    Where to find "pimento pepper" in Philadelphia, PA? been looking for them for sometime now don't want to travel all the way to Brooklyn, NYC for them.

  17. Love your videos. Can you make more vegetarian dishes or vegan dishes

  18. I do not understand this gluten free diet. People have been eating starch for centuries, soon our diet will be synthetic food. A plastic salad anyone or fry cardboard?

  19. Awesome…love the uniqueness of this…especially since we have eaten indian pulao all our lives

    Hi Chris and everyone. Love your channel and your recipes but i do want to mention that if anyone is a true vegetarian you should avoid Lea and Perrins as all the prepared Worcestershire sauces do contain anchovies. There are some vegan ones like Annie's, but if you can't find that you can mix up something yourself like i do… it's mostly tamarind and vinegar 😉
