    ISO help/advice on purchasing a boning knife

    I´m looking for a boning knife for my grill-obsessed son. I´ve looked on Amazon, but I´d like to see some more options. The Wusthof are very good - but very pricey. Any suggestions, guys? I´m currently in Cincinnati, so getting the knife here is not a problem.

    E-mail notifications

    I get notifications on my e-mail every time I get a reply to a post. I´m on the forum every single day, so the mails are really a nuisance; they only fill my inbox with unwanted stuff. How do I eliminate the notifications on my e-mail account? Karadekoolaid

    Was I here before?

    Hyderabad Eggplant Dish

    Last week I commented on an Indian eggplant/aubergine dish which is to die for! It´s called Baingan ka Salaan (Eggplant with a Sauce!) and is typical of the region around Hyderabad. This dish is HOT, so unless you´re a chile freak like me, you may want to cut down on the chile peppers. It also...

    Hi from Caracas, Venezuela

    I gave up Corporate America in 2001 and opened a Food business: conserves, pickles, chutneys, jellies - you name it, I bottled it. I also followed my passion for cooking and started giving courses, classes, doing lunches, doing events, and so on. The biggest event (so far) was a Gala Dinner for...

    Lazy Saturday Salad

    Quite often, I'll eat a plate full of salad for lunch.

    What is your favourite Olive Oil?

    For once, I'm going to ask a serious question. Having just experienced 2 Xmas bazaars, I was left with the distinct feeling that everyone looks for something NEW. 3 items were particularily successful; a hot garlic sauce, an Indian condiment called Kasundi, and a neat little concoction I...

    Global Obesity

    I've just answered a white vs brown rice post in which an author made what seemed to be an off-the-cuff comment... which was very relevant. Whilst not wanting to get "serious" in this wonderful forum, I think our next challenge as foodies/ chefs/wannabe chefs/ gourmets/ parents is here...
