Those yellow things are baby squash, they always look that cooked and uncooked.

Re: The Void

After I went to bed I started thinking that maybe they are not baby squash and looking closer I think they are some kind parboiled tuber. Possibly one to be eaten al dente like Jersualem Artichokes which accounts for the undercooked look.

None of that excuses the carrot though. I can see 7 now.. "a bright color is required to supply a pleasing balance to this dish." Places carrot on plate. Shoving a small dead bird into a vol au vent case is shoddy cuisine, I thought those things vanished with the 80's.

LOL

I'd almost expected something in matching primary and secondary colours for contrast' sake. And those yellow things: I am pretty sure its raw potatoes, cut in this fancy diamond shape. The writers (or whoever is responsible for these things) thought, that no one has seen raw potatoes for years, since you can buy them boiled. And certainly not such small ones.

If you pay a little attention to what usually can be found in Neelix' kitchen, you realise it is not very exotic. Those light purple eggplants, dark plums, strawberries...
The processed food on the other hand was always very creative IMO: especially the names. Maybe we should scan the show for some ideas for next weekends dinner!

I don't know. When we saw the environment from her perspective in "scientific methods" it looked completely normal (except for that blur from being slightly out of phase).

Could be interesting to present food in different shades of grey...

Re: The Void

You can buy boiled potatoes?

Neelix always had the usual suspects in bowls, meaning rambutan and star fruits to look like alien produce.

I already saw them in supermarkets. Never tried, though.

Re: The Void

I never understood why Neelix's fires were so high on the pans all the time.

He had to cook 3 squares a day for a 150 people.

Microwave ovens cause sterility.

Re: The Void

More fire doesn't equal faster cooking though. And what surprised me was this wasn't wok style cooking where you're moving the food constantly, stuff would be left on it's own over those huge fires.

Re: The Void

What about showmanship?

The better he looks while cooking, the better it tastes?

Maybe the shooting flames were to deter people from peering into the pots!

Re: The Void

Or he was trying to scare the humans from taking over his kitchen by making it all look too overcomplicated, to ensure job security?
