Hello from SD/AZ/whereever I happen to be

I have been listening to Stella Culinary/Free Culinary School podcast for quite a while now.  I am really enjoying all the videos being produced currently.  I haven't posted in the forum much so I might as well introduce myself.  I am a mechanical engineering student at the South Dakota School of Mines and Technology.  I am currently in AZ doing an internship for this semester and summer.  I didn't start cooking until I started college.  I reallized that I wanted to eat good food but I didn't want to go to resturants all the time so I decided to learn how to cook.  I quickly became very passionate about cooking and I really like experimenting and trying new things.  My "go to" tecniques are sauce making, braising and deep frying.

Hey DK, welcome to the forum. What's your favorite thing to braise? What about sauce?

Welcome to the forums.

Being a saucier is a highly specialized job.  But fun!  Do share...

I typically braise cuts of beef. Any tough cut, I'm not too picky.  For sauces I really like making integral sauces.  I am also working on more classical sauces.  Mostly stock based right now, but I am looking to expand on that soon.

I’ve seen various TV shows where a health inspector uses a device to measure the cleanliness of a kitchen surface.

Does anyone know about where these devices can be found?

Is there an updated link to take the quiz for the knife skills podcast?  There was one given in the comments section of the podcast, but it is a broken link

Thanks

Hi I had succes The first time I watch the video on sourdough starter and how to make a boule, it must have been a fluke as now 2 and half weeks of trying and almost 4kgs of flour later I cannot get my starter to float, I told 2 of my friends about the videos and they have been trying for a week and they havent been able to make the starter float either, 2 of us are using filtered water and 1 is using rain water so I doubt if its the water, we are in winter in Melbourne Australia so the temp inside the house is min 8c max 19c weve all been following the instructions closely, Ive even tried

For a while, I've wanted to experiment with a "Peanut Butter and Jelly Bread." Given how well the Brioche Hamburger Buns have turned out, with all their buttery goodness, I'm considering using Jacob's Brioche loaf recipe as a starting point. 

I have googled around for existing "Peanut Butter and Jelly Bread" recipes, but most of them seem just to swirl the peanut butter and jelly into the dough, producing something that would be difficult to slice, toast and handle.
