Wtf? Do rich people have no taste? Is this normal?

Yeah, it's pretty normal. Most rich people don't have good taste and they aren't very smart.

Poor people can't cook either. No, opening a plastic twinkie wrapper or putting a frozen pizza in the oven doesn't count.

if you don't know what goes into cooking, you'd be impressed too.
>>17048521
most people don't know how to cook. that's the real problem here. only difference is rich people can always be a valuable customer base, which is what OP is seeing.
there really isn't a big difference in class here when you think about it. people suck dick at cooking.

1:1 ratio by volume of potato to butter

butter, good potatoes (be sure to treat them nice, sleep with them even), salt galore, and more butter. cream is helpful.

Shitty potatoes are soft and have been left in the silo for too long so all the starch is sugar and they brown way too fast

It sucks cause like 80% of my cooking repertoire I've never tasted before outside of my own cooking so I'm not sure what the balance of flavours is actually supposed to be and just go off what I like which is sad cause I'm not interested in cooking what I like but what is authentic when I'm exploring cuisines
Would fail like gordon easily
>>
>>17048611
It could be worse.
I like to try recipes from ancient cultures, and there's no one alive who actually knows what any of that is supposed to taste like.
At least with your stuff it's hypothetically possible to find someone who knows and ask.

I had a friend in college who drank Coors beer and Manischewitz Concord wine, mixed fifty-fifty.

Does this happen to your knife?
any opinion?
>>
>>17048437
No. I know how to sharpen a knife.
>>
>>17048437
You're not honing the burr off at the end of sharpening. You could either leave the edge ragged like a finetooth saw, or finish off honing the edge.
>>
>>17048437
Stop watching reddit webms on the knife forum or whatever. You can sharpen an edge so that it will slice right through a tomato or whatever without going at an angle; you can also just buy replacement blades for a straight razor. But they'll only stay sharp for a single shave. It's the difference between buying an expensive nip blade and learning how to take care of it compared to using a $40 Victorinox workhorse. The Nip blade is higher maintenance, but can do much finer work. On the other hand, I'll always reach for the workhorse when I need to chop anything.

If you're too retarded to use whetstones, get a worksharp. Easy as hell and get knives 90ish pct as sharp as with good stones.

Im a big fat guy and I want to eat more kale. How do I figure out what flavors go with what with salad? Is there a guide? All I ever find is recipes.
14 replies and 2 images omitted. Click here to view.

All these useless anons not actually answering the question.

Most of the ones in pic related have very few ingredients. I know your question is more "how do I know what vegetables go well together", but this is a decent starting point. Try to pick a few that share some ingredients so you don't have to buy a shitton of groceries and give em a try. I also recommend adding some kind of protein so it will keep you full for longer and be mindful about not using too much dressing since you're trying to lose weight.
>>
>>17045087
Kale Caesar is the shit. Kale is actually the superior green for creamy dressings, as far it's 'sturdy' and has little ruffles to hold the dressing
>>
>>17045087
>>17047422
I swear to god someone just came up with the "kale caesar" meme because they thought the name was so funny for sounding like "hail caesar" even though it's an absolute garbo fucking salad.
>>
>>17044665
>>17045660
I skimmed this, but it omits the essential trick to eating more green salads as a fatfuck is to add some chopped up or shredded cheese on top. Try different kinds of cheese, too.

There are people who actually believe any of the following are true:
1. Gatorade is hydrating
2. Gatorade is healthy
3. Sports athletes drink gatorade
I find the branding on gatorade to be right up there with Dawn "soap" (it should be called detergent because it isn't technically a soap) as one that totally fools normies, such as ive heard Chelcie Lynn suggest to clean her ahem with dawn because it works on ducks, or ive heard my friend say give your kid some gatorade because they're sick and need electrolytes
This is all branding! There is no evidence saying gatorade is more hydrating than say soda or dawn is somehow good for the skin because it got literal oil off ducks

One time I went on a 6 hour walk around my neighbourhood and I was very thirsty and I tried drinking water and it didn't satisfy me so I decided to buy some gatorade and suddenly I felt quenched
Was weird

So what you're saying is that I should pre-soak and/or boil my potatoes in beef stock, tomato sauce, or something else that isn't water.

OP and others, check out archive.org it will have a bunch of cookbooks for whatever you are trying to cook. Some require you to check the out like at a library, others are available instantly. Can find some really OLD cookbooks too.

Pei Mei is a classic author. The in print books are hard to come by, but its a really authentic source.

I am a big fan of Kenneth Lo. His 'New Chinese Cooking School" is a hard copy that really helped me master dishes and get into Chinese cuisine. Great instructions and ingredients explanations too.
