Re: What did you cook today?

That looks remarkably close to an English breakfast... you've inspired me to get the sausage, bacon, egg, Heinz and fried toast on at the weekend. So wrong but so right. Yes, exactly! A few years ago, when I first wondered can I do this? , I realized that precedent had long been set. Not that this ...

Re: What did you cook today?

Tonight was my third run at roasted beet salads, and I was inspired by a recipe I saw in ‘Hugh’s Three Good Things’ for beet, walnut and feta. It was a welcome change from all the wok'ing this last week . . . . . . Would I make it again? Yes, it's now added to our weeknight meal options list. Very ...

Those look really great, Ray. I've tweaked it a bit over the years but her mapo tofu recipe is my go-to. I think that one appeared in Land Of Plenty but it can be found via several online sources, too.

Re: What did you cook today?

I’ve started journaling at work on the advice of a mentor, and it’s proving helpful, so I’m going to start to try to end each of these posts with the same two questions that force me to refect in a productive way: ‘What went well?’ and ‘What could I have done better?’ Hope you folks don't mind comi...

My family has been clamoring for this, so baked rotini again tonight.

Re: What did you cook today?

Well after all that head scratching, my wife turned around and decided she wanted to make pasta puttanesca tonight. I still had the cooking itch, and so decided to finish what I started with sweet and sour cabbage last night by cooking actual sweet and sour chicken :lol:. It must have ignited a cra...

Re: Silent Movie

Love it . . . but not actually silent, just no voice track. And the sound that is there is really cool and, I think, would be potentially quite valuable to someone who wanted to learn about sharpening.

What are you making tonight? Struggling with inspiration. Done Indian recently, Mexican recently, Italian recently, a ton of Japanese... all the usual suspects. Thinking about just buying a whole chicken, spatchcocking it per the post from someone on here a while back, and calling it a day. No side...

Re: What did you cook today?

Lol Ronnie the knife looks like what i got from Japanese Woodworker few years ago. Meal looks awesome though! No matter how much I try to get my family to use some of my more durable, stainless J-knives, they've gravitated to this one. It is shorter than most of my other knives, so maybe that has s...

I want one of their handheld torches too, but that's another story. One of these, I have . . . and I find it very useful (not so much in the kitchen but around the abode). If it make matters any easier, they are quite compact. :mrgreen: Given the labor of love that went into restoring it, and seemi...

Re: Wok suggestions?

R_S: a potential solution would be a wok grate (wok ring but a stove top grate) that fits your range/cooktop. Or... this on top of your stove. 15,000 BTU concentrated in the middle. Go big or go home :lol: https://www.amazon.com/Iwatani-Corporation-America-ZA-3HP-Portable/dp/B006H42TVG Do not judge...

Hard to go back to store bought . . . Yeah, that's a blessing and a curse, for sure. Those bagels do look great, though. I don't know if I am overthinking sourdough - unlike woks - but I sure have been thinking a lot. LOL - there's no such thing. As long you're enjoying the process, just keep going...

Re: What did you cook today?

Great meal! I like how you amped up the masaman. I must remember to get bamboo shoots, I keep forgetting about those. Yeah, the canned shoots are easy because they can store dry until you open them. And I love the funkiness and crunch they impart. I can't take any credit for the curry paste enhance...

As for my wok "collection," let's just say that it's completely unintentional. :lol: A combination of inexperienced purchases, well intentioned gifts, and a need for increasing capacity. For me, the parameters have not been static. No question IMO, that thin is better with a wok, otherwise...

Re: Show us your new knife!

Hey, I have a "set" of two of Napa Style Santoku knives like yours I got at Costco years ago! So, are you selling them in the for sale subforum here? I think I'd probably have to pay someone to take them off my hands. :lol: Unlike a gyuto, a Santoku is supposed to be three knives in one, ...
