From the Kitchen playtime this morning....

🍲 I was up early enough to put the soup on before other things got in the way. Today it is Butternut, Celeriac and (the rest of the) Jicama. The idea came from The French Market Cookbook, by Clotilde Dusoulier, but it is a fairly simple French soup so I had to up the ante with some warming spices and lots of herbs.

📚 I was a bit disappointed in this book when I got it quite a few years ago now. The recipes are overly simple. Dusoulier used to have a blog (, and this book was a spin-off from there. I bought it because I am attracted to Market cookbooks. Still, the book is perfect for inspiration.

🇮🇳 Later today I hope to have time to make Crunchy Chana Dal Patties with Coconut and Sesame Seeds (Masala Chana Bada) from The Art of Indian Vegetarian Cooking by Yamuna Devi. This book is huge, and a classic. Recipes never fail.

:pumpkin_tired: Yesterday I had a prep day. Brussels sprouts roasted with lots of lemon juice and almost the last of the home made cherry jam. Brussels are a little bitter, so they can take some tart sweetness (my jams are always on the tart side). They are delicious, and altho they are supposed to be used during the week, I couldn't help having a small bowl to myself.

:pumpkin_tired: The huge butternut from next door was cut yesterday. I roasted a pan full until caramelised for risotto later this week. Another 1/3 went into the soup. I have the base left. I can't help thinking I will clean it out, roast it and stuff it.

:pumpkin_tired: This is such a terrific pumpkin, I have savved the seeds, will clean them and plant next season.

:pumpkin_tired: Also, I pre-cooked some freekeh (also so delicious I snuck a couple of tablespoons) for a pilaf or salad, plus it makes great toppings for soups etc.

Random reminder: "cooking is an art; baking is a science" is for cowards. People don't understand baking and think a recipe is set in stone. They never learn to bake. It's like being at a complete loss when your car gets a flat tire. These are SKILLS.

People baked without recipes for eons. Recipes for the masses are really only about as old as the Victorian era. Even though recipes existed before then, they were by the rich, for the rich.

Now can you replace every last ingredient and have it work? No! Of course not! Ultimately, there is chemistry involved. But that doesn't mean there isn't also artistry. Make the recipe once and start tweaking from there.

Ultimately, a recipe is a guide to make a thing successfully. Your personal choices make a thing YOURS.

I didn't take photos last night, but I can say that if you're ever making #carbonara, absolutely use guanciale if you can find it. We got some from Adam's Continental at Carole Park, if you're nearer the #Brisbane CBD I'm told Fruity Capers at Toowong usually have it.

The flavour is wild. Smoky and rich and delicious. An incredible depth of flavour compared with ham, pancetta or bacon, and the smoky fat makes the sauce incredibly silky. It's the first time I've found/used guanciale and I'm never going back. We used Coles brand fresh pappardelle last night too - home made would have been better* but even the cheap stuff was so much lovelier than dried pasta. And of course proper parmigiano reggiano.

*but who's got time and bench space?

Yum - if you're in the northern hemisphere with summer headed this way, and you grow things, you should plant yourself some #sorrel. It makes a brilliant creamy sauce, that tastes so fresh and great. Great in soup too I hear.

To Tempt or Inspire .....

There are not many traditional cuisines in India that include soup, with an exception of shorba's in North India and Rasam's (not really a soup) in South India.

Indeed, many Indian people I have mentioned it to have averred there are no soups in India.

On one of my last trips, tho, we were served tiny cups of soup at the end of the meal - they were simple, unspiced morsels of deliciousness (and we'd often have 2 or more). A "shot" of soup, a bit like the tiny cups of chai on roadside stalls.

But the Goan Portuguese/ Catholic cuisine is another exception - there are simple, home-fare soups full of flavour. In fact you can say that the flavour goes beyond what you expect from the ingredients. These are cheap and every-day dishes, quickly and easily made, yet comforting and filling.

This #soup, Sopa de Legumes, is a vegetable soup that is pureed and then greens and dried legumes added – chickpeas or white beans or any dried pea or bean that you have on hand.

When I made this one, I used a stock that included mushrooms, so the dish is a little darker than normal. Usually it takes the colour from the vegetables you use – varying from white if only potatoes are used, to yellow-orange from carrots and pumpkin.

It is also probably meant to be eaten in small amounts, but I eat it Western style.

Honest, healthy, home-cooked deliciousness.

From the Kitchen yesterday...

I managed to spend a little time in the kitchen yesterday, with some varying results.

