    I can vouch for his taco joint in San Diego, damn good food. Hopefully they're able to open up again when it's safe.

    I feel kind of weird about dunking on laughs because they're involuntary sounds.

    I was playing Civ VI with my roommate and his gf this past weekend and we were using Steam voice chat. I kept dunking on myself because I kept hearing the obnoxious wheezing end of my shitty weasel laugh each time and then I had to apologize for subjecting them to my laugh, which then caused me to apologize because it’s dumb and juvenile to apologize for laughing which caused me to laugh and then I heard myself again which caused me to apologize for my laugh which, upon remembering that it’s stupid to apologize for your own laugh caused me to apologize, then laugh, then double apologize, and before I knew it it was five A M and I was dead.

    Also, I made Pineapple Chicken Thai Fried Rice and it came out much better than I expected. Also I made soooo much I still have 2-3 full meals worth.

    Just I find it odd they went from a ASMR kind of thing to now a step by step program with talking like everyone else does

    I fucking haaaaaaaaaaaate the shirt he's wearing! Why do you have a shirt with your stage name in katakana on it!? Why the fuck does it cut off in the middle of one word and go to the next line!? You look like a fucking idiot!

    I'm actually okay with him? But, like, that's me and Chef John? So I get it?
    I'll stop now?

    I straight up cannot watch Chef John's videos, the cadence of his voice makes we want to hurl myself out a window.

    For a while I thought they were the same dude.

    Is Chef John a toilet with a burner on it so you can cook while you poop?

    Chef John is good.
    He talks like that because he's a culinary school teacher and the constant rhythm and cadence of his voice makes him easier to follow.

    Y'all can't appreciate Chef John (the one who talks weird) until you open 9 different food-wishes videos in their own browser tabs, turn your computer volume up to max, set all 9 to about the middle of the video, and then set all 9 of them to play at once.

    Sit back, and understand what psychosis sounds like.

    I understand why he does it, I still don't like it, it reminds me of some teachers I had

    I feel like he's talking down to me

    Dude's the chillest guy, I think if anything he'd apologize profusely like Ronnie if you told him his cadence made you feel that way ;p

    I am not here to dunk on Chef John, it is merely a fact that watching his videos is a deeply uncomfortable experience for me.

    That is hardly his fault.

    I'm not here to dunk on Chef John either, but his cadence, voice and mannerisms really reminds me of several teachers I had, who were very nice and warm and helpful, if you understood them and respected their station or something

    If you didn't understand or didn't respect them, they became adversarial rather than helpful

    He's great but his rhythm of talking is definitely in the "oh god you're not following how to rattle off a phone number" and it just feels... I have anxiety when he talks like he's talking something up then I get it taken away from me suddenly.

    not a doctor, not a lawyer, examples I use may not be fully researched so don't take out of context plz, don't @ me

    I often make pizza on friday nights and since getting a pizza stone for christmas and a stand mixer a little later I've been having great success using Alton Brown's recipe.

    I measure everything on a digital scale in grams, I follow the recipe. I always split the dough in half, proof half in the oven for 4-5 hours for dinner the same night, then the other half in the fridge for that slow ferment a couple nights later.

    It's pretty much always been great since I started this system.

    Tonight, though, for whatever reason the dough is all fucked up. It's SUPER sticky and almost no gluten developed. It didn't window pane, as soon as I started pulling it to form the pizza it tore. I added a BUNCH of extra flour but it stayed mega sticky. I kneaded it in the mixer for another 10 minutes but it never really developed the normal level of gluten.

    WHY IS DOUGH SO FICKLE

    I bought some Buitoni red sauce because I ran out of san marzanos and didn't want to wait for my shipment and this shit is garbage. It's supposed to be a tomato sauce, and it has as much onion in it as tomato. I added some tomato paste and basil and hit it with my immersion blender to try to drown out the onion, but to no avail. I don't think it's fixable.

    I've been binge watching Food Wishes videos for about three weeks now. Just went to YouTube, opened up the *uploads" list and hit play all.

    It's comfort for me. Cooking shows are comfort for me, but since I can't just put early 2000's Food Network on in the background all the time anymore, this is what I've got.

    Btw, three weeks will take you from 2020 back to mid 2015. Give or take a bit.

    Do you have access to the Great British Baking show? It's on Netflix here in the US and god I love it. Everyone is just so nice, but still competitive. I love that they'll help each other out. I get the feeling from the couple seasons I watch that people want to win on their merits, not because someone else screwed up, for the most part.

    Also, maybe check out the Master Class subseries from the original seasons. Those are some episodes done after the season itself, in which the two judges walk you through their versions of the challenges they posed to the contestants.

    Yeah that show is just fantastic purely for the comradery between the contestants. On things like Chopped the chefs talk about how they're Big Shit at Big Shit Restaurant and they're gonna take the prize over everyone else while remarking when someone screws up that it makes things easier for them. Great British Bakeoff they're all "amateurs" who could probably run circles around most professionals and despite that if one of them does something like accidentally drop their cake to the floor they'll pitch in and help them clean it up so that person can get back to their work as soon as possible.

    As presented I think GBB shows that you can have competition without toxicity. That kind of winning is sorely underrepresented, especially here in the US.
