  1. As mentioned in the dinner topic, Bugialli's minestra di farro. Equal parts Rancho Gordo Marcella beans and organic farro from Bob's Red Mill. There are quarts and quarts remaining. Bugialli says it reheats, as well as being served at room temperature.

    Dinner 2020

    Bugialli's minestra di farro. Bugialli on Pasta (p381). Glass of V.E.P Chartreuse, for health reasons. Not shown.
  3. When I was on food stamps I did not shop at Whole Foods.
  4. I was hoping for a counter argument.
  5. Cuisinart goes in the dishwasher...does your counter?
  6. I fear the blimp was turned back at the boarder. These are hard times. Like the little red hen I realized I was going to have to do this myself. And I did! With the help of a bottle of Chartreuse. As everyone here surely knows Chartreuse V.E.P. is shipped in a sturdy wooden case. Normally the Chartreuse case keeps my bedroom window closed. But the case is just the height of two stairs. I used it to support the weight of the Vesta box as I edged the Vesta up the stairs. Still no picnic nor piece of cake. Had the case slipped the Vesta would have tumbled down on top of me. And I'd had no more worry of the virus. Pardon the ambient lighting of my living room.
  7. Or do as I do and use the food processor.
  8. I believe that is the piece that Modernist Bread recommends. And, no, I am not getting up to check.
  9. I usually use a non-stick electric griddle. Once I decided to try my big Falk frying pan. Incinerated the tortillas.
  10. Using a machine, making pasta is not hard. Making pasta is not hard even without a machine. I highly recommend the seriouseats recipe: https://www.seriouseats.com/recipes/2015/01/fresh-egg-pasta.html I use Molino 00 organic but a soft all purpose flour should be fine. No need for semolina; however I just got an order of Molino semolina (as well as more 00) from supermarketitaly. They may still have stock. The instructions that came with your machine are probably sufficient. Do be sure the dough is not too moist. It should just come together. The great question is whether you do three folds or two.
  11. Kerry's blimp should be here soon.
  12. My Vesta is sitting at the bottom of my stairs. I have no way to lift it.
