    Weisswurst ?

    Nope ... its a “Feine Bratwurst”, so a fine pre-boiled sausage (spiced, but not cured, though). Texture is a bit firmer than a Weisswurst, and it is made from pork alone. Tasty ...

  2. This is how saturday laziness looks like:


    Oven fries & fried eggs for dipping. An odd sausage for extra protein 🤔

  4. At the butcher that had a suckling pig roll, which is essentially the deboned belly and back in one piece, connected by the still attached skin. I scored the meat, rubbed rosemary, fennel, lemon zest, chili, garlic & salt in, rolled the whole thing up and SV for 24h @ 68oC. Roasted in the oven to get a lovely suckling pig porchetta ...




    A pizza bianca to go with it ...



    Final assembly with baby spinach and a sauce made from two whole grain mustards & the bag juices. 



    Very simple, very good !

  6. Tori Paitan Ramen, ajitsuke tamago, chashu, nori - sometimes it just has to be (even though you prep for about three hours and eat in about 5 minutes).

    No rotisserie setup. To me rotisserie is a cross between grill and roast. I spatchcock for the grill and truss for the roast.

    I'm leaning towards the Canton white, may experiment a little....

    Have a look then at Hainanese chicken rice ...

    Senior engineer for premier biscuit chocolates in the UK, its a division of cadbury.

    This is from memory from our conversation 20 yrs ago, I think the basic idea is correct....best as I recall.

    Unfortunately not - if you are referring to a crystallization process, no electron transitions or photon emissions take place.

    You can measure the latent heat of crystallization accurately in a calorimeter, and I would suggest that this might be the underlying principle of that German tool you are referencing.

  9. Summer time - marinated pork collar, oven potatoes, goat cheese, chickpea salad, olives and a very yummy hanging tender from the BBQ ...

  12. This Sunday the little one requested “Minions”, accompanied by ...


    Salami & mushroom



    ”Hawaii” - lardons & pineapple 




    Aubergine & salami




    There was some dough left, so I prepared a “leftover” calzone, which will delight the little one for school lunch tomorrow.




    Since school restarted after the Corona “break”, school lunch catering has been discontinued; he gets now a lunch box everyday. There won’t be complaints tomorrow (actually, there aren’t any on the other days either 🤗).

    Most polenta pizza recipes bake the crust on a baking sheet.  I put it on parchment and slid that on to a pre-heated steel which yielded a crust that was crisper on the bottom with slices that could easily be picked up and eaten our of hand. 



    That looks pretty good - its just regular polenta, no binders added ? What temperature do you bake this for how long ?

  15. I found a small cured pork belly in the freezer and decided to roast it low & slow ...



    And, in order to fit it into the tiny glass form, I had to trim it generously and made steam-fried dumplings with the leftovers and cabbage ...






    At the end, I will have to eat the full pork belly by myself, as my family went exclusively for the dumplings 😉
