Cooking With Steve Albini

"How did people make soup before stick blenders? They are the absolute stone cold nuts. You can fuck up a soup real bad and a stick blender will totally make it presentable. Having a stick blender is like a cheat code for Call Of Duty: Soup."
Is this really a cooking blog by legendary musical curmudgeon Steve Albini? Sure, why the hell not.

OK. But how do you open the can with a stickblender?

Was thinking of buying Ms.Y an immersion-blender for an anniversary present, so I went into a local kitchen shop looking for some options. They only had one. A Viking. It was $113.

@Art Yucko That's ridiculous and I'm disappointed in you.

The Kitchen Aid hand blender is soooo wonderful. Art, get your wife that one! It comes with nifty attachments, and has been a worthy successor to the Braun Multipractic my nana gave me (which lasted something like 35 years before refusing to blend anymore).

@City_Dater Your nana has no right to just give me away like a common… utensil. Oh wait.

"I think not using stick blenders is repulsive. The whole idea that someone else can make soup that is supposed to be in style and make other people look good is ridiculous. It sickens me to think that there is an industry that plays to the low self-esteem of the general soup-making public. I would like the Not Using Stick Blenders Industry to collapse. I think it plays to the most superficial, most insecure parts of soup-making nature."

I'm disappointed in the title of the blog. Should be 'Alblini'

He didn't cook the food, you assholes. He was merely the food engineer.

The backbone of this country is the independent cook

Wait, Rapeman wasn't a food blog?

He really just lets the ingredients do their thing.
