Menu change is happening at the restaurant.

One of the new items is a ham and gruyere sandwich on a baguette. The bread is toasted and then we spread herb mustard on one side and onion jam on the other.
It comes with fries and pickled veggies.

The mustard is one part whole grain, one part dijon, and one part parsley by weight

The second item change is this chocolate pudding. It comes with a vanilla chantilly garnished with cocoa nibs and sea salt.


Oh dang that looks good

I'm not personally a fan of powdered soups but if it is what you have then use it.
I kinda don't like that stuff cause I got sick on MREs as a kid.

Stock is very simple.

For the most basic of veg stocks, all you need are onions, carrots, celery, garlic, and some herbs if you are feeling posh.
Stocks like most things state with your base of onions, carrots, and celery. The ratio that most cooks use for this is 2:1:1. So two part onion, one part carrot, and one part celery.

When I am making my veg stock I like to roast the veg a bit in the oven to bring out a bit more flavor and depth but that is optional. I also leave the skins on my onions as all it does is impart color and not flavor.

For the actual making of the stock get the biggest deepest pot you got and toss in the veg and cover with water. A part I see skipped over is that you want to use low heat. This will keep sediments and other unwanted particles from being mixed into it.
I like to let mine go for about four hours. Then you want to get a fine mesh strainer and strain all the liquid gold out of the pot.

For the chicken stock, I take chicken backs and paint them with tomato paste. Roast them with half the veg and then add it to a pot and do the same but this time I let it go for about 8 hours.

I could go on about demi but I am scared I am already tossing too much.

Alright, so one of the best sandwiches I've had was at 401 Deli in Exeter, RI. Had a "Real" Italian sandwich with Prosciutto, Genoa Salami, Hot Capicola, Banana Peppers, Onion, Lettuce, Tomatoes and Seasoned Oil and Vinegar. Fucking 10/10 and was toasted to perfection. Will go there again.

Went to a few of the tourist spots that were mostly dead because it wasn't summer. Iggy's Doughboys & Chowder House had really good fucking Fish and Chips. Was a good Fried Cod. Doughboys are fried dough covered in sugar, so naturally delicious.

You just want something comfy to lay on/cuddle while you eat sugary treats.

I only know how to make beignets, doughnuts, scones, churros, and castagnole. I fear doughboys would be too hard for me to make.

but the long lanky shape, the darker colours and the gritty texture reminds me a bit of potpourri food.

There is no parm on these.

I do not understand what you mean by lanky. These are all cut to a standardized size, the difference in lengths comes from the potatoes themselves.

The color is due to our double-blanching method,

I assume the reason you are calling them gritty is due to the salt crystals. We use a large kosher salt for seasoning them, I can assure you that they are not gritty.

They do smell great.

Weight it down overnight and then cut it into tots and fry.

If both sound good how about reducing the au juis until about a quarter is left, then mixing it with the ketchup, some cayenne, pepper, onion powder and garlic powder, and using that to dip.

Was good. Wasn't crispy though, you're right. Not using stale bread more than likely. Custard was decent though.

The garnish added nothing to the dish, you're right. It was simply to add color to the plate.

Stock is one of the most important building blocks of good food.

Well, a pack of six breasts costs about as much as a whole bird which gives two breasts, two thighs, and two legs. You just need to know how to break it down and I would love to show you how to do that and what to do with scraps.

Silly girl.



I feel like there's a few big obstacles to getting people cooking, and two of those are:
- fear of failure
- (imagined or real) initial costs

The cubes are not on the same level as real stock. But, you can't beat the ease and convenience of use, and you can't beat the price, and in a place where using real stock would be better, they're still superior to just using nothing. I have this idea that the hardest bit is getting people to cook at all, and once they are comfortable with doing something at all only then will they naturally develop from there, and recommending using a little cheat like the cubes could bootstrap that. I feel they're the perfect accompaniment for some chill low stakes home cooking, especially for beginners, with how much bang-for-the-buck they bring. They're never going to be amazing, but they're always going to be pretty decent, and you can't really fail at picking them wrong because even the storiest of the store brands will be "yeah sure that's okay enough".

Which isn't to say that I don't just use them myself when I can't be bothered otherwise. They're just conveniently packaged flavour ready to toss in. And since lately I've been doing less "real cooking" and more "tossing things together in a deep pan", they do appear in play relatively often.


File: 1667596801721.jpg (126.46 KB, 1280x1215, 256:243, fada53e45e85243e990cdf44d5….jpg) ImgOps Exif Google

Got to be a bit silly.
Doc's orders.

I agree, they are the best things that keep people out of it.
For failure, I still mess up and I work as a chef. There is nothing wrong with failure only not learning from it.

