Food Thread: Kitchen Chemistry
« on: April 17, 2012, 04:41:47 pm »

Fancy food, commonplace food, any food! Post food you're eating, food you want to eat, food your friends are eating, food you like, food you hated, anything! Snacks, meals, appetizers, drinks, etc. Pictures of food, descriptions of food, recipes, restaurants. Everything food-related, basically.

I'll probably mostly be posting fancy cheese and taco bell if that gives anyone ideas.

Rules:
  • Stay on-topic: This is GD. We've got tons of threads for tons of things. Tangents should frolic elsewhere if they grow too large.
  • Manage your pictures: Spoiler the big ones. And try not to just post pictures. Discussion is always nice, and picspam threads tend to quickly get off topic. I doubt this is going to turn into porn pics like the pony thread did, but you can never be too careful.
  • Warn people if you're posting something gross: I don't care how much you like that one cheese full of maggots, none of us want to see it. This also likely applies to raw meat (if bloody, sushi is fine). Use your judgment.
  • Be responsible: I feel like alcohol falls under this thread's umbrella if discussed appropriately, whether you're talking about a fine wine or a good local beer you had with your dinner. Don't do anything stupid.

So anyways I'm currently snacking on some cheese spread on water crackers. It's white cheddar and sage flavored, yum. I was afraid it'd be a mild cheddar since it's a spread, but it's nice and medium in sharpness. Water crackers are tasty as always.

I've got some more cheese in the fridge - I went on one of my occasional fancy cheese binges at Kroger and ended up being in the mood for some spready cheeses. It was a fantastic decision. I wonder how they make spready cheeses? From the ingredients on my other spread, it looks like they add cream to it somewhere. I'm not sure what I'd look up here.

I'll just mention, if you ever order pizza from anywhere with breadsticks, ask that they sprinkle some of the breadstick seasoning on top of your pizza. It's probably a mix of parmesan, oregano, and garlic, all three of which are awesome.

For, in order that men should resist injustice, something more is necessary than that they should think injustice unpleasant. They must think injustice absurd; above all, they must think it startling. They must retain the violence of a virgin astonishment. When the pessimist looks at any infamy, it is to him, after all, only a repetition of the infamy of existence. But the optimist sees injustice as something discordant and unexpected, and it stings him into action.

Hot dogs hot dogs hot dogs hot dogs hot dogs hot dogs hot dogs.

I seriously think hot dogs and sausage are like my two favorite foods. If that was all I could eat that's all I'd eat. I doubly love sonic foot long hot dogs and chedderwurst sausage.

Pasta. I live by it, and chances are I'll die by it. So good. With butter, with soy sauce, with actual marinara. Alfredo, pesto, olive oil, salad dressing....

God bless the carbs. I think pasta is the biggest reason I've been living a meat-lite lifestyle for close to 10 years now.

Sun Chips has a new flavor lately, parmesan & herb. It's quite good and not nearly as strong as the other alternate flavors, I think it might be my new favorite.

Is there anything you do that isn't surrounded by innuendo?

I could say I'm doing it on purpose but the truth is a lot of my preferences and favorites just ended up that way. It's not MY fault I like hot sticky shafts of meat.

Especially when they're that kind of sausage with cheese and peppers inside, so when you bite down it squirts a bunch of melted cheese into your mouth.

Jesus guys, we aren't even off the first PAGE yet! Part of the reason I love this forum.

Anyhow, I'm a big fan of Burmese food and Ethiopian. Also Dim Sum, a kind of authentic chinese.

The Burmese place I went to was in northern Virginia and it was absolutely amazing. It's like a cross between Thai and Indian, with a hint of Vietnamese. Brilliant salads, stews, curries, and all sorts of dishes. They had such a varied menu that I can't begin to list it all, but it was the one place I could go to where I literally could not find a thing I didn't like. (Except their idea of a dessert. It was like a sundae with rice noodles and pepto bismol. I think they didn't understand it was supposed to be an after dinner treat) I've only found that one place, but if you can find something similar I can only hope that it is as good. And if you live in Northern Virginia and like ethnic food, for the love of god go there.

Ethiopian is another Indian inspired cuisine, in fact when I treated some Indian friends to it they commented on a good deal of the similarities. Must be due to the trade routes way back when. Anyhow, it's a pleasure for all the senses, and traditionally comes on a communal plate with a type of bread that's similar to a sourdough pancake instead of utensils. You pick up the food (traditionally mostly vegetables, great for vegitarians) with the bread and eat it. Seeing as how all the food on the platter is on another large piece of the bread, you get to eat that as well when you're done. At the end of it all they have a special kind of coffee, infused with spices, which is absolutely wonderful. Just don't drink too much! It's incredibly strong and you will be up all night. Beware, because you eat with your hands they will smell wonderful until you wash them a few times. People will think you're weird for smelling your fingers.

I'm a big fan of spicy, cultural food. I'll save the rest I love for another time.

Sadly, when I mention Ethiopian food the most common response is "What food?" They DID have a large prosperous empire at one point, and I suppose that's where this delicious cuisine came from.

In other news. Vietnamese! I recently discovered an Asian market near my house, from which I buy all sorts of pre-made things. My newest love is a ramen type soup, but instead of ramen it's pho! Pho is probably the least offensive food there is. It can be tasty (in my eyes) with liberal application of hot peppers and cilantro, however without doctoring it's usually just a giant, Asian, chicken noodle soup.

I discovered Pho about 3 years ago. Changed my freakin' life. When it is royally cold and shitty outside, a bowl of Pho from a good Vietnamese place will warm you up and keep you warm for hours. In the dictionary, under wholesome, it should have a picture of a bowl of Pho. But in addition to being wholesome, it's also delicious. I like Beef Pho the best, because all the restaurants around here (we have a Little Vietnam here in town) cut it razor thin and toss it into the bowl just before they serve it. It cooks the beef to a nice mid-rare right there in the bowl.

I am eating salad with home-made garlic bread. Delicious and reasonably healthy (I don't use dressing on my salad).
