I'll dump what I have, feel free to contribute
this is fucking beautiful, it's like modern art
have this in return OP, only webm I ever saved
>all these edible food webms
How insensitive to the people who have Pica.
Man, the year working the cheese counter and doing parmesan was the worst cuz they wanted us to use wires to cut that shit. Wish I could have shown them this. There was a better way all this time...
>she's sitting in a tub of ketchup
Words change constantly. Look at the differences between olde english and modern english. It's now a hard G. any chance they had of correcting it died when they ignored it for 15 years.
Link videos and I'll make some new webms, I only have the same thirty or so that get reposted every time.
Reptar showed up and started kicking everything over.
They edited that part out.
The cheese is the star and everything else is a side or a means to get the cheese into your mouth.
doesnt quite work like that bud.
the mass of hot sand means it heats up the coffee really fast, but doesnt heat to the point it might fuck with the metal or evaporate/burn the coffee.
It's for similar reasons as this, pointless frippery.
dont get /ck/ started with knives, I can use an ulu as an all purpose tool in the kitchen, break down chickens like a motherfucker with it
but if it isn't proper french technique [see: overly complicated bullshit] people around here don't care about it
it never fails to depress me that this triggers people on here so hard
post after post of 'how do i eat this?' and speculations on how expensive it is
you're all fucking imagination-stifling plebs
It's real in that they shot shrimp through those things, it's not real in that the shrimp that lands on the plate is not the shrimp that was launched.
So basically it's only real in that it wasn't cgi
what do you expect? This is /ck/, where simple miso soup and unseasoned grilled or fried meats are seen as the pinnacle of cooking.
It's a bunch of manchildren that don't like to leave their weeb and fast food comfort zones
you're the one who brought up 'getting it'. you're always the one who brings up 'getting it'. it's always the one who takes a dump on other people's creative work who thinks that 'getting it' is some kind of objective quality. you either like it or you don't, but have a proper fucking reason dude.
It's actually stupid, it's to fool gullible people into wasting their money, it's like telephone scamming old people.
>but they're happy why does it matter?
You'll be able to justify anything you want with your leaps in logic you fucking lying criminal sociopath
>you either like it or you don't, but have a proper fucking reason dude.
because it's pretentious and stupid
that's the most valid criticism of "art", it isn't artistic, its retarded
literally "you are a bad artist and find a new profession, it's a very shitty, stupid, ass backwards concept, I hate it, and I hate you because of it"
what are they being convinced of?
>because it's pretentious and stupid
>that's the most valid criticism of "art", it isn't artistic, its retarded
that's not even approaching an actual criticism. 'it's pretentious and stupid' is a conclusion, you have to establish premises implying that conclusion. what is the pretence? when you say it's stupid, are you arguing that it literally does not require thought, or is it relative to other kinds of presentation, and if so, what other kinds, and why does it not compete intellectually?
>use this technique
he said: "I want to do this (minus sand)" so I guess he means: "I want to make turkish coffee", he wouldn't mean the sand technique when he says specifically: "minus sand"
because if you gave an infant a bunch of ingredients, and said make a dessert, they would splatter it around on the table resulting in the same shit
your art is literally something an infant would do accidentally
>because if you gave an infant a bunch of ingredients, and said make a dessert, they would splatter it around on the table resulting in the same shit
they might splatter it around on the table, but no it would not result in the same shit. even if you gave it all of the extensively prepared components (not ingredients; components) necessary to produce the same textures and flavours, they wouldn't be able to apply the same organised presentational logic.
there is no logic in making people eat off the table like an animal, might as well throw it on the floor. you have made my meal inconvenient to eat, you failed to do your job. you haven't given me a good dining experience, you have essentially charged me out the ass for hershey syrup and coolwhip eaten off of a napkin
eating off a flat surface on a table is so much harder than eating off another flat surface on a table, i see.
working out the food cost for that dish it would probably come out to like 10 bucks maximum. if that's exorbitant to you then don't pay for it but it isn't unaffordable in and of itself, and a fuckton of work went into it so stop trying so hard to devalue it by comparing it to visually similar budget products.
>working out the food cost for that dish it would probably come out to like 10 bucks maximum
yeah, for the restaurant, and they are probably charging 50 for it
also more importantly
>eating off a flat surface on a table is so much harder than eating off another flat surface on a table
I wouldn't serve what is essentially a dessert soup on a plate to begin with. we have these things called bowls that allow you to get your spoon submerged in liquid instead of making you try to awkwardly scrape your food into your mouth
I'd like to know where that place is so I can be sure to stay away from it
>and they are probably charging 50 for it
they aren't. for a start they charge a fixed rate for a full meal, there is no a la carte dining, they actually sell 'tickets' to the restaurant. the tickets sell for an average of around 250 bucks and there are usually about 15 courses.
>I wouldn't serve what is essentially a dessert soup on a plate to begin with
it's not a soup. there's a creme brulee, a mousse, various sauces and purees and some other bits and pieces.
