I wonder what an executive summary of this thread would look like?

At least all the crap is centered here, the other threads are the height of civility.
Quite ungrateful, some of you on here. I sprinkled a bit of magical Aromat as an aside to my trusty financial advisor (constricted crocodile) and a nod to a mod regarding the natural beauty and graceful baring of Swiss cougars – and hey presto! No more pointless bickering about feminism, anti/pro woke, misandry/misogyny – MSG is the latest trend… or something something?

MusicChic, and there is Liebstöckel as well That's such a particular herb , so rare, so amazing, ..in fact Maggi's famous seasoning is based on that herb.

So Marton, how's school today? Were you doing some reading or what

How many times a teacher has to draw you, how : yes you have glutamic acid in tomatoes and in our food but it is in its natural form with other molecules ... Once you create the molecule in a lab then you sprinkle it on your food, it has a much more potency and it creates a huge reaction in the body. (even when we are unaware of it.. that's why when you eat chips you cant stop, when you eat cookies,biscuits,sauces,bread mixures...) and you always want more and more.

Then what I can suggest you for after-school acitivity is to sit down and think:

I go to Italy , I eat, gnocci,lasagna, parmigianna, marinara... do they open the Vetsin,maggi the ajinomoto magic? no.

Then you go to Greece... you eat dolmas, moussaka etc.do they add msg? no
Turkey,Spain etc..

It's is also true how the industry has been pushing their msg in our cooking and beef stock,chicken stock all that is msg loaded to a certain degree.

This is why so many chefs,restaurants are never using those chemical mixtures (in liquid or powdery form) and they're openly against it.

Now that we consume so much of processed flower(just like that sugar), glyphosate and the whole cocktail, cant really see the necessity.

On the other hand, that -groan msg squad- can always use as much as msg they want, I'm also aware I'm consuming it and I'm conscious about it.

The industry of course is not going to tell you it is bad bad. Just like for hydrogenated oil-margarine till the last drop they fought and margarine is still on the market except being banned in some places.
Tomatoes are chockful of glutamates, lending that incredible depth of umami flavor to any dish. Tomatoes are popular in Italian cuisine, used raw and sliced in antipasti dishes, and cooked down into delicious savory richness in sauces.

Perhaps your mother was a far better cook than you recall. Or the victims of maternal neglect really have bad taste?
When I was young we mostly ate in restaurants so I had a good education on how different meals should taste.
Maternal neglect? That is a different topic unless you have something you really need to share?

That's why you need to be fed tomatoes,parmesan and not and not a chemical that mimicks that acid that's produced in a lab and it's in the form of powder.

that's why, you need to be fed sugar but not asparatame

And it's funny how things go like in a boxer ring.Round by round.. first round, "here listen, this how it is"..2nd "no no look this" "3rd -well I AM NOT telling you are (insert discreditation) .. " 4rd " go to sleep" "stop using internet" and 5th The ones who are not participating but enjoying the show , start coming in and "AAA you guys are nuts" " how can you argue about things" "Dont you have something else to do"
it's a template

Excuse my misinterpretation. Thought you appreciated your mother’s efforts and seriously didn’t want to impinge on whatever circumstances.
Current understanding: your mother didn’t cook much and due to early/frequent exposure to eating out you can impartially judge restaurant quality. The few unfortunates who couldn’t avoid home cooking, however, aren’t capable of determining the true “gold standard” because they’ve been well and truly spoiled?

Re: Deleting My Account

I just came in here after an afternoon in the sun and a few glasses of wine and I don’t know what the heck is going on.

Cheers everyone! May you have a nice evening and not such a bad hangover tomorrow.

All the best - I actually think this thread is quite healthy, a bit like forcing people into family therapy, except we aren’t family and we don’t have to pay the big bill afterwards.

Absolutely, I know. It's not rare, we grew it, everybody dors back home. I was gonna write it when I wrote about magic čubrica just did not know how to write "libeček" in English. Lovage?

I have been cooking with this for a few years:



It is not bad, natural.

What you wrote about formulaic posting, yes, indeed. Strategies. But then most comm is formulaic, it's only easier to see online because it is written. And then you can spice it up with virtual msg aka emojis

I don't know what this thread is even about anymore, but after reading through some of it, I feel like I just snorted a big fat line of Aromat.

If this were a party in the Swiss countryside, we would have reached the "standing on benches swaying and singing along to Sierra Madre by the Zillertaler Schürzenjäger" part of the evening.

Re: Deleting My Account

How are we today

Well well, I got worried, seemed how few people here got scared I'll get the msg out of food, I had a look if there's some danger , looks all good , mark youselves -safe-
https://i.postimg.cc/m2kMKWy6/Screen...t-10-20-41.png

MusicChick , how dare you use the that dried herb when you can go and by maggi

Why flavour your soup with that when you can go and add few drops of Aromat ((eau, protéine de froment, sel), eau, arôme, exhausteur de goût (glutamate de monosodique, inosinate disodique), sel ?? why spoil the dish and your organism/health with just one dry herb when you can get yourself a nice dose of cute synthetic chemicals and ton of salt, here we have even a triple dose of msg!
just one msg is for losers

I was even thinking of what Marton said..italians eat tomato sauce.. why even bother eating the tomato ? I've seen how there's the tomato flavor produced synthetically , just buy the powder and you dont have to even bother buying them,cutting them..

Re: Deleting My Account

This week I was out of town and driving back I was so worried how once I come back I wont be able to fit in ever again in this topic , it was hard to adjust, , I put in a lot of effort and there I was ordering el triple de dos tequilas and fighting here prejudice, investigation about me and my coming out, editor bob disappearing, the highly disputed r-word, feminism, men sufferance,msg, .... the lesson is , never give up on your dream

One thing did strike me..people would fight hard and get angry because someone says how an added chemical just for a flavor is no good but are fine with walking around with plastic on their mouth and face in summer including children and they'd never fight that.

Re: Deleting My Account

yes but on the thread where they can, they dont. You see what I mean?

My sentence was a general observation. It looks as if people have build up of emotions, covid summer, fear, waiting for the better and then someone says "hey that corn sugar you put i the drink - no good" wow all of a sudden here's the enemy! burn her, how dare she say that )

Re: Deleting My Account

I feel compassion for those who are following this thread but never participating




must be really hard , cause probably they have their top3 , then they have some stuff to do ,they're out of focus then need to catch up!! then their fave turns into the baddie .. or they love one of us then we say some crap and then they're in a meltdown This topic is like a Series and we're in season 6, ep 02 .
