| Food and Drink Board|| Beef Shank w/ pic - Degas on 4/4/14 at 6:18 pm|
Now that I've plunged headfirst into sous vide cooking, I'm constantly looking for new things to try out. I came across a beef shank which is a cut I've never purchased before. (Cocido De Res on the label). I seasoned them with Montreal seasoning then seared in a cast iron pan. Pulled them out and a...

Just curious if it bugs anyone else in the least to see misspellings on the menu at a finer restaurant, or at least one that represents a certain cuisine.
For instance, the name Osso Buco will almost always be misspelled with two "c"s (Osso Bucco). Little Village, Cafe Bella and Nino's, who repr...

Crisp apples, cherries, smoked chubs, fresh corn on the cob, Bell's beer, deep dish pizza, maple syrup pie...all things I miss from my time in the North, but what I'm really craving lately is pheasant. I haven't had a good pheasant dish in quite a while.
Just curious if others here have had this ...

So I'm chatting last night with a guy who runs one of the [link=(http://www.elpasomex.com/)]El Paso Mexican Grills[/link] and he mentioned out of the blue that El Paso will be taking over the Applebee's on Sherwood Forest in Baton Rouge. I found it odd because their parking lot always seems packed (...

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?

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...

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.

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?...
