Gas station nachos, fill the tray with that fake cheese goo and scoop a lot on each chip. It has a high price though, tears my innards up!
New Orleans cuisine is in the top 3, IMO.
I began by giving 5 or 10, whichever I had on hand. I started to get little gifts instead (like nail polish, a little purse, a boa for dress up play, etc) because mine never wanted to spend their money. They never ask or want anything, even as teenagers. My daughters favorite gift is still yarn so she can knit. I swear they were born 90 year olds.
I'm constantly amazed by how prevalent alcohol and drug abuse is among chefs, I can understand how they could be easily abused to handle the stress and long hours. Every chef I have worked under or with has had substance issues, I thank God my easygoing personality hasn't led me down that path. It destroys lives
Hollandaise is quite easy, it is essentially streaming butter into warm egg to form an emulsion. Do a search here, there are lots of threads on the topic. Don't feel scared
I work in the corporate world, the benefits are great, match up to 4% and good pay for my area. The pay is 10-20k more than what I'd see in the private sector. Unfortunately that makes me middle management and am told to do conflicting things by the same person depending upon who is putting pressure on him. Very frustrating.
Love whole seed mustards, Maille and Pommery are my favorites
Mimi, what do you put in your potato salad?
I love bechamel in a seafood lasagna, sometimes I make Mornay as well
Beef tongue is sorely underused, have even had it ground and tubed up like a sausage and deep fried, delicious. Crawfish and oysters are also underused but only because they're my favorites 😀
