Paneer is one of the simplest of cheeses to make – usually found in curries, here I’ve made a salad out of paneer curds and sauteed spinach – an alternative saag paneer, if you will.
I felt all European after being the runner-up at the Euro Blog awards. To celebrate, I made potato flammekueche, a speciality from Alsace and, yes, kind of like a thin crust pizza.
A travel theme for Sugar High Fridays actually inspired me to make an apple crumble with an almond topping, something that was really very close to home…
The potato milkshake – does the concept scare you? It scared some of the people at the guilty pleasures party I attended, but they drank it and lived to tell the tale. Elvis bread, on the other hand, they had no problem with!
You may call it compôte, I call it stewed fruit – lovely orangey stewed rhubarb in this case. The names conjure up very different mental images, though, in the end, they do all taste the same.
I finally tried Jim Lahey’s no knead bread and boy was I glad I did – best looking crust I ever produced!
Potatoes, it seems, are an entirely worthy subject for poetry and kimchi, it turns out, is an entirely worthy accompaniment to chips. Could these things be related?
This recipe for homemade Korean kimchi may not be entirely authentic, but the fermented cabbage result is fab all the same.
