Internet Trolling: Grab Bag edition!

I do a fair bit of web surfing. I ride the big waves like the New York Times or Chowhound, and occaisonally find myself in the backwaters of I-am-bored.com or 4chan. Othertimes, I’m taken by my browser to darker, more disturbing waters – where Lara Croft has an affinity for multiple appendages. I;m then reminded of Rule 34 of the internet.

So on these surfing trips, I came across a few humorous and interesting pages I liked so much, I took time out of my super busy schedule writing recipes for a new Gastropub and wrote this post. For you.

Now don’t you feel special?

Going Out To Dinner With Food-Loving Friend A Huge Ordeal I’m not like that; but I can be if I’m out to dinner with another foodie. Then it’s just a masochistic gripefest.

The Pasta Naming game: I got 5 wrong. Don’t tell anyone.

The Ancient Egyptians invented pie crusts. Score another one for Egyptian Food History!

17 Best Picture Food Scenes: Kinda reads like an advertisement for the DVDs, but these list 17 scenes from 17 Oscar winning Best Pictures. Kinda pointless, really.Shouldn’t have linked it; but I wrote this line already.

How Panko is really made: Electrocuted bread. That’s how they do it in factories, anyway. and a coarse grain. This video will demystify the panko and should give you an idea of how you can make a viable substitute at home. Clue: High hydration, hi salt, hi yeast slow cooked dough. (Note to self – NHCIA test kitchen episode!)

Cooking Time: 3 minutes.
