#1437800 Why Are Chinese Restaurants So Similar?

Posted by mongo_jones on 19 February 2019 - 03:02 PM

And the Indian restaurants. I can literally open an Indian restaurant with canned tomato soup, butter, vinegar, yogurt and a few other things.


good news! now that andrew zimmern has solved this problem for chinese restaurants he will be taking on indian and thai next!

have you considered adding a layer of haggis and then deep frying the whole?

#1437230 Favourite meals of 2018

Posted by mongo_jones on 01 February 2019 - 03:03 PM

our best meal in london in june--traveling with our own kids and so nothing remotely ambitious on the radar--was probably at tandoor chophouse. i might even get around to writing that meal up this month.


no high cuisine highs but lots of pleasurable meals in hong kong, bombay and delhi in december.

#1434623 Thanksgiving 2018

roasting goat leg this year instead of turkey. hoping 10 lbs (2 legs) will be enough for 9 adults and 3 children. potato-leek-goat cheese gratin. roasted squash soup. soofle, of course. the kids have also asked for mashed potatoes and gravy. sticky carrot cake. lots of cheese. guests are bringing more sides and desserts. plenty of wine and calvados. maybe some sherry to go with the carrot cake.

#1433014 brown rice: a question

Posted by mongo_jones on 04 October 2018 - 05:07 PM

in an attempt to get my triglycerides (and general lipid) profile under control i have, among other things, cut down on refined grains. i have all but eliminated white rice from my diet and have begun to enjoy brown rice (which i make by the saveur method with some extra soaking). but i have a nagging question that i cannot seem to get answered (have not talked with a dietician). here is the question:

is brown rice affirmatively good for you? or is it the case that if you have to eat rice, brown rice is much better than white but really it's better if you don't eat too much rice of any kind? 


i guess that's two questions.
