Food can be just food, or it can be a combination of art and food.
Once your palate moves past thinking a Big Mac is the best, you can evolve into appreciating appearance, smell, taste, and texture. But Mcdonalds needs patrons, so it's a good thing some folks have the opinions they do.

you'll find me with two fistfuls of Big Mac somewhat more than occasionally.

Not saying they don't have their place, but when discussing fine dining, well, Let's just say I doubt anyone ever considered Ronald McDonald as equally adept in the kitchen as Emeril.

That may be true but McDonalds spends a considerable amout of time on money making the advertising of there food look good in print and on film.

The fact that the item you recieve bears little resemblence to the picture you ordered from is always a little dissapointing.

Nothing tastes finer than a bite of Big Mac, then a couple of fries, then a sip of Coke.

Well...lots of things may taste better....but its still pretty damned good.

Sort of like Michael Douglas at the Whammy Burger.

I grew up in rural Lincolnshire at a time when Mcdonalds only had "resteraunts" in larger towns and cities, I was 12 the first time I went on a school trip to London.

I was really exited but when I opened my big mac I realised there was something wrong and went to take it back.

The teacher informed me that it was in fact supposed to be all soggy and sweaty like that but I was unconvinced.

One bite and I understood.

Hugh fernly wittingstall tried to make one at home for a book he wrote and came up with an almost perfect recipe but I can't find it online.

I would like to see that if you can locate it.

In the meantime feel free to post any of your dishes as you are in the industry and can certainly contribute to the quality of the thread.

I had a look but cannot find it online, I will try and see if I still have the book kicking about.

I am no longer in the business, I got sick and tired of having to comprimise quality of produce and service to feed greedy owners and there need for flash cars and expensive holidays.

I was never classically trained so could not go down the Michelin route but my last job about 5 years ago I replaced a chef that went to work at the Fat Duck(Heston Blumenthials joint) and used to work a few miles down the road from one of Rick Stiens places, I have been told a number of times that my food was better than his which was always nice!

For a better solution: Try ordering a double cheeseburger (from the dollar menu) and request extra pickles and mac sauce.... Less bread, more yummy lol

Personally...for fast food burgers, I prefer Whataburger. For slightly upscale burgers just take me to Twisted Root in Dallas!! FAntastic burger and fried green beans to boot!!

Ha...reminds me of ordering a burrito at a Taco Bell in the mall when my kids were much younger. They had a pic of the burrito on the counter and what I received bore zero resemblance. I demanded what I ordered and pointed at the picture....my kids were horrified. lol

Whataburger advertises their burgers and food exactly as you get them in the "restaurant". The pictures, the tv ads...all true representations of what you would actually get. Not some falsified fantasy representation.

The one I was looking for was from a book of collected newspaper articles.

I can't remember everything but I do remember secret sauce is 1 part tomato ketchup, 1 part mayonaise and 1 part UHT semi skimmed milk.

You also have to wrap them in greaseproof paper and put them into a low oven for 15 mins to recreate that "fresh" taste of a big mac, he even specified how thin to cut the gherkins and lettuce.

It really did make a damn fine approximation of a big mac.

Hi guys

This seems like the place to ask for help, I've just been to my butcher and got the usual rib of beef, belly pork, etc, etc, etc, but I also bought some veal steak. This may be hard to believe but I don't ever remember eating veal, yes yes yes I know it's weird.

So I was hoping for some advice, how would you guys and gals deal with this cut of meat ?

Thanks in advance

Cody

Bone in or bone out?

Veal is just beef but from the male offspring of dairy cows and slaughtered younger before being weaned.

As long as you bear in mind it does not have much fat you should be ok.

A good way of avoiding it drying out is to flatten it out with a mallet and then breadcrumb it, pan fry in a little oil and a lot of butter, The italians serve it with a tomato and herb sauce and potatoes/ vegatables but it's also great with chunky chips and a green salad.

Theres a lot of misunderstanding about veal, if possible try to go for Rose veal as it's a little more ethically farmed.

beat the holy hell out of it with a mallet, then dredge in flour->milk/egg->breadcrumbs. Fry until its smiling at you with golden love.

Ever make cream gravy, southern US style? That would be good on it, maybe with some fried potatoes and a fried egg.
