21 Halloween Candies We're Hoarding

Toblerone? What are you trick or treating at a Duty Free shop at the airport?

The Best Scotch to Buy on a Budget

My go-to "cheap" scotch is Bowmore Legend. Astor wine has it at just under $30. A nice, inexpensive Islay for everyday sipping

White IPA

Five minutes to make this recipe? Are you measuring out 6 ounces with a tear dropper?

Taste Test: Is Domestic Parmesan Cheese Worth Using?

@beetee81 - missed that line, thanks.

@Daniel - thanks for the additional details.

Taste Test: Is Domestic Parmesan Cheese Worth Using?

Can you give details on how you tasted it? Chunks of it? From the picture it looks like you shredded it on pasta but you don't describe it. Assuming you ate pieces of it and shredded it on pasta, was there a vast difference in scores between the two methods? I recall reading about prior tests tastes noting that the differences were much smaller when not eating it plain.

Ideas in Food vs. The Snickers Bar (or How to Make the Ultimate Snickers Pie)

@Ocean - you mean to tell me you ate your snickers at room temperature? oh the humanity. Just make sure to let the frozen snickers soften for a few minutes or you'll lose a tooth.

Ideas in Food vs. The Turkey Club Sandwich

@Kenji - I dig that but the result was a regular ole turkey sandwich. Nothing about it screams club. Its not reinterpreting a classic it using modern techniques, its deviating so far from it that nothing says club. No triple decker, no crunchy bacon. Maybe their starting premise that a turkey club is all about turkey and mayo set them up to fail or maybe the attempt to dramatically reinvent a club in the first place cause this (all a club really needs is a better cooked turkey).

If they "reinterpreted" a burger but sous vide and then searing a slab of filet mignon in bacon fat and covering with mornay sauce and topping it with a crouton (because they always felt a bottom bun "didn't contribute anything great that the other pieces already had" would you still consider that a burger?

Ideas in Food vs. The Turkey Club Sandwich

@Ocean - not sure why you are their biggest defender but either way, their opinion that "the two things define the turkey club are the turkey and the mayonnaise" make no sense to a rationale observer. If you ask 100 people on the street what in their mind defines a club, probably 99 of them will say three slices of bread and bacon. Turkey and mayo = club? That is like saying cheese and basil = pizza

Ideas in Food vs. The Turkey Club Sandwich

I woiuld've stuck with a triple-decker, its an iconic part of a club, otherwise you just have a normal turkey sandwich. Maybe rendered bacon and used the fat to fry/griddle the middle slice (and still toast the outside slices) to reinforce the smokey bacon flavor.

Manner Matters: Can I Bring My Own Tonic Water?

I don't like the bread, so I'm going to stop at the boulangerie and pick up a baguette on my way to the restaurant. And now that I think about it, the desserts are blah, so I'll pick up a few pastries too.

How I Built a Barbecue Restaurant in Brooklyn: The Trouble With Contractors

Don't forget, @Serious Eats Copy Editor is held against his will, forced to read a website he apparently hates and even forced to comment on articles. The horror he must go through being forced to repeated read these articles instead of navigating to some other site that he would enjoy.

How I Built a Barbecue Restaurant in Brooklyn: The Trouble With Contractors

@formz - Yes, lets criticize someone who after spending years chasing his passion and working on his cooking skills and had an ideal of what he was looking for because he didn't pour his "blood, sweat, and tears" into the fucking lighting fixtures. Man, people on this site can be insufferable.

Taste Test: 1 Day, 23 Pop-Tart Flavors

Toaster strudel = sophisticated pop tart. Haven't had one since high school put remember them fondly. Having to position the icing packet just so on the top of the toaster oven to make sure it melted enough to squeeze out and not get too liquidity.

Ideas in Food vs. S'mores: Meet the S'mores Cake

Wait, someone had written about a similar cake in the past? STOP THE PRESSES!!!

The Best Way to Store Vermouth

Great stuff. I'd be curious to see what happened from month 1-2 (or longer) with the refrigeration. Essentially how long you can reasonably keep a bottle in the fridge with little or no degradation. Also once it starts degrading (whether it is after 2 months or longer), how noticeable is it when mixed in cocktail vs. on its own.

Ideas in Food vs. Linguine alle Vongole: Part 1

Could you be more pretentious with "cryo-shucked clams?" Great work to make it simple to shuck clams by freezing them but lets drop the corny name and make it sound like a crazy recipe. Its an ingredient and a note on an easy way to shuck it. If you wanted steamed clams would you call it "vaporization cooked clams"?

The Food Lab: Slow-Smoked, 40-Ounce, Dry-Aged Porterhouse Steaks

@OHenn - I noticed few a typos and corrected.

"Throw those bones in your mouth and savor all that delicious, salty, crusty goodness for dessert"

What the Frappe? THIS is a Real Milkshake

@kmack - so there is a special extra cold refrigerator which stores the milk to be used only for milkshakes and a normal fridge for chocolate milk?

Manner Matters: Should You Tattle on Kids Sneaking Food?

Worst advice ever. Mind your own damn business and stop projecting your issues/insecurities onto this 8 yr old girl. You know who sneaks food? every damn kid in the world

How to Grill a T-Bone Steak

#1 Steak Dad... so you think you're better than me?????

How Katz's Deli Makes Their Perfect Pastrami

@Wilfrid - agreed. Bread is merely an edible napkin to keep my fingers reasonably clean.

A Basic Introduction to the Salty, Spicy World of Mexican Snacks

Takis are TERRIBLE. Now, cacahuetes japoneses are definitely a must buy when down in Mexico. A few bags of those and Hot Nuts (plus cerveza) are always among the first purchases
