Well, your's makes the third dedicated food thread, along with:
- Anchovies , - Desserts and the unofficial "Randon Pictures- containing food.
At the very least, let's make it a rule to state the full address and telephone number of any established eateries that are featured. Who knows, FF might spin off  a Travel, Leisure & Vice forum !

OK, I'll bite... 8)

One of my favorite snacks are split Jalapeno peppers, stuffed with cream cheese and wrapped in a slice of thin cut bacon secured w/toothpick ->

If you're eating them in a very quiet room, you can almost hear the crackle of your arteries hardening!  ;)

I was going to say the same thing. I'd have to double my anti-cholesterol meds after one of those- but damn I bet it be worth it. That smokey, salty 'porky' flavour of bacon chased by the smooth lipid heaven of cream cheese- juxtaposed against the pipping hot searing experience of Jalapenos. Allow me to suggest a couple of bottles of chilled Coronas to chase those babies down with:thumbup: Gerat picture BTW. Hey did you make those yourself?

Thanks and yes I made'm up myself..  They take a bit of time to properly "shell" the Jalapenos, and packing in the cream cheese can be a bit messy - not to mention the bacon wrapping part but they are worth the trouble.  Just be sure and keep the heat nice and low.  A little bit of the cream cheese will ooze out, but they will be very uniform.  The ones in the photo were cooked a little too "hot" (fast) and could have benefited from a little extra time - but hey, I was about 10 beers deep & HUNGRY !

My favorite thing about this snack is that you can make them up in advance (to take camping) and keep them in a Tupperware container then fry them up when you get the serious munchies! 8)

Oh yeah, I amost forgot to mention that you're SPOT on with the Corona suggestion!  Sauza tequilla also makes a wonderfull pre- and post-cursor to "cut the grease!!"  But be warned - you will cook a second batch :drunk:

St Agur blue cheese is possibly the most fantastic strong cheese available in the world..

If you haven't tried it....I thoroughly recommend you do.....Even if you don't normally like strong/blue cheeses...you'll find this is rich yet smooth, strong yet creamy...

Mmm...lovely...
Title: Re: Food Pictures
Post by: arewethereyetdad on January 25, 2006, 04:32:02 PM
YES!  I'm a HUGE fan of strong cheeses like that.  That stuff is incredible!  Just bought some Campozola (same idea - strong flavored soft cheese).  If the world's food supply diminished to just sushi and cheese, I'd be just fine.  :laughing7:

No, but I've written it down and I'm going to ask for it at our local cheese shop.  I'm salivating at the thought.  What kinds of crackers do you use?  I like the Stoned Wheat Thins from Red Oval Farms (product of Canada).

Hi Troy...you'll not regret the St Agur....

Secret is to leave it out of the fridge for 30-40 minutes prior to serving..so that it's soft and creamy enough for spreading etc...

As for crackers...the thinner the better...

I LOVE British Blue Cheeses. Though I'm most familiar with Stilton ( passé ...I know). I'll head up to the Gourmet Deli up the street and see if they have some  St Agur. I've earned a treat dammit ! Here's an old picture of some non-descript Danish Blue cheeese. (http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v226/zephyrnoid/DSCN3031.jpg)
 I just bought grapes so all I need is some Stoned Wheat Thins , apples, Wassa and some wine. What do you suggest in the Wine Dept? I wonder if a hard cider might not work as well ?

Hey that's lovely. I've never had that. I'll be in Mexico City in April. Any tips on where I can get some ? "On its most basic level, Carne Asada is a marinated and grilled steak, sliced thin and served on tortillas. This “grilled beef” can be used however you want it, in tacos, burritos or served up straight. The basic method is to marinate most any kind of beef in a lime based marinade. Grill it over a hot fire and then slice into thin strips across the grain. But there is a whole lot more to it than that."

This is a Hot Pot restaurant in Northern Toronto, Canada.

Very cheap, $16 CND!!!  Great food!!!

For those of you that have not had the pleasure of a Hot Pot restaurant, they bring you a broth of your choice and place it on the hot plate on your table.  Then you go to the raw bar to get all you meats and veggies.  At ICook, they have a specail Seafood add on for about $4 CND which includes crab and oysters!!!  I can't wait until July when I'll be back!!

Enjoy!!

marinade with some Soy Sauce, fresh cropped garlic, fresh ground black pepper for 30-60min longer for thicker cuts.
grill on a open flame. then add a few dashes of Tabasco and enjoy... never use Steak Sauce, you'll ruin the steak!

How true the saying....airline food sucks, unless you know some Really Special Folks(tm). Follow your nose and be *REALLY* nice to them.. or bring food for them too (and not the inflight leftovers) :P

I must say your employer sure as heck makes it easy to wake up in the morning. If I had breakfast like that at work, I'd have NO problem waking up EVER again.

