comment Making hazelnut flour with *just* blanched/peeled hazelnuts
I know you've asked for a way to do this with just the nuts, but one common approach is to combine with sugar to avoid turning the nuts into a paste.

comment What ingredient, besides beans, creates a complete protein together with rice?
One of my favorites. Caramelize plenty of onions, add to boiled lentils and rice (boil separately), season with salt and cumin, and serve with sour cream.

comment Why do chefs use salt and pepper bowl after touching raw foods
I'm not sure about that. A salt cellar is not exactly the most habitable environment for most food-borne diseases, and some chefs don't bother with discarding the salt. That's not an endorsement of the practice, just an acceptance of fact. Also, when cooking for a show rather than real diners, sanitation is not necessarily of primary concern.

comment Difference between “real mayonnaise” and “mayonnaise dressing”
I don't know that I'd feel deceived if I were given mayo whose color was adulterated using saffron.