The initial cost is an issue because people get sold on the idea that they need certain tools or ingredients when in all honesty they have the majority of what they need.

Oh I fully agree with this as well.

I just want to give people a little confidence boost and teach them how to do something that I feel with make them feel proud of themselves and fill their bellies.

People need to feel they can do something before they jump into it and having a friendly face that encourages them rather than a drill sergeant is nice.



Failure is just part of how it works, but "they" don't need to know that at the start or they'll get discouraged. Me, I approach it this way - I will eat this food. If it's good, that will be my reward for the job I did. If not, my penance. Unless it's truly awful, but that hardly ever happens. Either way though the food isn't wasted and I learned something, and so far I can say the failures tend to teach you in bigger strides while successes tend to let you refine and zero in better.

We have a similar idea about this then, even if we're coming at it from somewhat different directions. You're like "hey, you can do it!" towards people you wish to spread the basic cooking skills, and I'm like, "hey just look at me, I'm eyeballing this and doing whatever and hey look, food, and it's nice. It's fine, no need to actually stress about these things".

Though speaking of the cubes, I've been toying with the idea of making some of my own. Basically the rough outline of the scheme I concocted is this:
- get a chicken
- toss it into a slow cooker with some select veggies - an onion, celery root, a carrot
- slow cook it for an entirely unreasonable amount of time
- open the slow cooker, turn it up to high, slow cook it for even more of that unreasonable amount of time
- remove the non-liquid contents of the slow cooker... and keep going until it reduces
- once it's reduced do... something. I'm not sure what yet. Maybe portion the result into an ice cube tray. But the bottom line of this step, "preserve the concentrated stock"

Think that would work?


That was the thing in culinary school too.
You had to eat your dish. Good or bad.

I like to take the encouragement route because I had a drill sergeant in my face about it.

You are making a weak demi in doing that and it will work fine.



Really? Huh. Interesting. Well, it makes sense to me... so long as they left that escape hatch in case of an unexpected true inedible failure. Maybe, like, I don't know - if power cut out 20% into baking a bread.

Yeah, that's actual school for you, I imagine. I'd assume they feel they can push much harder because they assume if you're there, you're already motivated enough not to quit. Going all Gordon Ramsey caricature on people about how they're fucking up the simplest things won't help when their big issue from the get go is the idea that they're just not cut out for it and it's all too much and too difficult for them. But yeah, what I mean with our two approaches is that one is "encourage to try" (gently, not Full Metal Saucepan style) vs "convince them task isn't actually that difficult to begin with by example".

Hmm... actually, that is a good point. Perhaps I could just skip all that and buy some demiglace in a jar? How would that work as cheat-stock for my hypothetical maybe ice-bullion-cubes?

I mean they would not make you eat something that would make you sick.

I have seen a lot of talented people drop out because of how the brigade culture breaks them.

I think it will work just as well, demi is full of flavor and adds a good mouth feel to dishes.



That's reasonable. Is that the sole cutoff?

Oh I'm not saying this is healthy or good, just that I assume this was the reason why they'd even have the idea they could treat the students like that at all. But then this is just suppositions. The one thing I can actually say for sure is "from what I've heard, I don't think I'd make it in culinary school", heh.

I've been eyeing a jar of demi in this one shop I happen to be in every so often, but could never justify actually getting it. This might just be the push for me to pick it up the next time.

It looks so pretty



That's an oof. At a certain point it seems less educational and more counterproductive. You're still supposed to be able to cook that good in the future, and there's no way you'll be at your best doing that if you hate that food.

I haven't so far because they only have it in a large (900ml, I assume that's "large" at any rate) jar at what seems like a pretty ridiculous price (I could literally get 10 kilo of bullion cubes for what they're asking for it). But yeah, I'm leaning towards "gotta try it at least once" now.

Personal feelings don't come into it. I dislike our hummus because I have made so much of it but I still make it to the best of my ability.

I would recommend it.



I don't expect you'll be spending much thought on how to make it better though. Then again I guess that's different if you're already drilled in making it vs having to learn and improve the technique on your own from the ground up.

I'll probably be in that store tomorrow. If they have The Jar, I will stare at it for a while, torn between wanting to get it and not wanting to pay that much, and then probably pick it up. That is, assuming it's something which keeps well (I am willing to freeze part of it as cubes if I need to to make it happen). If it's something I'd have to use up quickly, that might change things.


I suppose.

I would do what you feel most comfortable doing.



