  1. I Bought a Tutove--Now What?

    Now I know why I am unlikely ever to make puff pastry.
  2. Aji amarillo is yellow, is it not? By chance I made Peruvian chicken tonight for dinner but I am no expert. Have you tried Kenji's version?
  3. Feedback on new 'low entry barrier' bread kit

    Thank you, interesting. Seam side up they said though.
  4. Feedback on new 'low entry barrier' bread kit

    Page reference, please.
  5. Japanese curry

    Much of the time savings come from not roasting bones for the bone broth and from not having to source koji from Japan.
  6. Was the in-flight movie Airplane?
  7. Russet Potato Flavor

    For russets I typically buy individual big potatoes from the bin. Last fall I tried a bag of russets from amazon. As I recall I was well pleased. These were as you say, clean but rough. But amazon discontinued Fresh delivery to my area. Oh well. Though seriously I would be concerned about potatoes lightly brushed and rinsed unless they were organic. Maybe that's just me. I either peel mine or scrub them within an inch of their life.
  8. For a softer bread I think the Cuisinart electric knife would work pretty well.
  9. One Click Butter Cutter

    All too familiar here but mine has not progressed as far. I can't place my hands together but thankfully I can still cut butter with a knife. Worse was frozen shoulder, believed by some to be the same disease, which made it difficult to cook or eat...details, I know. Sorry if too much information.
  10. Here is a video I found: https://www.google.com/search?num=100&as_q=slicing+salmon&gws_rd=ssl#gws_rd=ssl&kpvalbx=1&spf=1516253956225 Note there is a story to my salmon slicer: two friends were getting married. I wished to surprise them with smoked salmon at the reception. So of course I needed a salmon slicer. I did not find it at a thrift store. ...Turns out the salmon was pre-sliced.
  11. Dinner 2018 (Part 1)

    Well, I'm not born and raised though I have lived here ever so short of fifty years. (And before that in Philadelphia, spending three months a year at the shore.) I may have memories of good local tomatoes but I sure haven't tasted one in decades.
  12. Japanese curry

    I've made the curry a couple of times and I like it. It is however a lot of work. I wouldn't mine considering other curry recipes but I can't say I've found any others that are not based on a mix.
  13. I bought a Cuisinart electric knife with a bread blade, as shown in Modernist Bread. It doesn't cut though bread. Nor do my chef knives. No problem for a heavy serrated bread knife. Your mileage may vary.
  14. Granted, and I have a similar 12.5 inch (blade length) Wusthof. I don't think these knives were meant to be used for slicing against cutting boards. Mine, as I recall, was sold as a salmon slicer.
  15. Yes, I have King Arthur's. Good stuff. Back to bread, I had a fail. My French lean dough boule came out as if it were a rye bread, dense and chewy. Not horrible but not French lean bread either. I know it was not the dough because I baked a perfectly lovely baguette from the same batch. All I can think of is that the boule was over proofed, but I am not sure.
