I love to cook and I love good quality food and drink. In particular red wine, cheese and good cake.

I'm just about up on US/UK food translation as I lived in Chicago for a while, but still find it interesting that there is such a gulf in how we cook.

Away from the kitchen I'm an IT project manager who loves to read and thinks ice hockey and rugby are awesome.

I think those are still nucleation sites... en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Boiling

comment Dangerous simmering - exploding liquid? (cheesemaking)
Have you tried a splatter guard? I know they're pretty good for tomato sauce, but I've never tried them at this heat.

comment Bread with no salt
Tuscan bread is very bland on it's own but has a really good open texture. It's sort of like chewable water.

comment Rice gets burnt and watery
I find a good heavy bottom to the pan helps too (as well as a tight lid)

comment Is this “true” cinnamon?
Often the strength in flavor can be attributed to it just being really fresh as well.

comment Is there any danger to letting food cook in a slow cooker for a very long time?
In China my friend told me they do this over the whole winter in some regions. Just add new stuff everyday and keep it hot.

I think you can, although obviously not all year you might have luck now.

comment Advice on use and care of Le Creuset cast iron skillet
I've got the matching milk pan and the only really important thing I'd add to this is only use wooden or plastic tools, metal will scratch the lining too.

comment Special coffee served in Malaysia (or India)
That looks like en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Turkish_coffee, but although that's found in a lot of europe and all of the middle east I didn't think it went that far east.
