I'm making my list for this year's vegan experience -- other than a reminder to stock up on some nuts and nut milk and avocados, I'm good to go ! It's nice having a varied pantry ready to cover any dining contingency!
@kenji -- you are doing vegan month again, right? RIGHT???
I just dug out my fancypants blender today, and I really do like being able to make 5 minute tomato soup while my cheese toastie gets all toasty.
Dagnabbit, I am so sad I won't be in Boston before Nov :-(
Kenji, you remain, as always, my hero
Figs. Little heartbreakers. They go from syrupy goodness to moldy almost in the time it takes to get from the plate to one's mouth.
Love them, though, I put some on your soppresata pizza. An inspired choice if you ask me
I'm making this tonight in my massively underpowered oven, the crust might not reach great status, but I bet it will be delicious.
Oops, clearly I can't read. I skipped that the "Extra crunchy" step of chilling and refrying was optional, so I just followed the recipe, lol.
Excellent! I was not patient so I just fried and finished it in the oven. It passes the fried chicken test by being great cold for breakfast eaten over the sink.
Sometimes cheese food just hits the spot. I've no problem with it at all on a fast-food style burger.
BK is just gross.
This whopper--is a thing of beauty!
"No me gusta" translates as "it is not pleasing to me" to be literally literal ;-)
Within context, the meaning is understood.
Ahhh, I love that dirty water....
@Kenji, I'm with you, man. I wasn't at all homesick over the winter, but MAN I'd like to be home for the summer.
Now I have to go back and read the original. I get that weird pasta salad aftertaste too. So I never make it.
I don't really like bagels (there, I said it), but if I did, I'd hella love caraway seeds on one!
@el_duderino, I sure as heck have stood around the sous vide set-up with beers and friends.
What's your point? ;-)
The only thing wrong with these is that they aren't in my belly!
*Impatiently awaiting fresh corn season*
@Taste Traveller: That was specific to ice baths post-blanching. Next paragraph begins "That book got a lot of things right, but this is not one of them, ..."
Also, I'd ignore that same book's recommendation to aerate wine in a blender. Just, no.
Ah, the Internet. Where no deed of any kind goes unpunished.
I'll be pitching in my support--Looking forward to the videos!
I, too, found the La Tortilla tortillas thick, gummy, and disappointing. I didn't read the bag carefully, so I didn't intend to buy the hybrid ones, I just thought that they looked good. I don't have a problem with all corn tortillas falling apart or anything, so I'll stick to those from now on.
You can get fresh baby corn in most Giant supermarkets and Wegmans.
I've never seen dry ice at a supermarket, and I've lived in Maine, MA, PA, NY (not the city) and MD....
Aw man, I miss Kimball's!
Super good, Kenji. I made it with turkey thighs, and I did remove the skin before cooking. I made the recipe as far as the filling for tacos stage. I have enough sauce leftover to freeze for "even easier" enchiladas some night!
