Culinary Lies


#1

Anything food related.

The obvious one’s when some relentless tiresome prick says ‘Have a cup of tea, it’ll cool you down’. Nob. You are just a nob.

My favourite’s when people get a bit of eggshell in their eggs and insist using another bit of the eggshell’s the best way to scoop it fucking out. Boring bastards. Hand straight in. Failing that a spoon’s always, always quicker.

Another one’s people saying microwaving food kills its nutrients. Where are they getting this shit from?

Shoot…


#2

That you need to be drinking eight gallons of water a day or whatever the current lie is.

I’m muting the thread now, bye.

“Serves four”

Make something with love. Not possible.
Make something homemade not in a home. Not possible.

no-one enjoys those beetroot and lettuce smoothies.

The seeds in a chilli aren’t really hot so don’t worry about it.


#13

All that whirlpool/vinegar bollocks for poachies.


#14

I forgot the big one. Home cooking’s cheaper than just buying stuff. Bollocks.


#15

Stirring something halfway through cooking in the microwave


#16

Depends whether you grow your own pine nuts or not


#17

Who buys pine nuts anyway


#18

its one or the other

TOP TIP

Letting a Guinness… settle, just wasting time and it tastes exactly the same
