  1. Hah ... I had no illusions there - delivery time for the other models is around 5 weeks. By that time @Kerry Beal would have aced it ...
  2. Ok. I made up my mind and reserved the necessary funds ... but - somewhat luckily - the Pro model (that you have and now I want too) is sold out in Germany ... Dodged the bullet there 🤗
  3. Wow ... 6 times would probably be a bit too much hassle for me.
  4. At these temperatures and given that the bake takes 90 secs, how long does it take for the bottom of the crust to solidify to be able to turn it and not make a teppanyaki show out of it ..?

    The syrup is excellent (actually, the brand produces a lot of nice varieties). Rum or Bourbon plus the syrup plus something herbal/bitter makes a good basic cocktail. The syrup itself has a bit of tartness - not overly sour, as in substituting lime if you want to go in that direction, but in a pleasant way.

    I fill the (well chilled) wine into that pictured bottle and carbonate it in my Sodastream ...

    The thermometer jumped from yesterday’s 17 oC to 28 oC today with bright sunshine. Therefore we swapped pizza night for an early BBQ ... Pork collar, pork belly wrapped around skewers, turkey ... Bratwurst & Steak ... Pretzl bread with herb butter ... My (first 🤫) plate ... Oh ... and for @kayb - I am a man of my word (kind of, at least): A Somontano rosé, carbonated a la Methode @rotuts, then rounded off with a dash of passion fruit syrup. Very smooth, very easy to drink - my wife got hap
  8. 1) Retsina 2) An Amarone, carbonated via MR and served with a candied cherry
  9. Must. Resist. RESIST. Being part of eGullet must have been the most expensive decision since getting married 😉

    Yes, they are very helpful for beginners - courtesy of our time in Hong Kong. There, you can find teo varieties: a simple flexible „clamp“ to hold two chopsticks, and the more kids-friendly variety with finger rings. My father enjoyed the former one so much when visiting us that he purchased a few and brings them to his visits to Chinese restaurants (and he is very happy to eat with chopsticks this way) ...

    I was not a lot of work, maybe 45 min prep - and mostly steaming, as described. On Saturdays I like to cook a little bit more laborious things, and this definetely wasn‘t. But it was satisfying, nonetheless 🤗

    Today was kind of a belated spring cleaning ... after that I wasn’t feeling like cooking much, so I raided the freezer and came up with a dim sum dinner, that mostly required steaming ... The full spread ... Steamed ribs with sha cha sauce & five spice ... Curried fish balls (a beloved Hong Kong staple) ... Dan dan mian (I used cornichons instead of the Tianjin pickled veggies, and it worked out fine. It was very spicy and laced with Sichuan pepper. I really missed that combo) ...
  13. I am very sorry for your loss, @liuzhou, and happy at the same time you had the chance to visit her !

    Chicken gyros, zaziki and a Greek salat. I apologize in advance, as you will see this very frequently in the upcoming weeks - it is my „go to“ diet food ...
