Went to my first fancy restaurant a few days ago, keep in mind, food pleb here.
I now understand why the portions are small and the prices jacked up, the food was the best tasting thing I've ever had the honor to experience.
Went to this place:
I had the Porcini Braised Lamb Shank and my girlfriend had the Roasted Cornish Hen.
With appetizers, desert, drinks, sparkling water etc. bill came to $144, $170 with tip.
Needless to say, was delectable and completely worth it, imo.
My question is, what is the most expensive place /ck/ has gone to and how was the food?

hello /ck/. I come to you because you are the board closest to the subject I am in need of information on.
I just realized that whiskey is what happiness is made of and I want to know more about it. is there some ebook or a wiki on whiskey? you know, whats the difference between bourbon and whiskey, how much it has to age, what the ingredients are, so on and so fourth.
pic related, it's the best whiskey I've tasted so far, have yet to try the 16 and 18 year old though.

sup /ck/, how do you make your hotdogs? my jimmies were mad rustled tonight. i have a favorite recipe for hot dogs where i fry them up in a grill pan over green peppers and white onion. well tonight my dad does it, uses vadalia onions and covers the whole thing so none of those great little burnt onions and crispy spots on the skin are there, instead this almost boiled bullshit texture and the onions and peppers this soggycrunch shitfest of bluh, vadalia onions give it fart flavor
but of course im the only one of my family who feels this way, everyone else likes it better. what do you think?

why are patatas bravas so hard to make?
Every time I make them, they have to pan fry for like 20-30 minutes before they turn all brown and crispy. The aïolli never ends up with the right consistency if I make it from scratch, and never ends up the right flavor if I just mix garlic, lemon juice, salt and mayo

Ok, /ck/ I need your help. I need to start eating healthier because I has the diabeetus, type II.
Problem is - I HATE vegetables. I'm a meat-and-potatoes typical amerifat (5'9"/240lbs).
I have lost 40 lbs over the past year, but I need to lose at least 50 more. I need to know how to cook some green veggies so they aren't completely repellent to me, and yet are still healthy. I know I can't just cover them in cheese sauce and expect them to be healthy.
Most issues I have with veggies tend to be either smell (broccoli smells like diaper shit), or texture (stringy/fiberous or mushy).
So, /ck/ I implore you - help me find 5 veggies I can eat and not yack due to the stench or texture.
I'm an OK home cook, and budget isn't so much an issue - I just have to overcome this hatred of all things green.
