    for the longest time, I had been wondering why my rue's have always been absolute failures. I would add in the flour with the correct ratio and see what appeared to be brown sugar, but yellow. I then realised it was because my mom only bought margerine. A whole year later, today the day before my birthday, I had unsalted butter, flour, english cheddar and red wax gouda.. and Babish allowed me to earn a new food skill. For this, I thank you. Your video's actually physically showed how the rue was supposed to look like when first making it.

    Why *un*salted butter? We add salt right after that. It is such a hassle to keep two different kinds of butter on hand for so minor a reason.

    cilantro as a herb has the population 50/50 split lol , on a side note , its very good for you and one of the few things in the standard diet that helps remove heavy metals and toxins from your body and blood , eating cilantro can be beneficial for your health. what im not sure about is how much heavy metals it removals from your blood , or how much we even have at any given time on average, obviously people in metal working trades will have a lot more but what about people who eat a lot of fish , i have heard fish typically contain measurable amounts of heavy metals. so how much should one eat on average and how often??

    When dicing the onion, you should do the horizontal cuts first. As shown in the video, doing the horizontal cuts second is a bit unstable, not a good thing when you are cutting toward your hand.
