Inside the Secret World of Super-Premium Spanish Jamon Iberico

Remander I love you.

How I Built a Barbecue Restaurant in Brooklyn: Standing Before the Community Board

The writing is great, but from a practical perspective it seemed like you had a really successful career before you decided to pick a business with low profit margins and a super-high failure rate. That part I am interested in most as to why this became a PASSION.

Lunch Hack: Use a Pizza Wheel To Chop Your Salad Directly in the Bowl

@ J-Kenji Lopez-Alt
I don't mean that I'm always on a budget, sometimes my bf gets a good job and even then I grew up wealthy I just find this website went from being a fascinating edgy (int he good sense) cosmopolitan, intellectual upgrade from chow.com and all other food content available on the internet ( I read it every day of course) to what seems to larger be an echo chamber for what foods mostly white, sometimes asian aspiring yuppies like to eat in hip neighborhoods in NYC. I mean if that's what you want, have fun, its your blog, just know its not up to par for the articles you used to write from 2008-2010 many of which I have saved and treasure.
I still think you should do a month where you live on a diet of food stamps (especially in expensive san francisco) instead of that elitist vegan month that is always the only time I avoid articles on here. Also, we all know you must have fired Will Gordon because he was too caustic in his wit for your pristine site. He was well loved around here. And bring back the United States of Pizza, and Chicago coverage, and hire a decent D.C. field writer. Hell, I live here and would do it for you for free but I know you hate me and don't recognize I'm trying to give you (mostly) constructive criticism here with a dash of hateful nostalgia.
Hope you read this all.

Lunch Hack: Use a Pizza Wheel To Chop Your Salad Directly in the Bowl

Why even write an article about this? Why not just say "hey if you want you can use a pizza cutter to shop your salad in a metal bowl". I swear Kenji has just given up on this site now. I miss when Ed ran things.

Hey Chef, What Can I Do With Mint?

The gardening season is not near an end in the majority of the world. Not everyone lives in NYC. This site's fanaticism about NYC borders on being the cultural geographic version of geocentrism.

New York's Best Bagel Comes From a Department Store. Here's How It's Made.

@ Max I was referring to the bagel basket. I feel like it would probably come with cream cheese and two bagels and for 9 dollars that feels pricey to me, but I'm not a New Yorker so maybe its par for there. I just feel like this site would be better served by offering a step-by-step guide to how to make your OWN bagels (or even Bialys!) from scratch the old boil and bake way. I made them that way once and I've never had better.

New York's Best Bagel Comes From a Department Store. Here's How It's Made.

This reminds me of why my handle here is what it is. Going to Barney's....for an overpriced bagel. Fools truly easily are parted from their money.

Where to Eat in Hyde Park, Chicago

Didn't you public almost this exact same article a year or two ago? Wow you guys really do just recycle content now. Its buzzfeed with good food photography. R.I.P. the good old days of this site.

The Best Drinks We Drank in August

The link didn't work for me.

The Best Things We Ate in August

I really wish you would list the prices you paid for these items when you publish these lists.

The Real Reason Sugar Has No Place in Cornbread

Is this a paid advertisement for Anson Mills? Did they receive compensation for their participation in this article? What is this site's policy on this?

Chef Matthew Kirkley Has Some Crazy-Awesome Fish in His Kitchen at L2O

Is this a paid advertisement for this restaurant?

The Best Things We Ate in July

Wow you guys must have really huge food budgets! I'm jealous!

Cook the Book: 'The Nourished Kitchen' by Jennifer McGruther

Kenji's NYC Bucket List: What I'll Miss Most

I'm glad to be rid of you quite honestly from our fine city. That line about sipping Sazeracs could not have been more pretentious so I think San Francisco with its gentrified yuppie atmosphere will suit you perfectly.

Chicken and Egg From 'Coi' (Part 2)

How many people are realistically going to cook eggs like that on a regular basis and make a chicken stock from scratch and own all that tech beyond well, food bloggers and chefs?

Damon Gambuto's 14 Most Memorable Burgers in Los Angeles and Beyond

Damon where is my 20 dollars back for that awful grease bomb at Gruner you waxed eloquently about a few years ago?

Where to Go for Happy Hour in Washington, DC

There are lots of awesome less upscale/hipster bars in D.C. that you left out.

Sunday Supper: Red Wine-Marinated, Roasted Beef Tenderloin With Herb-Horseradish Cream

Any chance you could fit a more affordable and healthy recipe in for next week please?

The Food Lab: Bringing Home General Tso's Chicken

You NAILED it with the description of mcdonalds nuggets with sweet n sour sauce, the only way I like them

Inside the Wonderful Restaurant Stuck in a Tiny Coffee Shop

14 dollars for a plate of carrots served to you in a coffee shop? NYC is crazy!

17 Tropically-Inspired Desserts To Make Right Now

At least we don't have to life in Africa where its tropical (mostly everywhere) all the time.

Is "Serious Eats Dating" a joke or parody or what?

Sorry gay men people probably love it too. lol I'm a gay dude

The Best Bites at The Clam, Mike Price and Joey Campanaro's West Village Restaurant

An Avant-Garde seafood shack? At those prices? Only in such silly rich places as Manhattan or parts of L.A. with extreme money.

Italian Reflections of Bensonhurst at Il Colosseo

Lovely, warm review and nice to see some places with reasonable prices that aren't fast food/ fast-casual or like one of those places that JUST serves french fries.
