Amanda loves watching a international movie screening or Philadelphia sports activities, Tess is consistently in seek for the proper rotissierie rooster, Yasmine is coaching her fowl Zippy to grow to be a pirate—you get it. Not unrelated? All of the beneath. This is the SE BTS from the week (and listed below are all existing previous installments of this foolish column).
(What the Robots Perceive to Be) Onions
We found that Daniel has been having hours-long conversations with ChatGPT after he indicators off at work. About what, you may ask? I might be so glad to inform you! They’re chatting about all types of issues, however most urgent these previous few days has been Daniel’s quest to search out the mathematical equation behind chopping an onion perfectly. Take a peek at among the screenshots beneath (after which ignore all these grids) (and go reduce some onions for Nik Sharma’s newly printed pigeon peas and squash recipe).
Baking With out Bakers Current
Leah and Genevieve are, arms down, our Severe Eats baking rock stars. Nevertheless, Leah lives in Boston and Genevieve is on CURRENTLY mat depart (GY! WE MISS YOU SO MUCH!), so when it got here time to shoot Leah’s new Pennsylvania Dutch Apple Pie recipe this week within the NYC studio, it was as much as Daniel to tug it collectively for the photographs.
After simply two FaceTimes with Leah and solely 4 cases of claiming “I do not bake” (…to any SE reader who will get this Martin Quick SNL reference, you are his new favourite viewers member), the pie got here out scrumptious and you’ll observe the recipe beneath.
Mind Worms This Week
Along with the aforementioned outside-of-work pastimes, this workers spends an excellent chunk of its daytime hours speaking at one another about our “mind worms.” In case you are not as far gone as we’re, mind worms are pervasive ideas that may solely take over as soon as you’ve got ceded defeat to the web; they will let you know EVERY. SINGLE. DETAIL about an unimportant Web Factor, which then turns into the one factor you consider for about 48 hours (after which by no means once more). See: “mind rot,” “too on-line,” and many others. Regardless, most of our mind worms are Thanksgiving-ish at this level.
Grace actually can not cease making pumpkin-scented leche flans! Tess is usually simply curating recipe taxonomy pages in order that you do not all write in about how one can’t discover Kenji’s oldest stuffing recipe. We’re all trying ahead to EOY mind worms, most of which, we pray, can be Mariah Carey-centric and don’t have anything to do with meals science throughout common enterprise hours.
