  1. Dinner 2017 (Part 6)

    Sorry, but I can't fully get the issue (maybe cultural and /or language): your MILs turkey was cooked and then left to cool for 5 hours ? And usually to do that you have to remove the stuffing (bread ?) ? Why does that mean it is unsafe to eat ?
  2. Aldi

    This is no different to most locations I know in Germany, Belgium and France. Aldi's strategy is not to compete with supermarkets on a full level. They pick their products in a very clever way while at the same time piggy back on the infrastructure provided by the larger supermarkets/shopping centres that attracts customers to travel far in the first place. And given the success the had so far, there must be something to it ...
  3. Camel Milk

    I have no first hand experience, but the first thing that popped in my head was a salty panna cotta with "maghreb"-type flavourings (woody/resin) and dried fruits on top. Bit of a tangine flavor profile, but milky ... I do like your camel caramel idea

    Well, then you are in for a treat https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Laksa
  5. So true. But also helps with handling the dough ...
  6. Normally, I stretch by hand into a disc, followed by some gentle stretches with a rolling pin to thin out evenly while preventing too much deflation. Works pretty well ...

    Nice, @Ann_T! If I may: what is a "Greek potato" topping made of ?
  8. A sandwich to go

    Thanks for the encouragement - it takes a lot of dedication sometimes. But I have been assured that even if I fail to reach a biblical age using this methodology, I certainly look like it already ...
  9. A sandwich to go

    That is why for the last 20+ years I have made significant progress in systematically lowering the water content of my beverages. After an ill-fated attempt with smoothies I have discovered a class of drinks that contain only 60% of water, even less if taken as shots without ice cubes added. The effects are mostly positive - I feel much more alive while consuming these beverages ...
  10. A sandwich to go

    I think @Kasia refers to the "on the go", as the opposite of sitting down and taking your meal in a relaxed atmosphere. At least I can relate to that, as I find rushed meals somewhat stressful... (and of course sandwiches per se are unhealthy, too. In human history, everyone who has ever eaten at least one sandwich has either died or will do so in a general 1-100 year timeframe)
  11. Dinner 2017 (Part 6)

    Tonight Flammkuchen (kind of) ... 35% rye, rest strong wheat. Poolish, 75% hydration. Topped with sour cream, egg yolk and Tetris de Moines mixture as well as various combinations. Bacon & mushrooms was good, as was chicken, tomato and pesto. Irvins Fried fish skins with salted egg yolk as starters and "Blutsbrüder" (cuvée, Rheinhessen) as the moistening agent ... Made my parents happy, my son happy and me drunk - triple win

    That's where Knoedel come in handy ...
  13. Being the father of a four-year old I can assure you they still do. Sure, they now report back to the First Order rather than a German military organization, but rest assure they still would be delighted by your pizza. As would I (and being German is only part of it ) ...

    Well noted and of course I am aware where you live ... Though shipping white powders from Hong Kong is not that unusual, I see the potential issues. You still have about four weeks to think it through
  15. Dinner 2017 (Part 6)

    Actually ... I'll be on business trip to the States next month for the first time in years. I have that mix on my shopping list. PM me your address and I'll send you one pack
