An avid, ambitious homebrewer, I'm currently brewing on an all-electric system capable of 20+ gallon batches.

This is the only way I eat grapefruit now. Can be done with any citrus and is also known as supreme.

comment Baking naan without an oven?
@SunishthaSingh, most of the recipes I've seen use yogurt. I don't know if it will be exactly the same as your recipe with egg, but you should try it and find out.

comment Baking naan without an oven?
@Sobachatina, I cranked the griddle up as high as it would go, and I was very pleased with the result. It's obviously not the same as proper naan cooked in a tandoor, but they were soft, chewy and delicious.

comment Navigating the different types of cookware - new kitchen advice
That's a heck of an answer. I would add two things: a mention of forged iron pans (like this DeBuyer Mineral Element B). I have two now, and they have become my go-to pans for pretty much everything. Eggs don't stick, meat sears beautifully. And second, I love my little butter melter :) I don't have a microwave, so it comes in handy for melting butter (who knew?!), and heating up small amounts of sauces, leftovers, whatnot.

comment What features should I look for when buying an espresso maker?
The differences can be many, especially once you get away from department store machines (Breville, etc.). They generally use inexpensive pumps and heating systems, and a pressurized portafilter to simulate crema. I don't have time for a full answer at the moment, but check out CoffeeGeek's forums for more information than you can shake a coffee bean at.

comment Wood for a cutting board, will sanding make it food safe?
SBF is a great product, but not in this application. The problem here is that SBF (and any film finish--polyurethane, etc) only sits on the surface. It will be worn away and cut through by use as a cutting board, which will expose the treated wood underneath.

comment How is Kiwifruit used to tenderize Meat?
@Informaficker no, it's a very well-formed question. Better than many from native English speakers that I've read. Chris was just being a little silly.

comment How to pop a tiny champagne cork?
I was totally expecting to see a tiny bottle of champagne. If it were me (based on some Google searching), I would go with a corkscrew and some care.

comment How to Make Hazelnut Roasted Coffee
I think this really should be two completely separate questions. I can give a very thorough answer for how to roast beans, but know nothing about hazelnut flavoring.

comment How to cut beef tenderloin into Filet Mignon
Nice answer. Long, sharp blade, taking long, smooth strokes. That's the recipe.
