    „Dönerteller“: trying to improve my döner recipe and I am getting closer. I wish I had more power on my stove to crisp the slices - a gas one would be so much nicer ...

    Maybe my translation of the cut is off ? It is the lower back of the lamb (“under” the ribs), cut into cross sections through the spine. Edited: Saddle it is ... thanks @BonVivant!
  3. Freshly fried cashews always hit the spot for me ...

    Dinner 2020

    After some very pleasant days, rain has finally arrived and temperatures have dropped to a mere 16 oC. Something hearty was requested, so I made pan-fried rack of lamb and a huge pot of ratatouille. The little one is allergic to Aubergines, so I made him a Döner-style sandwich with grilled chicken and tons of veggies, which he ate without any complaints...

    That made my day, @BonVivant. Thank you for the clever idea ...

Comfort food - much appreciated by the whole family and especially by my father: Cherry Old Fashioned Ossobuco in bianco with mashes sweet potatoes ... Gremolata butter Yesterdays flatbread, toasted, for the bone marrow ... Our village’s beer to complete the dinner ... Good times 🤗

    My parents are visiting over the weekend and I prepared some BBQ ... All ready to go ... Tomato & buffalo mozzarella ... Mixed dips & cheeses ... Freshly made flatbread ... A surprising find - very tasty ! Grilled veggies ... Fennel salsiccia, veal skewer, lamb saddle ... Shrimps ... A childhood memory: Dolomiti

    Funny ... for me it is exactly the other way around: with a nice piece of meat, I don’t miss any mushrooms 😉

    Dinner 2020

    Today was a public holiday in Germany, and this might be the only place where I can report that I spend a good part of the day making what you can get 5 min away from here for a few Euros 🤔 Anyway, I decided to make Döner. I used ground beef, kneaded it with spices, onion, ice water and a bit of cornstarch into a meat dough. Baked it to an internal temperature of 70 oC. Cooled down and sliced thinly, before flash fryind in a screaming hot pan ... Made two flatbreads to go with it ... A classic “Dönerteller” with all fixings and some fresh bread (and a beer). Super tasty - a day well spend 😉

    They do a pretty good job. The basic one is good - but the Solist series, in which they store it in pretty much any used cask they‘ll find, is very good value for money. This bottle I bought two years ago, when visiting the distillery. At 57% for me it requires an ice cube, but then its divine...

    Dinner 2020

    You know pretty much the start of the evening, as I have practiced it last week. Had some friends over, and again Thai-ish it was ... Starter was a Cherry Old Fashioned (only ingredients presented by yours truly ...) Rice & shrimp crackers with coriander-pork dip ... Followed by squid salad ... The infamous pineapple fried rice in the pineapple (still don‘t know what to do else with it) ... Chicken satay (not skewered, but with peanut sauce) Lemongrass beef ... Shrimps with garlic & coriander root ... Primary dessert: Mango icecream on coconut milk rice ... And then the real desserts came in ... „Glen Els“ - a discontinued whiskey from Lower Saxony, Germany (not to far from my home village) Hakushu 12 years - a discontinued whiskey from Japan (very far from my hometown, yet my absolute favorite) Kavalan, Solist series, Vinho barrique, cask strength ... Chicken skin, fried in its own fat, served with Shichimi Togarashi from the oldest producer in Tokyo (with double orange peel as per my request). A couple other whiskeys not pictured - I am a very happy Camper tonight 🤗

    Dinner 2020

    I watched „Somebody feed Phil“ yesterday, the Chicago episode. Craved a fried polish hot dog topped with sweet onions the whole day. Netflix be damned ...
  14. @TdeV, my usual pizza is 250 g (63% hydration), aged 2 days in the fridge. Hand tossed to about 28-30 cm diameter. I use a 1 cm thick pizza steel, 36 x 36 cm. Preheated with convection at maximum (250 oC) for 45 min, last 15 min with top broiler on. The broiler is 12 cm away from the steel. The broiler needs to be on, when loading (glowing red), otherwise the top doesn’t cook properly. IR thermometer reads of the pizza steel typically yield 310-320 oC. Before I aquired the described setup, I used full fat dry mozzarella with some Parmigiano for flavor, as regular mozz left too much liquid. Now I can use brine-stored buffalo mozzarella without any issues. Pizza with above specifications and in my current setup will cook in about 3.5 to 4 min ...

    Pork neck, braised with fennel, rosemary, onions & garlic. Served with mashed potatoes laced with caramelized garlic & Parmigiano ...
  16. It boils down (no pun intended) to your setup and the time it needs to cook your pizza. In my pre-baking steel times a pizza took around 7 min. Fresh mushrooms - even thinly sliced - gave up far too much water during that cooking period to be used efficiently. Now, with baking steel & broiler I am in the 3.5 min range and heaps of mushrooms can be easily piled onto the pie and cook down nicely without any sogginess ...

    To be honest: I’ve never had it without that hollowed out pineapple, when in Thailand. Since you need only the flesh to make it ...

    Had an old friend over - felt good after the last months to restart our social life. I made some Thai-ish BBQ ... Cucumber & squid salad ... Lamb larb ... Pineapple fried rice ... Lemongrass pork belly, chicken satay & shrimps (and garlic honey veal, that was gone too soon) Tom Kha Gai (doesn’t look like much, but was veeeeery good) Dessert for all: coconut milk rice with mango icecream ... Dessert for me: Hakushu 12
