Cooking Without Seasoning or a Pantry

Recommended Posts

Think of it as a Top Chef Quickfire Challenge. You get two ingredients of your choosing, water, a heat source, and whatever kitchen equipment you want. Nothing else. What's possible?

Caramelized onions.

That's only one ingredient -- you get immunity in the elimination round, Anna. :laugh:

Carmelized onions need some kind of fat, Peter. :cool:

Yes, I always add butter. But can't a chopped onion in a warm pan sweat, become translucent, then get brown and gooey on it's own sugar w/o the lipid?

Cereal and milk?

Oooh, didn't think of that. What kind of cereal would you use?

Steamed asparagus with grated pecorino on top.

That's a heavenly match. I give you four point five stars!

Sugar and corn syrup: hard candy (true it would be better with a flavor, but I did make some a couple of weeks ago to test a new mold of a Boston Terrier and the neighbor kids were happy enough)

Three ingredient dinner tonight: sopa de ajo

garlic, olive oil, water, bread.

add a poached egg and you're in business.

Pix in the dinner thread later.

yes I know it's 3 ingredients -- rules are made to be broken. ;)

Going for the single ingredient, no water and a heat source - grated cheese tuilles.

Kerry, can you elaborate? Just cheese?

Nothing I love better than the bits of cheese that ooze out of cheese biscuits, that brown and crisp up. So to make tuiles, you simply grate cheese, lay it in rounds on parchment, or sprinkle in a non stick pan. Picture here.

That's the spirit. Three's a good number.

Malted Barley, Hops, and Water = Beer. This will ferment naturally and become a nice lambic in a few years.

In addition to cereal and milk, I think pasta with butter is also pretty close to nirvana.

I could really go for some artichokes with butter right about now...

I do not know if I could do this without salt in the artichoke prep- but....possible

Thick homemade yogurt with a REALLY ripe banana mashed into it. Of course over cereal would make it a meal.

      I need a book on the application of rotavapor machine. I've searched something on web but i can't find something strictly professional for the kitchen please help me. To improve the research.

      After a delightful brunch at Koslow's Sqirl restaurant in Los Angeles, I've decided to attempt to cook through her cookbook. I'll post my results here.
       
      Please follow along and join in, if you're so inclined. Her food is wonderful, but I will surmise that her true deliciousness comes from using the best and freshest ingredients. I'll do my best to recreate the magic I felt at Sqirl.
       
      Here's the link to her book at Eat Your Books.

      Thanks to @blue_dolphin, I was forced to buy this cookbook  and it was delivered today.  No matter how hard I try, I just don't super enjoy cookbooks on my Kindle.  Anyway, I'll most likely be alone on this thread due to low okra likability lol, but I'm an only child and I'm used to being alone 😁
       
       

       
       First on the list will be the Kimchi Okra from page 100--as suggested by @blue_dolphin.
       
      I'll be back on this thread soon

      I'm asking $150 for the lot OBO.
