Thumbs up The Cooking and Food Lover's Thread

For anyone who loves to cook or loves FOOD.

I am an Asian Chef at my Uni's Housing and dining center, while also having numerous experience else where. My favorite cooking is Asian and Italian. I dabble with steaks and meats, but my home calling is stir fry and yummy pasta sauces . If you have any cooking questions I would be happy to answer them!

I will post pictures of my cooking when I get time

General Questions
If you cook what kind of things do you like to cook?
If you love to eat, post a Pic of your favorite food, or describe it.
Mexican,Asian, Italian, American or Other food?

With that have at it

Re: The Cooking and Food Lover's Thread

Looks great dude. I have opened a food thread previously though (check around page 4 or 5), so this will most likely be merged with it.

But to answer your question, yes I do cook, but only when I have spare time. When it comes to eating food, pretty much anything floats my boat. And it's about damn time someone discussed food around here.

I just love to eat but don't like and don't know how to cook

but to answer your questions:
a. instant noodles
b. too many to list: Chinese dim sum, corn, chocolate .......
c. Chinese/Thailand/Japanese/Vitenam food

Rafa! Rafa! Rafa!

Epic movies, like brokeback mountain, are seldom found in the industry or worthy for the mainstream viewer. As often as I have watched the clips of this movie, I always find something more to it. For one, the gay stuff doesn't enter the picture for me, only the dimension of the highest love I have ever witnessed in life or on film.

Well what in specific is your favorite dish to cook ? Also of course everyone likes food, but YOU must have at least one favorite dish :P

My favorite dish is call Chicken Paprika or Chicken Paprikash, it is a Slovenian Dish, which has an unbelievable taste. It has a lot of cream, a lot of paprika, some onions, chicken, as well as, your choice of dumplings, rice, or some variation of pasta. It is a longer process, but is well worth it.

Magnifico

Re: Food thread

I am slowly working my way through Elizabeth David's French Provincial Cooking.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Elizabeth_David

Highlights include John Dory in cream & onion sauce, pheasant in Calvados, cream, & apple sauce, hare civet, chicken tarragon, grey mullet with olives & white wine, lamb baked with potatoes, fillet steak with herbs, butter, & boiled eggs, roast goose, calf's liver with mushrooms & herbs, boeuf Bourgignon, & scallops with bacon, shallots, & white wine.

Re: Food thread

Sophy cooks too?

I've been forced to cook ever since I came to London; I never bothered to learn when I was living at home in Singapore. It's fun, especially when the finished product doesn't taste too bad and doesn't make me sick. I cook a lot of Asian food because, let's face it, paying 8 pounds in a restauarant for something that I can make as well, if not better, myself is pretty silly. When I'm lazy I cook pasta or make a salad.

My favourite cuisine is Indian by a mile. I love Malay too; I pretty much like anything spicy and richly flavoured. That means that I find Chinese food pretty boring in general, but I LOVE dim sum (who doesn't?).

The one cuisine that I hate with a passion is Korean. I tried it a couple of times and hated it every time. Kimchi is just... Using instant noodles for a ramen dish is just...

Re: Food thread

Anyone got any good brain food ideas?

I really feel dead this evening, can't think straight, and the problem is, I need to have my wits about me. It's essential.

Re: Food thread

Good thinking. Proves my point that I didn't think of it, and it's obvious?

Re: Food thread

As I have previously written in the thread, I love to cook! My mom always cooked proper food at home and I've continued the tradition. It's a common hobby with my spouse nowadays when both of us have long days working or studying. We usually cook different types of chicken meals (healthy, low calorie meat) with different types of salads or oven made veggies on the side.

One of my personal favorites is gravlax and we've made mango ceviche using gravlax, it's great . Also we've made thai-style chicken & coconut milk soup quite often.

Love your standards . Can I ask why you are in London? Internship perhaps or as an exchange student?

I love Kimchi

Only Del Potro can take him out before the semis, and he won't. Nadal is winning the AO, bet your house on it.
Somewhere out there, there is a homeless person who once took betting advice from GSMnadal
