How do you like the solid handle chef's knife, over a full tang one, Vader?

I have been using my chef's knife for like 8 years now and no complains. It feels good, it cuts well so what more can you ask for?

Fitting my current Chinese cooking binge these are two cookbooks I highly recommend.





Authentic presentation of the two hot Chinese cuisines - Sichuan and Hunan. If you share my degree of addiction you'll find yourself hunting down "heaven faced peppers" and stuff on the internet and spend truckloads of money on ordering authentic ingredients from all over the world, simply because your local Asia shops already are to westernized.

For Chinese-American cooking, this is the book I recommend. I worked in the author's restaurant back in the 80's.



As it is out of print, I'm excited to see it available on amazon.

For fuck's sake, Vader! That's almost as many BTU's as the furnace to heat my HOUSE!

[somewhat related to your FB on this topic...except in very particular cases, I use canola if I want little/no flavor from the oil, sesame if I want a bit, and corn when I just need to scorch thing up without smoke setting off my fire alarm...I'm simple that way.]


OH...ON TOPIC! Did I mention anywhere, I got a decent espresso machine at xmas. Freaking yum.

I love my Blend-tec, but Vitamix is just as good.

Blend-tec is a smarter blender. You can fit it under the counter, whereas you have to buy a different container with the Vita. $160.00 more. stupid...........but I can't complain, it was a gift.

Not anything I own, but instantly thought it would be the ideal gift for those who are both Apple geeks and who love to cook.
Yes, I'm looking at you, lorin Wink

Precision Apple Tree Wood Unibody Cutting Board

A cutting board shaped just like a MacBook Pro.
Made of apple tree wood with food safe oiled finish.

> It is NEITHER a case NOR a wooden cover NOR a shell for your MacBook!

Every AppleBoard starts its life as a piece of apple tree wood. Each block is precisely machined into the basic unibody design. Another pass and the unibody takes shape. It takes multiple milling operations in a CNC machine to create the AppleBoard unibody.

Rub in a little vegetable oil from time to time.

3 sizes:
13-inch (325 x 227 mm)
15-inch (364 x 249 mm)
17-inch (393 x 267 mm) > 17-inch sold out!

New visp bowls! Wow! From Biltema (which means car theme). We went there for the wiper thingies for the car front window and I got bowls. Not very exciting, but I needed new!
http://www.biltema.se/sv/Hem/Kok/Tillbehor/Vispskalar-3-st-850105/

I am strongly considering buying a food processor thingie soon, too. I never bought one because i wasn't sure it would really do anything that I couldn't already do by hand. But, having been making my own falafel and veggie burgers a lot lately, I thought it could be better for that than trying to do by hand or using a hand visp thingie that pushes stuff to mush instead of to pieces. Does anyone here make regular use of a food processor and, if so, what are the best uses you make from it?

Yeah, it's a piece of junk, but it was .99 cents and it has a built-in mouse hook.


....what's a mouse hook?

Google and Bing were not our friends in this query. Sad

I bet Owlie would be able to help, if she were to look at the image. She now teaches English in Japan. If she can't read the kanji (excuse this Yank if I get the script name wrong...) and help us through the cultural context of how "mouse hook" became the translation of whatever idiom they use for some aspect of a combination rotary can opener / triangle punch can opener / bottle opener, then she certainly can put the question to one of her native-born colleagues.

That would be awesome. Is she in Japan now? I thought she was in Korea.

I'm a bit of an etymology geek, but this one has me baffled. Nonetheless, mouse hook it is. Woe betide anyone who gives me a weird look when I ask them to pass the mouse hook.

Owlie spent a couple years teaching in Korea, but has been in Japan for roughly the last two. Not often seen on the Watch, but Facebook puts her at Mt. Fuji about a week ago.
