3. Agree
4. Thou shalt not cook a steak greater than blood rare.

Except for #8 I agree with you. I'm from the South and in the South we put eggs in our tuna salad AND in our potato salad. And mighty good it is, too!

(I'm glad to know that one should not boil brats. As I've never eaten one, I didn't know how they were prepared. Grilled? Steamed? Pan fried?)

You simmer them in beer until they are almost done, then you finish them on the grill. YUM.


1. I agree. Take the spoon & put some dip on your own plate, then you can do whatever you want with that. To bite off something then put it back in the dip is just...ewwwwww.
2. Agreed. Ketchup is for fries.
3. Agreed. Just milk in mine. Milk has natural sugars. :)
4. Agreed. Medium rare, mmmmm.
5. I do not eat ribs. So do whatever you want to them.
6. Brats = beer bath. Otherwise, I agree.
7. Disagree. I like it airpopped. Also I like to make veggies in the mic.
8. I can take it or leave it.
9. Oh absolutely!!!

Nothing bothers my mom more than the double dip. She raised her kids to never double dip.

As for sugar in the coffee, I never use sugar...I use Splenda or Equal.

Eggs are great in Potato Salad but bad in Tuna Salad.

Good list. I'm with you on all except #7.

Leftover pizza (actually anything leftover) was made for the microwave.

Oatmeal (the real stuff, not that instant crap) is possible at the office with the MW.

And popcorn should be cooked the old fashioned way (with real butter melted in the microwave). Better results and none of those nasty microwave fake-flavor chemicals.

While I won't comment on your more incitant remarks (yikes!!!) I will say that, being a foodie, and having lived for 6 yrs total in Jolly Olde, I can say there is PLENTY of great food over there, so it's your loss to be that closed-minded that you won't try it... and that's fine 'cuz then more of it is left for the rest of us to enjoy!

BTW I do agree with #20, although I only make use of one piece of it.

RE: My 13 Commandments of Food. Do you Agree? 2007/12/24 13:41:53
Here are some different ones...

1) Thou shalt always be thankful for food served graciously, regardless of how it tastes.
2) Thou shalt make sure others are served enough before taking seconds. Thou shalt mentally calculate thy share when serving thyself communally, and take a little less.
3) Thou shalt not be a food snob. Which is not the same as thou being choosy; the difference is thy attitude. It is good for thou to be choosy, it is bad for thou to have an attitude about it.
4) Thou shalt take pleasure in friends and family gathering about food. This pleasure is primal and universal.
5) Thou shalt learn to cook well. Understanding is a virtue, and knowledge is power. Thou shalt use thy new found power wisely and genially for others.
6) Thou shalt understand that baking is part science and part witchcraft. Those who have mastered this art are to be revered, and their products are to be eaten.
7) Thou shalt try to seduce and marry one of the bakery witches. Failing that, thou shalt try to seduce and marry one of their brothers or sisters.
8) Thou shalt keep one's kitchen clean.
9) Thou shalt try new things; a nibble, anyhow. Again, thou shalt use thy head; thou need not try to out-Bourdain Bourdain. But it is OK to try just a nibble of that fish stew. Thou might enjoy it. Or not, but now thou knowest.
10) Thou shalt be allowed to break these commandments within reason, when breaking them does not injure thy friends either physically or emotionally. It is OK for thou to break them in private, as thou sees fit. For example, thou may accept thy neighbor's gift of jellied English eels graciously, and then in private refuse to nibble and also scoff at thy neighbor for eating such a thing... but graciously, thankful for the gift, and in private. As a corollary, thou art allow to lie about how good it was.

8. Thou Shalt not put Eggs in Tuna or Potato Salad. Disagree-grew up on Grandma's Potato Salad and Tuna-Macaroni Salad, both with hard boiled eggs.
9. Thou Shalt not put the Peanut Butter knife in the Jelly Jar. Disagree (see below)
10. Thou Shalt not put Fingers in the Pickle Jar. Disagree (see below)

For # 1, 9, & 10, If it's something I have alone and not communal, I would do it. But if if sharing (at a party, etc...), good manners always prevail.

Mosca, I love your addition to the list. I personally know a few people who could benefit from following that list closely.

doner kebab ??? isn't that Turkish................ or Greek ?


It is roughly the Turkish version of what the Greeks call a gyro. Or, maybe it is vice-versa.

Anyway, here is a chilling discussion of the UK version:

1. Thou Shalt not Double Dip. [only if it is non-family communal dip]
2. Thou Shalt not put Ketchup on a Hot Dog. [Why not?]
3. Thou Shalt not put Sugar in Coffee. [A Cuban coffee without sugar?]
4. Thou Shalt not cook a Steak greater than Medium. [Could not agree more.]
5. Thou Shallt not Boil Ribs. [Yuck! Boiled ribs.]
6. Thou Shalt not Boil Bratwurst or Hot Dogs. [Wisconsin brats boiled in beer with onions is a classic]
7. Thou Shalt not use a Microwave for anything other than Popcorn. [Just reheated my coffee in one]
8. Thou Shalt not put Eggs in Tuna or Potato Salad. [Silly. Southern potatoe salad is standard with HB egg]
9. Thou Shalt not put the Peanut Butter knife in the Jelly Jar.[What, I should use the mayo knife? (g)]
10. Thou Shalt not put Fingers in the Pickle Jar. [Well... if they're MY pickles...]

