Hi all. I am deciding between Bistro Jeanty or ad hoc for dinner this weekend. I like the flexibility of Jeanty's menu, but I have heard great things about ad hoc. Anyone been to both of these restaurants and have some suggestions? Thanks in advance!
Hi -- I recently bought a Kitchen Aid stand mixer (the classic 250W) type, and I have been using it for some of the recipes I used to make with just a hand mixer. For some reason, I am finding that the recipes are not turning out the same. For example, last night I made (a half recipe) of Ina Garten's chocolate cake in the stand mixer and it came out awful! Completely dry and hard. That recipe has never failed me using a hand mixer. I think the problem was the KA was not able to mix all the ingredients well maybe since I halved the recipe? Seems like when there is not enough in the bowl, the KA is not able to mix everything well. Has anyone else had this kind of problem? Thanks!
Does anyone have any recommendations on where to buy vanilla beans online? I'm thinking amazon might be a good bet, but since I've never bought them online before, I was wondering if anyone has some advice? Thanks!
Does anyone know what the difference is between ricotta and paneer? According to wikipedia, ricotta is supposed to be made from the whey produced from cooking milk and adding an acid, whereas paneer is made from the curds produced from this process. However, I've seen many recipes that claim to make ricotta using the curds. This seems wrong to me since ricotta literally means 'recooked' and I don't see where the 'recooking' occurs in this process.
