Deboning a turkey from the breasts or the back?

I've personally done it from both sides. I just can't make up my kind if I would rather the breasts be on opposite sides (from the breast bone) or next to each other (from the backbone). If that makes sense.

Deboning a turkey from the breasts or the back?

I'm defining a 10lb bird, stuffing it full of homemade boudin, rolling it up and smoking it for Thursday. My only issue is I can't make up my mind on whether I should debone it starting from along the breast bone or from the back bone. Your thoughts would be helpful in making my decision. Thanks in advance.

Where to Go When You Can't Get Into State Bird Provisions

Incanto is one of my favorites in San Fran. It's not a fufu restaurant where you'll find foams and stuff but just damn good italian inspired food. It's not crazy expensive for the city either.

Modernist Cuisine's Individual Microwave Yellow Cakes

@nikkib99 this recipe uses the exact same ingredients as any other cake would. if you're that worried about the intake of fat maybe you shouldn't even be looking at a recipe for cake. what this recipe does is show the unique way of cooking a cake. you clearly don't have a grasp of various cooking techniques if you would claim this is frying or confit (even if it was a "joke").

What to do with fenugreek seeds?

I was taking a leisurely stroll through an Asian market and stumbled upon a bag of fenugreek seeds. Intrigued, I bought said bag without any intent on what I would do with them. That was 3 months ago and bag o'fenugreek still sits unopened in my spice cabinet. I'm asking you, oh wise Chowhound contributors, to set me in the right direction on how to use up these seeds. I know they're used primarily with other spices in Indian cooking but was looking for a way to highlight the fenugreek seeds and display their taste so that I can better understand the spice. Thanks in advance!

Drinking Ale-8-One with Andy Sturdevant

You'll only ever hear Kentuckians call it "Ale 8." It's very rare for us to add the "one."

Can Cheeto Fried Chicken Redeem Stoner Food?

Did you post this after my review of Next on Facebook for peanut butter, pickled jalapeno and saltine crackers? Haha

Late-Night Asian Noodles

I've made ramen in my dorm room by running water through my coffee maker to heat it up. My microwave was acting up and not the most efficient so it wasn't an option. I like to use sambal in this instead of sriracha and a little rice wine vinegar is an easy substitute for the lime.

NY CHOW Report: French Onion Soup Dumplings at the Stanton Social

Make them like any other soup dumpling. Whether the colagen from the homemade beef stock does it or the addition of gelatin the french onion soup will set up into a solid when cooled down. Just cut it into squares after pouring it into pan to cool and then wrap it up in the dumpling wrapper making sure that it's properly sealed. Then fry, bake with cheese and skewer with crouton as directed in the video. Ta-dah!

Best Restaurant in the State of Kentucky....

No one has mentioned any restaurants in far west Kentucky. (I'm sorry but the state does go a couple hours west of WKU and Owensboro.) Downtown Paducah has some great restaurants. Kirchoff's is a great bakery down an old brick side road. Cynthia's Ristorante is a great restaurant too. I've had many more great meals at Cynthia's than I ever have at places like Proof On Main, Jack Fry's and the AAA 4 Diamond English Grill. If you ever find yourself in Paducah, stop by Cynthia's. You won't regret it. One of my favorite Thai restaurants that I've ever been to is also in Paducah. Jasmine Thai and Sushi is great! I have had business friends from across the country come to town and they always want to eat at Jasmine because they claim it's the best Thai food around.

The Supertaster Verdict on Wendy's Hot 'N Juicy Cheeseburger

I'm with jeanmarieok. I don't like their new burgers. I'm a big mustard fan and get irritated that I have to specifically ask for it on there and I can't stand the new pickles. They're more sweet. The late Wendy's burger was the only burger I would ever eat at the major fast food joints. Now I won't be eating any fast food burgers.

Food Ideas to Eat "On The Run"

Thanks everyone for all of the suggestions. I ended up making a korean marinated pork tenderloin. Quick pickled some red onions and jalapeno's to use as a topping for asian pork sliders. I put them on those little Hawaiian sweet rolls. They ended up being pretty good and figured they'd be easy to assemble one here and there when they have a few minutes between patients. I also made a cold (room temperature) asain pasta salad with soba noodles, red and yellow bell peppers, and snap peas. For dessert they got a fruit salad with a little bit of sweetened marscapone that I thinned out with some lightly whipped cream. Keep up with the suggestions though. I'll use them in the future!

Food Ideas to Eat "On The Run"

There is a local free clinic in my area that asks volunteers to provide dinner for the doctors, nurses, and other volunteers. I'm a pretty good cook--even went to culinary school but I can't seem to come up with any ideas for the meal. They only have a few minutes here and there to grab a bite in between seeing patients so it needs to be something they can just grab and go. I was thinking something ethnic since most people who volunteer cop and buy like subway sandwiches and pizza. I would be grateful for all of your suggestions.

How the heck do I choose new pots and pans??

I don't remember which issue but it was in one of the Cooks Illustrated mags within the last 2 years.

How the heck do I choose new pots and pans??

Go with Tramontina! They were chosen by America's Test Kitchen (the Consumer Reports of all things food) to be the best pans. They cooked better than All-Clad and are only a fraction of the price. They have many different pieces that you can buy "a la carte" or have sets. But definitely go with Tramontina! I've been a professional chef for 12 years and they're the pans that I have at home.

Perfect Cheeseburger

Fat does add flavor to meat. It adds a different flavor than lean meat does. They are both flavors, they're just different flavors. Ass far as the juice coming from blood and lymph... simply, no. First off, you should be buying meat from credible butchers who grind it on spot anyway but commercial butchers are so strictly regulated by the USDA that there is no blood or lymph in ground beef.

Cherry Power Bar

I doubled the recipe and instead of using 1 1/2 cups if cherries, I used 1/2 cup each of dried cherries, cranberries, and blueberries. I used a nonstick spray instead of the butter and only used 3 Tbsp. of brown sugar instead of 6. These are my new breakfast staple to go with my smoothie.
