I will be in Atlanta/Buckhead area for work this weekend. Where should I eat? I have one-two meals in the area. Anything I shouldn't miss? I was thinking of Flip Burger by Richard Blaise or maybe Woodfire Grill. (Top Chef themed, ha). Are they worth it? Anything better?
My Wusthof blades need to be sharpened. I can either take them to a store in NYC to get sharpened or I can buy a home sharpener. Is a home sharpener a good idea? I figure that it costs about $7 a per knife to get them sharpened at the store while Wusthof brand sharpener is only $20. What do you think about the Wusthof sharpener or should I get a different one, if I go that route?
I have the day off in NYC and I want to eat somewhere awesome for lunch. Not necessarily a full meal, but a great sandwich should suffice. I've been to Parm, DeEspana, Mile End, Van Horn's, Cheeky's, Tiny's as well as some others. Yup, this is a vague request but I figured I'd ask anyway.
I am having a few friends over for dinner this weekend and I would like to make something that is "fall-ish" and good for a medium-sized crowd. I would to braise something. Right now, I'm thinking about maybe a stuffed pork loin or short ribs. Any suggestions?
I've taken a few great classes at ICE in NYC, but they are a little pricy. Can some one recommend some cheaper classes? I'm looking to do maybe a cheese course, a wine course, or an Italian class.
I live in a small place in NYC. My gas stove does not have a vent or a hood of any type. I've now set off the smoke alarm 3x this week by cooking things that would never set the alarm off in other places. There are no usable windows in my kitchen/living room. We have one window and that window opens into the apartment's garbage room so I will not open it in fear of odors or vermin. I have a small fan going but that also isn't doing it.
Any suggestions on how to stop smoking myself out?
I am interested in putting a dry rub on a steak this evening and tossing it on the grill. Any recommendations for a tasty (but not spicy, please) rub combo?
I read somewhere or saw on TV that the jalapeño peppers that we commonly see have been bred to be less spicy than they are naturally. Has anyone else heard this or can offer some insight? Through experience, it seems that jalapeño flesh (excluding the seeds) aren't as spicy as I once thought. Is it me or the pepper?
What do you usually make for dinner after work that you'd consider healthy? I cannot look at any more roasted/baked chicken.
It doesn't have to be ultra healthy (e.g. lettuce) but not mac and cheese, either. I am just looking for interesting "lighter" suggestions.
I have a few friends coming into NY today and they want to grab lunch in Chinatown. Any good suggestions on where to eat? I think we would prefer a regular restaurant versus dim sum place as dim sum seems intimidating since I am not super familiar with the menu items.
We are leaving soon and I just thought to ask here.
