Steak Etiquette

Is it okay to ask for steak sauce at a steakhouse?

Does it insult the chef if you order your steak well done? (Well, that’s why I like my steak at home – I never insult myself. But that’s another story.)

These steak questions and more are answered by celebrity chef Bobby Flay in this enlightening video (click on photo).

Lonely Steaks

We went to a fancy schmancy restaurant. Of course, we ordered steaks.

Here is how they were presented . . .

Is it just me or does that steak look lonely next to that tiny clove of garlic?

Seems like a big plate. In graphic design, I believe they call that an abundance of “white space.”

Who wants white space on their plate?

THIS, folks, is why I prefer my steaks at home.

Oh yeah, and they taste better there, too.

So there.