🍞 To go with our soup, I made Garlic and Rosemary Focaccia. I use the fool-proof recipes from Gennaro's Italian Bakery by Gennaro Contaldo. So far all the bread, pizza and focaccia recipes in this book have been a huge success. This was no exception. It was glorious!

🍞 Breakfast today will feature left-over focaccia, split and toasted. Some fried red and green tomatoes.

🍅 Back to yesterday, breakfast was #Ottolenghi's Scrambled Tofu recipe, from Simple. I've mentioned before that it is made from silken tofu, which gives the dish a deliciously creamy texture. Today I made it with caramelised onions, sauteed green tomatoes and tofu, topped with crispy fried shallots, garlic black beans, and my tomato-chilli jam.

:nocookie: In an effort to use up some Golden Syrup I made some old-school biscuits that used a whole cup of GS. I was very sceptical it would work - basically sugar, GS and loads of butter, tied together with a little flour and dried ginger. But I was curious too. Curiosity satisfied - they are the most not-delicious foods I have had in a long time 😭 Perhaps it was meant to be 1 Tblspoon instead of a cup. That would make more sense.

☕ I am still coffee-free for the moment. That means I am using up all the green teas and spiced teas at home at a great rate (I have inlaws who regularly bring back teas from Hong Kong). Still, each day I think about whether I should have a cup of coffee. (On the rare occasion I am in a cafe I am Ok to have a decaf, so not 💯 coffee-free.)

🛌 I sleep a little better though. Not :100a: but better.

That’s two eggs fried, soft, with the yolks running on the plate, toasted homemade ciabatta with butter, and sliced ribeye cooked medium-rare, with chimichurri. 

It’s important the chimichurri comes to room temperature before serving (presuming you use refrigerated leftovers as I did!). Steak cooks most evenly when at room temperature too, making this a good late-breakfast day when you don’t have any rushes in the morning.

Redbud flower and ramp pickle (adapted after “amazu shoga” Sakai, p.87) with southern magnolia flower, American spikenard and rat’s tail radish.

Allium tricoccum, Aralia racemosa, Cercis canadensis, Magnolia grandiflora, Raphanus sativus var caudatus (nonnative)

#gardening #GrowYourOwn #organic #permaculture #NativePlants #FoodSecurity #cooking #bloomscrolling #florespondence #vegan

A black background and a black speckled plate. On the plate are three white magnolia petals of different sizes. They have a pink puddle of pickled redbud flowers sitting in the natural curve of the petals. Between the petals are long thin rat tail radish pods that are dark pink and green and a cut stem of 3 leaves of a spikenard plant. 

Pickle was fine. It didn’t taste as sweet probably bc of the ramp. Very piquant but nice. Has more possibilities. 

Magnolia flower raw tastes like pine-sol then like rose then like ginger. It’s very pungent but doesn’t leave a lingering aftertaste. Definitely not for eating raw. Will try a blanching, steaming and pickling recipe if I can find more flowers that are low enough to reach. 

Spikenard leaf was like a faint mint with some anise and lettuce. It was ok. Better as a mixed green then a bunch by itself. The stalks were too fibrous to steam/boil even though they were very thin. 

Rats tail radish tastes like a tame radish, kinda nice. Like if a sugar snap was daikon flavored.

Good morning. ☕☕☕

My wife is home from Geogia, maybe I won't eat ramen tonight. I won't say I can't cook at all but if I had a specialty, it would be hotdogs, macaroni and cheese (with Velvetta), and pork and beans - I'd slice up a tomato on the side to make it wholesome. Let's just say I don't like to cook, I wish I did, but I don't. Years ago, decades in fact, I was home with kids my wife still hadn't come home, so I made stuffed bell peppers. I mixed some rice with ground beef and onions, stuffed it in the peppers and into the oven. Who would have thought that you're supposed to cook the rice first. They weren't too bad, a bit crunchy. When my wife got home, the kids asked her if they had to eat it.

Theses pelicans are flying away and to the left in this photograph.  Each bird has a yellow bill, white body, and wings with black tipped flight feathers.  The sky is blue.
"A huge waterbird with very broad wings, a long neck, and a massive bill that gives the head a unique, long shape. They have thick bodies, short legs, and short, square tails. During the breeding season, adults grow an unusual projection or horn on the upper mandible near the tip of the bill. Adult American White Pelicans are snowy white with black flight feathers visible only when the wings are spread. A small patch of ornamental feathers on the chest can become yellow in spring. The bill and legs are yellow-orange. Immatures are mostly white as well, but the head, neck, and back are variably dusky." -

My latest pizza sauce experiment was a hit with my neighbour.

