Eating at work/meal prep during Passover

I've decided to keep Passover for the first time since I've been considering converting to Judaism since I got engaged. My fiance doesn't keep kosher, so we don't have that to contend with, but I'm going to follow his lead and avoid all chametz for the week. At home it doesn't seem too difficult, but I have a formula I follow at work that I'm not sure how to manage without rice or pasta or grains. [more inside]

Vegan cookbooks or websites for the Eastern European palate

For health reasons, my in laws need to change to vegan / Mediterranean diet like yesterday. These are folks who are used to schnitzel, potatoes, soups with mayonnaise and sour cream.

I don't know how to turn my oven on

I must be the greatest moron on the face of this planet. So, I moved to a new apartment. I want to use its oven. And I have no idea how to turn it on. This is what it looks like. It's gas on top, but the oven is supposed to be electric. It's plugged in. But what the hell do I do? Just cranking the timer doesn't work. There's no button to just push to say "go". I don't know what's going on. What do I do?

Scaling up sourdough bread baking

This week I will be baking a LOT of sourdough bread. Like, 4-6 loaves a day. I have a great starter and I get good results from folding instead of kneading, and a slow cold rise overnight. I've never made more than two loaves at a time though. Can I mix it up as one big batch or is it better to make multiple smaller batches? If the former and I'm quadrupling the flour and water, do I triple the starter too? And would I split it after the autolysing stage before folding, or after folding when forming the loaves?

My muffin recipe is missing the qty of flour. Can you figure it out?

I found my mom's beloved Zucchini Muffin recipe, but it's missing the quantity of flour and has a questionable amount of sugar. Can any bakers reverse-engineer this basic recipe, and check if the amount of sugar sounds correct? [more inside]

Restaurant for large group dinner in NYC

I've been tasked with organising a large group dinner for some overseas visitors in mid-May. Which restaurants would you recommend that would take groups of around 30 in Manhattan? Our budget is as cheap as possible - definitely under $60 per head, around $40 is ideal. We're trying to avoid booking out the whole place since that's usually very expensive, but if there are economical options please share! I know this is a long shot as all the restaurants I've checked are more like $100 per head for groups of this size... thanks!

How do I tell if this is Kahm yeast or something more sinister?

I've a new fermentation crock that's been going 3 weeks now with beets, radishes, and turnips. I pulled it out to check and there's some growth on top. I've well familiar with Kahm yeast on pickles and other things I've fermented, but the color of the beets has dyed everything so I'm not sure what the growth is on top. [more inside]

Allergy-safe snacks for kids

I'm looking for ideas for things to bring to school events that don't contain any common allergens (peanuts, tree nuts, lentils, sesame, milk, eggs, fish, wheat, soy). In particular I'm looking for ideas that require very little assembly, because my kitchen is not allergen-free. Reliable/trustworthy web resources or apps also welcome! [more inside]

Your Dueling Piano Bar Experiences - players and guests

So...my husband and I attended our first Dueling Piano Bar this past weekend. We think a place like this would THRIVE in our city. Before we start business planning please tell me what your experience has been with a little information. The city you attended. The cost to for the ticket - if any. What was served. Was there a minimum purchase. Things that made it unique. What did you love about the experience. What would you have changed. What would you have added to the experience. Any and all feedback is welcome! Thanks in advance!

Looking for recipes to feed a crowd of 30 on the regular

Every other week, my husband and/or I make a Eucharist dinner for about 30 people at the local church. The point of this dinner is to get parishioners and people in the community who might need dinner together at the same table. I’m kind of burned out on recipes and am looking for new ideas. Specifics below the fold. [more inside]
