Good question, IG.  When are you sending me my comparison gift basket?  :-D

Hmm, I wonder what kind of booze would be appropriate to use if you wanted to flambe a ragout.

There are, in fact, alcohol-soluble flavors in tomatoes, which is why some people add a bit of red wine to tomato-based sauces. I don't particularly like the way that tastes, though, so I don't do it.

Of course, there's also the classic vodka sauce, but you cook the alcohol out of that; it's not a flambe...

Perhaps with some interesting modifications...

Maybe Vodka?

At the moment I am drinking a cocktail while preparing a dinner of ravioli with tomato sauce. I don't think that counts, though.

I'm thinking about making ravioli sometime soon. Got a pasta maker.

Ah, the Latin for 'Flaming Ragu Sauce'.

Historical Cookbook!

http://cookit.e2bn.org/historycookbook/index.php

 

Abstract:

Welcome to the history cookbook. Do you know what the Vikings ate for dinner? What a typical meal of a wealthy family in Roman Britain consisted of, or what food was like in a Victorian Workhouse? Why not drop into history cookbook and find out? This project looks at the food of the past and how this influenced the health of the people living in each time period. You can also try some of the recipes for yourself. We have a wide range of historical recipes from Brown Bread Ice Cream to Gruel (Why not see if you would be asking for more - just like Oliver Twist).

Isn't gruel the same thing as porridge (oatmeal) but mixed to a thinner consistency?

Oliver Twist shouldn't have been looking for more gruel. He should have just requested more oats so that he could have thickened the gruel into a proper porridge. Mix in some brown sugar to give it a bit of sweetness, maybe a couple of pieces of bacon or sausage on the side, and a nice cup of coffee.
What the heck was wrong with that kid? He's gotta eat a proper breakfast.

And I suppose I shouldn't be rewriting allegedly-classic literature when I'm really hungry. But what the heck, this is Uncensored, where pretty much anything goes...

Yeah, he should have jumped straight to the beef wellington with a nice consumme.

Sounds tasty, but beef wellington is a bit time consuming to prepare. As a factory worker he might not have had time to go through all of that. Maybe over the weekend, though...

My wife made fun of me today because I'm a food nerd and I know the correct names of each half of a hamburger bun.

(For those not in the know -- the part that sits on the plate is called the heel, and the part that sits on top of the burger is called the crown. If there is a third slice in the middle, such as with the Big Mac bun, that slice is called the club.)

wow. Good Eats was cancelled months ago and I'm just getting around to noticing now. I guess it jumped the shark around the time he did the "diet" episode. Never trust a skinny cook!

Oh well. Now the Food Network will have room to air more cake baking competition reality shows.

I didn't know Good Eats was canceled!  Of course I don't watch a lot of TV, but that was a good show.  It must have run for a while in repeats or syndication because I am sure I saw it sometime this year.

What would you do if you were eating with someone and they ate their hamburger upside down - meaning the heel on top and the crown on the bottom?

Actually I did that just yesterday. The burger was juicy enough that it had started to make the heel a bit on the soggy side, so I turned the whole sandwich upside down to keep it from falling apart.

(Yes this was a home cooked burger ... fast food burgers have no hope of ever being that juicy.)

Letting the burgers--or any meat for that matter--rest a few minutes before plating can help reduce the mess-factor.

now I'm hungry. There are half-decent burgers at the mall. Do I have the time to spend on going to the mall...?