I don't know which was the origin of what, but since Greece was part of the Turkish empire for centuries, one can see where there would be a lot of back-and-forth.

1. Thou Shalt not Double Dip.

If thy table manners have been instilled in thee, thou wilt not even consider this, unless upon thine own plate, or if thou art gonna eat the entire tub of dip.

2. Thou Shalt not put Ketchup on a Hot Dog.

If catsup is thy condiment of choice, thou art justified.

3. Thou Shalt not put Sugar in Coffee.

If thou hast brewed a good pot of coffee, thou shalt drink it black, so as to savor all its robust flavor.

4. Thou Shalt not cook a Steak greater than Medium.

Thy steak is cooked to a greater degree of doneness at thine own risk. In most cases, it shall be dry, tough, and tasteless if thy breakest this commandment.

5. Thou Shallt not Boil Ribs.

But thou mayest cook ribs in thy crockpot with sauce if a smoker or grill is not available.

6. Thou Shalt not Boil Bratwurst or Hot Dogs.

Thou mayest boil hot dogs for thy children's children if they prefer them that way.

7. Thou Shalt not use a Microwave for anything other than Popcorn.

Thy microwave is a tool with many uses. How else would thee melt thy butter and Frank's Hot Sauce together for thy wings?

8. Thou Shalt not put Eggs in Tuna or Potato Salad.

If thy preference is for the eggs, thou mayest add them.

9. Thou Shalt not put the Peanut Butter knife in the Jelly Jar.

Thou hast a roll of paper towels, so thou mayest use one to wipe the knife.

10. Thou Shalt not put Fingers in the Pickle Jar.


Thy fingers were made before forks, but only when it is thine own personal pickle jar mayest thou use them for this purpose.

1.Thou shalt not double-dip. Double Dipping is crude.Kayak Dipping is however acceptable. To kayak dip,one end of the chip is dipped and then that side is bitten off at aproximately 7/16 of the length and eaten.The chip is then reversed, redipped and the 9/16th balance eaten.
2.I shalt put on the hot dog anything the customer asks for up through and including chocolate sauce just so long as the customrer is willing to cross my palm with sufficient pieces of silver.
3.I shall add sugar to my coffee, Yea and also cream unless I be during the period of my hangover where upon neither sugar nor cream shall be entered as they are abomination.
4.Neither shall thou cook to medium...for did not the Lord, when asked about the cooking of his steak,reply-"Verily I say unto you-knock off his horns, wipe the **** off his ass, and plate him"???
5&6.Thou shalt not boil! Though of the pasta and vegetable groups ye may boil.Meat being holy unto me thou shalt not boil...
7.Thou shalt not condemn microwaves which I have given to you for the defrosting and heating of my firmament and the bounty thereof...Judge not less thee forget the defrosting and are condemned to gnaw an iced roast.
8.Thou shalt not be a carping purist-have I not told you that in my Father's mansion there are many salads.
9.Thou shalt not put thy fingers in the pickle jar,nor shall be the fingering of any food in larger than single servings be thy domain-for they are unclean with the blowing of your nose and the itching of thy crotch.
10.Thou shalt NEVER mention ANY Miracle as a no-no...

Sizz, I have a quibble with this one. Even though our interstate highway system is rife with proliferation of all things chains, there is still some wonderful food to be found right off those exit ramps. For instance, my last Roadfood experience, at Bobcat Bite in Santa Fe, is a heavy stone's throw from I-25. That and many other establishments probably listed on this website would be immediately disqualified.

The 10 Buffalo Wing Commandments:

1- There is only 1 (one) Buffalo Wing.
2- You shall not call any other chicken wing a Buffalo Wing.
3- You shall not make wrongful use of the Buffalo wing, such as dipping it into Ranch Dressing. Nor should you accompany the wings with anything but celery and a cold cheap beer.
4- Do not miss 25-cent wing night. It's usually the same night as Monday Night Football.
5- Honor Both the wing and the drum. Do not simply eat one or the other, especially when sharing with others.
6- Do not over cook/fry the wing. A dry wing, is a dead wing. Don't kill the wing.
7- When you fail to order Buffalo wings, don't pine over your buddy's wings. Order your own!
8- Do not sneak a wing from your buddy when he hits the head. That's just wrong!
9- Do not lie to your buddy when he returns from the head and notices a wing is missing. Fess up and at the least, buy him a beer in return.
10-Stock up on napkins. Don't use your buddy's napkins or his wife's blouse. Don't use Trongs either, especially in Buffalo, unless you're looking to get your a$$ kicked. An easier and just as stupid way to get beat up in Buffalo, is to wear a Miami Dolphins jersey.