For a 12” pizza, it’s 3 tablespoons of heavy cream, a grated large garlic clove — not chopped or minced, but rather microplaned, so the flavour goes through the cream — about 1/4 teaspoon of Calabrian chili crisp, and salt.

Gotta mix it and let it sit for an hour so the flavours really meld. You’ll be surprised how much garlic flavour you get from a single large clove doing it this way. #pizza #sourdough #cooking #food

Today’s #GluttonyWithUmbrage concerns the greatest dish ever invented: fried rice. I’ve been gourmetting for 40 years but somehow decent, authentic-tasting fried rice has always eluded me in my own kitchen. Until I took a couple of tips from J.Kenji Lopez-Alt A few years ago I followed his recipe to the letter before adding my own tweaks, and the results were as close to restaurant quality as I’ve ever gotten. The main changes for me were:

1. Using fresh-cooked rice that I dried out on a half-sheet under a fan for 20 minutes.
2. Frying the rice separately in batches, in a cheap, well-seasoned carbon steel flat-bottom wok* over the >>HIGHEST GODDAM HEAT POSSIBLE<<, using heat-compatible oil, until there were little char-marks on about half the grains.
3. Frying the vegetables separately until also charred on the edges
4. Salting the mixture with Maldon, then using just enough soy sauce for flavor.

All this produces the best fried rice I’ve ever made, by a factor of at least 147. Highly recommend a few generous squirts of La-Yu hot oil at the table. #cooking

* if you’re leery of carbon steel, just get a tube of Crisbee Cream cast iron seasoning and follow the easy instructions on the label. It’s a game-changer.

Time for an #introduction! I am a #UU #UnitarianUniversalist clergyperson, a #Druid of the AODA, a spiritual director, and a scholar working on my PhD (having already done a DMin). I love #cooking, #gardening, #fiberarts, working out, and living quietly & sustainably in the woods.

I’m slowly building a public scholarship presence beyond my congregation and religious communities, including work supporting activism around #climatechange #sustainability #JEDI #queerness and #sexualfreedom.

I have made a strictly non canon roasted onion, potato and feta tortilla and I want to live amongst its caramelised peaks. #food #cooking

Close up of a baked onelette with big chunks of feta, potato and onion browned at the edges.
Wider shot of the tortilla that could easily feed four but will actually feed three greedy people. It's ona large yellow dinner plate, hanging over the edges a little. It's nicely browned with big chunks of feta studded into the top.

Pizza night! #Sourdough crust, mozzarella. There’s a base made with heavy cream and Calabrian chili crisp, and it’s topped with walnuts, Italian sausage, and leeks. #pizza #cooking

Pizza as described — Neapolitan style, uncut, generously topped, sitting on a bamboo cutting board

I am a baking fiend lately. I made ciabatta last weekend and loved it so I’m trying again this week. But every time I lift the lid on the dough, it smells like roasted peppers, since I apparently didn’t clean it as well as I thought. 😶

BUT THIS COULD BE A BEAUTIFUL MISTAKE, we don’t know. I will find out when the new batch bakes tomorrow.

Anyhow, it has been a tasty week of sandwiches.

EIGHT beautiful golden ciabatta buns dusty with semolina on a cooling rack
Breakfast panini with grill marks on said ciabatta filled with some scrambled egg, tomatoes, crispy thin chorizo, and a space mayo with Calabrian chili crisp
A double-schnitzel ciabatta sandwich with spicy mayo, mustard, red onion and avocado, halved, next to a hefty salad of homegrown frisée with blackened corn, red onions, avocado tomato and dressing
A mixed greens salad (homegrown!) with soft poached egg on top, shaved Parmesan, and crispy bacon, and a lightly toasted halved ciabatta sandwich with bacon, tomato and spicy mayo

The last step of the New Orleans #cooking class: I pulled out the #beignet (zepolli) batter and fried them up tonight. Even better with the strawberry sauce.

Two dozen brown lumps of spiced dough cool on a wire rack, covered with powdered sugar.
A fork dips one small beignet into a bowl of strawberry sauce.

#3GoodThings @3goodthings

1. Another beautiful spring day in Southeast #Michigan
2. About half of my snap peas have survived the cutworm attack. Organic #gardening is an act of hope.
3. I tried a new NYTimes #Cooking recipe. And although it wasn't a good one, I give myself points for branching out and trying something different.
