factoryconnection: I was all excited to turn my menus on to sunchokes and then I realized that they were "over" a mere few paragraphs down. Which is nice, since I don't have to find sunchokes now.Having never heard of "ramps," it is also convenient that they too are "done."
uber humper: be careful eating it raw. the oxalates can get some people.
aerojockey: RussianPooper: MICHAEL WHITE - EXEC CHEF/FOUNDER, ALTAMAREA GROUP(NEW YORK, NY)Most overrated vegetable: Portobello mushroomsMushrooms are not vegetables.If you are going to be pedantic, you need to include eggplant, bell peppers, summer squash, and truffles.
ChubbyTiger: anuran: Never liked kale even before it was cool. It's tough, bitter, and you need to freeze it or remove the central rib to make it edible.Broccoli is great; I think people get tired of it because it's available when just about no other fresh veggies are to be had.Biggest arsehole comment:Black truffles"Now that they are being farm-raised everywhere, we have seen a surge of very expensive flavorless nuggets showing up on menus. Rarely do I come across a head-turning burst of flavor from them. Wait until November and get the foraged Italian white ones. They are soooo much better!"They're the same farking truffle grown the same farking way as the ones you have to fight the pig over. And they taste just as good. What you resent is that people don't have to pay four hundred bucks an ounce for them anymore. Now that you can't lord it over the plebes any longer you need something else as expensive as printer ink to justify the prices on your menu.White and black truffles are quite different. I can afford neither, mind you.
Queensowntalia: Arugula is evil and must be destroyed. Old, dirty socks taste better.
Beerguy: jgbrowning: Evil Mackerel: Nice plate.This may be one of the best comments I've ever seen on Fark./work of art//hat's off to youI have the feeling that I am missing something here....
tricycleracer: The place I'm having dinner tonight makes killer Brussels sprouts.
