Share what’s cookin’ in your quarantine kitchen


People are cooking at home more than ever due to the current stay-at-home orders.

Slingshot, or S-Concierge, a white-glove concierge team who partnered with AT&T for a personalized approach to providing home entertainment and cellular phone needs, is offering a nationwide give-back contest for the month of April, inspired by the effects of COVID-19.

To enter, individuals get creative and film a short 1- to 2- minute video, making their favorite quarantine recipe. Closing date is April 30, when 10 winners will be chosen to win $500 based on the following criteria: creativity, tastefulness and the ability of the S-Concierge team to recreate the recipes.

The contest was initially conceived with the idea that many of those affected right now are hospitality and service industry professionals. So, are you a bartender shaking up some new cocktail concoctions? Or perhaps you just finally have

UNIX is the kitchen of the software chef

One of my favorite books on cooking is Alice Waters’s “The Art of Simple Food”. In it, there is a section where she describes the necessary equipment for a kitchen that produces resoundingly good food.

This is one of my favorite paragraphs from the book, because it reminds me of software and my philosophy toward software creation.

She opens with:

I am a minimalist in the equipment department.

UNIX is the minimal software development environment. Over time, people have created lots of alternative environments, IDEs (Eclipse), meta-IDEs (JetBrains MPS), and neo-IDEs (Lighttable).

But about 4 decades ago, operating under a set of severe hardware constraints, some of the world’s greatest computer scientists and engineers created a minimal, but highly functional, environment: UNIX.

I don’t like a lot of gadgets and I don’t like cluttering up the kitchen with things I rarely use. My friends tease me and call me a

Celebrity chef expands meals handouts to stadium complex

BALTIMORE (AP) — Celebrity chef Jose Andres is expanding his humanitarian efforts to feed Baltimore residents during the coronavirus pandemic, with plans to hand out thousands of meals each week near the homes of the Orioles and Ravens.

The Baltimore Sun reports that Andres’ nonprofit, World Central Kitchen, plans to hand out between 10,000 and 20,000 packaged meals every Saturday at the Camden Yards stadium complex.

The Salvation Army also is using the facility to deliver thousands of meals per day to seniors. World Central Kitchen has been negotiating for weeks with the Maryland Stadium Authority and Gov. Larry Hogan’s office to use the Camden Yard complex.

“This certainly isn’t how we planned to be using Camden Yards right now, but at the very least, we can use the space to help families in need during this crisis,” the Republican governor said in a statement Thursday.

Constant Running Kitchen Tap, Tap Replacement & Earthing

1. The tap will leak because one or both the ceramic 1/4 turn cartridge (hot and / or cold) have partly failed and is / are letting water pass through when closed.
2. If the tap also leaks from the swivel point of the spout, the seals between spout and body have failed.
3. As ShaunCorbs says, multiple faults point to tap replacement.
4. As ShaunCorbs also says, it’s not a straightforward job and you might be well advised to get a plumber to do it. The point where the hot connects isn’t obvious and might require taking the back of the cupboard out. The new tap may well have flexi connections, which would require the existing rigid pipework to be extended. Minimum 1 hour, maximum probably 3 hours, so say 2 hours. Depending where you are in the country could be anything from £40 to £300 for labour (plus

What It’s Like to Work in a Kitchen – Restaurant Back of the House

Dan Gentile/Thrillist

A healthy restaurant ecosystem has many components: a charming front-of-house team, cunning managers, and a motley crew of underpaid misfits that are actually cooking your food.

Unless you’ve worked in a kitchen, it’s hard to understand the chaotic dance of a dinner rush. Coded language, constant personality clashes, and thick-as-blood camaraderie are side dishes to every entree you’ve ever ordered.

To turn the world of cooks into an open kitchen, we asked back-of-house staff from around the country to enlighten us on some of the things that they’re always having to explain to their friends who they only get to hang out with on Monday nights.

Salt and butter are everywhere

But always unsalted butter. Also, half-sticks of butter look downright cutesy compared to 1lb blocks.
