Hello friends, and welcome back to Will It Sous Vide?, the column where I usually make whatever you want me to with my immersion circulator. Today we're making a sexy little dish that's impressive without requiring a whole lot of effort on your part: Sous vide lobster tails.
Cleaning out your house is a monster job, physically and mentally. Every decision to toss something becomes a reckoning of your lifestyle. Even when you decide to get rid of a hat, a DVD or a vase, you have to decide whether to give it away, sell it or actually toss it. Today let's just focus on the easy decisions: The stuff you can actually throw away, recycle or (good for you!) compost.
When we rounded up our staff's Weekly Upgrades last Saturday, our editors were deep cleaning our apartments, switching to standing desks, and re-tooling our writing routines.
With Valentine's Day just around the corner, it's time to start planning a fabulous spread for your significant other. Assuming they aren't lactose intolerant, a cheese platter is a pretty good way to go - but only if you don't skimp on quality. As luck would have it, the 2018 Australian Grand Dairy Awards have already done the hard work for you.
It is, ironically, difficult to have a pleasant date night on Valentine's Day, when every "nice" restaurant replaces their normal menu with a mandatory and expensive prix fixe. Some couples actually like those dinners, and have a fun pre-packaged date night. Other couples like to cook at home, or to ignore the holiday altogether. But if you want to have a typical "date night" out on February 14, your options will feel limited. Here's how to navigate that strait.
Today, Amazon finally released its Echo smart speaker range in Australia. With multiple versions hitting store shelves at the same time, there's a lot for prospective buyers to unpack before making a purchasing decision. Here's a rundown of each model, with links to buy.
The baby of the bunch, subscription dog box service Golden Swag was founded last year by Rebecca Lindsay, and is run with help from her dogs Malley and Moose. Located on the Gold Coast, it is the only subscription dog box specifically curated for one particular breed – golden retrievers. Of course, this doesn’t stop other medium to large dogs from enjoying it as well.
I was mildly sceptical of this box when I first heard of it. Founded last year, run by one person, and specialised toward a single breed? It seemed like a venture too small and specialised to last. But upon receiving the box, I was happily surprised by its presentation and quality.
We were invited to KFC's flagship store in Mascot NSW to see how the company makes its chicken first-hand. We were shown every step of the process; from how meat is stored and prepared to the various ways KFC keeps its "secret" herbs and spices out of the hands of suppliers. Read on for a full kitchen tour.
Much has been written about the exorbitant price tag of avocado toast. According to some, the swanky brekkie treat is responsible for shutting millennials out of the housing market.
Hyperbole aside, there's a good reason to give up this uber-hipster staple. They're actually not that healthy for you - especially if you're trying to lose weight.
People often hurt the ones they love, and people who work with and around food are no exception. What other possible explanation could there be for cooks, bloggers and content creators repeatedly subjecting the avocado to all sorts of heat-based tortures? Avocados need nothing more than a sprinkling of salt to be utterly delicious and cooking them is a goddamn culinary crime.
Arepas, those golden brown discs made of corn masa (dough) that usually get stuffed or topped, are the "daily bread" for a lot of Latin Americans (especially if you hail from my home country of Colombia or neighbouring Venezuela). Although not technically a bread, they can be consumed at any time of the day, much like the leavened stuff. They're served up plain alongside a steaming bowl of frijoles (beans), buttered for breakfast and topped with a fried or scrambled egg, or stuffed with all sorts of goodies such as chicken salad or marinated strips of grilled steak. The options are endless.
