Re: Show us your new knife!

Not new but after 10 months of mostly being stuck at home, it appears that cleaning out the basement can no longer be procrastinated. So, Day 1. Try to control your envy but look what I found . . . https://www.ronniesuburban.com/photos/food/knives/santoku.set.21.0115.01.napastyle.set.jpg Napa Style...

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: Do like Ms. Belle and just charge shipping. You win, the "bu...

Re: What did you cook today?

Oh duck! It's been a while. Man, that looks yum! Reminds me of some Czech duck I had in Prague, with red and white cabbage, and something they call Kneydlik (not sure about spelling). So, someone recently 'thanked' an old video post of the Wok Therapist I posted on the Carbon Skillet thread. I watc...

Re: Baking Much?

No....everything stays the same. Just much easier to use and the results seem to be more consistent. The crust seems better too. Yes...don't get me started on the sale. I paid $100 more that this new price! Sad Panda is sad for you. :cry: I saw that a Lodge dutch oven combo cooker . Put the loaf on...

Thank you Ms. Belle, that was an interesting read about Mr. Cen's woks. Too bad he didn't get an apprentice or three.

Will the next order also be made by Anryu san hisself? I'm sure Ikeda san knives will be wonderful to, but I've been wanting one by Anryu for a bit now. Last chances I guess.

Re: Wok suggestions?

Does anyone remember an infomercial for hand hammered woks? It was done like a 30 minute show with a live audience. Pretty cheesy stuff but I remember them showing workers in China with hammers banging out flat disks of steel into shape. “But wait, there’s more! You also get a SOS to clean your new...

Re: Wok suggestions?

Chappy Chap, did you do a search for woks here? I did a while back and someone bought one from Japan. Can't remember the user name, or the brand name, but they really liked the wok. Another user here bought one from the wok shop, a thicker one. You might want to read about woks at the Wok Shop. Ther...

Did you want it? Will you like it more than having the money it cost in your pocket? If yes, then you made a good purchase.

There are a million ways to bake sourdough and many people go with the "winging it" way very successfully. I have found that it does not work in any reliable way so I am a stickler for precise amounts, times and temps. To the degree, gram and minute. Even then I get the occasional flat lo...
