Is the curry stuff just a sauce basically out of that pack, and you added the taters and carrots and what have you?

Looks really good. First thing that comes to my mind is just good beef stew, but I guess if it's the Japanese stuff it's got a taste a little bit different, but maybe it doesn't. I don't know I've never had Japanese Curry before.

Enjoy...
it's blocks of curry roux

What exactly does it taste like? Man I know what Indian curry tastes like, is Japanese a lot different or is it somewhat similar, just called Japanese Curry for some goofy reason?

I've just never had it but if it's easier to use or make I'm all about convenience sometimes. To me it looks like something perfect for cold weather, especially with a bunch of rice.

It’s definitely different than Indian curry. Stole this from the interwebs and it’s a pretty good comparison:

Japanese curry uses curry powder with less spices whereas Indian curry uses a variety of bases such as cumin, paprika, turmeric, and many more. Indian curry is more vibrant and bursting with flavor, while Japanese curry is sumptuous and “umami” but in a more understated manner

Golden curry is perfect for any time of the year. Absolutely delicious.

I have Cutco knives, any /real/ reason to not just keep going with Cutco? I get they are kinda mid, but not, but costly, but not... etc.

I have a full mainline set- Chef, Parry, Bread, Cheese, 2x Steak, a long and short serrated and a two prong serving thing poker deal, and the serrated spatula thing?- all in a block.

I want a cleaver and some others - so I am wondering if there are others that are really really better and within the same cost range and worthy enough to break up matching set :)

Yeah, looks pretty familiar to dishes I've seen on some of the Japanese restaurant tour videos I'll watch occasionally. Japanese Food Craftsman is pretty good one. I just find it fascinating to watch him how the stuff operates over there. People that run that stuff really have a passion for their work, even if it's just doing yakitory, or frying chicken all day.

They're not bad knives.

I had gotten a few Cutco knives for Christmas back in college. If I remember correctly, they have a lifetime warranty. They're not bad, but as my knife skills got better, I found i really didn't care for the thinness of the handle on the chefs knife, especially after trying a victorinox. Think I just prefer using something heftier.

I still use the paring, serrated, and extendable filet knife, the filet knife is especially useful.

Chef JP has been doing potato Mondays. I know quite a few of you guys including myself enjoy his recipes. It's funny because my step mom used to make something pretty similar to this for holidays, basically a big twice baked potato casserole. I stopped doing individual twice baked potatoes and just make that instead cuz it seems to be a little less work, you can feed an army, plus the 5 lb bags of smaller russets are easy, set of having a go get Giant football potatoes.

Fuck me, he lost the Major. I guess I haven't seen that video yet but I've been subscribed to him for years. Man that sucks.

I'm putting this here because I really like this guy's channel and his seasoning. Poor bastard just had his dog died then his fucking house burned down.



Goddamn, that’s sad. Love watching his videos and just how wholesome he is.

Him, Chef JP and DanVasc are my only 3 YouTube subs/like/bell i have heh

Sad to hear about the puppet and house.

The story about Kent and his wife (current? I forgot if he had one before) is interesting… thankful for her, has she basically got him out of his shell to do more and YT.

Attention all Cowboy Kent fans. He is on the newly released third season of BBQ Showdown on Netflix. Already enjoyed the show, but happy to see him back on another challenge.

They savages Kent in the first episode. He's also the only white dude it looks like.

I remember that episode of Showdown. In a couple of different shows back on food Network in the day. Probably watched more of those episodes or TV shows, things like Diners Drive-Ins and dives, on TV when I had cable.

Emeril Live, daily 7:00 p.m. spot. Iron Chef America! It's hard for me not to sit there and just enjoy the hell out of watching them cook against one another, is God damn, they really come up with amazing off the cuff recipes, even with something as stupid as corm.

Iron Chef Japan is still the best, and luckily it's available on YouTube. Don't ask me how I know. 😉

Holy fuck, I remember that movie! It's like a weird blend of the Principal with Belushi, but it's Marc Dacoscis doing Brazilian or whatever weird martial arts style that is. Capoeira if I'm not mistaken.

The '90s really was the last great decade.

In the words of my uncle, "Iron Chef"!
