I am from and live in England and here a casserole means a stew cooked in the oven. It seems like the American version is quite different and we would probably call it a gratin. Can SEers provide me with their favourite recipes for American-style casseroles? I am interested in trying some that will keep out the cold weather.
*no beans including lentils (I have IBS and beans are not friends with my digestive system - peas are OK in moderation)
*can't access many authentic Mexican items, we don't do Mexican food that much here and to be honest I'm not much of a fan myself
*slow cooker casseroles would be much appreciated, and/or easy recipes
Hi, in a couple of weeks it will be my turn to cook for a fortnightly informal discussion group in my university's chaplaincy. We have a farmer's market on campus on the day of the group, happily enough, so I'd like to use some nice fall produce, but can't think what to do. It needs to be vegan (well, vegetarian and dairy-free, so basically vegan), go with bread rather than rice (we have bread and wine with the meal, also I fail at cooking rice anyway), something that will keep warm happily if people are late, and not have beans (I have IBS and can't handle beans). Can I get away with serving curry without rice? It would have to be mild though. Any ideas? Ratatouille or a basic veggie stew seems a bit boring. The meal would be serving about 6-8 people.
As much as I love authentic Chinese food, I must admit to being intimidated by the more abrupt waitstaff in Chinatown. I would love to expand my palate and try more unusual Chinese dishes, where are the best (and friendliest if possible) places in Chinatown to do this? I love offal, the only things I won't eat are balut or eyeballs and I don't expect either in authentic Chinese food! So 'nasty bits' are OK with me :) I like Hong Kong food so far, but would like to try different regional dishes - OK, I might go back to HK Diner for some bubble tea later though ;) Also, how can I convince the staff that I am genuinely interested in the food and not just a tourist? I mean, I am a tourist but I'm a food tourist most of all!
