    Lunch 2019

    We love homemade pizza. This time it's new york pizza crust - from Modernist Bread. I'm really looking forward to Modernist Pizza 1/2 with a lot less cheese for me, and a lot more cheese for my wife. She does Pineapple and Onions (which she claims most people think is weird) I just do pepperoni + onion + red pepper This was really good crust - a bit more work then ATK's which is our easy standby but if I'm willing to put in a bit more effort this is so worth it.

    Tonight, our new favorite way to do chicken breasts. Cut into smaller pieces, dredge in flour (w/ S&P), then egg, then panko, then fry! With some BBQ of course (not pictured, not homemade this time)

    Dinner 2019

    Tonight my wife was at her community band so I was on my own - she said I should get something just for me. This is american Wagyu ribeye. I cooked it sous vide and then in a very hot pan to get a nice crsp crust - might have had it on longer then it needed, but the crust was nice. I steamed some potatoes and smashed them to go along. I can only eat so much steak - I had a bit left over - it's approved by my cat:
  4. HOST'S NOTE: This post and those that follow were split off from the pre-release discussion of Modernist Bread. ***** Figured I don't need to dump all this into the contest thread - so I'll post here. My journey to making my first MC loaf. Her's the poolish after >12 hours: Not pictured - water with yeast in it below the bread flour and poolish That went into the mixer and not long later I had a shaggy mass: That rested for a while - then mixed until medium gluten formation - a window pane that was both opaque and translucent (no picture for that slightly messy part) Folded and rested, folded and rested, I think this is 1/2 the mass now ready to rest one final time. Proofed it in the oven - I have a picture of that but it's just foggy window oven Then it went into the oven, here it is at max temp - 450 with steam turned on. Completed loaf: \ And the crumb - this is awesome bread:

    My wife said to me: "This is what you get when you leave your wife alone in the kitchen all afternoon " (referring to having to run the dishwasher again) She made Tomato Sauce used in: and then Chocolate Macarons with a chocolate and strawberry ganache!

    Lunch! What'd ya have? (2018)

    In the past I've know about split pea soup - usually comes with Ham. ATK has a recipe for "pea soup" - no ham and it's not split Maybe it's as thick as a foggy day in London.... We're moving our freezer so trying to empty what we can - this was an excuse to use up some more chicken stock - so my wife volunteered to make this - and it's good! P.S. the 70s want this color of green back...

    Chili and Cornbread - Made around 10 portions of this chili yesterday from ATK cookbook. Yummy! Beef, Red Pepper, Onion, Garlic, and lots of spices.

    Pizza time, this time with Sausage (and Onions)!
  10. Any one else own Thermador products and had an issue? We're "lucky" I had an extended warranty in place so I'm not financially involved, just time involved. Our Stem oven stopped working with steam which kinda defeats the entire point of this oven. Basically it doesn't recognize the presences of water in the tank, except for when it's off - it now complains about there being water when there very much is not. Luckily our local service people have a clue but they've been jerked around to by Thermador, it's very frustrating as each ship a new part / schedule a tech takes 10 days or so (Thermador seem to be the ones driving this at the direction of the warranty service). It took almost 3 months to figure out the fix for the cracked top was in fact a bad replacement top. They replaced everything inside the cook top and our service folks even had the unit in their shop (which they managed to reverse the left and right wiring) and didn't solve it until they came back out with a replacement top (and parts to replace everything inside) On the bright side our Cook top is all new except for the shell... The Steam oven is still broken. The replacement main board should show up this week, tbd when we can get the tech out to replace it.

    Risotto - this time it's pork stock and celery + the normal things. (Rice, Corn, Onions, Cheese, Butter) Verdict: Celery is now required - the crunch is nice.

    It's starting to cool off outside, so running our oven at 550F is an option again... so it's PIZZA TIME! I like pepperoni on my side, but little cheese, my wife no pepperoni but more cheese

    It's my wife's birthday today so I said I'd cook her what she wanted for lunch. She wanted something vegetarian and choose omelets with shiitake marmalade in them from MC. Served along with Country Style Bread from MB: Texture of the awesome savory marmalade:

    Dinner 2018

    Saturday night dinner with friends. Cassoulet Toulousain (Autumn) from MC, without the duck It's Lamb Shoulder cooked for 48h in stock and duck fat w/ spices, a garlic sausage I made myself, beans pressure cooked in stock, and a ham broth. I wanted to make Duck Leg Confit, but there were no local sources for Duck Legs as one supplier in my state had their duck barn burn down. I didn't want to pay $80 to get duck legs and tongues shipped from Pennsylvania. It was still quite yummy! For desert it was Pavlova my wife made: Raspberries from our garden, White Nectarines, and Golden Figs, in a cream sauce with a meringue base. It was divine. Alone with this I opened the first bottle of my case of 2012 Whitehall Lanes Cabernet Sauvignon wine, and it was fantastic!

    Stir fry with green beans and carrot from our garden, and a red pepper over rice. The sauce is a hot orange, heat comes from a fatali we grew as well.

    Tonight was mostly boring, 12 yr old aged cheddar for me, some younger cheest for my wife - with crackers, olives, and nuts. But our Bulgarian Carrot pepper plant finally produced 2 ripe peppers!!!! So salsa was made, and it's hot and very yummy! So tonight is just some salsa food porn

    MC Meatloaf and Fried Pickles (the sandwich that I just do as a loaf alone) I battered it with the same thing the pickles are in and used the same oil. Tasty!

    Fried Catfish and Succotash, something of a staple now and then for us. We got new plates recently - so here it is on new stoneware:
  21. It appears to be fixed, the control board was replaced and now it doesn't claim it's empty.
  22. Welcome to EGullet, interesting 1st post. Seems very suspect - convection ovens are not new, it's just a fan that circulates the air more then it does without a fan (just natural heat flows)

    Finally made the Caramelized Carrot Soup from MC Used stem on carrots from our better local grocery store, I ate a few bits while cutting it up, and they were really top end carrots so the soup was amazing. Floating is tarragon, we also put in ginger and ajwain seeds, yummy!

    Tonight, Beer battered cod and really good hybrid corn. (some sweet x white corn I guess)
  25. We're on city water (not Minneapolis, out in the burbs) - it goes down the drain. We get the Hot Water flushed 2x a year. Though it'll be 3x this year - I flushed to replace the anode rod.
