    Trying something new

    It depends on what the original poster is hoping for as an end result. Chinese char sui works better on country style ribs than spares. Carolina vinegar sauce on beef ribs would be kind of odd, but at home on pork baby backs. Basically I asked because I wanted @chef leitheiser to provide a...

    THE AUGUST 2020 CHALLENGE IS . . . . . GREECE

    So I mentioned soup and salad the other day. Finally getting around to posting. The Players For the salad, basic Greek salad stuff. Red bell and green tomatoes. Usually these types of salad have green bell and red tomatoes. The green tomatoes are Lucinda, a type of green zebra, and fresh...

    What ribs, exactly? Pork spares? Loin backs? Country style "ribs"? Or are thinking of doing beef ribs? mjb.

    THE AUGUST 2020 CHALLENGE IS . . . . . GREECE

    I agree with @mike9 about just replacing lamb with goat. In truth, I'd bet that many lamb recipes actually started out as goat or mutton based back in the day, And I, too, have trouble find goat other than cut up into frozen, bone in cubes here in Salt Lake. I have heard there is a farm in...

    Weber Kettle rotisserie ?

    I really like my 22" Weber Kettle charcoal grill. Lately I've been wondering whether or not it would be worth it to get a rotisserie adapter for it? It's basically a ring the size of the kettle that fits on top of it, and the lid fits on top of that. It has a big skewer, a couple of...

    How much???

    So I have been toying with the idea of getting a new gas range. Our current one has some issues, though in truth it serves my modest needs. I'm browsing around on the net and see this...

    THE AUGUST 2020 CHALLENGE IS . . . . . GREECE

    I'm working on it. Will post the soup and salad in the next day or so, have a couple of lamb dishes in mind, as well as some ideas about fish. And I sort of remember a funny video about pronouncing 'gyro' as year-oh or jai-ro that I was going to post if I can find it again. mjb.

    THE AUGUST 2020 CHALLENGE IS . . . . . GREECE

    Wow, quite an impressive first dish. I have more humble plans, a soup and salad to begin. Got some chicken stock going, should be tasty. mjb.

    Slow Food Challenge 2020

    As a kid I grew up in southern Michigan, Northern Indiana. Michigan is known more for cherries than apples, but there were some good ones grown in the area. On the drive between Grandma Lutz's farm and our house in Dowagiac, later in South Bend, Indiana, there was one orchard that my father...

    THE AUGUST 2020 CHALLENGE IS . . . . . GREECE

    So inspired by this challenge I stopped by a place I've driven past a few hundred times, but never stopped to check it out. http://www.blackcherrymarket.com/ So I went inside to give it a once over. I will be back, they have some pretty good stuff there. I just picked up a few things. The...

    FYI - Challenge list

    A rough draft of a fairly complete list of the monthly challenges. Still need to fill in a lot of the host's names. And it might be nice to have a link to a photo of the winning dish in each challenge. And maybe break each year into its own table. Hopefully some of you will find it useful...

    THE AUGUST 2020 CHALLENGE IS . . . . . GREECE

    Nice choice! I mentioned egg and lemon soup in the Italian challenge, maybe I'll do a Greek version. And I did home made pita in the past, guess it is time to do it again. mjb.

    July 2020 Challenge - Italy

    Good job Mike9 ! I was impressed with the number of entries we had this month, nice to see a higher level of participation. Oddly enough, there some things I didn't see, like more soups - lemon and egg, Italian wedding, minestrone. Veal or chicken scallopini. Maybe @mike9 will be in a fowl...

    July 2020 Challenge - Italy

    Boy, that seemed like a lot of work. Not the Feast of Seven Fishes, but 3 seafood items are involved. Actually 4, given the anchovies. The Players You've already seen what went into the ricotta and the pasta dough. Shrimp, scallops and snow crab clusters. Anchovies, scallions, lemon...

    July 2020 Challenge - Italy

    Getting closer to an actual dish. Made some pasta dough. All purpose flour, eggs and salt. I do have some semolina, not sure if it is an 00 grind, I just went with the AP. Thought about doing it in the food processor, but decided for a ChefTalk challenge I should go old school by hand...

    July 2020 Challenge - Italy

    I know! It is good to see the level of interest in this one. And I'm still hoping to get in two more myself. I forgot I had this: I am planning on ravioli of some sort later today. Maybe I'll use this, maybe not. A lot depends on how well it goes with a sprinkler system repair I need to...

    July 2020 Challenge - Italy

    5 days to go. I said I had planned on 4, have posted 2 of them so far. Still want to do a pasta and a dessert. Thinking of a stuffed pasta, perhaps egg yolk or lobster ravioli. Not sure about dessert yet. But some possibilities for both dishes could involve ricotta cheese, so I made some...

    July 2020 Challenge - Italy

    Unlike Mike9, I made something perfect for a cold winter day, even though it will be close to 100F in a few hours. I've done beef shanks before, I wanted to try a more 'authentic' osso buco using veal shanks. The Players First off, got some veal shanks. 18 bucks a pound, ouch! Partners...