Nemul - the soya sauce and garlic thing is good. I love lots of crushed garlic and soya sauce. For the more adventurous, try oyster sauce.  You people sure aren't the typical Westerners who go "WHAT? RAW GARLIC?!?! SOYA SAUCE??!?! Only Asians eat that!" :icon_biggrin:


Here is another great classic:

(http://pix.lightrefineries.org/albums/misc350d/acc.sized.jpg)

Two half boiled eggs (three minutes in boiling water, not the usual 15 minutes). Crack 'em onto a plate, add black sauce and pepper. Ohhhhhh YEAH. Egg rules!!
Title: Re: Food Pictures
Post by: nemul on February 05, 2006, 11:01:35 AM
try oyster sauce.

hmmm... how does it taste?
Title: Re: Food Pictures
Post by: Lightstream on February 05, 2006, 12:01:19 PM
Good! Marinate the same way as you would with the soya sauce - it's thicker, so what you do is spread evenly and let it sit. It's salty too, so don't add any extra salt, just pepper when you're grilling it.
Title: Re: Food Pictures
Post by: nemul on February 05, 2006, 09:49:14 PM
might have to try that one day.... so it's similar to soy sauce?

A french connection
A young French lady & I were exchanging glances at the Gym to today. This made me very hungry for something French and yet, it was a Vermont kind of day for me so I combined the two emotions into a recipe I call Lapin Vermontois .

Rabbit Saute in Vermont Hard Cider ( Woodchuck)
Other ingredients include, Vidalia Onion, Golden Raisins and One small Gala Apple, Black Peppercorns and dash of cloves.
Base fat is Canola Oil.

This turned out so well, I just wed it to Parpardelle in butter and Viola! My appetite for something Rabbit is fulfilled.
And yet... I still need something French ... Maybe tomorrow ? ;)

Thicker consistency, possibly a little saltier, with a unique flavor of its own. Real oyster is involved somewhere in the production process, but don't let that turn you off, it tastes very different from its namesake.

Also, stir-fry veg with oyster sauce works well, but I hate veg anyway, so that doesn't help me ;)

We usually get our meat at markets that sell Mexican Style Foods. The meat is usually soaked in a Carne Asada Marinade. The meat that is used is Chuck Steak or Loin Cuts. The marnade consists of Lime, Pepper and other seasonings.

I found a Carne Asada Marinade at Costco that tastes very close to what we buy. This is what the bottle looks like.

Hahhaha.. perhaps I need to take the 350D out to lunch some day. Chicken rice anybody? :P

As I once explained many years ago, there is a difference between "chicken rice" and "chicken AND rice". No disrespect intended to erns' awesome chicken and rice but his falls into the latter. When making chicken rice, you need to steam cloves of garlic, chicken fat, and some pandan leaves in together with the rice until the flavor migrates into the rice. Here I must admit I'm a little better at eating than cooking the stuff.. (we leave it to the professionals)  but that is my idea of how it's done. Specifics vary and are usually heavily guarded family secrets (that's how the chicken rice joints all stay in business).

The differentiator is the rice, basically. The chicken itself can be either lightly roasted on the outside, or boiled. Seriously. Boiled chicken has never tasted this good.

Serve with black soya sauce (thicker than the light soya sauce), Asian chilli with a hint of lime, and ground ginger lightly fried in oil. Usually accompanied by soup - another 'trade secret' thing. Almost always clear, with chopped spring onion and Chinese parsley.

I guess I am giving away where I currently am (the one place that claims to be the home of *THE* authentic chicken rice), but oh well. Such is the price of sharing good food I guess :P

Marbling...those yummy flat globules inside the meat.  Melting gently as you grill the steak, filling the air with its wonderful aroma and making the meat even more tender.  Yummy!

I have been sick the last week with a bad sore throat. My throat was hurting so I did not feel like eating any kinds of meat. I missed out on thin sliced pork, and Carne Asada.   :(

I did not even feel like taking any pictures. Today I was feeling a little better so I took some pictures.

Carrots, onions, potatoes, and tomato sauce.

I cook the short ribs in the tomato sauce for and hour and 15 minutes, at low heat. The last 45 minutes I add the carrots, onions and potatoes.

The meat gets very tender.

Although the breakfasts were nice I spent the rest of the morning hungry.  I'm more of a "Full English" person myself.

Which reminds me. I once caught an Air France short-haul flight in the morning from France to the UK. I knew they would serve breakfast but I didn't want to go hungry and I wasn't sure when I'd be able to buy lunch.  I got up extra early to eat a "proper" breakfast and then I figured I'd have a "snack" (cafe au lait and croissants) on the plane.  Well they served a "Full English" with bacon, eggs and all the French stuff too!  Needless to say I ate it!

Been missing this thread for  a few days.  Too bad I missed all this yummy food.  Mad Cows seem to be more of a concern for the British than here in Deutchland.  Course everyone is so picky here that if the cow wasn't coddled by its natural mother, fed only organic foods, allowed to prosper and have a life before its eventual steak status - nobody wants it because it is unhealthy.  All the same time they are chain smoking cigarettes.... go figure.

In general, the best beef in Europe is either coming from Argentina or US - there isn't alot of space to raise cattle here anyway - and I have to show them HOW to cook a steak properly.  You should watch the masses draw back in fear from a steak that is not burnt before serving!  Muahahahaha!

