  1. I own many Japanese knives. I just purchased one recently on a recommendation from a friend. http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00E0EF99Y/ref=pe_385040_30332200_pe_309540_26725410_item I must say the Zhen is very well balanced with a very reasonable weight. It a great Usaba at a really good price.
  2. 1/8 I am heading to Florida from DFW via the Northern route. I am heading out of DFW around 2ish and will try to push to Jackson for the night. So where should I stop? I will then be heading from Jackson through Hattiesburg to the coast. Thanks

    Celery Root and Broccoli Rabe

    Slice the celery root thin, layer it in a sheet pan with EVOO, salt, pepper a bit of garlic and roast it to almost crunchy. Basically the same way you would do fennel.
  5. First it's a lot easier to purchase the curd. You need really hot water with a boat load of salt. You stretch the cheese into and then the easy way to go is to put it into plastic wrap and spin it. You will end up with a ball that is tightly packed.
  6. Yep I purchased one on ebay a while back. I purchased it to buy some time before replacing the blades on my mandoline. It's been a few months and I still have not felt the need to deal with the mandoline. It's simply so easy to clean up and does such a good job. The mandoline is such a pia to clean up...

    Pork Tenderloin

    Actually I have done all the stuffed loins etc and find a more basic recipe yields superior taste with much less work. Put the loin in a braising pan add sweet root vegetables and apples sections but not diced add sherry level with the top of the loin Mix mustard, honey and 1t allspice and brush it on to the top of the loin cook @ 300 F until done
  8. Did North Main BBQ for lunch in Euless, it's amazing that they are not taking credit cards. The BBQ is always good and all you can eat for $12 your choice of tea or tea...

    Used Bread Making Machine

    What brand is it Richard? The "hard" part is figuring out what buttons to push if it's one of the newer machines. Most of the manufacturer's websites will have the manuals posted. I have been baking Pumpernickel nearly every week for a while now.

    Salad Dressings

    Make your standard ish balsamic vinagrette, add crumbled feta and very thinly sliced red onion, sweeten with maple syrup, quite yummy always a crowd pleaser.
  11. Also great for lunch is Flying Fish in the same shopping center on Montfort & Beltline. Chow Thai on Beltline just east of Montfort in the corner of the next shopping center has reasonably good Thai food. Not the best in Dallas, but there are many great Thai restaurants here. Clay pit Indian on Beltline around Midway has a decent lunch buffet. If you want mass amounts of meat Addison has both Fogo de Chao and Texas De Brazil. Both are good all though not cheap

    Induction Cooktops

    I have an induction burner I use for catering. The only issue I have with induction is the fact that many of your favorite pots and pans will not work. You have to have something that is "magnetic". I would not go out and replace my gas cooktop with induction, but if you cannot have gas it's a good alternative.

    [DFW] Tapas suggestions

    We tried to go to De Tapas at lunch. The door was open but literally nobody inside. It also had the typical smell of a restaurant that was not doing well. So with that said, anybody have a suggestions were to go for good Tapas?
  15. I would add Sushi Yama, very good sushi and the best Japanese food in town by far. http://www.guidelive.com/portal/page?_page...AL&item_id=1582
