What would you offer on these Cast Iron frying pans?

"The problem with used cast-iron pans is you never know what's been cooked in them."

I hadn't thought about this.. this puts a whole creepy factor to it and unsolved mystery....of how did they die of poisoning...

Bento Box supplies in Vancouver?

I buy my stuff on line and have had great luck with.. http://www.allthingsforsale.com
http://casabento.com/shop/en/

I also make a lot of my own stuff just using silcon muffin liners and snap sandwich boxes..shape cutters you can get a lot cheaper just using mini cookie cutters ... andlook around with what you already have that can work. tupperware with some fun stickers...
also dont over look bento for your own lunch!

cooking chorizo

I have been chorioz obsessed lately.. I too remove it from the casing and cook it slow like ground beef. if it is too oily i toss an ice cube in to grab some of the grease and take it out again... I have boiled it in natural casing then cut into coins to use in a pasta dish

Master Chef 7/21 (SPOILERS)

Not sure about after you are selected... but during the first in person audition I was told not to bring anything...not even my knives.. nooooothing. I was taken in a room eight at a time with a demo cook top set up. There were vegetables and eggs.. They said take the carrot and Julienne it I had it finished while the other kids were looking at them for an explanation of what a julienne cut was a produced came by and asked me if I could Brunoise my carrots so I cut them itty bitty..as the other kids were being shown how to julienne. We then had to cook an egg anyway we wanted the only pan we had was a small fry pan resembling a crepe pan.. the producer came over to me and said they wanted me to poach my egg.. I managed to make a perfectly poached egg..then they showed us flash cards and we had to answer questions about food... none of the kids in my group got the answers right but were told how cute they were or how funny their answers were..When I got the answers right I was told "Wow you certainly are ahead of the pack" as if it was a bad thing... Later that day you were told that you would be called to cook a demo on camera and it just needed to be simple... SOme of the kids I met freaked out as they had flown in from georgia and tenneesse with nothing I luckily was staying with a chef and access to everything we exchanged cell phone numbers so I could help them and share if they got the call to cook . called my connections to score some white soy so I could make green heaven sliders I use to make for family dinner at the restaurant I staged at.. friend from georgia called did I have stand mixer at the house I was staying at he could use...Yes of course dont buy one.. Then I get the call " We decided to cut you You are to0 mature..blah blah" you guys know the rest of the story.. Georgia friend calls " nevermind they dont need me to cook my cooking isnt where it needs to be?" Never heard back from Tennesse kid.
