How I Cooked 20 Pounds of Tomatoes

  • My new favorite thing to do: make a bunch of recipes that all feature the same ingredient to try to get better at cooking that ingredient. This time it’s tomatoes. - ANDREW

    I love how Andrew speaks like a poet finding beauty in his surroundings.

    I’d be very interested to see an episode on pumpkins in the fall. It’s an ingredient that is often forgotten about but yet easily available around Halloween. I’ve personally never used it for anything other than pumpkin pie and seeds, but I’d be interested to discover what else you could make with it.

    That "this dish was sitting in my house, not getting made, all this time" bit really hit me... Like, there's a world of possibilities within our grasp, which only needs our effort to be materialized... Maybe I'm looking too much into it, but when Andrew speaks all poet-like about food, these kinds of thoughts begin to form :P

    "Thakkali curry" is a part of my childhood memories from Kerala, India :) My mom makes killer Thakkali curry! Pro tip => Add a dash of sweet tamarind extract and a bit of jaggery/ palm sugar to take the dish up a few notches. Plus, save the curry leaves and don't add them while stewing the tomatoes, but stir them into the spluttered spices/ fried onions later. My mom also adds some ginger/ garlic to the while frying the mixture.

    This proves how much I like Andrew's videos: I despise tomatoes in every form, yet I watched the whole thing!

    I love how on Worth It andrew is like "OMG this has SALT on it, Best thing ever created wowiwowoww" and on this channel he talks like "hm, the flaky outside really compliments the contrast in the juicy filling. The light sweetness paired with this buttery flavor highlights the colors and reminisce of summer. Hot Pockets are truly a genius invention in the dense culinary landscape"

    I always love watching Andrew cook because even if he isn't the "best" cook, he sees food as art and thinks about all the components just like an artist would.

    I tried making Pasta al Pomodoro 2.0 at home today. It was absolutely delicious! So rich and creamy and healthy. I'm from India and my mom has been advised by her doctor to not eat any kind of spice because of a medical condition. It's so nice to find a recipe so flavourful without the need for spice. Thank you Andrew!

    For the Gazpacho, one thing we usually do in Andalusian households is to add a slice of stale bread, soaked in water, so that it thickens it a little bit. This was a very popular post-war thickening agent!

    andrew being star struck over the "tarka" technique in the curry recipe while every brown/desi household does it every day with their pulses and rice dishes. <3

    Hey I just gotta say your videos are seriously high quality. When it comes to cooking channels on UA-cam I find sometimes creators will fall into this trap of being too “clinical” in a sense- they cut out the romance of cooking to make a more punctual video. This has its purpose, of course, but damn you talk about food that makes me really excited to cook. It’s very inspiring and relaxing how you take your time with your videos! Thank you!!

    Thakkali curry is like one of most commonly made lazy day curries here in Kerala. I'm surprised that I saw a local dish being made by Andrew 😄😄

    I'd love to see you do this with carrots. Especially to make that carrot steak. I've been really wanting to try to make it and would love to see another person make it and find out better tips.

    I'm so grateful that Andrew decided to make gazpacho. In Spain in summer we eat it all the time, it's sooo good, one of my favorite meals!

    "This dish was just sitting around my house, not getting made for all this time." I love this series for this very reason! Thank you andrew!

    This takes me back to the beginning of Worth It where Andrew is the preassigned skeptic. To see his appreciation for food grow in the way that it has is nothing short of heart warming. A proper fan of his he shall have in me.
