Absolutely. How hard it is depends on your background, not so much in cooking, but in eating. If you grew up around food cultures, you are probably in decent shape. Learning good technique is hard, but you can at least get to the level of basic competency. However, learning taste is hard. I was lucky enough to grow up Chinese in a predominantly Italian community. Great food cultures. I pity people who grew up with with mothers who could barely put together a casserole.

Pressure cook pork belly, then sear. Also, cast iron/flap top cooked burgers are far superior to grilled ones.

I grew up exposed to a lot of multicultural cuisines (especially asian), but my parents are probably the worst cooks of all time frown.gif

I'm sure I'll get a lot of eye rolls for this, but the I learned a lot about cooking by watching Good Eats and How to Boil Water. I'm sure you could find then on Torrent or something. I just really liked them from the standpoint that both shows are more about teaching how to cook rather than trying to sell you on how good whatever dish they're preparing will be. They talk about things like knife technique, proper tool selection, and what to look for at each step in the cooking process before moving on to the next step.

Also, I really like Alton Brown's book Gear for Your Kitchen. I found it very good for explaining what features you should look for in your cook wear and what equipment is most essential for starting out.

Had a roast pork sandwich from DiNic's at Reading Terminal Market last week with broccoli rabe, long hots, and sharp provolone. It was the only highlight of an entire week of jury duty.

(dunno price tho)

The first cobbler I talked to said he couldn't do it, so I not so much. The one I went to is pretty expensive, and I think it ran me $60. I only paid about $200 for them in the first place, so I didn't mind laying down a little extra, and now I like them 10x more.

The stitching isn't perfect, but it's white stitching on white leather, so you can only tell if you put your face right up in them.

Speaking of food I had mushroom and truffle oil soup, roasted beets (red and golden) with burrata and arugula, cauliflower with chili and garlic, lamb french dip and cinnamon donuts with a strawberry puree, shit was good.