For those watching the new though, there are massive sales going on for choice cuts of swan, duck, and other various birds found at certain locations in Europe!

Appearances can be VERY deceiving  :(
This was part of our dinner last week at a retaurant in Yurp, near my parent's place.
Big picture is dessert, a multifoliate pastry filled with custard cream and topped with Crème Brullee. This tasted great but hit my stomach like a ton of bricks!
Bottom left is Carpacio Di Salmone Fume. Fancy words for thinly sliced smoked Salmon. I can't begin to describe how flawed this was! Something possessed the chef to interleave the otherwise lovely Salmon with some bacon fat or something like lard. Barf!
Bottom right is medallion of Veal. This was the only perfect part of the meal.
The biggest failing of all was the selection of Horrible Wines!
Lesson learned? Never trust the wine selection to what is obviously a rookie chef passing for Sommeliere.

NOTE: 'Bird's Eye' View Shot of plates. Try that with one of those fancy Screen-stuck-on-the-back-of-the-body Digicams ;)
Flip screens RULE !

Thinly sliced beef eh?

Thinking of carpaccio, I almost misread your last sentence as "ran over some rabbit" - what a heck of a way to make carpaccio. DEFINITELY not the official recommended best practice....

Thankfully the other place where I occasionally indulge in this kind of food serves good carpaccio, cheaper, better beef, more of it, plus real buffalo mozerella cheese.. good stuff. Whole plateful too.

Interestingly, the place with the single slice of carpaccio went out of business some time back. Figures! One would not catch me going back there.. not when there is so much other good AND better priced food available. It's a tough market.. the customer's got a choice and I like it :)

Not to bad mouth Swiss Cuisine or Chefs (since there are many shinning exceptions) ...but- there is no decent dinning value in Switzerland beyond Fondue and assorted star restaurants. I feel the same about most US places I've dinned in ( I used to do so professionally) . France and Italy are another matter. It's very easy to dine well there. I'm sure there are many parts of Europe that are great values as well. But who cares? We make our own glory here right ?  :thumbup:

Not to bad mouth Swiss Cuisine or Chefs (since there are many shinning exceptions) ...but- there is no decent dinning value in Switzerland beyond Fondue and assorted star restaurants. I feel the same about most US places I've dinned in ( I used to do so professionally) . France and Italy are another matter. It's very easy to dine well there. I'm sure there are many parts of Europe that are great values as well. But who cares? We make our own glory here right ?  :thumbup:
Anyway, This whole dinner was a mistake. I should have kown when the rolls arrived Stone Cold!!!

how far back did the "mistake" set you?

In all fairness. There was also an apetizer of salmon tartare (fancy words for diced smoked Salmon) but that was all. Pretty poor showing overall. I could never dine out regularly in Europe unless it was Italy/France/Spain/Portugal/England or very special Swiss Restaurants. I've never stayed in Germany so I can't vouch for that cuisine.
In the 80's I was a fulltime magazine photographer and traveled on assignment to shoot, Food, Fashion, Jewelry, Cars. I ate everything I shot in restaurants so yes- you could say I was paid to shoot and eat  ;) That's one of the many fringe bennies of shooting pro.

First time I tried cooking the Pot Roast. Cooked the Pot Roast for 3 hours. The meat came out very tender.  :thumbup:

Post by: Lightstream on March 03, 2006, 02:41:42 AM
Congratulations :)  slow cooking is a good way to get the meat to soften up. Over here, we buy tough cuts of ox tail at better prices, and then leave it in the slow cooker the whole day (up to 16 hours!) on automatic pilot.. the meat is ready to fall off the bone when it's done.

NO! Not studio prepped food pix. I wouldn't eat that stuff! I'm talking about restaurant plates that really are exactly what the dinner guest receives. Though you are clearly knowledgeable in this biz, do keep in mind that post 1986 or so, most serious food stylists stopped faking the sets and relied almost entirely on edible 'cheats'. Still, who wants to eat a RAW Turkey painted with dark Soy Sauce ? Or Ice cream made from corn-starch and milk. Yuck!
I was lucky, I got to travel to restaurants and discover new foods. Later, I took classes and cooking has been my avocation for a long time as a result.

I just made some yesterday too!

What did you use for yours?

I used a fatless escalope of beef that was on special offer. I soaked it in:
Soya Sauce
Thai Fish Sauce (basically anchovy essence)
Roughly ground black pepper
Sugar
Wine Vinegar
Fajita seasoning mix
Chopped garlic clove

I soaked it overnight and then dried it in the oven at around 60C for about five hours.  I had the oven door cracked open to allow the moisture to escape.

This was my first attempt and I was quite pleased with the result, as were the rest of my family.

Here's what's left

(http://i5.photobucket.com/albums/y165/Rebel-Yell/beef_jerky.jpg)

It's so dark because I used dark soya sauce. I think I'll use light next time to get a lighter colored meat.  The light colored specs are bits of garlic which are really tasty IMO.

