comment What temperature are dark beers (stouts and nut browns) supposed to be consumed at?
@awithrow: Purists will tell you that cold Guinness is an anathema. "Guinness Ice-cold" is a marketing ploy to get people drinking again (and it worked). The colder a liquid is the less you actually taste it, which is why most popular American beers (Bud, MGD, Coors etc) are served extremely cold, they'd loose hands down on a chilled (not ice cold) taste test with any standard European beer (e.g. Heineken or Carlsberg) . . . that said I too like my Guinness cold :)

comment Why do some countries prefer UHT milk and cream?
"I wonder if it has to do with stricter food regulations under the European Union". Ireland and the UK have exactly the same regulations, and we're fresh milk all the way here in Ireland.

@Satanicpuppy: That guy with the fat-eating-enzime had better hold the movie rights, it'll be sure to be picked up by some bacteria and decimate the human race :)

comment How do you properly cook a steak?
+1: This is pretty much my method, and I adore my steaks. Sear both sides to seal in the juices, turn down and cook to order.
