Poll: How Picky Are You About Coffee?

I really like Whole Foods' options of coffee; I get it grinded there then stick it in the freezer, and use my little french press. I just choose whatever variety, depending on price. I prefer making my own coffee in the morning - it tastes way better, I never have to use sugar, and I save a boatload of money.

Win Tickets to the 'Potlikker Film Festival'

Tampapo, of course! I'm a total ramen and Japanese culture/history nut. It was the perfect blend of food worship and embodied a lot of the hardworking Japanese ethic of reaching absolute perfection which was very reflective of the time period.

Also, I loved the little scene where Tampapo's son goes into the fancy restaurant with the well-dined bums and make omu-rice.... total whimsy.

High quality, good basic 'cooking set' for recent college grad

Hi everyone,

So I just graduated college early and am moving into my first apt. I wanted to know any recommendations for high quality basic cookware set I can ask for Christmas - pans, sauce pans, stock pot, etc. It'll be a combo bday/xmas gift so I guess it can sort of pricey, but not too pricey, if you know what I mean. Figure I'd ask the serious eaters first!