Read this, it's quite interesting: http://www.theworldwidegourmet.com/cooking/sauces/nuoc-man.htm

I use Nuoc Nam in Western style cooking too to give flavour; the one I buy is just water and fish, it can add flavour to all kinds of cooking. Sprinkle some on a bland pizza for example.

Anchovy is also a major ingredient of Worcestershire Sauce.  I always wondered why it was so popular in Asian cooking, maybe that's part of the reason.

erns going Asian for a day? ;)

That is good stuff.. though the outer pastry housing looks a little bit too dry.

Post by: ernsanada on April 01, 2006, 05:20:34 AM

The outer bun part is very soft. The Chashu Bao is steamed. I like using soy sauce on the Chashu ( marinated pork).

You can get this in a smaller size at a Dim Sum Restaurant.

Thanks.. that's a good idea, to light it especially since we have so many nice lights.. so what'll it be, LED, HID, incandescent? I was actually in a hurry to, uhh, drink it. ;)

Hmm.. a Surefire P91 would improve the bubbles shot substantially. Will try it the next time.

And aren't you going to ask him whether he brought back any nice watches for you in return for your loan :icon_biggrin:

Let me help you with the spelling and meaning there.... it would be Weissbeir that letter that looks like a cursive upercase B is the German letter for "ss" .  THe modern grammar changes indicate that you should use "ss" instead - but most people still use the old style.

Also the meaning is not White Beer but Weizenbier is "wheat beer", a speciality of Bavaria (but drank everywhere....)

It can come crystal clear to cloudy - and the sediment that occurs often in a bottle is important for good vitamin nutrition!

Man, I'm seriously monolingual. I speak, write, and use *ONE* language and woe betide anybody else who tries to make me use another. :violent1: :violent1: (At least I use my only language well, which is more than some other people I've worked with can say.. both their first and second languages are half-baked.).

I should have caught the wheat beer part (I did actually know it's wheat) but after a few it all looks the same :icon_biggrin:

Cloudy is fine, it means they didn't filter it. My local microbrewery doesn't filter some of theirs, and that's fine with me. The mass-produced stuff is always clear, always filtered.

Er, both? I suppose one could easily make it oneself with any lemon-lime soda like 7-Up, a bit like a shandy I guess. But I was hoping to find something like Monteith's Radler (http://www.monteiths.co.nz/showroom/radler.html) locally. Haven't really gotten round to it as yet though.  :-[

Here's an interesting read about how it originated (http://www.csulb.edu/~parayner/Radler.html).

Actually I think it was around that time or so... & IIRC the one in the middle's Glenda Chong, ex-model now news reader although it doesn't really look like her there.

Another give-away is the Tiger beer now sports the new label. Can you believe that they are trying to sell the old labelled bottles off as 'limited editions' now for something like S$20 each! By the way, if you can get 15-20 buddies together, you can write to them for a guided tour of the brewery with unlimited tasting for S$5 a head I think.  ;)

I did get the opportunity to go - around a similar timeframe too, that's why I recognize the place. Was still below legal drinking age back then, so no getting plastered. of course now is a different situation (where I have to drink up to forget).

Okay, here's a question for you guys, it's going to sound stupid but I do have a reason for asking it--is chicken fried steak chicken or steak?  Now the reason being, if you read the name, it sounds like steak that's fried like chicken, but I have been to restaurants that serve it as chicken and I've been to restaurants that serve it as steak.  Because I don't eat red meat, I ask the waitress/waiter if it's steak or chicken, but always get these looks like I'm some kinda moron or something and I've asked people I know and get conflicting responses and usually people are absolutely certain of their answer.  I've stopped ordering it because I just don't want to ask the question anymore.

I was watcching the Food Channel about Chicken Fried Steak. The host said that the reason they call it Chicken Fried Steak is because the Round Steak is fried like chicken. The Round Steak uses the same batter as fried chicken.

Title: Re: Food Pictures
Post by: Lightstream on April 28, 2006, 05:13:22 PM
This is where I must acknowledge the Chinese "chu", the real, made-in-China-$1-per-bottle vinegar totally owns the British vinegar. The same vinegar you add to bak chor mee to give it the real kick. Their fish and chips is usually paired with either their wimpy vinegar and salt, or 'gravy', which is a generic brown gravy that isn't tremendously tasty.

My solution is to slop on the ketchup. :D  HEINZ OWNS ME!! Them Americans sure know how to make *REAL* honest-to-god ketchup.

Many years ago, I had fish and chips with the most awesome tartar sauce one could imagine.. sadly, when I went back there a couple of years ago, the whole place had gone to hell in a handbasket :(  (I brought a friend and I ended up being totally embarassed because of how bad it had become.. what a difference 7 years makes)

This is where I must acknowledge the Chinese "chu", the real, made-in-China-$1-per-bottle vinegar totally owns the British vinegar. The same vinegar you add to bak chor mee to give it the real kick. Their fish and chips is usually paired with either their wimpy vinegar and salt, or 'gravy', which is a generic brown gravy that isn't tremendously tasty.

