Sac- Ya they’re Chinese or french not Jewish.February 2, 2011 9:08 pm at 9:08 pm #735958
“the best chefs in the world are men”
Though i’ve only eaten Kosher, so I wouldn’t know about a big part of the world
Here’s what I think: In the Home, the women make fantastic cooks
but, in retaurants, catering halls, etc.. it’s the men who dominate

“Ya they’re Chinese or french not Jewish.”
The head chef on the cruise was French, Head Sous-chef was Polish,
And the Chefs under them were, Indian, Filippino, some Asians, some South Americans, and one American (from 150)February 2, 2011 9:48 pm at 9:48 pm #735960
“Ya they’re Chinese or french not Jewish”
I’m not sure about Chinese…. although David Chang of the Momofuku restaurants has taken off like comet. Worlds best Chef (arguably, there is that whole molecular gastronomy argument) right now is Ferran Adria who is Spanish.
Although you do have a point, Jewish men are not known for their food.February 2, 2011 9:50 pm at 9:50 pm #735961
what about Wolfgang PuckFebruary 2, 2011 9:59 pm at 9:59 pm #735962
Wolfgang Puck was the innovator of “Modern American Cuisine” before him there was only hot dogs and pizza. Puck refined and brought class to American food, he put us on the map.
Is he the greatest Chef in the world today? probably not. Genius? Most definitelyFebruary 2, 2011 10:04 pm at 10:04 pm #735963always hereParticipant
Wolfgang Puck? what about Julia Child?February 2, 2011 10:09 pm at 10:09 pm #735964
Serious question: How are you so well rounded in knowledge, i’m pretty impressedFebruary 2, 2011 10:33 pm at 10:33 pm #735965
Julia Child cooked French cuisine.
In food knowledge or in knowledge in general?February 2, 2011 10:58 pm at 10:58 pm #735966
“i’m julia childs”
General and foodFebruary 3, 2011 12:04 am at 12:04 am #735967
I dont really know a lot about one thing… I think I know a little about a lot of things, unless its something I enjoy. Food happens to be one of those things 🙂February 3, 2011 4:14 am at 4:14 am #735968
Nice, me too
Do you cook?February 3, 2011 3:45 pm at 3:45 pm #735969

Um, I’m Jewish and a guy…and a really good cook( with the help of Hashem) who loves to potchke in the kithen with complicated recipes…if I have the time. I don’t even like to get near a BBQ grill. And if I by any chance meet my zivug from this site please dont inform her that I can cook…I dont want to her to know(let her do the cooking…if she is a good cook). 😉February 3, 2011 4:30 pm at 4:30 pm #735971✡onegoal™Participant
I cook myself something when I’m really hungry and there are no more chips left but it is normally something simple like egg and cheese on a bagel or a sandwich in the sandwich maker (if you can call this cooking).February 3, 2011 5:40 pm at 5:40 pm #735972
Whats are the things you make best?February 3, 2011 5:52 pm at 5:52 pm #735973
I’m good at thing that need precision work or patience.
Things thats are mini, or one bite (amuse bouche) are my favorite things to make, and eat!February 3, 2011 6:21 pm at 6:21 pm #735974
Whats amuse bouche?February 3, 2011 6:39 pm at 6:39 pm #735975
Basically a bite size hors d’oeuvre.February 3, 2011 6:44 pm at 6:44 pm #735976
Never mind, I just googled it.
Good for you, if you can pull that off to make it look like that, then kudos to youFebruary 3, 2011 7:16 pm at 7:16 pm #735977bptParticipant
“I’m good at thing that need precision work or patience”
Wow, are we polar opposites. I bake oat bran muffins. From taking the ing. out of the fridge/cabintes to washing/drying the mixing bowl and putting the stuff away, under 20 minutes.
And in much of those 20, the goods are in the oven. And I get 12 of them for the effort.
Minis (or the amuses) take how long?February 3, 2011 8:35 pm at 8:35 pm #735978
It depends what you make.
Certain things even though they are small can still be done relatively fast, the problem is I usually run out of space in the oven so thats the most challenging part, waiting for the first shift to be done so I can get the second third and forth shifts in.
The good news is that it usually makes a lot 🙂February 3, 2011 8:47 pm at 8:47 pm #735979Sender AvMember
I make really good chicken dishes. I also make a good chopped liver, kugels, cakes, the pastrami dish I posted a while back.February 3, 2011 11:08 pm at 11:08 pm #735980Sister BearMember
They moved cholent here to Thursday night now – some boys drive to Monsey because a gas station there has the best cholent and don’t you DARE try to cut them in line unless you would like to end your life.
Sender – I know a bunch of girls who would love for their husbands to cook for them (they aren’t married either :)) since they hate to cook themselves so don’t worry about knowing how to cook. 🙂
