  1. It's chocolate - no it's bread. It's the french lean loaf from MBread with ~10% of the flour replaced with cocoa powder. In Japan we found a bakery that had savory chocolate bread, it was REALLY good, I want to figure out how to make it, this was my first attempt.

    Dinner 2018 (Part 1)

    Anniversary dinner for one, my wife is 3 states away.... Pork Chop and Potatoes. It's some fancy bread pork, cuz it's GOOD. I cooked to 140F via sous vide, potatoes were steamed in steam oven and then mixed with some cream. Not pictures, 2012 syrah

    There are hot pepper flakes and cilantro - not exactly Indian. Also Garam masala (which we mix our selves), ajwain seeds (coarsely ground), and a serrano pepper. Not quite the long list I use for curry.

    Nice and straightforward - cauliflower was cut up, and battered, and fried for a few mins around 330-350F, If you use bigger pieces (the recipe actually calls for 2" florets) it has you smash the 1st fried florets with your hand and fry again. We've made this before and found we prefer to just cut into smaller pieces to start.

    Lunch today, Meatballs with Vodka Sauce over angel hair. You can only see the bottom of the glass of Syrah that I had with this, it's Whitehall Lane's first Syrah (small batch limited to wine club members) - and damn is it good for it's price point.

    Fried Walleye in Cornmeal with smashed potatoes. Very yummy, not something I've made at home much but gotten at restaurants.

    For the Halibut we had yesterday, my wife made a home-made sriracha mayo. Of course that was more then we needed, so what do you do with fresh mayo? Deviled eggs of course: It's only the 2nd time I've ever ate deviled eggs, normally I don't like them (too creamy), anyway this is my wife's doing not my own, it was pretty good.

    It's Halibut season! So Halibut cooked Sousvide, Homemade sriracha mayo, and baked red beats. Desert was Les Misérable cake
  11. Les Misérable with matcha from Patisserie by Curley The sponge cake has 10g of matcha in it: We're still working on presentation skills, it tastes REALLY Good.
  12. 2 on the left were proofed in the steam oven.

    Made Bahn Mi this morning, using turkey, pepperoni, bacon, pickled carrots, tomatoes, and lettuce and 1/4 of a roll I put together this sandwich, was quite tasty. I ate the entire roll in 3 sections.
  14. Tried the Bahn Mi this morning, dough is very hard to mix until the stage where the fat gets added, then it's a really nice dough. I only have space to bake 2 at a time in my steam oven, so I proofed 2 on the counter at 70F and two in the steam oven with humidity at 95F (I can't go lower). Made sadwiches with it for lunch, I'll post that picture over in the lunch thread. Notice how much a difference the two proofing methods made. Guessing ideally it would be not as wide. These are 260g of dough and ~8" long per the recipe.

    Sloppy Joes, I keep working to improve them... Today we had shiitake on hand from doing stir-fry. Turns out they are amazing in a sloppy joe (I discovered adding red pepper a long time ago really helps) I use my own spices, chili powder, cumin, Worcester sauce, ketchup, salt, sugar, with tomato sauce and 80% lean beef so some cornstarch to thicken it (really helps with mouth feel keeping all that fat in there) Of course it's on homemade MC bread hamburger buns! Yummy!
