Being secretly petty in the face of “generosity” isn’t easy, but in streets these dangerous one must learn to survive
I ALWAYS open the bottle of whatever someone brings and serve them a generous dose of it. That way, if they were dirt cheap, they regret it and are properly embarrassed. Unless they have no taste, in which case I’ll ask them to bring something specific that they can’t screw up. It’s also good to know which of your…
Root vegetables! I have so many in my drawers and don’t know what to do with them.
A whole bag of chili con carne.

I’ll ask for oxtail stew (Cuban style). I love it, but oxtail is too expensive to screw up.
Well we were 3 college aged men armed with a recipe off the internet and barely enough cooking skill to feed ourselves so I figure with the added temp control of the immersion cooker this should be very doable
Have you done fish yet? Something meaty like swordfish or salmon would be good.
Oh Nog could be good I guess. I’ve never tried to make it before though...

Rub the breast half (3-4 lbs) with oil, salt, pepper, and whatever other seasonings you want. Place on top of the onions, cover, and cook on HIGH for 3 hours. When…
