I have almost binge-watched this guy’s videos now and I really recommend his channel to everyone who’s interested in reasonable cooking aside from “quick’n easy” recipes. He’s a super likeable person (he seems to be bavarian 🙂 ) and he’s presenting his work in an understandable, instructive and educational way. It’s german language only, but for german-speakers it’s a must-see.
I’ve got a lot of rusty old tools lying around here that I thought were a reasonable winter project to clean and restore. So the first thing was to clean off the heavy “crust of rust” on them and the easiest way to do this is with an electrolysis bath. This is how it works and what you’ll need to do this by yourself. It’s cheap, easy and effective.
Stumbled upon this cool, easy to release knot on the internet. Does anybody know it’s name?
I want to make a YouTube recommendation this time. This guy’s YouTube channel as well as his Website have taught me a whole lot about some rather upscale cooking or respectively “fine dining”. It’s very much especially not the common “quick & easy” ubiquitous type of internet recipes.
He explains a lot, demonstrates everything in a very comprehensible way and at least for me, everything I tried turned out downright delicious.
A friend of mine has purchased this heavy, high-quality and sturdy gadgetry for him and his family: A Broil King “Regal 490” gas grill. Although I, personally, like grilling or BBQ over blazing coals far more, I have to admire the cool and easy to use thingy he just bought.
I used a lashing belt for setting up my hammock and someone I know who didn’t do this ever before asked me how a lashing belt works. Although it’s fairly easy I want to explain the general use step by step here:
I’ll need this one in the next days, so I tried to dig up some long forgotten boyscout knowledge from 30 years ago. Didn’t work… 🙂
Thus, here’s a very good video on how to tie a bowline knot the easy way and if I remember it right, this is the method that I learned as a boy. It is used for mooring ships as well as securing climbing harnesses, aaaand – in boyscout camps all over the world in every imaginable way.
The most common german word for it is “Palstek” in the north (and resembles the vast use in shipping). But I grew up in southern germany and I know it better as “Rettungsschlinge” (used e.g. by rescue personnel) or as “Ankerstich” (which is the term that I learned). Here’s more on it on Bowline – Wikipedia.
It’s very useful, fairly simple and absolutely worth the effort to learn.
Have a look at this guys cool YouTube Video:
Yes, it is nicely made, it’s informative and yes, I did learn from it… But the actual hammer is this elaborate article that guy wrote on reddit as a complement for the movie. This is downright premium content – if you’re even only slightly interested in asian cooking, this is a must read!