My solution is to slop on the ketchup. :D  HEINZ OWNS ME!! Them Americans sure know how to make *REAL* honest-to-god ketchup.

Many years ago, I had fish and chips with the most awesome tartar sauce one could imagine.. sadly, when I went back there a couple of years ago, the whole place had gone to hell in a handbasket :(  (I brought a friend and I ended up being totally embarassed because of how bad it had become.. what a difference 7 years makes)

Mate.. what are the Australians famous for?

OK, we'll have to see what Safety1st or any of the other Brits have to say to that...  :P

Aussie food, hmmmm, Bar-B comes to mind though I learnt recently that the word itself & method of cooking actually probably originated in the West Indies -

'The Etymology of Barbecue

The roads of the Southern United States are lined with a succession of grinning pigs, advertising the availability of barbecue in countless restaurants. The origins of barbecue in the South, however, are traceable to a period long before the smiling pig became a fixture on Southern roadsides. The etymology of the term is vague, but the most plausible theory states that the word "barbecue" is a derivative of the West Indian term "barbacoa," which denotes a method of slow-cooking meat over hot coals. Bon Appetit magazine blithely informs its readers that the word comes from an extinct tribe in Guyana who enjoyed "cheerfully spitroasting captured enemies." The Oxford English Dictionary traces the word back to Haiti, and others claim (somewhat implausibly) that "barbecue" actually comes from the French phrase "barbe a queue", meaning "from head to tail." Proponents of this theory point to the whole-hog cooking method espoused by some barbecue chefs. Tar Heel magazine posits that the word "barbecue" comes from a nineteenth century advertisement for a combination whiskey bar, beer hall, pool establishment and purveyor of roast pig, known as the BAR-BEER-CUE-PIG (Bass 313). The most convincing explanation is that the method of roasting meat over powdery coals was picked up from indigenous peoples in the colonial period, and that "barbacoa" became "barbecue" in the lexicon of early settlers.'

It's "He just smiled and gave me a vegemite sandwich And he said,"   Here's the full lyrics.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Down Under

Traveling in a fried-out combie
On a hippie trail, head full of zombie
I met a strange lady, she made me nervous
She took me in and gave me breakfast
And she said,

"Do you come from a land down under?
Where women glow and men plunder?
Can't you hear, can't you hear the thunder?
You better run, you better take cover."

Buying bread from a man in Brussels
He was six foot four and full of muscles
I said, "Do you speak-a my language?"
He just smiled and gave me a vegemite sandwich
And he said,

"I come from a land down under
Where beer does flow and men chunder
Can't you hear, can't you hear the thunder?
You better run, you better take cover."

Lying in a den in Bombay
With a slack jaw, and not much to say
I said to the man, "Are you trying to tempt me
Because I come from the land of plenty?"
And he said,

"Oh! Do you come from a land down under? (oh yeah yeah)
Where women glow and men plunder?
Can't you hear, can't you hear the thunder?
You better run, you better take cover.

Don't know about any of you but I'm also a "garlicholic".

I just bought some of these from a market stall the other day.

(http://i5.photobucket.com/albums/y165/Rebel-Yell/garlic_marinate.jpg)

I'd already eaten half of them before I decided they needed photographing.  :D

If you love garlic these are seriously good.  Raw garlic cloves marinated in vinegar, oil and herbs. Not sure what the herbs are but I tasted Oregeno and Basil in there for sure.  :thumbup:

Garlic is so good that it might need a thread of its own.  ;)

Actually, there was this noodle place near where I work.. which served excellent noodles with plenty of RAW garlic on top of them. That's the only time you'd find me eating raw garlic.

As revenge for being FORCED to sit in certain meetings with certain unpleasant people, I'd order an extra big bowl at lunch....... :rotflmao:  hey, if I gotta suffer, the rest can, too!

The marinated garlic is quite mild and you wouldn't think you are munching on a raw garlic clove.  As much as I love garlic I'd be hard pressed to chew an entire raw clove. If you ever find these anywhere they are definitely worth a try.

I often crush raw garlic into salad or over pasta and sometimes I add it to a dish at the end of cooking to make the garlic flavour more potent.  It's very palatable raw when crushed (of finely chopped) and then mixed with something else.  Same with onions. I couldn't eat a raw onion but a finely sliced red onion mixed with tomatoes and olive oil tastes delicious.
Title: Re: Food Pictures
Post by: Lightstream on May 05, 2006, 02:16:45 PM
Oh yes, definitely. Garlic and onions need to complement other food. I often chop garlic and onions very finely and fry them with other food, meats, and so on. Try garlic steaks sometime, those can be really good, and produce Breath of Doom(tm) after that ;)

Coincidentally, I was at my father-in-law's place yesterday & he was eating a clove of pickled (I think) garlic as an appetiser befoe dinner. I didn't try one though.  :-[

Noodles with fried beancurd, roast pork, and some kind of dough bits that are deep fried till they are very crispy.

