Hey, Got Blaze...
While Fun Bunch is finishing soaking up the Puerto Rican sun, enjoying Arroz con Gandules and hot brunette escorts, I'm curious as to what three ingredients you're leaning towards for your nominations in the March Chopped Challenge?...

Crazy stuff has happened here over the years. List your most memorable examples here.
For instance, I can't exactly remember who it was that got banned in a very heated and drunken stupor about food north of I-10. That was a fun thread.
Let's bring back some fun memories. Whatcha got?
| Food and Drink Board|| Restaurants you have tried because of Tiger Droppings - Degas on 2/26/14 at 11:46 pm|
Recently I mentioned to someone that I may have tried 50 different food establishments just by reading about them on this site, so I thought it would be interesting for us to toss around some names of places that we've tried due to hearing about them on TD F&DB.
It can be good or bad, cost effect...
| Food and Drink Board|| Strange request - Where can I purchase white gloves for a formal dinner service? - Degas on 2/25/14 at 10:24 am|
It's a last minute idea, so online ordering is out. I'm trying to think of anywhere local, perhaps Bed Bath & Beyond, local hardware store, anything really, I just can't think of anywhere offhand.

| Food and Drink Board|| Let's talk asparagus - Degas on 2/9/14 at 1:30 pm|
I've fond childhood memories of pulling off on a roadside and cutting wild asparagus, and recently, I've seen some absolutely gorgeous asparagus in stores for $1.99/lb (recently they've been around five bucks a pound), so I thought it would be worth kicking around some ideas for these lovely gems.
| Food and Drink Board|| Grappa - Degas on 2/9/14 at 10:59 am|
I need to be enlightened as to why anyone would want to consume this stuff. Drinking something that smells/tastes like turpentine is not my thing. Some say that it helps with digestion, but it sure burns like hell going down. Obviously I'm not a fan. Besides a hangover, what am I missing?...
| Food and Drink Board|| Campbell's Tomato Bisque - Is it? - Degas on 2/7/14 at 1:13 pm|
I had reason to think back to my childhood when I was allowed to select a can of Campbell's soup for my afternoon lunch, and I although it wasn't my favorite (best enjoyed with crackers though), [link=(http://www.campbellfoodservice.com/details.aspx?code=1083)]Tomato Bisque[/link] was one of the opt...

I began with about a tablespoon of miso paste and dissolved that with some hot water, chopped some green onions and cilantro.
Next, I'm adding bone in duck confit, previously cooked sous vide (with rosemary, sage and thyme) fo...

Last time I was there I enjoyed the more upscale raw bar Sea Change, Butcher & the Boar for killer charcuterie, and also had some good sausage and craft suds at the casual New Bohemia if that gives you an idea what I'm looking for. I may make it to St. Paul, where I've enjoyed the Happy Gnome for a ...

| Food and Drink Board|| Let's do chicken three ways - Degas on 11/17/13 at 11:47 am|
(That would be an interesting title if this were the OT)
First, let's start some stock with the pieces that most throw away, being the carcass, heart, gizzard, neck and wing tips. You can make some liquid gold from virtually nothing.

It's not a matter of IF, but WHEN I purchase a Food Saver. There are a wide array of models out there, and I'm looking for any feedback as far as pros, cons, regrets, etc. from your personal model. I'm looking at the 2800 which has bag roll storage, a bag cutter, and one press buttons. It's $120 aft...
