescued from Lebanon when Israel attacked them. Again because he's not a snob - he knows the situation matters. Something that would be insultingly bad if served to you in a restaurant wouldn't raise an eyebrow on a military base, because those are two different worlds with very different standards.
That Koreans took food like spam and hot dogs and made them into a god tier stew is one of the reasons I'm a total k-weeb

I saw this somewhere's and suggested to my buddy (yes snob but still somehow my friend) and he said he would skip it.

I think I might make it once, though I would rather have someone else make and serve it to me.

But hey, I'm a rebel.
