My son and his wife recently relocated to Hamamatsu, Japan. They have a fully equipped kitchen (minus oven) but little Japanese. I have been trying to send them easy recipes made of ingredients likely to be available locally. Anyone have any experience or suggestions? Thanks in advance.
I keep reading about how great Spam is - I think not. Nor do I enjoy sousemeat or head cheese. But there is one kind of pork in loaf form that cannot be beat: scrapple! I'll have mine crispy brown cooked slow in a cast iron skillet. By itself, with eggs and hash browns, in a sandwich and fantastic with homemade salsa on top. How do you like your scrapple?
I need to make a pesto but must leave out pine nuts, or any other nuts or seeds. In order to have some nut flavor, I was thinking of increasing the parmigiana then reducing the salt in the pasta water to balance. Anyone have any different ideas or experience? Thanks
Know there has to be all kinds of interesting things going on in the world of pizza, so what happened to "This Week In Pizza" ????
It's Tuesday and I'm going into serious withdrawal without seeing some great pizza. What happened to My Pie Monday?
Going to try a modified gas grill hack today. Plan to put my 5/8 in Cord. stone down on the grates. The warming rack of my Weber Q320 is just wide enough to span the stone and should hold my Emile Henry stone about 3 inches above. Do I need be concerned about closing off the sides and back (there is little room)? Wondering if just having the top stone will produce some faster, and better tasting, results?
Had a few owners of the Big Green Egg tell me that it is as good as a wood fired oven for cooking pizza and baking bread, it's just smaller. What has your experience been? If you couldn't have an WFO, would you buy one? What size?
My dough is proofing in the fridge and I want to make some pies tomorrow. On one I would like to use the 1/2 ounce of dried porcini mushrooms leftover from tonight's dinner. What one other topping would go best with the porcini?
I grew up eating "tomato pie" but cannot locate a recipe to make it anywhere. This was made at most Italian bakeries on sheet pans and cut into squares. Different than pizza or "sicilian pizza", the crust is thick but soft, and it typically was topped only by a thick layer of paste-like tomato sauce with herbs: sometimes a few anchovies were added. Thanks for any help.
