    What did you have for dinner?

    Put this together for a small Halloween gathering last night. We also had Italian beef sandwiches. I forgot I had ricota salata to add but no one went hungry.

    What did you have for dinner?

    I wish you all were my neighbors. @planethoff that dish looks incredible. I didn't do anything crazy but I did bust out my wok and do some stir fry.. I used a marinade of garlic, ginger, black vinegar, sesame oil, soy, garlic chili paste, and a little brown sugar. I stir fried the veges first...

    On Greek cuisine.. looking for resources

    I'm no geography scholar but according to wikipedia "Greece is a country located in Southern Europe" but it is "located at the crossroads of Europe, Asia, and Africa."

    On Greek cuisine.. looking for resources

    Thanks for all the replies. I got my book yesterday.. that thing is a nice addition to my relatively small collection. I love that it's hardback and huge but yet the layout of the recipes and of course the awesome photos make it very approachable. Just thumbing through it I saw quite a few...

    Last Meal

    Did any of you consider the meaning of a last meal? The questions is not.. what is your favorite food. It's what do you want your last food memory in your life to be? Most people will want some kind of comfort food, as dying is a pretty disconcerting thing. I'm sure for the instructor, for...

    And the September challenge is FISH...

    Yep.. I've done that and had a pretty perfect beer batter. I will say, like most batters you need to season the #$*% out of it. I have been meaning to experiment with different batters and processes (buttermilk dip vs. water.. vs. cornstarch.. etc) in order to document them as recipes. Might be...

    On Greek cuisine.. looking for resources

    Thanks guys. @phatch I ordered "Greece the Cookbook" .. I like hardback large references myself. Reviews were really good on amazon too. I don't think many Americans, like myself get enough exposure to real Greek food. Looking forward to getting it!

    So is frozen food really as awful as Gordon Ramsay makes it sound on TV?

    It's not meant to be rude, and not meant to be taken personally. I was responding to the general feeling of superiority in some of the replies.. examples: "With less effort you could make a proper sauce." "I have no idea why you are using mushrooms, celery, parsley etc. They have no place in a...

    On Greek cuisine.. looking for resources

    I could go google and poke around the internet and probably find some books, but what fun would that be not being able to chat with the rest of you about it?! I'm interested in spending more time on authentic Greek cuisine. For instance I have no idea if a "Greek salad" is actually greek. We...

    So is frozen food really as awful as Gordon Ramsay makes it sound on TV?

    Sheesh.. people talking about tomatoes like they are somehow fruits of Italy and Italy has some purview over them. Nope. Marinara yea probably.. but get over yourself.

    What did you have for dinner?

    Not really on a "diet" but I am trying to eat a little more sensible and cut back on foods that are full of calories. My supermarket had chicken breasts on buy one get one so I bought 18 of them. Sauteed chunks in some butter and garlic and set them aside. Then sauteed mushrooms with fresh sage...

    Toppings for Italian sausage

    Iceman you've gone off the rails. How about you go grill your Italian Sausage and eat it with bread. I'll smoke it and have it sliced with my brisket and pulled pork. Some dill pickle and if you MUST have bread.. plain old Martha White sandwich slices.. none of that fancy crusty Italian bread...

    Toppings for Italian sausage

    After having gone to NJ/Philadelphia a few times, I really like broccoli rabe with pork. The bitter greens are a nice counter to rich fatty sausage. For a similar reason I like sour kraut.. and for the same reason I like mustard vinegar sauces or cole slaw as you mention when I'm having pulled pork.

    What did you have for dinner?

    Trying my hand at a chicken mousseline for the first time. Cleaned chicken breasts of all skin/sinew and chunked them. Put them in the freezer to chill. Went about 1 egg white to 1 lb of chicken and processed them into a paste. Them continued processing with heavy cream. Kept a bowl on ice to...

    I'm underweight and need help

    Just to get an idea on the types of "healthier" foods people that are gaining or maintaining mass eat, you can google John Cena, The Rock, and diets and there are sites that rattle off what a typical daily diet looks like for them. Agree with others that you should see a nutritionist because...

    Favorite Spicy (hot) Dishes

    I like lots of spicy foods but one of my favorites now is from a place that opened nearby about a year ago. It's a Vietnamese pho joint.. they have a "spicy beef noodle" .. it's got a nice warmth and slow burn.. they give you chili paste on the side along with the normal Thai basil, bean sprouts...
