Food is interesting. I usually think about it at around why + 7.

For every natural phenomenon there are different levels of explanation. I like to call these "why" values. For the first value of why, the question "Why is the sky blue?" can be answered with some simple hand-waving about light from the sun passing through our planet's atmosphere. For a value of why + 2 (also known to parents as, "But whyyyyy?") you have to start talking about the fact that light comes in different colors.

Also, I like the idea of cake more than cake itself.

comment Does kimchi always have live cultures?
Reading through it again, I agree that we can probably give an answer on the "alive" vs "killed by pasteurization" question. What we can't do is to discuss when a live culture has probiotic advantages and when it doesn't. I edited the question to be more focused on the "live culture" part and reopened.

comment Does kimchi always have live cultures?
@logophobe the way I read it it needs the answer to decide when some nutrient (in this case the bacteria) is in an "active" state, which goes into the territory of bioavailability.

comment what is the best choice to consume
Hello Dewijones, I'm afraid that this is an epitome of a subjective question. There is no "best choice". Eat whatever you like, and bon apetit!

comment Putting a solid chocolate bar inside cake dough: what's the outcome?
Ah, I see. I misunderstood your intention. Then you'll have to fill your cake with a chocolate spread of some kind, not with solid chocolate.

comment How to bake bread and desserts without an oven?
@MHH there isn't much to elaborate. The food didn't bake, but the outer pot was burnt on the bottom.

comment How to bake bread and desserts without an oven?
I've tried this before, as a poor student in a tiny dorm room without an oven. It never worked for me, but it ruined my large pot.

comment Fresh popcorn serving size suggestion
Sorry Terry, but there is no "one size fits all" solution. You'll have to pick the size which sells best, based on marketing considerations. A cook can't tell you how much everybody will eat.

comment E.Coli Temperature death rate?
Of course there must be an E. Coli version, there is no logical reason why all bacteria in a population will die at the same temperature.

comment What's the name of this food?
I closed this as "unclear". I can think of 3 totally different foods within seconds, and there is no good way to distinguish between each of them based on the info we have. If you can provide a detailed description of where it was served and what it tasted like, your question can be reopened. But the picture is really insufficient.
