Danielius, what are three main things to keep in mind when you try to cook the best burger?
Asked by Ronaldas Buo啪is
Practice, practice, practice. Practice aside I'd recommend to focus on three things: 1) Meat composition Try grinding your own meat using different cuts of beef: shortrib, ribeye, chuck, brisket, etc. Cook the patties alone, taste the individually and try to find your sweet spot. Try different meats - mix ground and chopped salmon, turkey, pork (pork is the most underrated meat IMO), you get the idea. But the key point here is to taste the patties on their own to get the idea of their individual taste. 2) Meat cooking Buy an immersion circulator and it will save you tons of time. However, if, for some unimaginable reason, you want to skip this step... Try cooking the patties without oil, with a splash of oil. Heck, try deep frying them. When I don't have my circulator, I cook the burgers on high, flipping every 15-20sec (this makes them cook more evenly). Again, cook the patties on their own to get the idea how they turn out. The point of this is to get the idea how your stove and cooking method relates to the final texture of the meat. 3) Cheese Try all the cheeses. Processed ones, hard ones, goat, sheep, mild, sharp, blue, green. Try making your own blend of cheeses (my personal favourite is provolone + gruyere, but it will be a different one for you, I promise). Also, if you really want to up your cheese game, learn to make your own processed cheese. No thank you needed. When you have mastered all three of them (or get bored with experiments): Try differen buns - potato rolls, pretzel buns, brioche (overrated), make your own buns! Different sauces (for example: wasabi kewpie mayo for salmon burgers) And only then I'd suggest you start adding condiments to your burger (be careful not to overstack your burger). Try wakame sallad (and all the others), chutneys, guac, caramelised onions, black garlic, literally anything you can think of - try it. 馃崝鉂わ笍馃敟

, it adds flavour, but requires more space in the fridge to do it. Personally tried it once and failed. Usually I ask a butcher shop to keep one cut longer (60days) and pay a bit for that

Andrius Baranauskas on Tech in Southeast AsiaProduct Executive Bringing Best Experiences GloballySome time ago
Earlier this week I had a chance to do my first podcast appearance鈥 Great experience! As part of the prep for it, I asked myself 鈥 what were the key differences I observed as a Product Leader in Singapore/SEA compared to Europe? (1) Drive to create and hunger to achieve is enormous in the region. I鈥檝e only seen anything similar in the US so far. Europe is鈥 complacent in many ways. Why create something new if what we have is good enough? (2) Product Management is perceived very differently. Most of the product managers I interviewed early were really project managers 鈥 often getting things done that were thought through somewhere else by someone else. Product managers often have a business counterpart 鈥 in Europe, it is PM鈥檚 job in most cases. Situation changed and evolved over time though! (3) Excellence in craft is really high, especially among the technical people. Data Scientists, Engineers and others are often really really good in SEA. I鈥檇 dare to say significantly better. The flip side of that is they often lack interest in the customer and the business. Which makes the teamwork hard, especially if you try the Spotify model. (4) Importance of loyalty cannot be underestimated. At work, this often trumps ideas and work done. People you hire are often afraid to say something that falls out of line, even if they know better than you. Same applies to some of the VCs too in their relationships with the founders. (5) Differences between markets in SEA and Asia in general are much bigger than in Europe or West in general. However, the very average basic customer behaviour is strangely similar, be it in Europe or SEA. (6) Tech workforce is significantly more diverse in the aspects of nationality and gender. First 8 members of my product team at Carousell were all from 8 different countries! Yet somehow different nationalities form their own bubbles, which makes having a singular strong culture in the company much harder. (7) People strive for structure: career ladders, processes, tooling standardisation. A need for this manifests much earlier in the startup鈥檚 journey. In Europe, freedom is sought after a lot more. Exception here that I observed is Taiwan 鈥 levels of creativity there surprised me! Want to learn more about this dynamic region? Schedule a Zoom call with me!

My today visualization is about Temporary employees as percentage of the total number of employees, by sex, age and citizenship (%) in EU. It was interesting to observe that countries in Northern, Central and Eastern Europe has lowest percentage of the total number of employees, by sex, age and citizenship (%) in EU as we can see in this visualization. Temporary work or temporary employment (also called odd jobs or gigs) refers to an employment situation where the working arrangement is limited to a certain period of time based on the needs of the employing organization. In Europe 13.6 percent of people work as temporary employees. #Spain (26.3%) and #Montenegro(33.6%) has the highest percentage of people working as temporary employees. Let's Work Smarter, Not Harder! The "Quality of employment" #framework developed under the lead of UNECE (United Nations Economic Commission for Europe) represents a neutral and comprehensive approach to assess quality of #employment in its multiple facets.
