Photographer, tech head, and extreme sport enthusiast.

I'm an amateur who likes to shoot everything from portraits to landscapes. My favorite venues are half way up a 14k mountain, Ontario in Fall, and the Mediterranean at sunset.

I love talking technology, new equipment, and Canon lenses.

comment Why is my cheesesteak meat tough?
That's a good point to note. I cut first, cooked second.

comment How do I cook sticky rice/glutinous rice in my rice cooker?
As I said in my question, my rice cooker also has a steam function. Will that achieve the desired effect?

comment Is spicy chicken by default buffalo chicken?
Ross - The ingredients are in a line presented to the customer and the chicken is "pre-sauced" at the time of presentation. I hear you on the additional menu item, I just wasn't searching the other menu items to determine what this one might be!

Yeah I've certainly had lots of unique toppings but this place really isn't pushing any boundaries. "Pizza" should always be rooted in Italian cuisine to me, so any type of chicken that wouldn't be used in Italian cuisine should be explained as such. Thanks for your input.

Aaronut - The chicken was quite red like it had tabasco or some other hot sauce on it. I have no idea what it actually was but after I looked at the ingredient that they were about to top my pizza with I knew it wasn't what I expected just simply because of the color and the fact that it was saucy and not a dry ingredient. Note that the pizza place is not very Mexican at all I would say, just based out of California.

Thanks! I'm going to give it a shot and I will report back. I'm no rice snob, just trying to get some decent sticky rice at home without additional single purpose equipment.

Ross - It is "Build your own pizza place". They had spicy chicken as a topping option. The question is, what would expect this topping to be?

Interesting thoughts Joleneaska. The pizza shop is "Pieology" and is based in California. They are essentially a "Chipotle" style Pizza Hut to give a quick summary.

comment How do I cook sticky rice/glutinous rice in my rice cooker?
I'm not really sure that this answers my question. I don't want to substitute sticky rice for something else, I want to try to properly cool sticky rice with the equipment I have if possible. Also washing rice is quite a debatable topic that this site already has Q&A on, so I'd rather not get into that here.

The rice cooker that I have also offers a steam basket for steaming fish and vegetables. Would that work to properly steam Thai sticky rice?

comment How to throw a pizza dough?
This doesn't answer the question so I voted it down. The question isn't "Do I have to throw a pizza dough?" or similar.

comment Will my results differ when using a sourdough starter vs poolish for pizza dough?
Bobby - I appreciate the comments. Crisper, lighted, and chewier all sound wonderful. I'll have to give the sourdough starter a try. If you are struggling with high heat, I highly recommend the baking steel. It is a game changer for home oven Neapolitan pizza.

comment Preparing Meats using Dry Rubs
@Jefromi - I believe what he is referring to is outside of "packaged spice blends", i.e. "Lawry's Seasoned Salt", "McCormick Grill Mates Montreal Steak Seasoning", "Old Bay", etc. He wants to know what base ingredients to make his own blend.
