    Question Regarding New Cast Iron Skillet

    They actually make a mold out of sand to cast the iron in. Years ago or even on more expensive cast iron pans these days, they would clean up the pan after the casting and smooth it all over. Lodge is cheap now and does not make a smooth finish any more. My wife bought a Lodge a while ago, and I...

    Give me your dream ravioli fillings

    Fig and blue cheese, they are my ultimate favorite. I use a little ricotta in it so i don't have to overwhelm the filling with blue cheese. I make a brown butter sage sauce for the pasta.

    What Is Better, Canned or Dehydrated Mushrooms?

    Chanterelle's are one of the only mushrooms that I find that lose all the flavour when dried (Actually Hedgehogs too). I find the best way to store these if you can't eat fresh are to freeze. I normally cook the chanterelle's and then freeze.

The best way to treat your board, is a mix of 6-1 or 8-1 walnut oil to beeswax. You can substitute the walnut oil...

    Lagom or Ordo, do you guys do anything with the roe? This being my first time I quickly came across the idea of salt packing the roe and storing it in the fridge or cellar to use later. When you are ready to use you soak it in water multiple times to get rid of all the salt. When ready you bread...

To the pickling base I added all spice, mustard seed, bay leaf, peppercorns and cloves. I then added some slices of red onion and lemon to the...

    I have never purchased or used herring before today. Randomly walking through a market, I noticed an older gentleman purchasing them. This caught my eye as they were really fresh looking and only $7/kg CDN. I ended up purchasing 3 kg as a start for my first herring experience. Pickled herring...
