Having browsed since insception, the makeup of this board nowawdays seems to be
40% NEETs comparing fast food
20% incompetent cooks asking stupid questions and posting jack
10% weebs arguing bout sharps and bastardising eastern cuisine
10% autists getting triggered over preferences
5% alkies
5% depressed industry chefs
5% home cooks with an ounce of skill and inspiration
5% or less semi intelligent discussion of food or drink.

Can't imagine many are over 30, but the lack of porn and pretentiousness (relative) discourages the likes of say, /b/ aged youngsters

And you'd probably get poopy pants. But I would absolutely try the curry in India too and happily shit myself. You know why? Because at least their curry is made with decent ingredients and not packed with artificial shit.Do you think the people at the top of the McDonald's corporate chain eat the shit they push on others? Guarantee you they don't. Probably have their own private chefs at home, the best ingredients, with the millions they pull in. Don't be a stupid asshole who falls for advertising.

>mcdo execs don't eat mcdo food
In the UK, there's a chain of "supermarkets," if you can call them that, called Iceland (pronounced ice-land, as if two words, not ice-lind, as the country). Iceland started off by selling decent quality frozen whole foods by weight at reasonable prices. One freezer would have frozen beef shanks, another frozen heads of broccoli or cauliflower, a third frozen whole chickens and a fourth frozen gammon and so on. That sort of thing. And customers would go from freezer to freezer filling up bags with the items they wish to buy and bring them to the till to be weighed and paid for, much like a green grocer or the produce section of a typical grocery store.
Nowadays, all Iceland sell are ready meals like horsemeat lasagne and bangers-and-mash plates where the sausages are only 42% meat and the rest being filler.
An interview a few years back with Malcolm Walker, founder, owner and CEO of the chain revealed that he only eats organic, non-GMO, locally sourced food from his own private gardens and farms and never eats anything from his own supermarket. He wouldn't touch the rubbish he peddles to the poor with a bargepole never mind actually eat it. And I suspect McDo execs feel the same about the stuff they sell at people, too.

If I wouldn't eat it myself, I'd never serve it to a guest never mind sell it to a customer as I find it a violation of personal integrity.
>>
>>8494878

Indeed indeed. People need to realize that corporate fast food chains do not care about quality, the health of their customers or anything like that. Their main goal is MORE PROFIT and they achieve this by clever, arguably false advertising. They don't give a shit if the stuff they are pushing can barely be considered beef or if it's packed with god knows. They want your money. Now if you know this and still want to eat their food on a regular basis I am no one to tell you not to, if there is one thing I hate in this world it is people pushing their views upon others, but you should all know that your health will eventually suffer. It is logic. If they are able to sell a "meal" for so cheap, imagine what it actually costs them to produce the food. Probably pennies. There is nothing in there good for you. Even the fucking pickles for god sakes PICKLES contain

>anymore

I don't know what your basis is for thinking you know what things were like in the last generation, or the one before that, but if anything younger people are actually more interested in cooking (or at least the idea of being into cooking) due to mass media turning it into a spectator sport, much like football or whatever.

Among people my age, I tend to be better friends with people who are "into cooking" because we have that in common. But there are lots and lots of people my age who are not into cooking. When I was in college we had plenty of people who were utterly hopeless in a kitchen. This is not new. It is not reasonable to expect everyone to have had the same experiences growing up as you. Some came from broken homes. Some were discouraged from trying things on their own. Some grew up poor and didn't have much opportunity to try new things or experiment with exotic ingredients. Some grew up rich and were cooked for by "the help".

If it seems to you as though older people care more about cooking, you should consider the fact that some of those older people were forced to cook from circumstances that they were exposed to throughout their relatively longer lives than people in your own age group. They may have had the same thoughts at your age as you are having now.

>Why aren't young people interested in cooking anymore?

I'd argue young people are far more interested in cooking than older people are.

Boomers are happy to eat out every meal or just make shit out of a box. Younger adults are much more health conscious and interested in cooking from scratch like our great-grandparents did.

People under 22 usually live at home or in a dorm though, so it's not like they would cook even if they wanted to.

Do you realize how many Sanders supporters voted for Trump in spite of Hillary? Believe it.
>>
>>8498306
Bernie lost to Hillary because the voters speculated that Hillary would stand a better chance against the then likely Republican opponents. No-one at the time seriously thought Trump would be the opposition. If given the choice between real reform (Sanders) and faux reform with pillaging and general madness (Trump) - people would overwhelmingly come out in favour of Sanders.
In the choice between business as usual with continued corruption, double-speak and more wars (Hillary) and flipping the fucking tables (Trump) - the people chose Trump.

This is what strategic voting gets you. This is what first past the post voting gets you. Jesus fuck, America, when will you fix you God damned voting system?
t. Rest of world.

