Taste Test: The Best Frozen Pork Dumplings

@Mark E
I had the same complaint about their bottled Caesar Salad dressing taste test.
They said the tasters liked the ones with the most anchovy flavor and only rated those highly. Since I don't like anchovies none of those reported appealed to me and I could only cross off the recommended ones from my list and had no information about ones I might like.

The Food Lab: The Best Caesar Salad

I had table made Caesar Salad at the Brown Derby in LA in the 50's. NO ANCHOVIES!

Recipes From Chiang Mai: Larb Muang Moo (Northern Thai-Style Chopped Pork Salad)

Interesting, I've had the larb at the Wat Lao Sayettha Temple and noticed the bitter taste in the raw version, but not the cooked version. I wonder if they leave the bile out of the cooked version or if cooking tames the bitterness.

Tales of a Cookbook Writer: What if a Dish Makes Me Gag?

I too couldn't stand cooked salmon until about a month ago when I tried it baked low and slow. 250F for 20 minutes for a thin fillet. It tastes like uncooked salmon with a very soft texture. Try SteamyKitchen or Epicurious and search for baked salmon for recipes.

This Week at Serious Eats World Headquarters

I'm enjoying the more in depth stories, good job Serious Eats team.

However, I'm missing the community in "Serious Eats: A Food Blog and Community" That was a big part of what made Serious Eats special for me. If they've decided to go for a different audience I can understand, but I still feel sad. (And I'll still stick around, just won't be here as often.)

Also I feel like there has been some lack of transparency such as discontinuing Favorites without notification.
