    Foodies/cooks of the forum.

    Post by JY4answer on Sun Apr 01, 2012 11:25 pm

    Someone turned the culture thread into a food thread for a while. I think food deserves its own thread. So who's a foodie or cook here?

    Having been an overseas student for 4 years, cooking has turned from a chore to survive into a daily adventure. From Chinese stir fries to casserole bakes, savory pies to chocolate cakes, even burgers and fries and pizza dough, I've tried them all. I'm roasting us a pork leg for Easter, and we've had some nice pastries.

    So who else has a passion for food?

    BTW, I don't get vegetarians, no offense. You miss out so much in life. Just today I bought a T-bone steak, chopped up some fresh garlic and rosemary, salt and pepper, and popped in on a pan with olive oil. Heaven. And if you're thinking I'm a fatty, I eat an entire celery per week.

    Oh and garlic an onions. I don't get why people hate them either. I can live without a lot of things, onions and garlic is not one of them.

    Did I mention how much I hate people wasting food? Ordering too much, cooking too much, chucking food, leaving it in the fridge for too long and chucking it are all sins to me.

    Anyway, if you have passion for food, discuss!

    I disagree. If anyone on earth has free time, its students. Besides, if you're gonna cook and eat anyway, might as well have fun.

    My diets gone down the drain, this coming off working full time, i felt like I had way more time then compared to now. I didnt need to study how to be clerk.

    Now I come home and I am doing chemistry all night, if I get the chance I pop some toast or eat an apple with some jam, but hardly cook anything more difficult that rice, eggs, canned soup or floured chicken breast. My tastebuds have died a little.

    Pasta. Its my staple food, despite my blood. Tomato, cream, herbs, flour-based, eggs-based, baked, dry, charred, in soup, in broth, in a sandwich, you name it, I've done it. The only thing I need to take off my list is making pasta from scratch.

    Apparently, hearing from my japanese friends, sushi rolls aren't supposed to have fish in them, let alone all those stuff we like to put in. Its all veg and pickles, and maybe eggs. Its their equivelent of American food = burgers, fries, pizza and hotdogs, or Chinese food = spring rolls and fried rice.

    "sushi" is the type of seasoned rice they use for many recipes. Sushi rice + Fish = what we call sushi.
    And I actually don't like fish very much so I'm doing the meat or vegetables japanese recipes instead of fish ones. Most of them are very light so I don't fall asleep working in the afternoon big grin
    I like the idea of their bento because it's made with a little bit of everything. Some bread or rice, meat or fish, vegetables, eggs and something sweet - pretty healthy. In fact I often add some very not-japanese recipes in it, but respecting the general idea

    The idea of お弁当 was to have a proper meal ready in a lunchbox to have in the classroom or office without the fuss of finding/preparing it. They try to be healthy and balanced, while also trying to be tasty. These days there are plenty of alternatives for lunch, but its always a fun idea.

    Its interesting the way cuisines are presented to other parts of the world though. Like I said, to foreigners, Americans eat burgers and pizza, chinese have spring rolls and fried rice. Its only by travelling there or meeting locals until you realise how absurd the things are while you've been believing to be authentic. Cultures are such interesting things.

    I'm tall but very thin and wimpy, so I may not look like it, but food is indeed one of my most important sources of happiness!

    But I don't really cook though.

    Sorry, wth is yoke in this case? (asks the foreign guy)

    The internet tells me it's a wooden beam used to attach 2 oxes together, or also a name of an aircraft :confused:

    What? lol!

    They were cooked so the white was solider, and could be cut up. But the yellow was cooked and a liquid. So you get like juicy eggs, so when you bite in it seeps into the muffin and adds a good flavour, at least I like it that way.

    Runny egg yolks are amazing. It works with toast, pasta, bacon/ham, salad, rice, noodles, meat, everything. When I boil eggs I always under cook them. Eggs benedict and hash brown = perfect start of the day.

    Mmmmm.......pretty much everything.

    I do most of the cooking for my family and am kind of a mad scientist in the kitchen. I do ok with standard recipes but most of my signatures are wacky. If anyone is looking for a killer Buffalo Sauce.......I have about ten variations for you. I also came up with an apple pie recipe made for intense flavor. Baklava sized portions are recommended. Cake decorating is also something I do and of course, there's a signature cake to go along with it that is actually quite healthy for a dessert. As for food appreciation I am a beer snob

    OH OH, *raises hand* Skarekrow, I love trying new buffalo sauces hit me up!

    Mostly I cook with chicken when I make meals, hot wings, chicken cordon blu, teriyaki chickens, quesadillas are some of my most popular meals when I am with family. I have tried some wacky things, coconut and brown sugar chicken but it only went over well with half my family the other half is crazy for my soya sauce and almond fried asparagus. I can't please everyone haha.

    I'm not much of a red meat fanatic, my mom raised me on shoe leather style steak, so if anything i overcook everything and I love my food extra crispy. This doesn't lend itself well to red meats haha. But I do love Churrasco! chicken hearts too! I just wish I had the stuff to do it myself.

    Alot of what I end up cooking is one shot experiments. But the few things I keep around I know how to do them well, its just a matter of finding the time and place to do them.
