I think Robert Rodriquez said it best: "Not knowing how to cook is like not knowing how to f***." Crude? Yes. But the man has a point. You have to eat every day, so why not figure out how to do it as well as you can. Unfortunately, more of my time is spent earning money so I can buy cookbooks. For that I do things like writing software. Well, to be entirely accurate I mostly just copy code from Stack Overflow. Thank you, Jeff Atwood!

Definitely ask them about tsukemono (soo-kay-moh-no). They're different from the western notion of pickles and a fascinating part of Japanese cuisine.

comment Does chili paste require refrigeration?
+1, I'd say that most don't require refrigeration, but unless you're really space constrained, I'd store it in the fridge. The fridge isn't going to hurt the flavor any. I used to keep mine out with the Tabasco, but once after a few months it started growing some mold and had to be thrown out. Now I keep it in the fridge and haven't had similar problems. I think those wide mouthed containers are more prone to infection than the ones with the smaller twist-open-and-squirt caps like sriracha comes in. Better safe than sorry.

comment Should a [Ceramic] mug be left covered or uncovered during the tea bag steeping process?
I'm sure the downvotes are because this is a trick question, as there is no proper way to steep bag tea in any drinking or serving vessel. Fannings... blech!!! (BTdubs, my tongue's in my cheek here.) :-)
