There's no way I can believe that Canada's fake Mexican food is better than the US's fake Mexican food. :lol:

Your "fries supreme" reminds me of Carne Asada fries...which I think I might need to walk done the street to get.

Mmm...carne asada fries...

Yeah, it's pretty magical. :)

There's also "potachos" (potato + nacho) which is similar but with ground beef and usually with wedge-style fries.

I never knew that making risotto is so very easy. Sweat onions (and garlic if desired) in butter, add rice, roast briefly, add some wine and seasonings, slowly add 50 ml of stock for every 10 g of rice used, keep stirring and voil?, you have a delicious dish. Add whatever you like - mushrooms, cheese, tomatoes... - and it becomes even better. :drool:

The cheese acts more like a seasoning. You don't really add it to make it cheesy (unless you really want to, that is).

I can do a great risoto but I can't cook regular rice.

I guess that's not normal.

Oh, absolutely - but she's only just started eating mozzarella, so I'll have to do a lot more convincing before I can take parmesan anywhere near her. Cheese on pizzas and lasagnas is fine, but then again that isn't parmesan either.

Nope. Do you cook rice the "German" way (rice and water in pot, cook) or the "Brazilian" way (roast rice, add water)?

For basmati rice, I just cook mine in a load of salted water for 10 minutes. Then I gently tip the water out and leave the rice in the pot with the lid on for a couple of minutes to steam dry.

You could also try the 2:1 water/rice method. You just cook the rice untill all the water has been absorbed, then move it off the heat and steam for 5 minutes.

I honestly don't think the roasting in the beginning does any good, so I guess I am German in that sense.
People seem to know exactly how much water and how much heat to use so that it cook with the need for more water added or stirring. Just turn on, water is gone, rice is cooked. I can't do that. :|

I've tried doing the roast/water add with pasta. Too much work for insufficient gain.

That looks like a little too much going on, but I would need to taste it to give a valid opinion. :D
