can you cook?

BumbleBeeMouth 01-24-2009 12:32 PM

im pretty good, i've got a good knack for flavour within certain cuisines, especially italian and indian

im less good at traditional cooking like pies and hotpots.

I can cook basic things but don't get much opportunity to do so or to try anything challenging. I would like to though.

hnibos 01-24-2009 02:04 PM

i can cook very basic meals. could do more if i tried i guess. too lazy tbh.

I think i am a good cook. Last night I made eggrolls that turned out pretty good and tonight I'm making angel hair with feta and sundried tomatos.

Eulogy 01-24-2009 02:45 PM

i just made and ate some tuna steaks.

this is all new to me. so far all i've done here is pasta, chicken breasts, and now the tuna. pretty hard to fuck those things up.

You'd be surprised.

I'd say pick one or the other unless you really like salty.

I'd say feta with fresh tomatoes, olive oil, and mushrooms maybe.

I'm pretty good but not pretty awesome so I will refrain from voting.

and since there is no sp_aced option I'm pretty much fucked

My lasagna (either spinach, veggie or bologna) is legendary. Everything else is acceptable at best.

ravenguy2000 01-24-2009 03:20 PM

I'm a good cook but sometimes my ambitions get ahead of my skills so I have pretty royal fuckups on a regular basis.

Also angel hair pasta makes me want to punch someone.

Trotskilicious 01-24-2009 03:34 PM

penne for the win

carapatricia 01-24-2009 03:53 PM

I think I can cook pretty well off-the-cuff for myself. I cook a lot actually but its basically the same exact thing with different sauces.

Chicken breasst or ahi tuna steak
Roasted Veggies
couscous or whole wheat pasta.

My cabinets are filled with seasonings and sauces tho, so at least even tho I am eating green beans, zucchini and squash every night with baked chicken or seared tuna, it can taste different so I'm not totally bored. I always keep truffle oil and chili oil on hand and tons of shallots and garlic. jars of chutney and asian chili pastes.

I always have Naan in the freezer too, so I think i'll make chicken korma tonight.

but other than that, i have tons of recipe books. I don't really know how to cook much else than what i wrote above without cheating.

Trotskilicious 01-24-2009 03:55 PM

i thought everybody used recipes just some people have them committed to memory

and whole wheat pasta grosssssssssssssssssssssssssssss

oh i love it.

I was such a cunt-y teenager I wouldn't ever let my mom teach me how to cook. I regret that, she's amazing- she can just throw things together and remember recipes and create her own great meals.

I am the only person in my house that knows how to cook at all, tho- i swear to god my roommates barely know how to use the microwave. pretty bad for 24-26 year olds.

better than new 01-24-2009 04:18 PM

I feel like if you can read you can cook. Obviously this excludes really difficult things, but the basics aren't too hard to figure out. I really want to get my Italian Grandmother to show me some of the "harder" meals because her food is just awesome. That being said, I feel like it's generally just laziness/not wanting to pay for real ingredients that keeps me from making decent meals for myself. Ramen noodles = 3 minutes on the stove whereas lasagna is kind of a production.

JokeyLoki 01-24-2009 04:31 PM

I try alot of new recipes, but some of the best stuff I've made, I've just sort of thrown together willy-nilly.

i've also made this mistake. now i need to read up on all the basics i could have learned from watching my mother

why were computer games more important to me than that

ohnoitsbonnie 01-24-2009 08:03 PM

I hate recipes

vanilla 01-24-2009 08:07 PM

i like to bake.

Luke de Spa 01-24-2009 08:27 PM

probably the best thing i've made so far, although my pizza is improving

i want to try this dough recipe

Trotskilicious 01-24-2009 08:57 PM

i could probably make pizza if i had a mixer

Elvis The Fat Years 01-24-2009 09:02 PM

Trotskilicious 01-24-2009 09:04 PM

slunken 05-11-2014 06:04 PM

MusicMan4 05-11-2014 06:20 PM

slunken 05-11-2014 06:41 PM

I knife I knife I knife

The exploding boy 05-11-2014 07:14 PM

My family, all very great cooks. One grandmother taught cooking for a living, the other had 18 children so she learned a thing or two.... my dad, my mom, my brother, great cooks. I learned enough from them to be able to cook pretty good food but can't be bothered. The shame of my family I am. Well that's one reason I am anyway....

killtrocity 05-11-2014 07:33 PM

dis nigga fux up rice a roni

Bread Regal 05-11-2014 07:42 PM

i surprise myself sometimes.

Bread Regal 05-11-2014 07:47 PM

like, i made french onion soup a couple months ago and i was fucking amazed that i did it.

really, though, i credit it to the recipe itself. if the recipe is well written and you've got the right kitchenware, it's pretty hard to fuck up a dish. for everyday things, i can improvise a dish pretty easily with stuff around the house. it just depends on if i'm wanting soup, pasta, stir fry, whatever.

Mooney 05-11-2014 08:07 PM

i can cook a few things quite well. pizza making has become a hobby of mine over the past six months or so. dough from scratch, 00 flour cut with AP, three day cold ferment in the fridge. i'll make my own sauce sometimes with san marzano's, but they are retardedly expensive. i hand stretch the dough in the air, but don't toss it because its mostly for show, and gets flour all over my condo.

i'll make fresh pasta from scratch sometimes, but it really is a lot of work.

SuckSuckStyle 05-11-2014 08:20 PM

I've become pretty good at asian food. my fried noodles/rice/veg don't taste like a white person made them anymore. can do a decent curry as well.

my strengths are in mexican, vegan, and comfort food. my mac and cheese is legend. can make a perfect omelette.

i'm not an amazing cook but i like what i cook and other people like what i cook and i can cook many different things. so that's good.
