The repetition of a theme interesting.  Even more so where it is not pertinent to the topic.


Well, it make sense, doesn't it?  Food is vital, necessary, and binds the world with a common cry:  "Let's Eat!"

I posted these links in a previous thread, but thought it would do well with a thread of its own; tie together all sorts of food-and-drink topics; make reference to the old ones; give some a chance to revel publicly about their favourite snack, disastrous recipes, and culinary excesses.  What do you like to eat?  How do you prepare it?  What oil do you use on your grill?  What's the best herb for...?  Here are the collected "food" links from days of old:

Now, if you'll excuse me, it's quite late and I'm a bit peckish.  Think I'll have a snack and go to bed.  G'night.

Teased out a couple more threads hidden away and rearranged ever so slightly to accommodate a newly emergent sub-grouping.

Who knows, maybe it'll be useful enough to be pinned.  I will endeavor to keep it updated as new food topics fly over my head.

If you'll excuse me, it's getting on to a late morning snack...maybe some nice Ma'Mounia with almonds and raisins...  Oh yes.

Somewhat the kitchen mad scientist, I have created a living organism in a jar using only water and flour...

My wife refers to it as my girlfriend.

Utilizing very ancient techniques, I combined organic flour and water in specific proportions, captured wild yeast inside of the mix, and created a life: my wild yeast sourdough starter. I use parts of it to make bread.
I have to feed and water it regularly, or it will die. Sometimes you can see it breathing.

If anyone's interested, I have a baking site, as well. I'm planning on putting up a how-to about my starter in a few days.
"Well a process man am I and I'm tellin' you no lie
I work and breathe among the fumes that tread across the sky
There's thunder all around me and there's poison in the air
There's a lousy smell that smacks of hell and dust all in me hair" -Great Big Sea

Great Idea to get this all lovely food in one place -

I fancy doing the cook along with the british chef Gordon Ramsey on the next series - anyone try doing this with a web cam and manage to keep up?

I admit I have not read ALL the threads so it may have been mentioned already but if not, I can recommend a cook book that contains authentic dishes from the early 19th century but someone has done all the hard work of tracing obscure ingredients and sourcing 21st C replacements where necessary. The book is "Lobscouse and Spotted Dog" by Anne Chotzinoff Grossman and Lisa Grossman Thomas and is a book that describes food as mentioned in the Aubrey/ Maturin novels of Patrick O'Brian. We regularly eat Lobscouse and have tried some of the other recipes and not been disappointed yet. However, not tried Millers yet!