Green stuff is parsley, yellow is pure, RAW garlic that's been minced extremely fine. Pour in a good helping of black Chinese vinegar, the REALLY strong stuff, and you have one heck of a dish. :)

This was the one I mentioned earlier when talking about the garlic. Avoid eating this before afternoon meetings. So happened that I was not scheduled to talk to anybody in the afternoon so I decided to indulge..  but beware the flamethrowing garlic breath that will persist well into the EVENING!

If you haven't tried the genuine made-in-China-dollar-a-bottle stuff, you are really missing out. It's MUCH stronger than the stuff you usually get out in Europe or America, so go easy on it. I am used to the stuff so when I was eating fish n chips in UK, with their salt and vinegar fries, I was wondering why the vinegar was wimpy.. well, maybe it isn't, just that I like the strong stuff :icon_biggrin:  (this vinegar would complement the fries very well)

It was pretty good- in spite of the bland Prociutto . Then I just ate a Piadini stuffed with Ricotta, green olives, marinated garlic and mozzarella! Baked for 5 minutes to blend- very good !

Title: Re: Food Pictures
Post by: Aten_Imago on August 07, 2006, 03:28:58 PM
Yes sure. Here it is off the top of my head.

Pollo alla Cacciatore (Romana) in Tegame
Note: This dish is derrived from the use of Rabbit as the 'Game' meat. I adore rabbit and will always prefer to use it instead of the more universally popular chicken. your mileage may vary!
-----------------------------------
For one Medium chicken- serves 4-5
Ingredients:
1- Medium Chicken cut up into 12 pieces + gizzards (or equivilant)
2 Medium (sweet) Peppers - One Orange or Yellow & the Other Red (or equivilant)
1- Large Yellow or Vidalia onion (or equivilant)
4-Large Glaric Cloves (Crushed)
1 big pinch each of Oregano, Rosemary and Sage
1/4 tsp coarsely ground black pepper
2oz Red wine (I use Italian Table wine)
5 Tbsp Olive Oil
1 Tbsp Canola Oil
1 small can of tomato paste
5, overripe Italian tomatoes (quartered)
--------------------------------------------------
1- Thoroughly wash and cut up the chicken and remove the skin if you prefer ( I do). The classic recipe does not call for skin removal. Pat dry
2- start to Roast the Peppers till thier skins blacken and start to peel- allow to cool in a covered container for 10-15 minutes
3- Rough slice and cut the onion for 1/4"X1" pieces (set aside)
4- Cut up the tomatos and add to the onion (aside)
5- Pour 1Tbsp canola oil into a tegame - you can substitute a  flat bottomed Wok, deep fry pan etc. (traditionally the terra cotta tegame is placed on a roaring fire). I used an 20" Calphalon deep flat pan.
6- brown the chicken pieces on M/H (8 minutes)
7- Add the tomato/Onion mix - cook until chicken seems about 1/3 done and onions have cleared and start to brown (5 minutes)
8- Add tomato paste and spread evenly around
9- sprinkle all the herbs and black pepper
10- Once the chicken has rendered some moisture, add the olive oil and mix in well - turn heat down to M.
11- Add the wine, pouring it evenly around
12- Cover and turn heat down to L ( simmer for 10 minutes)
13-Meanwhile, deseed and de-stem the peppers ( saving the juice from inside). scrape off most of the charred skin ( DO NOT WASH WITH WATER). slice them lengthwise into 1/2" wide strips- add the stips to the simmering chicken.
(Use the pepper juice to moisten the chicken if is seems to be too thick a sauce)
14- Cook for 3- 5 more minutes on L and serve.

Serve over Pasta aldente. This is a regional dish and I usually serve it either with Parpardelle, Fetuccine or Strozzapreti . Alternatively it can go well with just sides of Grilled vegetables.

Note: Cacciatore means 'hunter' in Italian. Some people will not use the peppers and will use Funghi (mushrooms) instead. Roasted & saute Portabello or a few Morrel mushrooms for example.
Another variant will sustitute or supplement with black olives.

The 'Romana' in my version referes to the Emiglia Romagna region of Italy. For that, the Roasted Peppers are the signature.

In any case- Serve this with A robust Red ITALIAN wine such as a Chianti, Barollo , Sangiovese. A Merlot or Cabernet or even a Cab/Shiraz will do in a pinch.

Bon Apetito  :D  é Forza Azzuri !!!! :thumbup: :thumbup: :thumbup: :thumbup: :thumbup:

Aten, you are a professional chef the way i read the recipe and the picture of the dish. I do not cook much as my stuff always  the "finale" in the menu.

Few slices of Ciabatta or even Foccacia to clean up the plate !!!     :)

Kudos to you !!! I have worked with many Italian Chefs and they love to make their own bread and pasta as well. Desserts too.

I feel hungry already at 12.30am local time.  :drool:

Got this from my local Buddhist Church. They were having the annual " Obon " Carnival.

This is called Chirashi Rice. It is Sushi Rice with Kamaboko ( Fish Cakes ), Peas, Eggs, s**take Mushrooms, and Carrots.

