Ingesting Some More with Tunsie

Due to popular demand, our culinary expert is back to ruminate upon all things ingestible. This week, he focuses on items not found on most menus; you can find his musings in the comments section for this post. I'm certain these will dishes made with ingredients not found in my pantry. My pantry contains dry pasta, creamed corn, and fifty different condiments. Make a recipe out of that, Rachael Ray.

I have been around the globe many,many times and I have eaten in some of the best places on earth.I can safely say that the best food architect on earth is related 2 me.i will not say who it is 4 fear you neophytes may try 2 kidnap this person and lock this person up in your kitchen.tunsie.tunsie.tunsie

In australia,more people r trying 2 eat healthy,and there is a competion for customers,so the restaurants all have open kitchens now so you can see what and how the food is prepared 4 you.I do not eat out until I know who is in the kitchen,and what people r preparing my food.how can you be on a special diet or a FAD diet and trust who is making your food.they will tell u anything,like we don't use MSG,u will know after u get sick.tunsie.tunsie.tunsie

Price and quality r not directly proportional.the more expensive restaurant is not necessarily the better restaurant.I have been in some restaurants which charge a lot for dinner and overcharge 4 thier drinks.Do these idiots think they r a good restarant or better yet do they think that after they rob a person,that person will come back 4 patronage.thank god 4 prozac.tunsie.tunsie.tunsie