>I'd like to know where that place is so I can be sure to stay away from it
chicago, the restaurant is called alinea.
honestly their difficulties were mostly self inflicted, by turning their land into a dust bowl by cutting down all their forests. The only reason any of their culture has even been preserved is by the virtue of europeans introducing new technologies to the region
>there's a creme brulee, a mousse, various sauces and purees and some other bits and pieces.
all of which could be served in a format which is actually edible
you serve me food on a table like that, and I'm not going to your restaurant. It's like that guy on top chef the other day who served his dish on rocks he found laying outside
>all of which could be served in a format which is actually edible
the only thing you think is making it 'inedible' is the surface it's served on, it's functionally identical to putting it on a plate, i don't understand what you're trying to prove here. the creme brulee is placed on a flat surface. the frozen mousse is shattered and comes to rest on a flat surface. the whole dish is just layered on a flat surface and you're invited to dig in. how is this not edible.
It's not meant to be deep you mong.
It's just supposed to be a meal thats tasty for more senses. It's like eating a mosaic and watching it being made, in this specific dish.
Nothing about "getting it", there's nothing to get. Some people just think its pretty and tasty and a nice experience to share with friends, like interactive art they can experience and talk about.
And it tastes delicious, and there's a ton of variety.
Seriously, the only people acting like this is pretentious are the people who have clearly never been.
I'm sorry, but it's so painfully transparent how small your world is, I laugh everytime I read how you think its supposed to be "deep"
>mfw teaching you common sense shit
Wonder what the minimum hiring age is at Chez Tryhardz...I got two toddlers who could use jobs.
>I-I LIKE SUCKING SAUCES AND POWDERED SHIT OFF A TABLE!
>I PAID A LOT OF MONEY FOR IT
>IT MUST BE G-GOOD
>YOU JUST DON'T UNDERSTAND
>LICKING DRIZZLED SAUCE OFF OF THE EDGE OF MY TABLE MAKES MY EYES HUNGRY
For real though this is all just pomp. Fine dining has become all presentation and no substance, and people still pay out the ass for it. There's no "getting it", there's no deeper meaning, and any satisfaction you get out of it is you just trying to justify spending probably a hundred dollars for assholes in smocks to come throw shit all over your table.
Fuck, I could get that experience at any mickey D's.
It's bizarre how simplicity, even austerity, becomes its own sort of pretension. If you have the kind of restaurant that doesn't need to pander to the lowest common denominator's comfort zone, why not do weird shit because it's interesting?
It just doesn't make sense to me. If you buy into haute cuisine's own bullshit mythology you'd just accept this stuff without question. If you recognize that anyone can throw on a table cloth and some candles, get a nice bottle of wine, and cook their own damn steak, and that going to a fancy restaurant is all about the experience, you'd presumably be more open to people experimenting with how that experience is presented. I don't even think the stuff in that webm even looks that good. But at least it's an interesting idea (even if it's been done before)
>I don't have a comfort zone
That is exactly what someone with a truly minuscule comfort zone would say. Would you eat barely cooked, barely cleaned warthog anus? No? Then you do have a comfort zone. You have to be a special kind of prissy, dainty little flower to only be able to see the world in terms of "things I like" and "things that are objectively wrong."
>pouring chocolate syrup on a table is important to culture
Dude kill yourself. I'm honestly advocating suicide.
>Would you eat barely cooked, barely cleaned warthog anus?
I wouldn't eat cyanide either
not eating something that will make you sick is different from eating something people might think is gross. I would have absolutely zero problems eating warthog anus if proper precautions against food born illness and parasites were taken
food is meant to be eaten, not looked at. this idea of fine dining is a cancer that needs to be cut out, and fortunately its on its way out as we speak. People are rejecting the idea of $250 entrees because they realize food isn't meant to be elitist the way the french have traditionally insisted it should be.
there's a reason you rarely see restaurants with wait staff walking around in tuxedos anymore. Those ideas are dying, and chefs are more interested in sharing their recipes with as many people as possible as opposed to only those they deem worthy to eat them.
>not eating something that will make you sick is different from eating something people might think is gross.
But people DO eat it and they don't get sick
>I would have absolutely zero problems eating warthog anus if proper precautions against food born illness and parasites were taken
Oh, bullshit, of course you would. And don't you dare try to bring offal into this- not being among the prissiest of prissy first worlders is not even remotely the same thing. Just admit you have a comfort zone and stop putting on airs for an anonymous Chinese cartoon forum
Well, it's pretty unlikely that they'd be doing that if it made them sick. People tend to learn pretty quick what is and isn't dangerous and avoid things that are. So yeah, it's pretty unlikely that they all got sick immediately after filming.
what does that have to do with food poisoning?
Anyway, that particular incident is explained in a lot more detail in one of Bourdain's books, though it's been long enough since I've read it that I can't remember which one. At least one of his books sort of followed his trips on No Reservations so that would be my starting point for looking for it.
>People tend to learn pretty quick what is and isn't dangerous and avoid things that are.
Uneducated third worlders aren't known for following this time. Jamaicans eat ackee and Africans eat poison frogs. Circumcision is still widely practiced even in the first world.