I was kinda hoping for advice, like a "no worries, I've used these many times and these things last forever" or "that might be a concern - once you open that jar, you'd best turn it into an actual sauce or whatever it is you're doing within the hour", or something inbetween, heh. Oh well, anyway - gotta drop!

Putting the majority of your life into something should entitle you to a bit of restitution when people come for advice.

I mean I think that is the end goal of all cooks.
To cook and master your craft and then teach others so you can make nice little brunches for your family and sip good whiskey in peace.

Nah nah. Water/mold/fire restoration is piss easy. 80% common sense and just knowing the right people. Only took about 6 years to get 2/3 of the masters certs from them. And that's about double the amount of time it would take if I rushed it. If more people asked me for my advice I'd charge more.

Sounds like the ideal to me too. Maybe get your own tv show out of it.

At this point though I'm fully flipped over to "I want it" so I went ahead and ordered some online. They had it in smaller jars so that is nice. The plan is to use it to just add some flavour to whatever might use some, rather than to cook anything specific.

I got myself in trouble.
I found me a tray of fresh lemongrass battons and I haven't got the faintest clue what to do with it.



Do you have no idea at all? It's good for adding that nice lemony aroma to a whole bunch of things of your choice. Maybe a listing some broad options that come to mind would help:
- soup
- stew
- drink
- aroma infuser (e.g. stuff it into a fish, bake the fish, remove the lemongrass)

If you're looking for the easiest use then that is probably to just crush it a bit and then toss it into some rice that you're steaming / cooking in a rice cooker. Remove it afterwards, and you now have rice which has a unique nice aroma to it.

Generally though, "crush/bruise it and then treat it like a bay leaf, except with things that would work well with a lemony aroma" is the way to go with these, so maybe you can just keep it on hand for a while seeing if an opportunity to use it randomly arises? It freezes pretty well.

Yeah. I didn't have a hammer so I used a skillet to hammer them flat. Wasn't flat enough though so texture's off. Fried alright though.

I fucked up on the sauce I think. Made too much when I added the egg. Didn't congeal how I wanted it to. Hm hm hm.

it does not need to be too flat! often at home, i just use hands to flatten it, by hitting at it in between two paper towels, to get surface moisture out too.

did you cut each cutlet in half, too, before flattening?

i happen to think you did a great job, tracer!!

It worries me that they might not get proper nutrition, but I think that has a lot to do with other factors. The best I can do is help where I can.

It does solve the problem and I do like being in the kitchen.

I am familiar with The Hitching Post actually.

Yep, some juice from fermented peppers and some leftover rib glaze.

Again don't look down on that. I want to help them.
It is always a confidence issue.


Eh, I am hardly being a "chef", I am just cycling through a set of recipes I have found that I like and occasionally spending an hour looking up a few new ones.

There's also the issue that when you love alone, portioning stuff gets a bit wonky, cause at least where I live, buying ingredients pretty much exclusively come sin "family of four" sizes. So its' a whole mess of "how long does this keep? Can I find a way to make like, three differeny recipes out of as many of the same things as possible? How much does rice or pasta expand?" etc. I have no clue about any of these things, and my brain will much rather focus on something I wanna draw, a video I am making or something, so that information leaves me immediately after I make the damn food.

Well, I do believe a minority have some severe psychological issues with food. Like ones that can only eat pizza or can only eat one type of food. Some people's bodies may have allergic reactions to a lot of things too. I think that for the majority of people who would rather order an uber of McDonalds and wait an hour for the delivery and pay a total of 60 bucks for cold burgers, fries, tots and a watered down soda and consider that "the better option" just need to be shown how much easier, tastier, and cheaper it is to cook things yourself.

You and Wheat just gotta get that cottage style house with the stainless steel kitchen. Sandwich problem solved.

Oh? It's been much too long since I've been there but I thought the food was quite good.

>Fermented peppers
Oh nice, that'll pep up the back end flavor without cranking the heat too much. Glaze would do for sweetness too. Sounds like good wings.

Just stating that you haven't been doing the craft long enough to be considered stupid with it.

I have a small pocket that I use at work all the time.

Let me get my quick pickle brine recipe for you.
Pickled red onion goes great with salmon.

-2 whole red onions sliced thin
(Pickle liquid)
-2 cups rice wine vinegar
-3 tbsp Kosher salt.
-1 cup H2O
-1 tsp toasted cumin
-1 tbsp jalapeño powder or fresh
-orange peel
-1 tbsp red chili flake
-juice of an orange

Mix everything in a pot except the onions and the OJ.
Thinly slice the onions while you bring the pot to a boil.
Remove from heat and add the juice.
Cover the onions and chill.



