comment Is there no use for high temperatures in ovens?
This somewhat crazy person uses a domestic oven that he's modified so that he can use the "self-clean" mode for cooking pizza.

comment Will these types of pots work for cooking gumbo?
You could always get the roux going in a pot you know and love and then transfer it to the bigger pot.

comment What do the base ingredients in pancakes do?
@Jefromi I'm sure I did; I was too lazy to run down and grab my copy of McGee to do some reviewing. Yes, pancakes are at least half flour by volume so the starch is pretty important. Also I didn't elaborate on the fact that you can vary American pancakes with other grains: oat flour, flax, etc.

comment What do the base ingredients in pancakes do?
If you're interested in food and cooking and how it all works, an investment in a copy of Harold McGee's On Food And Cooking is money extremely well spent.

comment how long can you keep uncooked lentils - red and brown
Are you planning for an upcoming apocalypse, or are you trying to determine whether some really old lentils you have are still edible?

comment Is it normal to wash an apple, or other fruits, with dish washing liquid?
Make sure you tell the person you saw doing that to either bump up their life insurance coverage or else stop it.

comment Béchamel and pomodoro
I don't live in Italy but I've recently started doing this and it's delicious, especially with a little left-over pieces of cheese whisked in.

comment Lemon zest in large volumes
Boyajian Pure Lemon Oil can (sometimes) be used as a substitute for lemon zest when what you're after is really just the oil and the aromatics. It's a good product in my opinion, and a little goes a long way.

comment Covering food while cooling
Well in my experience it's not so much sourness, though I suppose that's possible. Usually the problem is that the food develops an "overcooked cabbage" smell. It's hard to describe; the easiest way to get the idea is to overcook some broccoli in a covered pan :)