>what does that have to do with food poisoning?
There's more to food borne illnesses than food poisoning. Having parasites infest your digestive tract can't be good for your health.
when I was in 5th grade I had a pretty small group of friends, and one day one of the dads took everybody out on his boat to go clam digging
except for me, they didn't invite me, and I'm still sad about it
I know what you mean. It's a funny feeling when you suddenly come to realise none of your friends are really your friends. When you notice they're not interested in keeping in touch with you, it's always you putting all the effort into keeping in touch with them.
Next faggot who sticks his fingers in front of the camera like that gets his goddamn hand chopped off.
>It isn't served on a plate!
>I've suddenly lost all sense of how to eat!
Damn son, don't ever go to a fancy restaurant. You might accidently gnaw off your own foot in a panic or something.
>its now a hard g
Says who? This was 29 years ago, not a thousand years ago, you faggot. people that say it with a hard g are not only wrong, they are hard headed niggers that dont even bother trying to pronounce somthing they way it was intended.
In that article it says Mac users tend to use a hard g. Mac users.
You know what else Mac users are known for? Being dick sucking liberal faggots.
The paper on the can is some waxy bullshit, it doesn't burn like normal paper. I guaran-fucking-tee lava is hot enough to set normally combustable shit on fire.
Assuming you didn't let the lava fall down deeper into your body via gravity or some shit and just let it drip against your skin, you're probably looking at some scarring and third degree burns, maybe it'd fry the nerves too. You'd live, though.
>hey, here's that dessert you ordered
>we're out of clean plates so we're just going to dump it on the table.
>if you want more, just grab some of the cake we crumbled up in front of one of your friends, it's like, family style or something
>if you think the cake is too bland, just dip it in the tiny pools of chocolate we drizzled all over your fuckin table.
>oh yeah, and i guess since this is a fancy restaurant, here's a shot-glass full of half-assed creme brulee or some shit, i don't know
>that'll be $90 a plate plus tip
also the dessert itself appears to be an incredibly boring crumbly cake with white, milk and dark chocolate drizzles, topped with what appears to be either chocolate-covered espresso beans and/or giant capers.
man, i LOVE it when bartenders manhandle the ice for my drink for like ten fucking minutes before they put it into my fucking glass.
is this the same bar where that guy ordered a shot of rum decanted with smoke?
how long do you think rich dudes have to wait between drinks at this magical bar?
G can be pronounced hard (go) or soft (gelatin).
Please stop. It's pronounced with a soft g because of the peanut butter commercial.
Many people say it with a hard g. It's fine, but it isn't what he intended.
Doesn't matter how the creator pronounces it if the widely accepted pronunciation is different. Much like how the definition of literally doesn't matter because so many people were using it incorrectly that they actually added a new definition for it to the dictionary.
Japanese bartenders are horrible, they know how to make drinks one way and will have a mini break down if you ask to have a drink a certain way.
That way of thinking might be good for sushi, but it's awful for making drinks.
>tfw work in a lamb processing factory
>tfw know that a bonesaw man could have done this entire job in under 3 fucking seconds
robot room is only good for diving the lamb in half.
Boner could have done this faster, i bet that robot leaves a load of bone chicps in it too, that would have to be caught later down in line and sent back for a human to redo.
It's not, it's too slow.
>not knowing about day AND night shifts that keep factories working 24/7
You forget that in food processing equipment HAS to be cleaned, you have no idea how fat, blood and meat can find its way into tiny little nooks and those robots have plenty of them. The upside is robots dont have unions.
theyre useless and break down all the fucking time. They're good for basic, easy jobs only. They do a mid processing job like splitting hind/fore, weighing product and sectioning them off into correct weight ranges and stripping meat from ribs on things like french racks. this helps speed up processing, though
Instillation cost more like it, most factories are one bad season away from going belly up, they cant afford to install shit like this when they have humans that do a faster job and only need to be paid for once a week.
>ignoring literally every other piece of moving equipment not covered in plastic
The robot isnt even fully covered, only the main body. Robots have their uses, but theres zero reason to overlook human skill just because you want to usher in our new overlords before theyre properly developed.
26 year old here, I realized the same.
My friends from HS that I spoke to via IM / XBL nearly every single day through college have all drifted away. I try to talk to all of them, especially when we're all in town together, but none of them really seem that interested in actually talking to me.
I'm lucky that I have a gf who is pretty much my best and only friend, but other than that I am pretty much friendless. I just don't really get along with anyone from my work that well.
Mostly just because it looks neat. You could maybe argue a sphere has the lowest surface area to volume for cooling without diluting, but 90% of the cooling effect comes from melting anyway, so the effect is pretty minimal.
Except one clearly has chocolate sauce over it at the start of the WebM while they only just start pouring it on the other?
>I've seen this webm at least 20 times
Maybe watch it 20 more?
I'm a different anon, but I'm not saying you're wrong. He can name it, set a pronunciation for it, and that's about it. Whether people actually do that is a stupid thing to argue about.
