    Often wondered how certain things became "yummy." I mean look at cocoa beans and coffee. Who picked them off a tree and said "you know what, if I mix in sugar and cream it will be delicious."

    My real motivation for quitting shellfish generally was not the mere desire to start eating kosher (which was a gradual process), but because I was in a market with live seafood and saw a crab crawling around. It looked like a giant insect and I was suddenly grossed out. After that, I could not eat any more shellfish, whether crab, shrimp, scallops ... never liked lobster anyway, so that was fairly easy in any case.

    LOL seitan is good, i am making some on friday with my sister. Its made with vital wheat gluten...you make a dough of it and then boil it in a broth with your choice of spices for whatever flavor profile you are looking for. Cooking is nothing but chemistry.

    Yes, but.......I was relating a story to some students once about some idiots at a Domino's pizza joint who were putting their BOOGERS on some sub sandwiches, and then shipping them out to paying customers. These idiots were filming themselves and posting it all on YouTube. Of course they got fired, but it hurt Domino's business for the better part of a half-year, I think.

    Anyway, I was kind of SHOCKED by the reaction of one of my students, who just shrugged and said, "Hey, it's only molecules."

    I don't CARE if it's only molecules, man! It's GROSS!
