An avid amateur cook, I like to experiment with fusion dishes, usually with asian flavours. Also a rampant vegetarian, which makes cooking much more interesting. Originally trained in Italian cooking, and in an Israeli Navy galley. Currently beginning to take an interest in Middle-Eastern cooking, which is much more than it seems at first glance. Also specifically interested in snadiwches and their composition.

comment What natural ingredient besides honey and fats can I use to bind a mixture of powders together?
If your powders contain gluten (or some other protein that binds well), you could probably make them into a biscuit or cracker.

comment How do we decide between gas, induction, and electric (ceramic) stoves?
@Jefromi Heat transferred to pot relative to money spent is the ultimate energy efficiency for me, but it's different in every district, depending on the price of gas and electricity. In this case I was talking about heat on pot relative to heat generated/wasted.

comment how can I tell if my pots and pans are ferrous?
@jbarker2160 - I was actually paraphrasing the text on the test magnet that came with my induction stove.
