Free range chicken - green area in the breast!

Our farmers will eventually find a way to kill us all. And then will ship it all around the world

BEST real life food related joke of the day!!

Add the chicken to the coffee first. Then add the mustard and blend. Sheesh! Everyone knows that.

Tasting better the next day.

biriani requires slow cooking - it tastes great after 4 hours of "dhum". However, it tastes even better the next day.

What "typical American Foods" would you serve to foreigners?

there's a reason it rhymes with sh1te

Earthquake

Actually, I would be surprised if they did carry insurance specifically for earthquakes. I'd figure that any damage to a winery would be minimal and the event so infrequent as to make the insurance not worth its cost.

Corn on the cob TOO sweet!

If it's really fresh it will be very sweet. Maybe you're used to corn that isn't all that fresh.

I like it - your mileage may vary. So it's my dirty little secret. It runs in the family - isn't that what you requested?

Muscles!!

Jeanne Claude van Damme is known as the "Muscles from Brussels" precisely because Muscles and Mussels are pronounced alike.

Naturally it has to be from OK/TX with that great white peppery sausage gravy.

Are there wall ovens that don't blast kitchen with hot air?

I think I have the same Kitchenaid KEBS279BSS. Right now it is NOT blasting the kitchen with hot air as it died after my wife ran the self clean cycle. When it WAS working we did not notice much heat coming into the kitchen.

Waterless cookware

I can cook waterless AND cookwareless. Just bung the stuff on a plate and nuke it in the microwave

Are there brandies/cognacs/armagnacs as good as French ones made elsewhere?

Kelt Tour du Monde is pretty good - we get it here for $40. But for some of the other ones we've mentioned here, you need to hit a more cosmopolitan liquor store - in or out of NH

London dining help sought, please.

Geales - bland? We are talking traditional fish and chips here. And that's why you have salt, vinegar and pepper on the table. Overpriced? Really?

Your Favorite Meat or Protein?

Yes it's mostly cartilage and needs good technique to stay tender. Just a little meat.

Your Favorite Meat or Protein?

Raku in Las Vegas does pigs ears for $3 - nice light and a hint of bacon. They also do skewers of kobe beef liver for $4 and I think that is outstanding.

Local mid-high end restaurant with chef actually there?

Raku IS a trip and really very reasonably priced.

In addition to Geales which I mentioned earlier and which also has an ambience that your aunt might like, there is also Sweetings on Queen Victoria Street right by the Monument. Sweetings is ONLY open for lunch and only Monday to Friday. The front area is arranged as a set of mini-bars accommodating 5 to 6 people around a server. This area is likely to be dominated by city types. In the back there is an area with regular sit down tables that may be more to your taste. Sweetings also does great fish and chips along with just about everything else fishy that you might like - e.g. oysters, whitebait, smoked haddock - all highly recommended by me and my wife.

Pakistani Sweets - What are they called?

Nice stuff but they need to think of another name for barfi - just not likely to catch on in the West otherwise

Veggo - Sad news

It's funny how you recognize the names of posters. Veggo always seemed cheerful and had something worthwhile to say.