Then it became too popular in the 80's and affordable shushi-worthy fish became untouchably expensive and rare- now I just eat it out and little of it is really very good :'(

Cool ! Mr.Sushi.

This is the "sweet" version that i 've done before but it's rather simply........ :-[

Still utilizing Japanese short grain but cooked with milk and a good dose of tahitian vanilla pod (split) till al dente. Sugar added last and leave to firm up alittle before shaping. Goes well with vanilla sauce or fruit coulis.

Recipe of Fruit Sushi ...coming soon.

Title: Re: Food Pictures
Post by: criollo on August 15, 2006, 11:09:28 AM
Recipe of Fruit Sushi

Ingredients
Japanese Short Grain 300gm, Caster Sugar 200gm, Milk (UHT is OK) 1000ml, Vanilla Pod (preferably Tahitian or Bourbon) 2 pieces. Neutral Fruit Gel - pectin based  Q.S (quantity sufficient), Strawberries/Mango/Kiwi  Q.S

Method
1) Soak rice in cold water for about half hour. (sufficient to cover). Drain to remove water and put milk, split vanilla pods and rice into a saute pan. (use a paring knife to remove the seed from the pods)

2) Bring to boil and stir continuously to prevent the rice from sticking to the bottom (low flame). When the rice is cooked (al dente), remove from stove and mix in the sugar. At this stage, remove the husk of the vanilla pods.

3) Pour into a bowl and cover with cling wrap and ensure that it's touching the surface to prevent skin from forming during the cooling process. You can sit the bowl on ice to cool. Keep in the fridge if want to shape the rice later.

4) To shape the cooked rice, scoop out with a spoon and shape with your palms (wear food grade rubber gloves!) to an elongated shape.

5) Slice fruit and trim to the size of the surface area of the sushi and lay on top. (Kiwi, Strawberry and Mango. I prefer soft fruit)

6) I use commercially sold neutral flavored fruit gel (pectin base) and add up to 50% water. Bring to boil and gently brush on the surface of fruit. Glazing is essential to hold, to impart a glossy sheen and to preserve the freshness of the cut fruit.

** You can use Apricot Jam to substitute. Again add water as described but do buy a firmer jam which should contain more pectin and holds better. If the jam is soft, use lesser water. A good method of testing is to drip a couple of drops after boiling, on a white porcerlain plate. Leave to cool a couple of seconds and touch with finger to feel if it's firm enough. If so, then it will be good for glazing.

** Yummy to eat with vanilla sauce or fruit coulis. By itself without any sauce....is still as yummy !!!   :toothy4:

Enjoy.   ;)

" Milk (UHT is OK) 1000gm"
Is that really 1000gm or 1000 ML (AKA 1 Liter)?
Thanks! :D

I marinated the ribs for 24 hours.

I took the other half of ribs to work today. I gave a couple of the ribs to my co-workers, they both said they tasted very good and were very tender.

One of my friends said he wanted to cook some in a couple of days.

I think any marinade will taste good. I am going to try to make some Teriyaki Baby Back Ribs next week.

When BBQ'd the ribs have a tendency to get kind of tough but cooking in the foil makes the meat get very tender .

So the leaves are edible? Do they exude any fragrance or flavor into the food they are wrapped in like the pandan (http://www.asiafood.org/glossary_2.cfm?wordid=3294) aka. Screwpine (http://sc.essortment.com/pandanleaf_pga.htm) leaves we use around here (mainly for flavoring & coloring)?

I pre-cooked 3 lbs of Ground Beef the night before. Chopped 1 whole onion and 1 green pepper. Added 4 cans of kidney beans and 4 cans of chopped tomatoes.

The Chili Beans takes 3 hours to cook.

I try not to view these photos unless I'm about to eat or have just done so. Even then it seems to kick up my hunger into the ravenous stage.

Ernsanada, all of you eat well. If that were me, you'd need a wide-angle lens to photograph me after several months of that! You present the food quite well, it just looks so good. I'm sure it's even better to be there!

Well I finally get to contribute more than just comments to this thread. Here are some shots of the sumptious Chinese New Year 'Lo Hei' or 'Yu Sheng' (Tossing the Raw Fish Salad) spread that was laid out by my very gracious hosts & that I was most privileged to partake of.

Here's the aforementioned 'Yu Sheng' salad - Raw Cobia sashimi fish slices, abalone slices, fish roe, finely sliced red chilis, cabbage, turnip, carrots, white radish, pomelo, crispy shrimp flour crackers, etc. Topped with a sweet, sour plum & 'secret' sauce, sesame seeds (or crushed peanuts). Everyone joins in to mix up all the ingredients & the higher you toss them, the more luck you will have!
(http://www.pbase.com/cyrilng/image/75430183.jpg)(http://www.pbase.com/cyrilng/image/75430184.jpg)

Assorted 'Ngor Hiang' (mixed five spice sausages).
(http://www.pbase.com/cyrilng/image/75430186.jpg)

Sauteed prawns on 'laksa' leaves (I think)
(http://www.pbase.com/cyrilng/image/75430188.jpg)

