I'm starting to learn how to cook more sophisticated things. Can you recommend books or techniques for 1) spicing dishes well, and 2) blending flavors effectively? It seems this often involves a non-obvious step or ingredient that I'm not aware of. [more inside]
Having read about the negative effects of artificial sweetener on gut and thyroid health, I’m trying to eliminate my usage of Sweet ’n’ Low (the pink packets). If you were able to wean yourself off of artificial sweeteners, how did you do it? [more inside]
I'm looking for recipes for ice cream without added sugar—recipes you've made and can vouch for, preferably. The ones I've tried haven't been that great and I want to try again. Any flavor, any base ingredient (dairy-based creams and milks, almond milk, coconut milk, etc.), and any kind of sweetener (sucralose, xylitol, erythritol, stevia, etc.). What's the stabilizer or thickener in store-bought no-sugar-added ice cream that gives it the texture of real ice cream? Xanthan gum? Guar gum? Alcohol? [more inside]
Do you have a brownie recipe that makes the deepest, richest, choco-crazy brownies? One that beats the box? Because my eyes were opened recently to a realm of brownie I didn't know was possible. [more inside]
I just opened a package of Florida Crystals Natural Sugar, and the odor is quite strong. It's difficult to describe, but it's kind of acrid/acidic. Can I Eat It? [more inside]

Pretty simple: I'd like to buy dragon's beard candy (aka dragon's hair/whiskers), a pan-Asian delight that's sort of like cotton candy, only more delicious than cloying. I've only found one eBay seller offering it. Is there any place online and/or in the greater Philadelphia area where I can find it? I've searched literally a dozen Korean and Chinese supermarkets, and NO DICE.
I am a new owner of a brie baker, courtesy of my mom's de-cluttering efforts. Aside from baking brie a million different ways, is there anything else I can make in a brie baker, or is this a single-use item? If it matters, the brand is Village Gourmet, and its never been used. Google is failing me (I'm just getting the same brie recipes, no matter how I ask the question). Thank you!
A while ago, a co-worker was joking that his dietary restrictions were that he could only eat foods that were gluten free, kosher, vegan and halal. I'd like to find such a food to bring in. Is there anything that meets all four requirements? If not, what foods would meet as many of these as possible?
Where in London can I look over an interesting list of high-quality loose-leaf teas, have one prepared for me at the proper temperature and brewing time, and then sit down and enjoy it on the premises? [more inside]

I'm teaching English in Japan. I help with English Club and the students (ages 12-15) have asked to cook something with my help. Unfortunately, I'm not very good at cooking. [more inside]
Hi. I want a white wine in the $7 - $10 range that is drier than dry. Meaning, in my own limited experience, one that is less sweet-tasting to the palate than, say, Bay Moon (by Trader Joe's), Ecco Domani pinot grigio (Italia), & Veramonte (Chilean) sauvignon blanc, that being currently and slightly the most palatable, the less cloying. The greater the alcohol content, the better (I'm not a drunk and even if I were, no sermons, please...hic@!). I mean, I'd rather drink brandy than most wines. [more inside]
Hi, we have guests visiting us in Minneapolis for the 4th of July holiday weekend. We've got a minivan and designated driver and we'd like to drive around and visit a number of small breweries/brewpubs tomorrow. We took them to Indeed, Fulton, and 612 last time they were in town. Where should we go? Surly seems like an obvious possibility, but where else?
I've tried making custard buns both these and these and can't get the custard to come out properly. It doesn't come together smoothly, clumps and then over thickens. I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong but I was hoping for some help! [more inside]
I'm a lazy cook so instead of going out and buying all of the suggested spices for this butter chicken recipe, would it still taste good to use Penzey's chili powder and smoked paprika?
Searching for foods (or recipe ideas) along the theme of recursion (i.e., repetition of items in a self-similar way). At some point I'd love to have a dinner party with the theme of recursion. Further info and examples below. [more inside]
I'm looking for a recipe for seriously firey, not too sweet or floral, ginger cordial. I'm not looking for a recipe that I'll sip and say "bloody hell that's hot", I'm looking for one that will temporarily rob me of the power of speech. [more inside]
