Happy 2014 foodies, food enthusiasts, or humans that enjoy the intake of food. As I am still searching for work, I will try to post things from time to time.
This post will test the Garlic Press. This is the original experiment that gave me the idea for this blog.
I loved my Garlic Press. I got one several years ago and it was my first special kitchen tool. A gadget that allowed me to easily and quickly smother my food with the most glorious ingredient ever…
I am always taking submissions for cooking experiments. My goal is to compare cooking methods, ingredients and food ideas against one another to determine which is better or more preferable.
Learn about cooking with me. It can be fun!
Example: Does using chopped, diced or pressed garlic change the taste in simple tomato sauce? To test that, I would make three equally similar pasta sauces EXCEPT incorporate the differently prepared garlics in each one. Then I would taste test, hopefully with the help of friends.
