I've only recently converted my wife from the evil that is bagged, grated "cheese."
I'm ashamed to say I bought grated cheese the other day, but at least it was good cheese. I needed some Parmigiano-Reggiano and according to the deli-boy the grated was $1 less per pound...for the same cheese. I'm still a bit confused because when I placed my order, he grabbed chunks from the non-grated bin, weighed it, the grated it for me... and it was cheaper.
i was recently given the gift of a cheese slicer.
i love it. yes, i'm a cheap date if this is all it takes.
mom.....why is my hot dog taking longer than 10 seconds!!!!!!!
I was not aware that bagged stuff was cheese.
I love proper Parmesan! Buy a block of it and grate it as you need it. The flavour will be better and it lasts for ages. Buy a 'microplane' to grate it. Such a useful tool.
Mmmmmmmmm...... Cheese is good........
I have never brought pre grated cheese, and I never will.
Work of the devil it is.
put it in yoda speak.
I generally agree with all of this, but with an occasional exception. I get most of my cheese at a local cheese shop and will sometimes have the cheese guy grate cheese if I know I will use it right away (like if I'm cooking a big batch of mac n' cheese for a crowd or something). But that is starting with what I know is good fresh real cheese, and watching someone grate it.
I also hate sliced bread from the bakery but thats only because it stays fresher if you don't slice up all at once and you can cut it to preference.
You guys buy cheese? I just slaughter a freshly fed calf and remove the contents of it's stomach.
Cheese snobbery is so European.
I buy shredded, bagged cheese all the time. Somehow I have managed to not die.
No headcheese please
One taste of American Cheese and you'd know we're doomed
I hope you change your mind. It would be a shame to have lived your whole life without feeling superior to others because of your grocery shopping habbits.
The various time saving/overpriced processed supermarket products are usually altered, taste different, and/or don't stay fresh very long. Those salad in a bag things are evil too.
are you advocating for bagged cheese?
and the europeans are 'cheese snobs'? hell, they just know how to make better cheese than us.
i miss this place:
from a comment on the blog.
the dead kennedys had this dialed in years ago.
Shredded cheese can really bring out the anger in people.
I don't like grated cheese bought or grated on my own. I just break or cut chunks off. The grated stuff is just a mess, I hate cleaning and that stuff seems to find its way all over my counter and oven. I do buy pre sliced cheddar quite a bit though. When slapped on a ham sandwich and doused in mustard I can not tell the difference.
anger? i think you are projecting.
we are just trying to drill some common sense into your fromage-related purchases.
I wonder how they feel about this guy.
I was more referring to the blog. The guy is getting pretty upset about SHREDDED CHEESE IN A BAG. I don't know...it takes a little more than that to get me riled up, but I'm funny like that.
Right now my favorites are Ciao Angelo, Parrano, and Gruyere.
well i think that blogs are designed for histrionics, even if they aren't always truly heart-felt.
but the comment i pasted, i think, is extremely relevant to his point.
Agreed, it's not life or death. It's really more a quality of life thing (or more accurately, it's a quality of cheese thing). Frankly I'm more concerned with the ingredients and processes that go into it than whether it's grated.
I bought a bag of pre-cooked rice on the way home from the gym last night. I wanted some chicken and rice with curry and would have passed out if I had waited the hour to cook my normal brown rice. I felt some shame but it was tasty.
That pre-cooked rice works well when making burritos.
Not as good as rice in the rice cooker, but burritos take long enough to put together and cook without having to wait for rice.
how long does it take to steam some rice? 30 min?
multi-tasking, people. get the rice going first, then start cooking yr peppers/onions/protein of choice.
I like brown rice, it takes a good hour to cook. I'd rather buy the pre-cooked stuff in a pinch then settle for the white stuff.
what does the sushi chef say to you when you refuse his nigiri? or are you a sashimi fan?
there's always this:
I do prefer sashimi but if I was making sushi I would probably use sticky white rice. But I don't make sushi.
Brown rice sushi is getting more popular these days. There is a takeout place near me that specializes in it.
Why not just make brown rice in a rice cooker? They have ones that can make brown rice but usually it can't make as much as white.
You're not going to admit to rice snobbery, are you?
WHERE WILL IT END???
minute rice? maggots would be tastier.
edit - no snobbery here, just probing the taste/convenience continuum here...
It depends, are the maggots fresh free range organic or freeze dried?
free range, straight off the road kill in front of my house.
I wonder if you can get bagged and shredded maggot cheese?
