Idea for an app
You feed it a recipe, and it'll tell you where in the typical supermarket you'll find the ingredients
So if the recipe says for instance, puy lentils, and you go "what the fuck are those", it'll say "they're normally near the rice and shit"
This idea brought to you by me wandering the Brighouse Sainsbury's for literally 20 minutes yesterday looking for puy lentils
@zigg I'm lucky to live in an area with a big South Asian community so if there is ever some obscure spice or ingredient that the Western supermarkets don't have, I just go in the Pakistani one and ask
If a recipe has some weird European ingredient that you can only get in a posh shop like Booths or Waitrose, I'll just leave it out, substitute it or cook another recipe altogether (looking at you, Balsamic Vinegar of Moderna)
@zigg I once put Henderson's Relish in a recipe instead of the aforementioned Balsamic Vinegar and no one noticed
@ak my brother's pet peeve is that when he worked shop floor he would constantly be asked where the eggs were, and tbh I can never find the eggs in a store that's new to me, are they with baking, tins, cakes, bread?
More queer, more garden.
