@Kenji.. if you can find them, SnakClub makes some pretty awesome SPK knockoffs: http://www.snakclub.com/page.php?idc=4&tid=20

@selzoc Kevin Nealon once mentioned on Adam Carolla's podcast that he does the same thing, and calls it a "Movie Salad".

Anyone else think Gochujang is going to be the next Sriracha?

Can Yeast Really Keep You From Getting Drunk?

I think I'd rather be drunk than farting all night!

What's the Best Way to Brew Iced Coffee?

How about pouring a shot of espresso down an ice luge?

Bake the Book: The Model Bakery Cookbook

Sourdough everything!

Chain Reaction: We Try Subway's Flatizza

Watching superstar athletes pitch super fatty Subway sandwiches as fresh and healthy dining options bothers the hell out of me.

BTW that flatbread has more calories and fat in it than several styles of their regular bread.

Meyer Lemon Bitters

@androiduser if you have a homebrew supply shop near you, there is a good chance they carry dried bitter orange peel.

Roasted Carrots with Harissa and Crème Fraîche

Made something similar to this with what I had at home, which was Piri-Piri spice mix in olive oil and plain kefir instead of the crème fraîche and it was really delicious! Going to try it tonight with harissa.

Cook the Book: Roy Choi's 'L.A. Son'

The first time I took my Dad to Kogi!

Tasty Burgers and Terrible Service at Gordon Ramsay BurGR in Las Vegas

When I ate there all of the waitresses were ridiculously good looking. I think most Gordon Ramsay restaurants are known to hire very good looking staff. If I were a woman eating alone in a restaurant being waited on by a super attractive young female, I'd also probably come up with silly justifications to not eat there again. The food was delicious and not crazy expensive for Vegas prices.

Seriously Delicious Holiday Giveaway: Thermapen Thermometer

The first thing I would make is a properly made ice bath to calibrate the Thermapen. Then I'd make a big ass burger.

Cook the Book: 'The Artisan Jewish Deli at Home'

Pastrami on rye!

Ask a Cicerone: Your Favorite Pumpkin Beer

Hangar 24's Gourdgeous is worth hunting down.

We Need Your Help With the Best Thanksgivukkah Recipes!

I'd also whip up some Turkey Shmaltz and add that to the stuffing. I do not recommend making jelly-filled turkey.

We Need Your Help With the Best Thanksgivukkah Recipes!

Another vote for deep frying everything. Hanukkah is all about the oil. Maybe latkas fried in turkey fat would be good?
