Worst thing I've seen is a gourmet hotdog. Haven't seen pig buttholes dressed up so nice since the Boobies up there

No salt. No pepper. No additional seasonings.

And for god's sake hide the ketchup.

You know, I wonder how the rest of my saffron would taste in Star Wars Mac-and-cheese??

I've seen caviar left on plates.
I've seen really good aged camembert cheese get nibbled on and then thrown away.  The rind is the best part!

And so, so, so many things with wine.
If you don't like the tannins in Cabernet or Chateauneuf-du-Pape, it's ok - there are plenty of other things you can drink.  But don't put seltzer water and an orange wedge in there.
Yes, it's nice that you have the money to afford $100 bottles of California Cab.  But rather than shotgunning that at 3 in the afternoon, why don't you get a nice steak and enjoy it with dinner?  You're throwing away more than half the flavor in that bottle by drinking it so quickly and without any food.

My wife bounced the Christmas prime rib off the kitchen floor as she was pulling it from the oven one year.  Kid saw but we blackmailed her into silence and served it anyway.  Three second rule doesn't take holidays off.

An old gf liked her filets well done.
In her defense, she would have them butterflied so they could be ruined faster.

I forget where is was, but ordered my steak medium-rare and that thing came out mooing.  Just a plate of meat and blood.  It was awesome.

At a relative's house after a funeral, a bottle of very nice scotch is pulled out.   12-year old single malt.  Hands are raised in reply to "who wants?".

Me:  How do you take it?
Brother-in-law:  Neat
Friend of family:  One ice cube
Aunt:  A little water
Buffoonish Uncle:  Diet Coke

Room got quiet for a sec.  A record needle scratch moment.

I puttered around the bar pouring drinks for myself and the other three and then discretely found a bottle of Canadian Club and mixed it with Diet Coke under the counter where nobody could see.  I'd rather put ketchup on a well-done steak than put Diet Coke into a beautiful glass of scotch.

The second photo was better. She resembles the kid in A Christmas Story who can't put his arms down.

Worst food faux pas I've personally experienced was my aunt using Italian seasoned tomatoes and garlic in a huge pan of gotabki.  Polack marries an Italian and now EVERYTHING needs garlic and oregano.

I take that back. My mom made Coq Au Vin with a stupid expensive bottle of wine I got her for her birthday because "it was all I had."

They lined us up in front of a hundred yards of prime rib. All of us, you know, lined up and looking at it. Magnificent meat! Really! Beautifully marbled... magnifique! Next thing, they're throwing the meat into these big cauldrons. All of it, boiling it. I looked inside, man, and it was turning gray. I couldn't farkin' believe that one!

I don't know if Trump will even eat fish - after all fish swim in fish pee.

Then again he seem to like Filet-O-Fish.

The world is Trump's oyster, but he prefers Filet-O-Fish
 Fish if he eats it I'm sure he insists be cooked well done (which is flat out wrong) and he would have a fit if served seared sushi quality tuna.

Not something I saw myself, just read about it. Early in Hitler's career he had a follower named Ernst "Putzi" Hanfstaengl, a very cultured art dealer with a degree from Harvard, of all places. He developed a fascination with the Corporal, and introduced him to all his rich friends, which was a real boon to the party's budget. He would have Hitler over for dinner pretty frequently, and would give him fine wines to drink. One evening he caught Hitler adding sugar to a particularly excellent vintage when he thought no one was looking, because Hitler was a farking philistine with no taste.

I made a real ass of myself at this trendy breakfast place with a really chic bloody mary bar.

disclaimer:  i farking hate bloody marys.  therefore, i know nothing about them.

so......meet some freinds (farkers, actually) for brunch.  we all order our main dish, and they got bloody marys and headed over to the bloody mary bar.  while they waited for their drinks, i went to this nearby little salad bar looking thing, where there were strips of bacon, olives, cocktail onions, fruit slices, pickles, sesame crackers, etc.  just all farking varities of things.  i filled my little plate with a piece or two of bacon, some olives, crackers, cheese, etc.

back at the table we're all talking and catching up, and I'm politely with a knife and fork slicing my olives and bacon and so on, taking these polite baby bites and i notice the TFette looking at me oddly.  finally she goes, "Uh.....hey.  What are you doing?  I mean....Those are bloody mary garnishes!  They're not, you know, snacks!"  i laughed and played it off but man did I feel stupid!

My brother overcooked a magnificent standing rib roast for Christmas one year because he forgot about carryover heat and ignored requests to take it out of the oven. My mother about killed him and still won't let him make her anything but burgers and chicken.

common sense is an oxymoron: Kobe beef burgers.


There's 200 pounds of hamburger cuts on a cow. The sin is when that's burnt and you can't get the waiter to come back.

that "Rogue Senior White House Adviser" twitter account that i hope and pray is true tweeted an official looking rider, basically, for the asia trip.  it was like, "40 towels, 30lbs of vanilla ice cream, 50lbs chicken fingers, X gallons of coca cola.....and no asian food will be allowed on the plane".

that struck me as funny but yeah, there were about 30 or so items that were 'must haves' and 'oh hell nos'.

if its fake its great comedy and if it is real.....*eyeroll*

Ordered a great Rib-eye from a chain steakhouse once. I ordered the baked sweet potato to go with it. Several minutes later my meal and my brother's meal arrived. It took me a few seconds to notice, but I couldn't believe what I saw on my plate. They spooned a huge glob of brown sugar right on top of my sweet potato?!? I asked the waitress "what the hell did you do to my potato?". Her reply was, "that's the way folks like it served". It seems here in VA folks like to ruin both their tea and sweet potatoes with sugar :(.

When I was a kid maybe 13-14 I was with a good friend and his mom.  We stopped to eat and he ordered a chicken fried steak.  When the food showed up he proceeded to drown the chicken fried steak in butter and maple syrup like it was pancakes or a waffle.  I was so dumbfounded I didn't know how to react.  To this day I haven't attempted this but I'm curious to try it.  Don't know if this is good or bad, it just is.

The scene:  Fairly upscale lobby bar at an airport hotel in Hamburg. The wife and I are enjoying a leisurely nightcap on the last evening of a great trip, and having a nice chat with the bartender (whose English is flawless because of course it is).

Couple of guys in business suits walk right up, interrupting the conversation, declaring they need a couple drinks over here. One guy orders a wine. The louder guy asks him how much they have left on their expense account, and then turns to the bartender asking "Wot's the best RUM you got?"

Bartender grabs the bar menu, deftly opens it to the Rums page, and helpfully points out the selection of aged premium rums at the bottom. "Yeah, but which one is the BEST?" he repeats. The poor barkeep begins to stammer something about matters of personal taste, but I see where this is going and suggest the Ron Zacapa 23 because I can see a bottle of it within easy reach (and because it's quite good).

"Right, I'll have it. On ice. With Diet Sprite!"

Coming right up, sir.

He pounds it in 30 seconds, says "bill it to room 517," turns and walks away without leaving a tip. The other guy follows him out, wine glass still in hand.

I shake my head and roll my eyes at the barkeep. "Yeah, it comes with the job" he offers. "It's not the worst I've seen, believe me."

There's no point to Kobe in ground beef. The point of Wagyu Kobe is added fat and tenderness. Grinding hamburger already accomplished this.

It was chicken fried steak so it was pounded beef, not chicken.  Same breading though it would probably work.

Oh right.  Steak.  That is nasty.  I have done that with chicken fried chicken in waffle batter, and it's tasty.  Prefer hot sauce or gravy to syrup, though.
