Q: Maybe it's a silly question, but why can't I find just plain olive oil in the grocery store? All I ever find is extra virgin! I need something a little less expensive and flavorful for everyday cooking needs.
Q: My family and I live overseas. I'd like to buy a meat grinder attachment for my KitchenAid to help diversify the ways we prepare chicken. We tend to stick to bone-in or boneless breasts, as we prefer the leaner cuts, but I'd love some other ideas on how to mix it up a bit more to ensure that dinner won't be too dry.
Q: I was recently in Prague and impulse-bought some "dried venison ham" on my last day. Now I've realized that I don't have a good sense of what venison tastes like and have absolutely no idea what to make with it.
Q: What's the best way to store alcohol? I made it a New Year's resolution to get better at making cocktails so I've been buying more booze. I don't use it that often (maybe once a month). I know some people store it in the freezer, but I don't know if that's the best way to do it.
Q: I got kohlrabi in my winter CSA. How can I prepare it? During the summer, I made kohlrabi pickles that were only okay. I also made a so-so slaw. I'm looking for creative advice for my next go-around.
Q: I am wondering how the general public feels about using the bones left over from a store-bought rotisserie chicken to make stock? The left side of my brain thinks it makes perfect sense, but the right side is a little freaked out for some reason. Any feedback?
Q: I recently started making sourdough bread and I was wondering what to do with all the extra sourdough starter. Throwing it away seems like a waste, but I can only find a few recipes for things other than sourdough bread.
Q: I enjoy cooking with soy sauce at home, but I've noticed a lot of recipes call for several tablespoons to a 1/4 cup, which is a ton of sodium. How can I keep the great flavor, but not take in so much salt?
