    Dinner 2019

    Happy Easter and Passover! Instead of ham (too salty) I made SV rib steak . Instead of matzo balls, I made matzo star of David. With asparagus and radish from my garden. On grilled pineapple slices. dcarch

    Dinner 2019

    I turned the leftover lamb into a Sichuan style Cumin Lamb. It is completely improvisational, and I through in some veggies cause I felt the need. But it worked out well.

    Cooking plain old chips

    That's true as far as it goes, but there's always that pesky gap between theory and reality. I found myself constantly having to make adjustments based on the potatoes I was getting from my supplier. Hypothetically they should have been the same year-round (same supplier, same brand, same cultivar, etc) but that's never the case. Sometimes they were perfect. Sometimes they'd clearly not been out of the farm co-op's cold storage for as long as they should have been, and were still in their sugary "anti-freeze" state (and therefore a quick-browning PITA to deal with). At some point in the year there's the switch from old-crop to new-crop potatoes to dread, as well...that requires similar adjustment. I eventually mastered the necessary tweaks (longer soak, lower the blanching temp) but it was an ongoing battle, and I threw out a lot of fries in the process. The worst part? I also had to keep frozen fries on hand because a solid half of my clientele preferred those. 🙄

    Wine leftovers

    Wine Digestif / Apéritif 1 cup of water 3-6 tablespoons of honey 1 cinnamon stick 7-10 pepper granules (red and black) 3-4 leafs of Pelargonium graveolens ~ 1 liter of wine. Boil the water for 5 minutes with cinnamon stick and pepper granules. Add the leafs of Pelargonium and furthered away the cooking pot from heat source. Wait until the water is cool enough to add the honey (max 60°C). Stir it well to make a sirup. Mix the sirup with the wine.

    Trader Joe's Products (2017–)

    Maybe fish tacos? I’m not familiar with the mango sauce.

    The Bread Topic (2016-)

    Curiouser and curiouser. Tonight I cut into the boule. It looked like something @Ann_T might have posted, with the open and pearlescent crumb. I'm thinking my pale crust was due to lack of sugar after the long fermentation necessary to build strength. I still have no idea why this batch of dough failed to mix, and I can't even blame it on rum.

    Yet another batch of Blasphemy Ribs. Served with steamed spinach in butter.
  14. This isn't really disposal related... but I just wanted to encourage people to get frying.

    Ingredients via Internet

    I started this thread about sourcing Vacche Rosse from parmashop.it. Oddly tonight amazon was recommending Vacche Rosse for me. Turns out Parmashop now has an amazon storefront for the convenience of those interested in such delicacies.
  16. Though I will put in a plug for Eat Your Books. Not all recipes have made it to the internet.

    Crazy Good e-Book Bargains

    I clicked on the Phillips book. Though I have never had Dim Sum. The one time when my family and I went for Dim Sum we all ordered other stuff.
  18. An acquaintance, yes, She contacted me when she was researching her book on regional Chinese cuisine, "All Under Heaven" with a few questions about food specific to my part of China. Later, she was kind enough to include me (under my real name) in her list of acknowledgements, alongside the good and great! Company I seldom keep! She is an eGullet member @C J Phillips , but hasn't posted for a long time.

    Thanks for the info - I think I'm going to get one of those - FYI the link in your signature does not go to your website - I had to manually input it - what a drag - to find your real website and your selection looks delicious.
  20. I believe the author is a friend or an acquaintance of @liuzhou. I seem to recall him recommending this book when it was first released. I am certain he will correct me if I am wrong.
  21. I am happy to wait. Thank you.

    Meeting-friendly snacks to bake

    I have my grandmother's recipe. If I can find it without unpacking the boxes I've already packed for the move, I'll post it. Otherwise, it may be a week or so before I can get to it. May not be any different or any better than what you're using but you'll be able to tell how it compares to the recipe you used. I don't remember having trouble with them staying together but it's been a while since I made them.

    Food Safety Question

    OK. I'm cowardly. Since I didn't cook it tonight....I'm tossing it.
  25. Those look gorgeous to me. Have you ever tried Argan oil as a dresseing/finishing oil? It has a distinctive flavor that complements so many foods. I add it to pilaf, plain rice, couscous, mushrooms, roasted eggplant/tomatoes/fingerling potatoes.

    Dinner 2019

    @Owtahear lovely cook on the leg. It was quite thick so to get it mostly pink was great. You must have cooked it indirectly for part of the time. Well done...you, not the meat 😁 I butterflied mine and cut the really thick part off to cook on another day seeing we had plenty of meat. My meat was about 1.5 inches thick so I cooked it over full gas and kept flipping it until the temp was 120ish then rested it for ten minutes tented under foil.
