  1. SHIP TO GERMANY. The beans here suck. Even the expensive ones.
  2. Generally agree, but hard to take seriously someone writing about architecture, that doesn’t know how to spell steel. There is I suppose one defensible reason to build cheap, and that is to produce affordable housing. That said, I would note that building quality, even for cheap buildings, is extraordinary in Germany compared to anywhere else I’ve seen except maybe Switzerland. I don’t know why this is. Guesses would be apprenticeship system, and high transaction costs from buying/selling real estate.
  3. the far more effective approach would be to get rid of people.

    I apparently hit my innards wall today. We ordered German from our favorite place and, as they had it on the day menu, I thought I would finally try milzwurst. Milz = Spleen. Basically tasted like breaded and fried Weißwurst, which was just...no. I got through 2 pucks with a lot of mustard and Mr. B took the third one for the team.

    Well, the thing is, if you want to use enough cream to substantially change the texture you're risking pretty mean digestive consequences. If you want a thick creamy soup a loose béchamel is much more effective. I do like cream in soups, but I whip first and fold in. That gives a very nice fine texture, but it's a different thing.

    I think bechamel in soup is unfairly maligned!

    So here's a thing: this being Bavaria, I know several people who will not eat any meat except game they've hunted themselves. Too many deer/boar endanger forests, and it's a pretty quick death if you know what you're doing.

    Supper

    Lentil & bulgar mujaddara with fried onions. Okra fried then stewed with tomato, onion and lots of olive oil. A cucumber & yogurt salad. The kids actually liked the mujaddara, but wouldn't try anything else. Baby steps.

    Supper

    Leftovers: leftover artichokes and a couple slices of prosciutto in a frittata. Old soft cheese made into Obatzda, eaten on whole wheat “pretzel-style” Knäckebrot. Castelvetrano olives. Kids had Nürnberg sausages because while they profess to care about animals and the environment, they don’t care so much that they would be willing to eat vegetables.

    So Joe, is your point that if we can’t be a little bit better, we shouldn’t try at all?

    Hamburgers neither contain ham nor come from Hamburg. In Frankfurt, Frankfurters are called Wieners even though they don’t come from Vienna. I find all this very confusing.
  12. Good artists borrow, great artists steal?
  13. Don't you ever wonder if Picasso just came up with these things on the fly, or if he planned them for weeks ahead of dinner parties? So for me, with a full time job and kids, I rarely have time to follow recipes. When I do have time (bank holiday/weekend) there are three reasons I follow a recipe: New ingredient I don't know what to do with Want to improve on a technique Bored with the taste of my own cooking, want a new flavour profile For everyday cooking, I lean on what I've learned from the above to switch it up or make it better.

    I am so glad my taxes are supporting such critical discussions*. I'm also a little sad they didn't go for "Veggie Tube". *I jest, but sometimes I do wish the EU would keep in mind their own reputation risk when choosing legislation to opine upon.

    Lest one think this is some American hipster thing, I can confirm we went to a pretty phenomenal traditional Buddhist restaurant in Beijing, Seoul as well.
