Which book/recipe?

The town I’m in this week has lots of people selling fresh ravioli filled with asparagus and it’s delicious.

the scarpetta book. Yerac and I are referring to Conant's spaghetti recipe, which she brought up itt awhile ago.

I definitely add the butter but I think the early videos of this I watched have absolutely no cheese involved.

Yerac, Thursday, 26 April 2018 19:47 (six years ago) link

I am very curious about this large amount of cheese. I had assumed you just meant some shavings on top.

Yerac, Thursday, 26 April 2018 19:48 (six years ago) link

Ok, I see in the video above he sprinkles some in while it's in the pan. My spouse doesn't eat cheese so I guess we always ignored that part.

Yerac, Thursday, 26 April 2018 19:52 (six years ago) link

I think it was 0.5 cup, which is a pretty large amount

Tapes 'n Tapes of Osho (Sufjan Grafton), Thursday, 26 April 2018 19:58 (six years ago) link

Yeah, I see that although in some recipes online it says 2 tablespoons.

Yerac, Thursday, 26 April 2018 20:09 (six years ago) link

Yeah, those seem to be for a smaller serving size, though. Also lots of unclear info about the volume of pasta. Bc 1 lb of fresh is not the same as 1 lb pf dry, before its cooked anyway.

Tapes 'n Tapes of Osho (Sufjan Grafton), Thursday, 26 April 2018 20:23 (six years ago) link

I think we usually do a pound of fresh pasta for one large can of tomatoes (or 2 regular size cans). It's been so long since we have had good tomatoes around to use. But we also don't like a lot of sauce. We also do a large slice to the garlic and don't strain that or the basil out.

Caprese-style chicken breasts stuffed with tomato, basil, and mozzarella.

I got the Lucky Peach 101 Asian Recipes cookbook for my bday & i cant wait to try some of these recipes esp hainan chicken rice.

the design is suuuuch a nostalgia trip. My mum had a shelf full of 70’s “Asian” cookboks from when everyone bought shitty aluminium woks & a jar of msg & made sweet & sour chicken every Friday night - the book is such a throwback, it cracks me up.
The photography is spot on & the typeface, layout, even the title...somewhere between triggering & comforting, lol.

i had some good italian sausage i had to use so i just browned an onion, added the sausage, added fire-roasted tomatoes. then poured it all into some pasta i made a few days ago. it was surprisingly good.

you bet, nancy (map), Monday, 7 May 2018 00:44 (six years ago) link

sounds good to me

call all destroyer, Monday, 7 May 2018 01:19 (six years ago) link

I am laughing at those Lucky Peach cookbook pics that I can find online. I Love them and am trying to think of a person to gift this to.

Yerac, Monday, 7 May 2018 02:05 (six years ago) link

yeah, that book looks amazing and I will buy it eventually

Tapes 'n Tapes of Osho (Sufjan Grafton), Monday, 7 May 2018 03:21 (six years ago) link

It’s good, rip lucky peach

y’all have GOT to try this
https://food52.com/recipes/75260-spanish-baked-rice-with-chorizo-and-chickpeas

If you’re going for a meal instead of just a side dish I would recommend doubling the chickpeas and upping the currants a bit too.

This look really, really good. I may try this out this week but substitute out the meat for something else. I wonder if chunks of some type of fish would be good in it. I am glad they included the pic because I was confused about the head of garlic.

Yerac, Sunday, 13 May 2018 18:27 (six years ago) link

I've been making these whack momofuko compost-like cookies every weekend for about a month. I still don't have a process/recipe down but I pretty much now add 2 teaspoons of ground coffee, 1 teaspoon of indian chili powder, peanut butter, quinoa cereal flakes, vegetable potato chips and chocolate chips (no chocolate chips for me). I want them flatter and chewier but I think I think it's because I try to add 3/4 the amount of sugar and butter?

trader joe’s soyrizo imo, or a DIY seitan chorizo. Dice it up tiny like the picture.

the masseduction of lauryn hill (Stevie D(eux)), Monday, 14 May 2018 00:06 (six years ago) link

I thought about soyrizo but it's more crumbly and was trying to think of something with heft.

Yerac, Monday, 14 May 2018 00:29 (six years ago) link

Whipped up some fresh fettuccine with leeks and crumbled Italian sausage for mother's day dinner. It was quite yummy and easy to make.

Mario Meatwagon (Moodles), Monday, 14 May 2018 00:53 (six years ago) link

ramp season is here so i made ramp chimichurri for hanger steak tonight

Squeaky Fromage (VegemiteGrrl), Monday, 14 May 2018 01:53 (six years ago) link

successfully made Hainan Chicken Rice from the 101 Easy Asian Recipes book.
Delicious!

Squeaky Fromage (VegemiteGrrl), Monday, 14 May 2018 03:20 (six years ago) link

Yessss I gotta do that again some weekend soon, it’s so worth it

valorous wokelord (silby), Monday, 14 May 2018 04:07 (six years ago) link

I ended up buying that book already. Only worry is the lack of fried stuff. Fried stuff is delicious.

Tapes 'n Tapes of Osho (Sufjan Grafton), Monday, 14 May 2018 04:54 (six years ago) link

It's a stupid worry, though, because it's one of the main stated constraints of the book. Also frying is messy, so hell yeah if I can make good stuff without it.

