  • I watch a lot of food tubers, but keep coming back to this for the real deal. There's a lot of focus on simple, at-home methods these days, but I find this channel to be educational and inspiring in a way that many aren't. Also this dude's accent is ridiculously charming.

  • I work as a cook for a buffet in Las Vegas, I wish my fellow cooks could put more passion and heart into their work, however the amount of customers causes opur head chef to use a lot of frozen foods, pre diced tomatos, potato, carroots, onions... We used to make our own pizza dough, but now we get boxes of frozen pizza dough already rolled out into a perfect circle.. It tastes bland, almost cardboard like...

  • Sorry, for asking this, but HOW do I use it? For example: Making beef roulades, stewing them in pure water, then I get some kind of sauce, nothing spectecular! AND now I could add some Espagnole, to make it taste much better???

  • Ако са добре узрели български домати, можеш да ги белиш и без заваряване, но понеже в Европа се ядат само боклуци, доматите трябва да се заварят и закалят. Но европа така или иначе не позволява на нас българите собствено производство, така че да правят каквото си искат!

    • No that means you don't understand cooking. The ingredient gave their flavor and nutriuets to the sauce that was the purpose of sweating rendering and browning.

  • What kind of bacon do you recommend for french cooking? I've realised while living abroad that different countries have very different interpretations of bacon. Back at home, German 'Speck' used to be very salty and smokey, but I have since seen (/tasted) different kinds of bacon, even sweet bacon without any smoke aroma. So what would you recommend taste-wise? Thanks
