    Kohlrabi is pretty standard these days in American grocery stores. You might have just overlooked it. But it's by no means required. You might even use a turnip, if you want.

    Unfortunately all the pictures have disappeared, but the ingredients and steps are still readable. I have added one thing to my recipe since then, though: Majoran (German Oregano). It's one of the most important spices in German cooking.
    Have you tried mixing malzbier and condensed milk like they do in Africa and the Caribbean? It's so friggin good.

    I don't touch Malzbier. Just how I also don't touch Chinese people.

    What's wrong with malzbier? You can use strong stout instead. Google "Guinness punch".

    I don't drink stout. I only drink German pilsners. In fact, when I'm in Germany I only drink one beer: Wernesgrüner.

    None of you have lived until you eat rice with fingers. Book a trip to Indonesia or South India and try it!

    fingers are just fingers, once cooked they all look the same and they taste of chicken

    at this regard, did you guys notice that when one tastes something new and they don't know what taste it is, they always say that tastes like chicken?

    Every true American knows okra needs to be fried. Fry it, you heretic!

    I didn't even know you could eat okra unfried. Preposterous.

    Finally someone who can appreciate that! I have been waiting for years for the authors and game designers in the fantasy genre (would mention the movie industry if movies weren't so passe by now) to acknowledge our language and tap into its resources.

    Most things in Finnish sound either diabolical like "Mustamakkara" or nightmarishly bureaucratic or kafkaesque like "peruspalveluliiketoimintakuntayhtymä", which refers to several townships joining together to provide services such as public health care. Then there are those monsters that contain what would consitute an entire phrase in a sane language, such as "kotouduttuammekaan", which means "not even after we had become accultured". If you have already mastered Klingon and still have years and years to waste in meaningless pursuits, I recommend learning Finnish.

    Ouch, is that really a word? Not just a "hereIstuckasentancetogetherwithoutusingspaces"?

    Just read the title, and I'm disgusted. Not by any food, but by the title.
    Food is a deity. Would you photograph a deity? No! (Well yes, you probably would if you'd have the chance).
    Are photographs of the prophet Muhammad (blessed be his name) allowed? No!
    Are there pictures of Jesus? No! (They're all CGI generated or fake, even that one from Mr. Da Vinci)
    Long story short: Just enjoy your meal before it gets cold.

    A great question, really. To be very precise, that is neither a word nor a sentence, but a compound word. There is a more limited number of those in English as well, such as "a blackbird". It denotes a specific kind of bird as opposed to "a black bird", that could be any kind of bird that just happens to be black. But the nightmarish Finnish expression is literally "basic service business activity municipality union".

    Finnish, along with many other languages, makes extensive and productive use compounding. Productivity means that a proficient Finnish-speaker will compound anything they come across regardless of whether they have seen that compound used before or not. In writing, compounding involves not having spaces in between the individual lexical items. In speech, compounding means that there is only one primary stress syllable in the entire expression. In the case of "peruspalveluliiketoimintakuntayhtymä", only the first syllable "pe" is stressed and the rest just follows quickly without any significant rising pitch.

    The case of "kotouduttuammekaan" is entirely different, however. That expression only has one word, "koti", that means home. Everything else are grammatical endings that mean nothing in isolation. So that is a single word carrying all that meaning.