I'm not trying to argue that Sanders wouldnt have beaten trump, I think you might have misinterpreted what I meant or maybe i didnt make myself clear enough.
I'm not talking at all about Hillary vs. Trump.
I'm saying that the guy I was responding to>>8496482
was trying to say that Bernie lost the nomination because of corruption. That isn't true. He lost the nomination because Hillary won a shitload more states and had 3 million more primary votes than he did.
Does that mean our system isnt fucked or that Bernie wouldnt have been a better candidate? No. Does it mean that strategic voting didnt fuck our country? No.
It just means that its extremely disingenuous to say that Bernie lost the nomination because of corruption or that he was screwed out of the presidency. He lost the primary, he wasnt fucked.
Yes, this had implications for the general (Bernie bros voting for trump, etc.). But it wasnt unfair, its just how it worked out.

Bullshit. He did that for approval polls

because cooking online is a hellhole. Tried to find toddler friendly recipes where they can help an adult cook, and you get slideshows of hippie food like "mango salsa salmon." the fuck outta here with that shit
>>

>hippie food like "mango salsa salmon.

Mango salsa was huge in the 90s, it's hilarious that to this day it still is triggering people who live under rocks somewhere in flyover land.

I wonder when the cupcake fad will hit your area.
>>
>>8498680
was it a hit with toddlers? because fuck you.
>>
>>8498687
Why wouldn't it be? Are you afraid mangoes will give your toddler autism because you didn't have it vaccinated? What exactly is the issue?

I think the current generation of 20somethings cooks more than our parents' did at the same age. I'm 22, been fed processed microwave crap all my childhood, moved out at 17 and learnt from scratch.
There's a growing distrust towards "big food", and most people I know generally tend to like knowing what they are actually eating.

Shit man, switch from the slow cooker to the pressure cooker. Get the same quality or better as a slow cooker in a fraction of the time.

1) Kids shouldn't be having fish until 2 1/2 - 3 years at the earliest because their digestive systems are still developing & because of potential mercury poisoning issues
2) Sounds like an overly fancy meal for kids to cook, eat or appreciate when they're looking for hands-on recipes with dough or cheese sprinkling for kids to participate.

>>8498673
My son is 13 months old and he eats whatever we eat. Last night we had pesto salmon, baked acorn squash, and steam broccoli and he really like everything. Last week he had gyoza, rice, couscous, meatballs and spaghettini, roast chicken, mashed potatoes, sweet potato, avocado, etc.

Granted he isn't at the picky age, but if you don't offer diverse foods to your children you won't know what they like. Also, keeping them on hot dogs and chicken tendies is not going to promote healthy diverse eating habits.

Kids like fish in many parts of the world, North Americans typically don't eat much fish or associate it with a child's diet. Mangoes taste good and children like those, so why is it ridiculous that a child wouldn't like this?

You don't have to feed your child what you ate when you were younger. It's fun to give my son different foods and see what he likes, it's also good in terms of reducing food allergies and ensuring good nutrition.

I think I had my first mangosteen like 3 years ago, but some of his baby foods were "coconut mangosteen amaranth quinoa" or some shit. It's good that kids are eating better and more interesting foods.

>Kids shouldn't be having fish until 2 1/2 - 3 years at the earliest because their digestive systems are still developing & because of potential mercury poisoning issues
This isn't true at all. You have to be intelligent about what fish you feed them, where it's from, how frequently they eat it, etc.

As for the "developing digestive system", what exactly are you talking about?
>>
>>8498716
Dude do you know how many asian and pacific islander kids have fish at a young age? That doesn't add up.

No. Mercury and lead are a hasard to developing brains and fetuses because they cause developmental retardation. It has nothing to do with the "digestive system".

Your mom obviously gorged herself on tuna while having you.

>>
>>8498540
Clinton's camp used the media and party influence to force both Hillary and Trump into the US general election. They assumed Hillary, their chosen candidate, would win that contest. It's ironic that they are crying about it being rigged after doing more underhanded shit than any other group to influence the election.

Read the Wikileaks sometime, they are very revealing, and it's not illegal to own a copy, despite what CNN said.

>was trying to say that Bernie lost the nomination because of corruption. That isn't true. He lost the nomination because Hillary won a shitload more states
The latter does not disprove the former. If the latter happened because the Democratic party early on decided to discredit Sanders and push Hillary, then yes, it might indeed be said to have been the result of corruption.

Kennedy was a progressive and Trump is a hardcore right winger, I don't see how they're even remotely similar

Nah his protectionist measures are diametrically opposed to free market capitalism.

>>8501309
His platform overall is very right wing, his VP is a hardcore right winger, his cabinet is filled with hardcore right wingers, and he is a hero for hardcore right wingers (including white supremacists)

19. When I 15 I moved to Italy for a brief amount of time and I attended a cooking school there for one year. Unfortunately I had to move back to the USA, but ever since then I've been really involved in my cooking, and I try to cook every night.

srugeling to keep passion for cooking alive

fresh food is just too expensive, when I can buy a huge pizza for $5
every year food bets more expensive, but my wages arn't rising

as a result I have to work more hours, I barely have time to cook anything that takes more than a half hour

Why does this meme perpetuate that fast food companies are some nefarious conspiracy to poison the poor? They sell cheap, good tasting food to people across the world. They are totally up front about the nutritional content of their products. There's no deception. And furthermore most of it is fine to eat regularly provided you're conscious of your portioning.
