I remember trout ice cream on Iron Chef.  It looked absolutely horrid. 

I had to go through that site to see what would make whoopie pies wicked.  I always think of whoopie pies as being a southern thing (although my campus bakery made them in college).

Well, I know whoopie cushions and cow pies, and while there is some overlap, none of it exactly whets the appetite. :)

Dr Dan wants to know if it's foodsafe to use a butane torch from the hardware store or if there's something special that needs to be purchased?

I assume that you mean to crisp the top of a foodstuff, yes.

Butane torch is fine. It's what we use for creme brulee's.

Fire is fire baby. :>

That's what I told him, but he wanted a "professional" opinion.

I love wine which is one reason we settled in Northern California, we're surrounded by maybe 500 wineries. For decades I've volunteered at some of the more electic and experimental small producers. One aspect that I'm still ignorant of is "legs."

"Legs" are the glycerine runners that form on the sides of your glass after swirling. Usually this occurs on first pouring when the more exotic ethers are still evaporating. Wine snobs tout "legs" as if it has some significance but I've never been able to associate a specific taste with "legs."

Some of the best wines I've had have "legs" so maybe there is a correlation.
Or perhaps my palate is just dead for that flavor. Has anyone else detected a flavor with "legs?" I ask because I just opened my last bottle of 1987 David Bruce "Los Osos" Chardonney. (The Bear) It was a huge wine, 16.7% alcohol, strong chardonney fruit and lots of oak, it was amber, not a lite yellow, with huge malolactate(sp?) crystals on the bottom of the cork. It also had "legs."

I do. If the converse where true does that change the question?

Nope. Just weird reading the present tense of location.

And it certainly doesn't help that you can't properly spell or converse the term "eclectic".
You lose, you boner. Oh. I can't wait for your ranting reply. I *quiver* with anticipation (not)

And by golly, here I am doing the same thing::: cannot even spell "illustrate" correctly...

Just some humorous comments Curly...

What really ticks me off is IG's webcit continually crashing the Safari browser or
vice-versa. Why in the fuck? This NEVER happened under OS9.

(is the problem one? or the other?)

Back to food...
What a variety...
There was the traditional tamales,
Spanish rice & beans,
Oyster chowder (or stew),
Grilled shrimp,
Venison sausage,
and a bunch 'a sides and desserts...
...not bad at all....

And you may not find my comment humorous, that is perfectly well respected.

While my spelling has gone to the dogs lately that wasn't the case with "eclectic" which was a typo. Usually I add (sp?) when I know the spelling is wrong.
Truthfully I'm not much concerned about spelling as much as grammar and vocabulary, for example "converse the term."

Rant? Not likely, I find spelling Nazi's humorous and small-minded. These discussions detract from the thread, often intentionally.

You lose, you boner.

Were we competing? What's the prize? Have you ever lived in a society where English isn't spoken for any significant time? I'll warn you that your dexterity in any unused language deteriorates quickly and upon reuse returns slowly.

Is this an important distraction?

but it will only help to illutsrate your true character. Bleahh....


See what I mean? There's no rational reason to jump you for a similar mistake.
Three responses are possible, jumping you and hoping that you "Die in a deep fryer," ignoring an insignificant typo, or paying atttention to the thread.

I choose Door #3, Bob.

Trying to flame a non-native speaker over issues of grammar reminds me of the dialup days of war boards. I mean, give it a rest. Why jump all over a post or a person unless there's a larger issue, and if there is, why not just deal with that?
Otherwise...veering back on target, we might tie you up over a spit and slow-roast you to see if human really _does_ taste like sickly-sweet chicken, as I've read. ;)

Indonesians call it "long pig."

Grey Wolf, I am a native English speaker living in a Spanish-only country for the last year and a half with a previous few years in Germany. I don't speak any of the three as well as I'd like.

Hmmm, long pig would require a light beaujolais(sp?) or Pinot Noir...

I think it's pretty much universally known that long pig is eaten with fava beans and a nice chianti.