I am writing that down for another time I think, I just kinda want to make a quick snack tomorrow to use some stuff I have that I won't end up using for anything else, but that does sound VERY good. Could do that for a much bigger serving sometime.

Unless it is something like PB&J.

That is more the bread as dips are a bit hard to play with sweet sandwiches.

I take a multi as well as a skin/hair/nail supplement and have also started taking a fiber supplement.

Why do you ask?



Perhaps better to say *savory sandwich

I mean you could do something interesting with it.

Like a toasted pbj with a hot honey maple dipping sauce.



Onion jam?

If you played with the flavor of the nut spread to be more in line with like a peanut sauce or something like that.

Or a savory pecan spread.

ohhh, celeriac is very tough to clean. like a rutabaga, so many crevasses.

for such a vegetable, i use the toothbrush. also sometimes, some abrasive salt. and i will still cut off the feathery parts that might hide sand that cannot be reached.

but, i also think, a little dirt builds character c: so i don't mind it on some vegetables, like beets.

Real beets just have a pretty bland taste.

So I made a quick thing of seafood for dinner and it's pretty good.

- a tray of frozen mixed seafoods
- leek, chopped
- juice squeezed out of half a lemon
- white wine for cooking
- cream
- semi-instant pad thai noodles
- salt, pepper, thyme
- butter

- set aside a bowl and rehydrate the semi-instant pad thai noodles with hot water in it as you go. Once they're done, strain them
- toss some butter into a frying pan, add leek, cook stirring until it softens nicely
- add frozen seafood tray contents, add herbs and spices, cook stirring on low heat for a bit, then add a sensible amount of white cooking wine and lemon juice and turn the heat back up
- cook until the wine is reduced somewhat and the seafood is cooked just right - already actually cooked, but not yet rubbery
- reduce the heat again, and add the cream. Stir lightly until the liquids in your pan combine into a uniform sauce
- toss in the pad thai noodles, mix everything well, serve. Ideally in something that's actually presentable instead of in a random blue plastic bowl you have lying around

The dish is pretty quick and easy if you have the ingredients around, and the "unusual" ones in it (the noodles and the seafood mix) are pretty good for long term storage so you can pick them up and keep them for whenever. The flavour is very nice, too, and the pad thai noodles do a good job at carrying it. All in all I'm pretty happy with how it turned out.


it looks almost like a ceviche!!

i have never heard of this before.



I wasn't following a recipe, just went "hey I have this frozen seafood mix, why don't I make something with it" and this is what I ended up with, so I'm not surprised. It's vaguely inspired by moules mariniere, but I didn't have any parsley on hand. Thinking on it, adding some could probably work nicely though.

320g cornmeal
3g baking soda
3g salt
1 large egg
296ml buttermilk
84ml  unsalted butter, melted

Preheat oven to 400F (204C)

In one bowl mix the dry items and in another mix the wets.
Slowly add the wets to the drys mixing until well incorporated.
Add the batter to the hot skillet and bake for 20 minutes or until a cake tester/toothpick comes out clean.

I propose a long con where I get invited to your sisters house for a holiday/event and I'll steal it back.

Honestly, it isn't worth it.

She needs something.
I'm being a horrible sister.

Right now I am just thinking of walking to the corner store to get a bag of chips and ponder how bad tomorrow is gonna hurt.

Thanksgiving weekend is bad there?

When the last thing a boss says to you before your weekend is "please don't quit" I think it says all that needs to be said.

Jesus. You definitely need a break then.

I got an email from one of the other departments on the resort begging for people because they lost a quarter of their staff in two days.

Not food related and dealing with kids so not worth the seven-day work week.

> they lost a quarter of their staff in two days
Holy shit. That's impressively sad. How mismanaged is that place?

The concierge has almost a 200% turnover.

Most of the money that my location makes is being used to prop up the sister locations because COVID demolished them.  

Our average tenure is 2 years for cooks.

FOH is six months.

>Bleeding money to prop up other areas
>In doing so bleeding their own staff dry
It's just going to get worse in that case.

The thing is that we survive on the back of externships so it is not like staffing cooks will ever be an issue.
Two years here gets you a pedigree for other places.

I might have to start looking because the housing market here is just not sustainable.

Or maybe I should invest in that cooking vtuber thing.

I mean I will never make it as big as Giri but it has to pay better than 30K a year.

Housing market is terrible. And simply not livable currently.

Whichever route you decide on I'll assist any way I'm able.

I have thought about getting my teaching degree and just getting a home ec job in the middle of nowhere.

Only thing that would suck about that is the pay wouldn't be great.

I mean it would be about the same as I make now.

Would have more fun with it too, probably.

Wouldn't need to prep that many turkeys ever again.