Tapes 'n Tapes of Osho (Sufjan Grafton), Monday, 14 May 2018 05:10 (six years ago) link

Yes I’m cooking with that book a lot lately, made the fish sauce spareribs last night, and the Chinese sausage fried rice as a side. Coordinating was stressful but both were excellent.

droit au butt (Euler), Monday, 14 May 2018 06:58 (six years ago) link

we are addicted to the pepper/garlic/basil olive oil. been using it for toasting veggie burger buns and on toasted cheese sandwiches. will probably end up making that oil more frequently than the red sauce it's supposed to go in.

Tapes 'n Tapes of Osho (Sufjan Grafton), Thursday, 17 May 2018 18:44 (six years ago) link

At Roberta's pizza in Brooklyn they have a bottle of spicy hot oil (kind of like this^^^) on every table. It's kind of addictive and the only time I ever put oil on my pizza. So good. Are you straining out all the basil/garlic/pepper?

Yerac, Thursday, 17 May 2018 20:23 (six years ago) link

yes, I strain it out. I could definitely see leaving the stuff in there if I minced things up more nicely.

Tapes 'n Tapes of Osho (Sufjan Grafton), Thursday, 17 May 2018 20:54 (six years ago) link

thanks to thread I made the scarpetta spaghetti recipe, only instead of basil I used rosemary and instead of tomato sauce I made tomato soup

mom tossed in kimchee (quincie), Thursday, 17 May 2018 22:54 (six years ago) link

so basically my post is every comment to any online recipe, ever

mom tossed in kimchee (quincie), Thursday, 17 May 2018 22:54 (six years ago) link

scarpetti soup sounds good. there's a whole section of flavored oils in the book. going to flavor some oils later.

noticed a local place that uses beets on various vegetarian sandwiches, which seemed uninspired to me at first. but the idea stuck w/me and now i'm addicted. just made a bagel with a bit of cream cheese, a layer of thinly sliced steamed beets, about a third of a mashed avocado and some chopped up thai chiles. the combination sweet/salty/creamy/spicy is the kind of taste sensation i live for dammit

lâche pas la patate (outdoor_miner), Saturday, 26 May 2018 15:08 (five years ago) link

I love beets. We make a beet & tomato salad that's a classic.

Do any of you have a recipe for dan dan noodles that you're enthusiastic about? I'd like one where the peanut or sesame taste is prominent, but I'm happy to hear of others. I had a version of it in Japan that I have been trying and failing to replicate for months now.

droit au butt (Euler), Saturday, 26 May 2018 15:20 (five years ago) link

I wish I knew how to make stuff like that. My current favorite lunch spot has a fantastic Dan Dan hand-pulled noodles that's soooo good.

Mario Meatwagon (Moodles), Saturday, 26 May 2018 15:26 (five years ago) link

raw shredded beets go great on sandwiches or veggie wraps

Squeaky Fromage (VegemiteGrrl), Saturday, 26 May 2018 16:16 (five years ago) link

I don't make exact dan dan noodles, but I find noodle dishes are improved by magnitudes if you can get or make fresh noodles.

Ohhhh, I never even think of putting beets on things. I've been in a radish putting on things mood lately.

I greatly messed up a huge pot of caramelized onions I was making a couple of months ago ( i tried to use baking soda to speed up the process and obliterated it). but I froze it into ice cube trays and have been using it for a salad dressing base with whole grain mustard, lemon, capers, balsamic, garlic.

Yerac, Saturday, 26 May 2018 17:02 (five years ago) link

I was just planing to make dan dan noodles this week. I have the fuscia Dunlop Sichuan cookbook and was going to use that as a starting point. I actually bought the preserved mustard greens last week and need to make chili oil at some point

joygoat, Saturday, 26 May 2018 18:09 (five years ago) link

oh I have preserved mustard greens in the pantry, and need to make chili oil as well. The chili oil from that book is wonderful.

mom tossed in kimchee (quincie), Saturday, 26 May 2018 18:14 (five years ago) link

holy hell, the sichuan cookbook is like $90 on amazon! i've seen some recipes for dan dan noodles that call for broad bean chile paste and some that don't. do any of you with dan dan experience have feelings about this one way or the other? i think i wanted to make this dish abt a year ago but never found that paste @ my local asian food store, then i just forgot about it.

lâche pas la patate (outdoor_miner), Saturday, 26 May 2018 18:25 (five years ago) link

oh wait I don't have the sichuan book, just Every Grain of Rice

mom tossed in kimchee (quincie), Saturday, 26 May 2018 18:26 (five years ago) link

I just made what has become the unofficial main dish of Paris: bo bun.

I can check out the Dunlap dan dan noodles. I can get fresh noodles pretty easily in my neighborhood.

droit au butt (Euler), Saturday, 26 May 2018 18:30 (five years ago) link

The restaurant I go to puts in bok choy, I guess instead of mustard greens

Mario Meatwagon (Moodles), Saturday, 26 May 2018 18:32 (five years ago) link

I had to look up what bo bun is and the first article that came up from eater "what's the deal with all the bo bun in Paris."

Yerac, Saturday, 26 May 2018 18:40 (five years ago) link

A salmon dhansak is scheduled for tonight. Not sure how this will go.

Yerac, Saturday, 26 May 2018 18:43 (five years ago) link

Bo bun is rice noodles with a lemon & fish sauce sauce topped with peanuts and a meat or tofu. Beef is the mainstay topping here but I prefer pork because of the legendary pork salad at the Thai Café at St@nf0rd, RIP

droit au butt (Euler), Saturday, 26 May 2018 19:38 (five years ago) link

Do you have a favorite bo bun in Paris that has tofu?
