    A steam is much preferred, efficiency aside. Blanch/boil will pull nutrients into the water and out of your veg (surely you do not eat them just for their great taste alone!?). Steam will retain a far higher %. Or we can just be rabbits and eat everything raw.....or not.

    Favorite Risotto?

    This is the best way to do any type of risotto IMO. Not only can you create a flavour base via the stock but you can then add a big boost of flavour by reducing the main component separately and adding it at the end of the cook or off the heat completely. I do this with mushroom risotto as well.
  3. Cool shot. The muted colors on the mountain sides remind me of the Group of Seven....
  4. Beer nuts. A once in a while treat, but oh so good...

    pea and manchego sauce, bacon, garden asparagus and snap peas. Parsley, chives - parm.
  6. I was unsure if you had a line of Icelandic blood coursing through you.... And how will you know if it's tasty or not if you don't bite the bull ......😜
  7. Thanks for taking us along with you @KennethT! The question is, how brave are you / will you be trying fermented shark!? 😛

    Someone's been watching a few Disney movies 😜 (I can empathize...) @liuzhou - 'local' as in, it did not have to board a train or aircraft to make it's way to my plate - aka typically within 100KM of the butcher.

    😆 You would love Dario, Anna. His passion and love for beef is palpable and he is a true joy to be around. He would convert you - forever and a day; and you will thank him for it as well 😛

    I will wade into this one (albeit late to the party). In my eyes there is no comparison to a 8-12 week aged piece of beautifully raised local 'organic' beef - the amount of flavour from the meat alone is unreal. Pork cannot compete with that! Go have a meal at my buddy's Cecchini's place. He will convert you; forever.

    Had you seen it in the GTA? If so let me know where, I will go grab us each a bottle!
  13. Northern Catalpa - you got it. Thanks for the reminder. Love the leaves as well, great for mulch!
