I bought a semi-boneless halved lamb leg…basically its a 1 pound piece of meat with a leg bone in the middle from a lamb. I’ve always wanted to try lamb, because in movies and stuff its considered "luxury". anyway, what should I be expecting, what should it taste like? Any cooking ideas? I’m thinking of just sprinkling on salt and pepper and baking it on a rack in the oven.
How good the lamb is will depend on how well you cook it, just like all meat. Of course, you can get lamb that isn’t fresh, but I’ll just assume you got some good stuff.
I find it to be one of the best books I have ever read.
I found it so astonishingly graphic in the sense of the emotion Orwell pours into Smith, I wanted to keep reading after I finished it.
Then again the horror of the government and the logic they destroy and rebuild with absolute deception.
Please tell me your thoughts, go deeper.
what is this about again? i might have to read it just because ive heard so much good stuff about it
I read it for the second time about six months ago, very good book.
I feel it necessary to get some FACTS out there pertaining to the delicious spirit known as Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey. Some people say they don’t like it but have only drunk shitty ass Jim Beam white label in high school or college! What the mother fuck?!? I’ve even heard some people refer to bourbon as "rot gut!" This hurts me deeply. May the ignorant souls who slander bourbon burn in eternal hell! Everyone is entitled to their own opinion however there are many misconceptions about America’s native spirit. I have decided to take time to re-educate the idiot masses in hopes that whoever reads this at least gains a small understanding of this drink. I don’t expect everyone to love bourbon after reading this, however you will probably be surprised about some of what you learn.
This is well worth the read. I used to be a grill cook at a top restaurant in Ann Arbor and now I feel like an amateur compared to the guys in the back of the house of Morton’s and Peter Luger.
Here’s the original article if you have a WSJ online sub:
The Search for the Perfect Steak
A couple of years ago, after a once-in-a-lifetime dinner, I decided I really wanted to learn wine. After stubling around in the dark, I decided to invest the time and effort to do it correctly; there was no way I was going to understand what makes wine special by randomly picking bottles off the supermarket shelf. I sketched out a rough plan (listed below, and modified heavily since) that would take me through the basics of the red wine world.
Two and a half years into it, and I’ve had some real eye-opening moments. I’m no closer now to finding a common denominator to the wines I like — and thus being able to predict whether I will like an untasted wine — than when I began. I’ve been taking meticulous notes and have several favorites, but with one or two exceptions I haven’t had the same wine twice.
Looking to pick up an interesting read to look at in my spare time. I don’t have a hard time reading but I have ready _very_ few books since …. elementary school maybe. I seriously think the last book I read was one of the Harry Potter books.
I don’t have a specific genre I like, but maybe something crime related. I read a lot of non-fiction type stuff online like articles on cars, reviews, opinion based stuff etc.
I’d like to get something kind of short so that I can actually see that I’m making progress through the book.
I love cooking, but watching Top Chef and Hell’s Kitchen makes me want to up the ante a bit. Apart from reading/doing a bunch of recipes, what are some good sources for advanced cooking knowledge?

make mistakes on someone else’s nickel.
Food network helps you get the basics down, then you can either do culinary school or experiment on your own.
