I find some of the fads you train people into interesting. Such as the pointless slice of orange at the side of a salad, or the obligatory decoration of paprika around the edge of a plate. Also, parsley - you know you can get it such that it actually has a flavour and function as food component? However, my overriding message is...


....STOP COVERING STUFF IN ICING SUGAR.

That is all.

This thread makes me want to go to New Orleans and eat at Cafe du Monde.

Still WRONG by Merekat (4.00 / 1) #4 Fri Aug 27, 2010 at 09:27:34 AM EST
If I want a dark chocolate crepe, I want a dark chocolate crepe, not one drowned in sweet powery crap that makes me cough and makes it all taste different.

Have you considered.. by Driusan (2.00 / 0) #6 Fri Aug 27, 2010 at 09:52:29 AM EST
..getting a beignet, instead of a dark chocolate crepe?

Were there likely to be one within several hundred kilometres.

you can get a beignet by aphrael (2.00 / 0) #11 Fri Aug 27, 2010 at 05:54:24 PM EST
which isn't covered in powdered sugar?

i've never been able to manage that.

also: crepes are better. :)

Even chocolate-filled pastries? by marvin (2.00 / 0) #5 Fri Aug 27, 2010 at 09:40:46 AM EST
You're heartless.

chocolate cheesecakes should have it on top.

But if I had to give that up to make sure I never had a coulis drifted with icing sugar to scrape off the side of a desert plate again, I'd be quite happy.

(Also, as a cœliac, the idea of eating cheesecake that someone else made quite far-fetched in the first place.)

You live in 1981? by BadDoggie (2.00 / 0) #12 Sat Aug 28, 2010 at 12:52:30 PM EST
Because the only way I know of to find parsley as plate deco is either deep-fried (works best with sage leaves) or as a chiffonade. In Germany Bratkartoffeln (fried sliced potatoes with onion) and Wienerschnitzel may have some chopped fresh parsley on top but it's both deco and flavour.

Avoid cooking schools which advertise on late-night TV.

woof.

OMG WE'RE FUCKED! -- duxup ?
