  1. I would also recommend a KitchenAid but the KSM150PSER Artisan with the tilt-head stand, not the one with the fixed head stand, I found this feature very useful. It is rather big and heavy but very reliable and powerful, 5 Qt., use it a lot to make bread, lots of attachments, over 7,000 excellent customer reviews, I think the price is right and I prefer the stainless steel bowl instead of a plastic container
  2. I cannot pretend to be an expert on black tea or even tea but always get leaf tea (never sachet) and organic if I can find. For Lapsang Souchong tea, I order from Solstice Tea Traders traditionally smoked (? again not an expert) but I do like it Apparently ( according to the package) smoked dry on pinewood fire, favorite tea of Sherlock Holmes... or may be rather the author Arthur Conan Doyle ...

    Organic Yeast

    I agree about organic or not, for the yeast, for my bread, I like this Red Star yeast. However, I prefer to use organic flour
  4. Worked at a patisserie for quite sometime and one of the things I learned and enjoyed is a good chocolate sprayer you can create magic with fruits, ice cream, cookies, etc. Now I have one of the best Krebs Lm3 Hotchoc Heated Chocolate Spray Gun and let me tell you kids of the neighborhood love it Just a fruit, cherry, apple, grape, you name it, becomes a candy and ! a good healthy candy with dark chocolate which is high in anti-oxidants
  5. Yep ! also use bleach: Clorox Clean-Up Cleaner Spray with Bleach apparently "kills 99.9% of household bacteria in 30 sec. and kills also virus" and removes stains and grease that I can confirm
  6. I'have a Yoshihiro Mizu Yaki Yoshihiro Mizu Yaki Blue High Carbon Steel Black Damascus Kiritsuke Japanese Multipurpose Chef Knife 8.25 In with Nuri Saya Cover very high quality, got it from a Japanese chef, friend of mine. Best
  7. Interesting article ! Thanks for posting the link
  8. I've been baking my bread for quite a while and recently found Great River Organic Milling, Organic Whole Wheat Bread Flour, grown in the USA. Excellent quality
  9. Microwave 1min. every week or so, that's what I read, and seems to work well.
  10. Have been using a set of Pyrex Corning Visions glass cookware; safe to cook acid-based food, made of glass-ceramic, dish washer safe, and pretty durable and easy to clean

    Plastic wrap

    Me too, not too impressed by Costco wrap (although, find their big aluminium roll a good deal), and yes, also vote for theReynolds 916 2000' Length x 24" Width, PVC Foodservice Wrap Film, prefer a good width. For sure, good quality
  12. Have you considered growing your garlic, for now, I'm doing it now in pot on a balcony. Easy, buy one bulb, divide all cloves and plant them half-finger deep, water not too much. Of course doing it in a garden with several bulbs, you get lots of organic garlic for very cheap.

    Field Skillet

    True ! This is another option to get restored cast iron pans just wondering how to make sure this is (certified/recognized/... ? ) good quality

    Bay leaves

    Unfortunately, no garden for now So, get bay leaves on-line in bulk and organic. Actually, for cooking this is very convenient, price is good, quality good, get another 1 pound bag whenever I need it. So, I am very satisfied

    Field Skillet

    I have this Cast Iron Skillet (12.5 inch) by Utopia Kitchen pre-seasoned, good quality and good reviews and also nutritional source of iron
  16. So, here is the catch, you have to be careful with the credit card you use for the order in a currency other than the dollar, and from a foreign country. Most on-line purchase with credit card (Visa and Mastercard) will add a fee. As far as I know, the only credit card that is not adding a fee is Capital One. Any other credit card company with no currency conversion ? Please feedback welcome . And another question on that subject, when travelling, which bank is the best? Thanks
  17. For a "quality" kitchen faucet, here is aDelta Faucet 9159-CZ-DST Trinsic Single Handle Pull-Down Kitchen Faucet with Magnetic Docking...must be beautiful... Can't afford that, but anyway, just wondering, for that price, water filter...
  18. I do not know about Wantanabe, but about a traditional knife made in Japan, got really interested in Sashimi sushi a while ago, and wanted to follow the tradition, so got one of the best: Sashimi Sushi Knife 30cm with Wodden Sheath wodden sheath, quality Yasuki. Got the recommendation from a Japanese friend.
  19. Have you checked Lorenzo? Just called a friend of mine, she has this 8 settings set porcelain I like this simple design, called Verona (?) , and it is dishwasher safe
  20. Read the other day at friend's house The Ultimate Bar Book: The Comprehensive Guide to Over 1,000 Cocktails enjoyed it, some interesting cocktail recipes, and also classic cocktails
  21. Decided to get the Euro Cuisine Greek Yogurt Maker but with the stainless steel strainer, good reviews, quality seems good as well.

    Foodie Tech

    Found this very interesting, as a geek and good-food lover My question (as a geek) is about IOT (:Internet Of thinks), meaning to share data/info ? Especially about recommendations / advices about products from and shared among customers
  23. Wow ! (again ) Walmart and Kroger #1 and 3 ! This is interesting. I suppose the organic produce market is becoming very competitive !
  24. Wow ! Interesting ! So, Whole Food and Trader's Joe way behind ?
  25. Interesting post, Just saw the wall-mounted drying rack for the sausages ! Cool ! So, looked at the Ikea site and then found a (what i think is also a quality 'food' rack) for pasta and sausages sturdy and stainless-steel wall mounted rack . So, still thinking about which one Being more expensive. But , then was just wondering about amazon in Japan ? can you order over there ? i know for a fact that in europe it's no problem, but Japan? just asking the question
