Octopuscarwash's Gourmet Adventures

I live to eat. Yes, I am an Asian Jew. My favorite meal is breakfast (oatmeal in particular). I'm only in high school, so I am a complete amateur. Some of my favorite cuisines are Middle Eastern, Moroccan, Japanese and Korean. I eat so much Chinese food that it's hard to say whether I like it or not... all I know is that I don't like what most of America seems to think of as Chinese food, Panda Express. I'm a pescetarian and love coming up with my own healthy fusion food.

This is my peanut butter stash as of now:

Mom eggs vs. Dad eggs (over easy with butter vs. fried Chinese-style with peanut oil)January 017
Actually, for my next art project, which is a double portrait that shows the relationship between two people, I'm going to be partially influenced by our friend Laura Letinsky,
who photographs leftover food. I want to do a portrait of them that doesn't have any people in it: more like a still life of the kitchen that shows their different styles of cooking (what they cooked and what kind of mess they made) on either side of the stove. Sort of hard to describe right now.

Open-faced sandwiches: "Lobster salad" with leftover lobster tail from New Year's, yogurt, cayenne, celery, lemon juice and lox and Laughing cow, roasted squash, celery and hummus.

  
Not mine but it's too cute: my mom's popcorn in the "Popcorn" bowl I bought her (She's an addict!

Also, to enforce my point-- My lunch vs. hers (Veggie sandwich with goat cheese, pesto, spinach, roasted red peppers vs. bacon blue cheese burger and fries and a Grenadine float (pomegranate soda and rainbow sherbet--  so deliciously sugary!):

The secret of the perfect western style fried eggs I make is that there are not over easy--too easy to break. Rather I cover the pan with lid so the tops cook and there is no goopy film.
