I love to cook and experiment in the kitchen. I have 2 kids who have been eating curry since they could eat it pureed. :)
Oh yes. Bless this post. I love frijoles a la charros. I'm putting this on our next Tex-Mex night menu.
Cigar City is legit amazing. Pair o'Dice is another great local that wasn't mentioned. Amazing bourbon barrel Barleywine was one of their specials recently. I am glad to see our guys on the list.
All these ideas are fantastic. CiciC, I'm trying that ASAP.
This looks seriously amazing.
YES. This recipe is something I've been waiting for you to tackle forever! I feel like there's going to be a choir of (falafel) angels singing for me soon.
Melted brie is kinda my favorite thing in the world so this looks ... amazing. Just amazing. I want to eat it all.
FWIW: I now regret mentioning the specific ph thing. It was something I recalled offhand so the fact it worked in salad dressing didn't surprise me (and Daniel: the dressing is goooooood). I did not see it going this crazy pants...
Looks really good and I like that it is a mishmash of the two versions (and yay for reading the first paragraph, ha). I always cringe inwardly at the idea of throwing out one set of veg (idea of food waste, etc.), even though I get why. Can you help assuage my guilty feelings on that?
The ph of soy sauce is about 4.5 (it isn't an if, it is an easy search to find out the level), making it more on the acidity side of things. You're not removing an acid, just making it different than the expected one.
My husband thanks you, as this is his favorite dish.
You know what is delicious beyond belief? Braised celery. SWOON. I'm right there with you on that. And I love crunchy plain ole celery with a little fresh lemon.
No, I knew I needed this. In my heart of hearts. I knew I needed this.
Beautifully written piece. And Sundea: you missed the point; which was the emotional aspect tied to that cheap cup of coffee, the mental muscle memory that came with the 50 cent cup. It certainly brought me back to my grandmother's cup of coffee - with the 4 little creamer containers and 2 sugars. Something she shared. I tear up remembering it, and instead of wanting my fancy cold brew, now I want that. Because I miss her.
I actually also add some old bay/Chesapeake bay seasoning to the poaching liquid. I cannot resist that stuff.
Considering we just eat it on crackers in our house, this is excellent. I shall be eviscerating our noses soon.
True story: I have a friend who abhors eggplant. His favorite thing at our BBQ everytime? The baba ganoush. So, I feel like that is a win for the baba ganoush every time. Best of the dips.
Kenji, any thoughts on the best kind of charcoal to use? Brand/infused/etc.? Plain old?
The lazy side of me is so glad @VeganwithaYoyo asked that, because ... well, on quick dinner nights, that's exactly what I am going to do. The tarragon & lemon version looks really perfect for me.
I do so love Hugh Acheson.
This is one of the consistently good, informative and touchings series on Serious Eats.
I completely concur on the buttermilk in this recipe - it just elevates the dressing and makes it perfect.
I agree with every single point in this article. All of these things are bagel truths.
I always thank my lucky stars my MFM and OB gave me the green light on sashimi. I would have been lost with out my treats!
Tejava can sometimes be found at Trader Joe's. Those days are happy days for me.
Yup - Wegmans in VA has fresh baby corn available all the time! I too have a secret love of niche produce and the weird origins behind them, so I always loved being able to pick up a package. Now I live in FL and no such luck.
