Re: Controversial opinions about food

I'm not sure I could even tell the difference between ghee and butter on a piece of butter naan. That's how little I use ghee. And my Indian cooking may not be close to as good as a native's but when I'm on, it's on.

Re: Controversial opinions about food

That might be controversial but methinks the controversy is more about whether people want to be called wusses than about whether jalapenos are super hot. Interestingly, the jalapenos they tend to grow around here (at least, I buy them at the farmer's market from locals) are significantly hotter tha...

Re: Beer is proof that God loves us and wants us to be happy

I had so many choices at the bevmo today for Dogfish Head brews that I haven't tried before, but I ended up reverting back to a 6-pack of indian brown ale, and after drinking one I remember why my brain made me do what I did. So good.

Pomelo is a different fruit altogether (though a delicious one) and I was looking for an English word or at least loanword into English. Is there anywhere that pamplemousse has replaced grapefruit among non-French speakers?

Re: Cooking disasters

If you haven't been scarred for life by the experience, there is a really good recipe for baked chicken wings that requires a very *light* coating of salt and baking soda or powder. Not so much that they taste bitter, but enough to dehydrate them and make the skin get really crispy.
