Serious Eats: Talk
Leave it to the professionals
I'm brave enough to try cooking or baking anything at my house. But there are always those couple of things that I know for a fact that I can't get as good as when I eat out. Some of these things include anything with puff pastry, certain types of pizza (I just don't have the ovens for it), BBQ (lack of smoking equipment and time), and chinese food.
I know I'm not the only one that feels that certain things are best when made for you, so which foods is it for you?
On a side note, I would appreciate a recommendation for a good cookbook for chinese cuisine.
