Re: Food thread

IMO fruit should never be combined with vegetables in a salad. Sweetness is something that belongs in dessert, thus I abhor the thought of mango in a main meal salad, pineapple on pizza and on burger etc

yes, disappointingly conventional thinking from you, General TSD. "Fruit" and "Vegetable" are just conventions. Many would say that a tomato is really a fruit (scientifically it is), while the avocado is used like a vegetable in Mexican cuisine. Many list mushrooms as vegetables, though they aren't even plants. These classifications limit us needlessly. Open your mind.

Also, the point of green mango salad is that the mango is unripe; it's not as sweet as the one you'd buy to eat on it's own as a dessert.

Pineapple, Onion and turkey sound great for a salad but if you mix the ingredients just like that, it will not taste good, you need to balance the sweetness of the fruit, the strong flavor of the vegetable and still make the meat noticeable (it is practically tasteless compared to the other two ingredients), there's where dressings and other "neutral" vegetables come and make a great salad
affirmative. that is why this is going to take some time before we narrow it down to absolute perfection.

What's wrong with bacon? Too "un-gourmet" for you Spaniards? Only for "poor" people? .

But as long as the bacon is crispy and adds a nice contrast to the salad, then it's a seal of approval for me.

Re: Food thread

I am not a big fan of bacon, I prefer iberian ham or york ham but it is not that bad.

I just think that the point of a salad is to have a healthy meal so it is better to use lean meat

Because "rich, prestigious" ham > "poor, fat people" ham

Plus, the fat is rendered down when it's crispy. All it would do to a salad is add a smoky flavour. Even if there is fat on rendered-down crispy bacon, I assure you, it's not much.

Re: Food thread

howdy food people?

i see topspindoc's point.....he said sweetness belongs in the deserts and i think he is right.....i dislike carrot curry, to me carrots are for just having them as it is and maybe in milkshakes......

different tastes for different folks......but again i like a little pine apple stuff on a desi spicy roti or even on a pizza......so it depends......

there are countless sweet-spice varieties under 'khatta-meetha' in india......

Tomatoes are a fruit only botanically + they don't taste sweet. I am purely talking about perversions like plum sauces on meats/poultry, pineapple on pizza/in burgers, mango in salads etc. There is a huge difference. If you watch some of our food shows, it seems like most of the dishes mix shit just for the sake of mixing it. Salt, pepper, chilli, sugar, fruit, vegies, honey, 656556 different kinds of herbs...it's like they are cooking for pigs ffs.

Re: Food thread

I agree in some cases with the Doc here. Some typical school dishes here in Finland are chicken sauce with pineapple or orange slices in there and I don't really like it. Don't like pineapple in anything to be honest, one of the few flavors/ingredients that I dislike. On the other hand, in some cases combining sweet and salty/sour is great.

Only Del Potro can take him out before the semis, and he won't. Nadal is winning the AO, bet your house on it.

Re: Food thread

not everybody likes salads anyway. i never bothered with them until recently.

i want to look at a salad as a means of energy replenishing snack that can 2 things:

some carbo loading before the workout and a part of the carbo resynthesis process after a workout.

this will eliminate the need for those energy bars and also it will be a lot healthier.

and it will save money.
