Vegetable dish generally refers to the dish cooked by vegetable oil, vegetables, soybean products, gluten, bamboo shoots, fungus, algae, dried or fresh fruits and other plant materials. Vegetable dish occupies a major position in our daily diet and is also an important part of the Chinese cooking culture.

China’s vegetable dish culture has a long history and it has nothing less than the meat dish in terms of no matter the variety, the material selection, the elaborate cooking skill, or the style. China’s vegetable dish culture can be traced back to the Western Han Dynasty. It is said that the then Huainan King Liu An invented tofu which made great contribution to the development of the vegetable dish. Tofu is not only an important raw material of vegetable dish but also full of quality protein. Therefore, the invention of tofu not only enriched the content of vegetable dish but also endowed the vegetable dish with powerful persuasion in regard to nutrition. Besides, the Chinese vegetable dish also has the history of going abroad. It is recorded in the Japanese literature that when Monk Yinyuan went to Japan in the late Ming Dynasty, he also brought the Chinese cooking skills there, including the cooking methods of “pure vegetables”.

It is generally recognized that the Chinese vegetable dish has three major schools and two main styles. The three major schools include the imperial court vegetable dish, the monastery vegetable dish and the civil vegetable dish. The two styles include “complete vegetable style” and “incomplete vegetable style”. The former is mainly represented by the monastery vegetable dish that does not use the “five Hun” including eggs, shallot, garlic and others. The latter is mainly represented by the civil vegetable dish in which the “five Hun” and eggs, or even seafood, animal fats and broth are allowed.

Sometimes, you have to give in. Sometimes, in this culture of organic-this, natural-that, gluten-free, and allergen-observant, sometimes its best to go to the food items that remind us why we love food in the first place. In my world, one of those foods is the good ol’ cheeseburger.

Under-appreciated by some, and over-analyzed by others, the cheeseburger is one of those dishes which many of us take for granted. Which is exactly how it should be. The cheeseburger falls into the rare and all-to-forgotten category of “It takes real effort to screw up”. When all you need to do is grill a hamburger patty, add, cheese, and then place on a toasted bun, those of us who have tried to distinguish the variations of quality (myself included) have missed the point. It’s a cheeseburger after all, not Coq au Vin or Peking Duck.

ColPickering, residing (and posting) over on Reddit, wanted to do something special for her cookie-dough loving husband upon his birthday. These pictures that she provided are the result.

Very few things in the food world surprise me anymore. This did. Because, y’know….sheesh!

However, I loved her comment on consuming it.

Oh cheeseburger, there are times I want you to be perfect. But I have to remind myself that this isn’t necessarily the best approach to eating one. Sometimes it’s best to consume one with fries and a milkshake, and let it be nothing more than that.

Now, with all that being said, sharp-eyed readers from the Seattle area will recognize this burger as being from Burgermaster, a place that is no slouch in the fast-food burger business. Is it a perfect cheeseburger? Nope. But it doesn’t need to be, does it?

he task force released a three-page report earlier this year that recommended against privatization. It wasn?t a study. It was a ?finding? based on a review of 21 studies.
The finding was ?based on strong evidence that privatization results in increased per-capita alcohol consumption,? the report said.
