Welcome to The Kitchen

Welcome to the Kitchen.

Give me some suggestions, guys. Any ideas for sticky threads? I’m thinking maybe one for where people can post a recipe that they are going to follow, and then take pictures of the process would be fun. Also, a sticky with helpful links and resources would be a good idea, too.

On the liquor aspect.

A few ground rules:
1. Keep all discussion tasteful and relevant.

2. This is not the place to come for frat party tips. Nothing along the lines of “We’re having a kegger tonight, which beer will get us all drunk for cheap?” or “What’s a good jungle juice recipe?” Feel free to discuss microbrews or homebrewing recipes: the more refined facets of beer.

3. Say more than, “I love brand X of wine.” Tell us why you like it, what foods complement it well, how much it costs, where you can find it, etc. The more information you can give us, the better.

Any other suggestions? Any topics that would be good for a sticky? Perhaps homemade cocktail recipes? Let us know!
oh shi… i’d have to actually clean my cooktop if i were gonna take pics
the picture thread idea is good. I’d participate if I owned a digital camera. I’ll be sure to hot-link this forum whenever there’s a food thread in the main forums too
Thanks for the input, any more suggestions?

I think that I’ll make that picture thread as soon as I have time to make a decent meal. I’ve been swamped with work and school lately, so cooking has been shafted. However, if someone makes a picture thread, I can sticky it and we can keep it going from there.
i tried to make a thread a little while ago for someone to come up with the best dish using a certain ingredient.
i was gonna send the winner a prize too…
but it died in the ass & no-one participated, so…

maybe you could try a similar thing & sticky it? – just a suggestion…- i’ll volunteer to send the winner a jar of Vegemite from Australia.

sounds like fun – I’d rather have a sleeve of kingston’s biscuits though
(my sister lives in sydney)
i could do that…

but i feel its my duty to inflict Vegemite on an unsuspecting OT member living outside Australia.
I finally tried vegemite for the first time last night. Horrible, horrible stuff. Guess some things really ARE comfort foods.

That being said, I think a links page wouldn’t be a bad idea. Recipe sites, general cooking tips, etc. – this will help clear out some of the most common questions. (Like “I’m in college, what can I cook that’s good and cheap?”)
don’t be soft… Vegemite is a man’s food…
Fuck that, chili is a man’s food…vegemite is for the roos.
Although, if you wanted to be a real bastard, you could join the OT secret santa and send someone $35 worth of vegemite

If shipping wouldn’t be such a motherfucker from Oz, I’d do it
i wouldn’t mind seeing some thread with easy “geared for the poor college student” favorites from the OT crowd. i could use some help in the “eating regularly and well” department. can i get an amen?
culinary student checking in… any questions, feel free to ask
I’m a a culinary student at Johnson & Wales University, ask away!
can you cooking guys recommend any good recipe sites? Whenever I’m actually in the mood to cook something I end up spending an hour on google trying to find a recipe that I have the ingrediants for.

foodtv is usually good for me.
I’m going to be posting a different bbq recipe every day. They’re recipes I’ve taken/modified from other places, but I have used them all.
Here’s some serious thread ressurection: I know that we are supposed to manage cocktail recepies, or be more informative than “X is awesome for getting you smashed”, but could we post the generally known recipies for say Cosmos and other fun party drinks? Just wondering.
sticky thread on equipment, 1 for cookware, 1 for machines, 1 for knives and acccessories
