  1. Hi

    I didn't do a search on this topic because I couldn't be arsed. Anyway, I will take your word as gospel cos u guys know stuff.

    I just wanna know what is the best carrot to buy? I was hoping to spend about $25.99 but want something really hot. Maybe not orange though. ;)

    The Ag department of my alma mater genetically engineered maroon carrots so I'd say go with those.

    Originally carrots were purple. It was through breeding and cross-pollination that we got orange carrots.
  8. Cos I see all these guys, and they have 5 carrots in their bunch. Or 6 or 10 carrots in their bunch.

    I think that you only need four carrots to have a nice bunch. Anymore and you're just displaying bunch envy. i can make the same dinner with four carrots in my bunch that those guys can make with 10 carrots.

    your advice (not that i'll take it)??????

    Sorry the line was so long. :p

    As for the carrot, it can be any way you want, as long as it's orange.

    Bugs Bunny only needed four carrots.
  13. So, if I buy the exact same carrots as Jamie Oliver, and cook them with the same tools he uses, will I get the same taste that his have???

    If not, can u tell me if alembic make a carrot grater so i can cook like stanley clarke does?? would i be able to afford it? his carrots are great.
  14. Of course, there's still a debate over nickel and steel carrot graters...

    Pssh. I prefer my D'addario Chrome flat-grater. You get a fuller taste in the end.
