Signs that someone is a GOOD cook

And, so what? I let my cooking talk for me. I was commenting on the false metric that talking equates with doing. Oh the sound and fury... Oh well.

Said elsewhere: a good cook is someone OTHERS spend time discussing.

Have not heard back from OP, so maybe it wasn't safe?

Signs that someone is a GOOD cook

A good cook knows ingredients, technique, and how to use both. He goes to the store, sees what is available, then decides on what to make (sorry, but following recipes is not the sign of a cook).

In reading this thread, I am surprised to see comments that a good cook talks a lot about his cooking. NO! If you are a good cook, others talk a lot about your cooking.

This entire thread has been about "other than food." BC had never heard of what I sought. You have made my point. :~)

How many people really use shallots? I generally don't.

Maybe per pound, but you use less shallot than onion, so it works to be about the same per serving.

As I was taught: you can make hollandaise with axle grease if you want, but it won't taste the same. Check the flavors.

I make a cream goose soup that wouldn't work with onions.

Nah, the block captain is a moron. And the tourist groups are there usually in the daytime, and good that they are looking out for the rich history of the area.

There was a time when NYC was the center of the world, but that time has passed. Nonetheless, lower Manhattan has plenty of history that should be celebrated, not suppressed by ignoramuses.

Think about the people who buy a house by an airport, then complain about noise. Interlopers in the Village want the cache with no understanding of its basis.

Once the hipsters get a little older, their narcissism transforms. The Village always was a place that attracted rebellious types; and the newer interlopers only know that there is a cache to the place that they fail to understand. Hipsters will go to bars in other neighborhoods. The point is that NYC has changed by an influx of people who have no appreciation of what made NY into NY. The place is increasingly homogenized.

BTW, I attended PS 3 a long time ago when it was called Sutherland!

It is that they don't care about the historic significance. They move into an area for cache without any appreciation for the source of the cache. I recently was looking for one of the historic buildings nearby, there was a block party of some kind, and the captain of the block association had never even heard of any of the historic sites on her own block.

Chumley's hails from an era long before there were any beatniks. But the Village has long been a very special area, along with Chelsea, for politics, arts, literature. Chumley's was the "Communist speakeasy" because so many left wing artists and writers hung out there.

More fuel for the fire: Dinner @ Antoine's, Sat., 12/27

Lived down there some time ago and discovered that regulars get quite a different experience from tourists. It was eye- opening to go as a guest of one of the regulars, a completely different restaurant. I haven't returned in some time.

Is "bone broth" the new marketing term for stock?

A continuous stock pot is an old tradition. You can make broth with or without bones for slightly differing consistencies.

That's NYC! Mostly, people stayed indoors, and the whole thing was unmarked because it started out as a speakeasy, complete with secret tunnels. It is a historic property, and quite unobtrusive. The village has changed, and it is full of hipsters now. Hipster ruin every thing.

Trichinosis used to be a big problem, and it is a truly terrible disease. But commercially available "fresh" pork has been frozen for a long time before you get it, so the worms are dead if any there at all. If you obtain meat from a hunter, however, it must be well done.

Canned Eel?

Canned is fine, but treat it as you would canned sardines. I like the eel filets on a piece of French breas.

You can’t detox your body. It’s a myth. So how do you get healthy?

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/foodanddri...

There is something seriously wrong with people who believe this junk, as in believing in "super foods." At least, in the EU, they have begun to recognize that such people may need protection.

There is a beginning recognition that a mental illness, called Orthorexia Nervosa," will be included as a new diagnosis. It is characterized by unfounded preoccupation with "healthy eating" and exercise.

Sure worked out badly for Julia!

That seems expensive for that kind of course, but it is what you seem to want, namely, teaching techniques.

You're welcome. Glad to be helpful.

That is the problem of quantity over quality. Never too much of a good thing that is really good.

If you wear a hair shirt, it feels so good when you take it off!

We are dealing with folks who have a hollow psychological core. They are always worried that they aren't as on top of their world as they would like to think, as much in control as they need to be, so they engage in nothing more than latter-day magic. Self deprecation makes them feel, also, they aren't impermissibly exceeding limits and boundaries they fail to understand in the first place: nothing more than the old fear of offending the gods through hubris.