'Chap chai' (braised mixed vegetables)
(http://www.pbase.com/cyrilng/image/75430189.jpg)

'Ma Po Tofu' (soybean curd and minced meat in a spicy bean-based sauce)
(http://www.pbase.com/cyrilng/image/75430191.jpg)

Braised duck & hard-boiled eggs in soy sauce
(http://www.pbase.com/cyrilng/image/75430193.jpg)

Braised cabbage & pork
(http://www.pbase.com/cyrilng/image/75430195.jpg)

Salad with top shell (I think)
(http://www.pbase.com/cyrilng/image/75430198.jpg)

More mixed vegetables
(http://www.pbase.com/cyrilng/image/75430201.jpg)

Dry fried bee hoon (thin rice noodles) with fried shredded bean curd skin
(http://www.pbase.com/cyrilng/image/75430203.jpg)

Bamboo shoots with prawns
(http://www.pbase.com/cyrilng/image/75430205.jpg)

Assorted Chinese baked pastries
(http://www.pbase.com/cyrilng/image/75430206.jpg)

Assorted Chinese candies & sweetmeats
(http://www.pbase.com/cyrilng/image/75430208.jpg)

And the piece de resistance was this fabulous marzipan dark double chocolate chip cake that had LEDs embedded in it! (sorry no beam shots :P)
(http://www.pbase.com/cyrilng/image/75430210.jpg)

There were other delectable dishes not shown such as braised pig's trotters, roast pork, porkball soup, 'babi buah keluak (http://pachome1.pacific.net.sg/~ccchia/pict31.html)' (another acquired taste pork dish - hey, it is the Year of the Pig after all!)

Title: Re: Food Pictures

You would have to notice the knife.

Ok, so I've got a problem.

But do we really have to go into every little thing?

Can't a guy just post a simple picture of a mouth-watering slab of beef without being scrutinized?

Well?  Can't I?!  Well?!  Why does it always have to be this way!

(http://i6.photobucket.com/albums/y204/Regentag/Stuff/IMG_1170.jpg)

 :P

Good eyes, Brandon!  They see what is important in a scene, not the extraneous background noise (the pile of meat in this case).

I think you could call it Damascus...  sort of a San-Mai Damascus I suppose.  It's the 9" slicer from Shun (http://www.kershawknives.com/productdetails.php?id=261), and is made up of a VG-10 core clad with 32 layers of a (softer) stainless.  It is the best all-around carving knife I've got (2nd from the right in the photo), and beats out even the handmade customs.  The combination of materials and geometry is just perfect for the intended purpose.  Cuts like crazy, easy to touch up on a steel as well as sharpen properly on ceramic.  It made really quick work out of this slab, and it was pretty tough work - that top was crunchy, and the bottom was like a manhole cover :) ... it was awesome!

The other Shun knives are pretty sweet too - especially the Ken Onion designs, which just feel great in the hand and have the same terrific clad blade.  All from the folks at Kershaw, the home of Zero Tolerance knives.  The problem with kitchen knives from custom makers is that the stock tends to be too thick, which is ok for a cleaver but won't do at all for a slicer, or even a Chef's knife.  The equipment to flat-grind a large blade down to the nearly .01" required at the cutting edge is simply not within the reach of a custom maker, and to do so by hand without overheating the stock would require way, way too much time.  This is generally the case, although I did see a DDC on Alaska Gun which I'm sure - as with all things Strider - is the exception to the rule. ;)

Cheers,
Title: Re: Food Pictures

Today's Menu,  I cooked some Thin Sliced Ribeye Steak, Kamaboko, Red Onion and Green Onion in Sukiyaki Sauce.   :drool: :tongue9: :tongue8: :tongue7:

Oooh that does look tasty! there's nothing like sweetened soy sauce...did you make the sauce on your own? If not its real easy...lil soy sauce, sugar and Mirin and gently heat it up to dissolve the sugar :thumbup:

I bought the Sukiyaki Sauce at local Japanese Market called Marukai. You can probably purchase the Sukiyaki Sauce at any market that sells Oriental Food. My market had about 4 different brands.

yeah that pre-made sauce works but also if you want precise control over the flavor...its only made up of 3 ingredients(give or take)...soy sauce, sugar and the magic ingredient Mirin
a little goes a long way with it

I use 2 Carroll Shelby's Chili Mix and you can contol how much hotness you want. The mix comes with a small package of Cayenne Chili Powder. I use only a half pack for the whole pot. This amount makes the Chili very mild.

Oh yeah I love Gyoza! For the sauce just some soy sauce with a little rice wine vinegar is an awesome hassle free dipping sauce. And if you make em in batches of 50-75-100 you can just wrap em in a lil saran-wrap and freeze em. They'll store well in the freezer for a good while.

Oh its not that I can't handle the spicy taste...I'm just in a ton of pain for ~3hrs after I thought the milk was for the burning in your mouth situation? or does it work inside as well...if it even slightly helps inside I'd be willing to try
Oh and as a side benefit...I'm lactose intolerant also lol :'(
