  1. Have you ,or anyone else, been to Taqueria Lupita's or Evie's Tamales? These are two of my personal favorites.
  2. I got a copy of Land of Fish and Rice by Fuchsia Dunlop
  3. I am sooo glad we have such a long oceanic coastline! Imagine what we would be eating if the USA was a land-locked nation!!!
  4. I've just started Gourmet Rhapsody by Muriel Barbery.

    liuzhou- What are pignuts?
  7. Question-I know cabbage can be pickled, but can spinach be pickled? I want to do spinach in a basic vinegar/salt brine, Can leafy greens be done?
  8. @liuzhou- Thanks again for all your input. I may not be tremendously smart, but I am a quick learner.
  9. liuzhou-(I do not know how to highlight your name, sorry) Thank you for setting me straight on this. I was looking forward to your input.
  10. Seriously- My editor claims there is such a thing, and wants a story about it. Naturally, knowing of eG, I volunteered to do the story (if, that is, no one jumped on it before I did). I also figured that this might be an interesting thing for the rest of us to follow, too. So, can anyone give me info? photos? You can PM me if that is easier, since I would like to use photos in the article, if and when I get the assignment. --Thanks!
  11. Thank you! I preserved a batch of lemons in salt too. But I was-until now- unclear as to how to use them. BTW I also preserve ginger in vinegar. They are wonderful.
  12. eG Cook-Off #72: Ramen

    I was eager to try something, so I made macaroni and cheese using ramen noodles instead of elbow macaroni. No pictures

    Thanks- I don't always read or pay attention the way I should

    The best place for dim sum is CAI in Chicago's ChinaTown. They have some interesting bakeries there too. And, IMO the absolutely best Chinese teashop between my area and the Mississippi is Dreaming of Tea in Evanston.
