There are loads of recipes in Indian cooking alone, add in all the other places its grown and there are so many ways I’ve yet to eat it, and I love okra.

I’m team-teaching a course on Food Culture this fall with someone in Anthro, and we’re brining in different people to talk about, and sample, what different foods and drinks mean to them, culturally. We’ll also recreate dishes (as best we can) from historical recipes. My chair laughs that I’m running a big scam with this.

Continue the scam, it sounds wonderful.

I recently learned about McDonald’s McPlant burger, which I am curious about, but they aren’t available around here. But I found this review, complete with photos.
Check out the difference in the “official” PR photo of the burger:

Versus what the reviewer got in their box:

It’s been a long, long time since I’ve eaten any fast food, but I seem to remember that there weren’t huge globs of mayo that didn’t even pretend to have been applied to the actual sandwich. So sloppy!

According to the review, they’re just “meh,” but comparable to the Whopper version for less than half the price.

Let’s be careful out there.

I’ve been curious about the KFC beyond chicken…

“Chik’n” nuggets are an easy substitution because the real thing is usually a mix of plant-based proteins as well as odd bits & pieces of chicken, so there isn’t that much difference in preparation or taste anyway.

Yes I have made my own pizza.
Little known fact, I was pizza chef in high school. Riviera pizza parlor on Clayton road Concord Ca.
That said, yes I am a pizza snob. A Margherita pizza is my test if anyones pizza.
Just tested a frozen pizza ( I know!) and will recommend Del Popolo made here in San Francisco and sold at Trader Joe’s.
