  1. This is terrible news. I always looked forward to his detailed posts. He was very generous with his knowledge sharing ways. Life is short. Enjoy everyday and be kind.
  2. We just moved into a condo. Natural gas bbqs permitted. The hookup to the natural gas has a timer on it. You can have the gas on for 3 hours at a time. Then you have to reset the time. A nice safety feature. I like it. A similar device for the gas stove would be comforting.

    That sounds perfect. I love sticky rice steamed. A whole new texture. Thanks for the info

    @KennethT that’s a brilliant idea to put the rice on a tamis . I was using the solid tray covered in parchment paper that was lightly oiled. How is clean up? Does the rice really stick to the tamis?

    On the topic of dinner meat, I remember back in the day in Edmonton Italian town, there was an old school Italian butcher. I wanted 4 - 2 inch fillet steaks. None in his case. He went into his cold room and slide a half carcass on a rail through the cold barrier to his cutting table. He lifted the carcass onto his cutting tale. Processed to cut and pull to expose the fillet. Looked up and asked me how thick I wanted them. He cut them out of the animal and wrapped them up. Slid the carcass back in the cold room. I thought that was one of the coolest things I had experienced. He served them to me with smile…he was probably 70 years plus old.

    I see they are two years old situated about a 45 min drive one way away from us (we just moved closer to them a month ago…need to update my profile) Sounds like they get whole animals in. I have been sick for awhile and was not really cooking a lot so did not know of them. Thank you for bringing them to my attention. We will take a drive down there to see them…several great wineries to visit on the way too boot! Cheers

    @scamhiTHANK YOU for posting the video. Makes me wish I was a butcher. I also wish we had a real butcher in town. The government’s stupid new regulations put many butchers out of business about ten years ago. We don’t even have an abattoir close. Animals have to be shipped a 2 1/2 to 3 hour drive to the nearest one.

    I subscribe to the poke and turn method too. grilled big shrimp like that last night. Marinated in lime, garlic, salt and ginger for 30 min then grilled poking often to 120 degrees F. Perfect…so plump and juicy but cooked. Gotta do that again soon.

    Looks brined beforehand.
  11. Great trip. Thanks for sharing your experiences.
  12. Thank you for sharing your island get away. Leaving at the right time with the big earthquake hitting so close!

    I hate trying to eat a sandwich that falls apart leaving you to pickup the pieces to recreate the intended flavour bite. Nothing worse than taking a bite which causes the contents to spill out the other end. Wrong bread texture. Making a good sandwich is not easy.😊
  15. Thank you for taking the time to do this. Always a hoot.
  16. Yes, moose swim very well. They regularly swim across Lake Okanagan in BC, Canada. We almost ran one over with our boat a few years back.

    Yes, Okanagan wine is world class now. Lots of awards being received. Loads of international winemakers at work in the wineries. If you have it available to you, please try.
  18. Thanks for the pictures. I am eyeing those fabulous looking leeks.
  19. Modernist Cuisine might enlighten us. I am moving and have packed mine🤪or All About Braising by Molly somebody or other.
  20. Well, it is hard work looking after a veggie patch, picking, cleaning, bundling and tending the sales table. Seeds are not cheap either and then here is growing seedlings prior to planting.
  21. @TdeV could you tell me more about your zucchini. What was the marinade.

    @Smithynow you mention it, looks like a pie. At first I thought it was a pork chop.
  23. Great looking pizzas everyone. We are moving and a 10 minute walk away is a wood fired pizza place with excellent reviews. I am afraid with limited storage space and condo restrictions on what kind of cooking device one is allowed on the balconies we will be walking.🤪
  24. I have an Excalibur drier which I find fantastic. Recently I wanted to convert my frozen roasted garlic and regular garlic into dried powder. It took a number of hours..lost track how many…at least 24. Just sliced the garlic. the powder is amazing. Just like when I dried sliced onions and made a powder. yes the house smelt delicious.🤯
