Um, so, okay. Like. Okay.

I'm a vegetarian. I haven't eaten meat in roughly 10 years. I have never cooked meat.

It is kind of crucial that I learn to cook meat in a very short amount of time. DO NOT ASK.

So. I would love it if you would share with me your meat cooking expertise. Especially in the areas of CHICKEN and STEAK.

Seriously, I am studying meat cooking like I would for a massive exam. There are Sticky Notes and extensive colour coded note taking involved. I now know that a "7 bone steak" is called that because it looks like the number, not because it has that many bones, usually comes in rectangles, comes from the shoulder area, is also referred to as Chuck, and is good for stew because it is tough. OTHER tough parts are the Round, Plate, Flank and Shank.

I want to know basics, like cooking steak in the oven. Broil? How is this best done? Chicken - if you're cooking this to put in something else, where would you do this? The frying pan? I DO NOT KNOW. Why would I need to know?

Again, don't ask. Someday, no doubt, I will share this massively awkward Fenella story. It will be funny. That day is not now.

PLEASE.
