comment How to cook squid to get rid of the 'urine' flavor? What causes that flavor?
Regarding the "taste of urine", in a high school biology class our teacher covered the topic because there is a specific chemical in urine that is responsible for the foul taste that most but not all of us will have the gene that makes it taste that way. There is a small subset of people to where that chemical has no taste at all. So it would be that chemical that would be responsible for the taste and wouldn't have to actually be urine to cause it.

comment How can I make Chinese chicken fingers like in the northeast USA?
Agreed on those being sweet and sour chicken pieces. Also, this is not just Northeast, I can attest to that style existing in Michigan and Texas. Some places do a tighter crunchier batter (my preferred) and others do this soft fluffy batter.

comment What are other techniques are used to tenderize steaks apart from using a meat mallet?
@Joe yes I wouldn't use this tenderizer on most pieces of meat, it is for very tough ones to break up as much connective tissue as possible not just to make a few holes for a marinade to get into. Of course, there are people that will argue holes in meat to get flavor in will inevitably just let all your juices flow out. If it works for you though, I say keep it up.

comment Camping with tofu
Careful with aluminum and really hot campfires, we've lost some pie "irons" in the camp fire when they melted away.

Will there not be campfires? Cast iron on the campfire will do you wonders.

comment What are the main styles of pizza that are popular in America?
The neopolitan is by far my favorite, although I enjoy the others too. I'm lucky enough to have one nearby and it looks like I have one of the "certified" ones local too, will have to check it out.

@justkt, agreed, was just adding to my answer how you can do whatever you want really. I listed those as the common "American" selection that I've seen.

comment How can I get chewy chocolate chip cookies?
at least in the US, on the Nestle Chocolate Chips they have a recipe for Chocolate Chip cookies. Probably the most used recipe for them in the States. This site claims this is the orig recipe, don't have a bag on me to compare: verybestbaking.com/recipes/specialty/nth-detail-occc.aspx
