That looks like a french bulldog more than a pig.

Can we ban Arsenal from this thread?

Don't really get the hate for vegans, regardless of whether or not you agree with the health/environmental rationale frequently provided. In the same way as you can get a diverse range of flavours and textures from meat and fish products, there's also a branesploady diversity of fruit & vegetables to explore. Even when it comes to raw food, there's a surprising amount of coincidence between the techniques used in its preparation and the techniques found in molecular cooking. I like a sloppy burger as much as the next person but there's also something to be said for the surprising results you get when you have to re-think elements of food that have hung around out of tradition or convenience.

But: pushy vegans and fast food junkies alike are annoying.

Chicken with roasted broccoli, zucchini, carrots, whole garlic cloves – all on mushroom oatmeal.

(Basically cooked steel cut oats like a risotto. Instead of water, I used the liquid from reconstituting a bunch of dried shiitakes. Chopped up some of the mushrooms and threw them in at the end. I loved it.)

This thread inspired me to get some donuts this morning. They weren't nearly as good as the ones recently posted look.

Duck breast cooked sous vide with an orange sauce and lentils du puy. No fancy equipment needed, just a pot of hot water and a thermometer:

i don't hate vegans at all, but i just can't respect their opinions on food when they entirely shutter themselves off from, basically, the main thing that has sustained humans for the entirety of our existence. i have a lot of veg/vegan friends and eat that way pretty frequently, and it can be great, but how can i really trust you on food if you refuse to eat a rack of ribs, or prosciutto, or a fucking egg? i dunno, i'm not bitter about it, it's their loss really (until my heart explodes from too much foie gras)

I don't trust anyone who doesn't eat cheese.

Their donuts are so bomb. Love the lil cinnamon sugar donut holes that you get while you wait for takeout. Chicken biscuit w/ hot sauce and honey butter reigns supreme.
