    VIDEOShortly before the Fourth of July weekend I was faced with a barbecue emergency. I had already defrosted a Turkey and started brining it in preparation for smoking it. However, Target had a great sale on baby back pork ribs and I couldn't resist especially since a lot more people than expected were going to show up at my July 4 barbecue party. So how to cook both smoked turkey AND baby back ribs? The answer was sous vide. I didn't have enough room on my smoker to cook both at the same time so my solution was to sous...

She is trending on the internet and yet no one knows how she looks, nor has she come forth to claim her many many...

The five herbs below were gathered for their vast range of medicinal, superstitious, and culinary attributes thousands of years ago in ancient Greece, and they are still used today. Herbs can be found growing wild all across Greece, with their scents perfuming the air, and they are particularly well-suited to the country’s mountain slopes and green fields.

    An Arizona man has used the sweltering desert heat of his home state to reportedly cook burgers and steaks — and even bake a cake — inside his 200-degree car. Joe Brown, from Phoenix, has attracted millions of viewers to his unconventional cooking show on TikTok. The 20-year-old’s culinary experiments began in March 2020, as the coronavirus pandemic forced many people his age back home for lockdown. Brown started by using the roof of his home as an environmental oven before shifting his trials to his car in April this year.

    The world's top palm-oil producer announced that it would ban exports of the commodity starting on Thursday, sending the prices of edible oils soaring.

Palm oil is used for cooking and for the production of thousands of consumer products, including biscuits, detergents, and lipsticks.In a video statement on Friday, Indonesian President Joko Widodo said the move was designed to bring down domestic palm-oil prices and ensure domestic food availability in the wake of global food inflation. "I will monitor and evaluate...

    Indonesia, the world’s largest exporter of cooking oil, will reduce exports of edible oils as a domestic shortage sparks panic hoarding among households, a sign of rising protectionism around the world as countries deal with record-high food prices, according to Bloomberg. Trade Minister Muhammad Lutfi announced new rules Wednesday for palm oil exporters to increase domestic shipment volumes from 20% to 30% to ensure local consumers have access to affordable cooking oil. The move by the Indonesian government comes as dwindling cooking oil supplies has unleashed record high prices. Togar Sitanggang, vice chairman of the Indonesian Palm Oil Association (Gapki),...

    VIDEOI've been hearing about it but I finally got a sous vide. Inexpensive since I don't need all the bells and whistles such as pairing with my phone so I can operate it remotely which I don't understand since I have to be there to place the vacuum sealed meat in the container.Here is my first attempt at using the sous vide in which I cook corned beef. I had a few minor rough patches which almost inevitably happens when you use a new piece of equipment. After a couple of tries I got the timer set right and I...

    VIDEOThe problem when cooking bacon is that it heats up too fast. The result is that it can often be quite brittle and lacking in flavor. The best way to resolve this problem is to SLOOOOOW cook the bacon in water as you can see in this video. The result is not only bacon in which the flavor is highlighted but with a great texture. Once you try this water method of cooking bacon you won't go back to your old way of cooking bacon again.

    Abstract Background: The lung cancer incidence in Chinese women is among the highest in the world, but tobacco smoking accounts for only a minority of the cancers. Epidemiologic investigations of lung cancer among Chinese women have implicated exposure to indoor air pollution from wok cooking, where the volatile emissions from unrefined cooking oils are mutagenic. Purpose: This study was conducted to identify and quantify the potentially mutagenic substances emitted from a variety of cooking oils heated to the temperatures typically used in wok cooking. Methods: Several cooking oils and fatty acids were heated in a wok to boiling, at temperatures...

Vicarious food, so completely calorie and guilt free. Starting with a report back on last Sunday’s diversion, the vinegar free refrigerator pickles. I tasted them after 2 days as the recipe said you could and found them to be a bit meh. Then they got lost and forgotten in...

    VIDEOSince the combination of guajillo marinade and achiote marinade worked so well for smoked chicken leg quarters, I decided to try the same thing for an entire turkey for the July 4 weekend. This was a trial run for Thanksgiving so if it works, I will be serving up smoked Red Turkey for Thanksgiving this year.The recipe is below. In the video I cooked it a bit too long so it is best to cook it breast side down for an hour and then breast side up for another hour and a half. At that point check the temperature with...

    HEALTH bosses have confirmed they are facing an outbreak of the “eye-bleeding fever” after four people died of the suspected disease in weeks. Uganda’s health ministry has today finally admitted it is facing the risk of a large-scale explosion of the viral hemorrhagic fever (VHF). VHF causes victims to suffer a burning fever before beginning to bleed from orifices including their eyes, anuses and mouths. It comes after a girl, nine, was reportedly killed by the infection Uganda, and three people died in neighbouring South Sudan of similar symptoms.

    Bread doesn’t get any faster, easier or simpler than this. There are no special ingredients or equipment needed. Just a few minutes in a skillet on the stove and you can have fresh hot bread for sandwiches or to serve with dinner any time of the day without heating the house up with the oven. My Granny would usually make this for lunch if all the breakfast biscuits got gobbled up in the morning. In the days before we all lived air conditioned housed, we didn’t turn the oven on in the middle of the day during Summer. This skillet...

    We all remember the endless hours spent in our school classrooms learning about declensions, trigonometry or the French future perfect tense. But it turns out that adults really wish they had been taught practical life skills such as how to change a tire, write a CV or plaster over holes and cracks. Money worries headed up the top 20 list of what parents wish they had learned at school — namely how to save cash, advice on budgeting and how to invest. The survey of 1,000 parents revealed that how to cook everyday meals and how to start a business...

As I demonstrate in this video, when you separate out egg whites and then recombine them with the yolks, it results in incredibly fluffy omelets. Try preparing your omelets this way and they will taste like they were prepared by a professional chef at a fancy restaurant.

    An Italian mafia fugitive who has been evading police since 2014 was arrested last week after police recognized him on YouTube. Marc Feren Claude Biart, who is wanted by police for allegedly trafficking cocaine, had started a cooking show on YouTube with his wife, BBC News reports. 53-year-old Biart hid his face in the videos – but did not hide his tattoos. Italian police saw the videos and arrested Biart in the small town of Boca Chica, Dominican Republic, they said in a statement, according to BBC News. Biart has been wanted by police for nearly six years for allegedly...

    VIDEOIn a previous video, I showed you how to smoke a maple syrup corned beef (link below). In this video, I take that incredibly delicious smoked maple corned beef and make a delicious Reuben sandwich. Since most of you, like me (at least for now), probably don't have a Panini press, I show you how to make it without the aid of that press. One important thing I learned was don't put your sandwich back on the plate on which you placed the sliced corned beef without wiping it dry first in order to avoid sandwich soginess. The second sandwich...

    In honor of Mr. Potato Head’s ‘transitioning’ - (from what-to-what I’m not exactly sure, as I’ve always understood potatoes to be, in Nature, self-pollinating and containing both sexes in one plant anyway) - I thought we’d do a thread on SPUDS this month. I like potatoes done certain ways, and despise them other ways. I like baked potatoes (with plenty of butter and sour cream), and home-made potato salad, mashed potatoes, scalloped, etc. I do NOT like potatoes cut up into soups, or store-bought potato salad (in the latter, the potatoes are always undercooked, and the salad is always strangely...
