"Cawkasin Bread".... cawkasin?! So, I'm thinking... somebody did something from some cultural recipe book. Nope! Cawkasin... caucasian!!! Caucasian Bread = White bread!
Mr Fender... guitar player, I assume?! Welcome to ChefTalk!   The question you asked is a VERY loaded one! I am a high school culinary instructor and I will tell you that I hear your question asked very often. As I just posted to another potential culinary school attendee, the best way to make a decision is to make an informed decision. Talk to current students. Visit the schools. Really watch what is going on. Is there active instruction? Are students engaged in...
Hi, Graciee! There has been a lot of debate over the years about AI experiences. Just lately, a few of the schools have or are slated to close. That can be an indicator of something not so good. My advice? Visit. Talk to current students. Talk to grads. Opinions over the 'net can be very mixed in intent. Get some good, honest insight from people you encounter directly tied to the programs. What works well for one student may not work as well for another. Make an informed...

Dave Matthews' Crush is the muffled hum from the speakers safe on the inside in the warmth, shielded from our outside dining room. The backdrop is the infrequent twinkle of the...
Very Andy Kaufman-esque! Cotton-lined toilet seat covers on the plane?!
All well-made points. I often can't wrap my brain, small as it is, around spending several thousand dollars on a knife when there are certainly respectable versions that ultimately do the same thing as their more expensive counterparts; they, when handled by somebody with some skill, reduce the surface area of a food item to more manageable parts suitable for cooking. Is that not the purpose of knives?   Very nice pictures to show the comparison and contrast. This is...
Ouch! I'm even getting it from Pete! I see Greg has gotten to you. So let me just say this, again:   GO STEELERS!    
I'm from Pittsburgh... GO STEELERS!
Wow! Has anybody ever seen http://tinyurl.com/23urfrn (My Strange Addiction' Focuses on Unusual Obsessive Behavior Bizarre Uses of Blow Dryers, Ventriloquism and Toilet Paper)?   And I don't say that to poke fun or be mean. But, some people do some.. uh.... interesting stuff:   Lori Broady could not live without her hair dryer.
