#1438865 What's with the no activity?

Posted by Peter Creasey on 16 March 2019 - 01:52 PM


one of the "damaging" aspects is when you have posters who are argumentative, arrogant, condescending, or of similar type demeanor. We've seen it here


Interestingly, the certain guys (and, yes, they were all male, I believe) who drove away posters with their ugliness have now gone away themselves (or curtailed their posting)...thereby making it obvious they cared little about this Board.

Paul, surely anyone who's honest will acknowledge that admin post: deleted political content.
[EDITED TO ADD]  My first job I road my bicycle downtown to be a busboy, etc. for a cafeteria from 8 - 2 making $.50/hour (plus free lunch).

Staying home with good food and beverages...and away from all the crazies!  (Not to mention, having the pleasure of 9:00 bedtime.)

Steve, I assumed that he was being above board and using his real name, no?

#1419355 Chartreuse

Posted by Peter Creasey on 20 November 2017 - 03:49 PM

1)  If served straight (up) after the cheese course, will Chartreuse work with mignardises (miscellaneous cookies and chocolate bites) or should it be held back after the mignardises?

2)  Served straight (up) cold or not cold?



#1418793 Daily special a bad idea?

Posted by Peter Creasey on 09 November 2017 - 02:34 PM


It can be hard to decide what to choose from a menu when you dine in a restaurant.

But some chefs and waiters have lifted the lid on what really goes on in the kitchens, and highlighted dishes you should always avoid.

#1418344 Preferred first course

Thanks for comments so far.


Oops, I see I should have stipulated "no raw protein".

#1418338 Preferred first course

Posted by Peter Creasey on 02 November 2017 - 02:08 PM

For, say, a 3 or 4 course at-home dinner with different wine for each course, what might be the preferred non-soup first course -- both from the cook's point of view and the diner's?


From the cook's point of view, it needs to be (mostly?) pre-prepared, preferably warm, and easy to plate and serve.  And, of course, from the diner's point of view, delicious, wine-friendly, and hopefully at least somewhat memorable.


Thanks for all thoughts!

#1416683 Butter in 2017

Posted by Peter Creasey on 06 October 2017 - 10:47 PM


Americans have renewed their love affair with butter, slathering it on corn, plopping pats in their coffee and even using it to mix cocktails.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture projected that 2017 consumption will rise 10 percent from a year earlier, hitting 940,000 metric tons, the highest in half a century. The nation will devour more than 2 billion pounds of butter this year, more than 6.1 pounds per person, and the resurgence has helped make Dallas Wuethrich a billionaire. His Grassland Dairy Products Inc., founded in 1904 by his grandfather John, who churned it by hand, now produces about one-third of the nation’s butter.
