Shinae Choi Robinson892,554*HOW COOKALONGS WORK:* http://ridiculoushungry.blogspot.com/p/cookalongs.html Hey, Cookalong Peeps! Since we voted overwhelmingly for African cuisine for this Cookalong, African it is! As you can imagine, with Africa being vast as it is, we are really just getting our feet wet with this month’s recipes, but I’ve tried to come up with two separate balanced menus, and choose solid recipes that appeal to a wide range of palates, for you to cook from. Both meals are totally adaptable to make with or without meat. I think you’ll find the ingredients fairly accessible and inexpensive for the most part, but if you have any questions as to substitutions, I am happy to call upon the collective wisdom of our foodnik community to help you find a solution. _As always, if you'd like to share an African dish in the event that's not on the menu, please include a description of the dish in the comments under your photo. If you can provide a recipe, even better. :)_ So with no further ado: *SUGGESTED MENU 1* - *AFRICAN GROUNDNUT (PEANUT STEW* (_maafe/maffé_) - I’ll link to both a chicken and a vegetarian recipe. If you prefer seafood, that’s an easy substitution, but you would add the protein MUCH later in the cooking process. *Recipes:* https://plus.google.com/u/0/105466596306740968847/posts/8hHzsrrbwbM - *PLAIN STEAMED LONG GRAIN OR _JOLLOF_ RICE WITHOUT ADDITIONAL PROTEIN* (West African rice pilaf) Jollof Recipe: http://www.huffingtonpost.ca/2013/03/28/recipe-for-jollof-rice-t_n_2972442.html - *_YE'ABESHA GOMEN_* (Ethiopian Collard Greens) Recipe: http://www.saveur.com/article/Recipes/Yeabesha-Gomen-Ethiopian-Collard-Greens - *BANANA FRITTERS* (which I think will go beautifully with a little vanilla bean ice cream and a drizzle of honey) Recipe: http://www.epicurious.com/recipes/food/views/Banana-Fritters-104781 *SUGGESTED MENU 2* - *CHICKEN OR VEGETABLE TAGINE* (if you don’t have a tagine, that’s fine - you can just use a Dutch oven or stockpot). Recipes: https://plus.google.com/u/0/105466596306740968847/posts/DtwL9aNRqrU - *BASIC COUSCOUS* (You might like to add toasted nuts such as almonds, pistachios, or pine nuts and a little bit of chopped dried fruit such as apricots, raisins, currants, figs or dates. A handful of chopped green onions is always a nice addition, too.) Recipe: http://www.food.com/recipe/basic-couscous-226294 - *MOROCCAN ROASTED VEGETABLES* Recipe: http://recipes.sparkpeople.com/recipe-detail.asp?recipe=738388 - Storebought baklava or maybe a simple dried fig and apricot compote over vanilla bean ice cream/storebought cake or cheesecake  *MUSIC WHILE YOU COOK* We are in luck as youtube has Putumayo’s Acoustic Africa, which is a great sampling of tracks by artists from all over the continent, in a continuous playlist! I hope you enjoy: http://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL2125813ABF64ACE4 Stay tuned for recipe links and more information! :) #SFPCookalong13  African Food Cookalong2013-04-21 09:00:0047

Jenni Field47,483If light and airy desserts aren't your style, how about something sweet, dark and just a bit on the spicy side to finish off your Valentine's Meal?  Sound good? Then you'll definitely want to *join me for my Chocolate-Chile Pots de Creme demo on Tuesday, February 12 at 3pm EST*! Most pots de creme are baked in a water bath. This one is a stirred custard that softly sets as it cools in the fridge.  It's rich and decadent, so a little goes a long way. If you own a pots de creme set (here are some examples: http://www.potsdecreme.com/pdc_museum.asp ), by all means serve it in them.  If not, cordial glasses, espresso cups or shot glasses will work. You could even layer some in champagne glasses along with some berries and/or some cream. However you serve them, you really *should* give these guys a try. Your Valentine will thank you. Here's the recipe, just to get you primed! http://pastrychefonline.com/2009/01/15/its-time-for-something-hot/ #valentinesday   #ValentinesHOA #valentinesdessert #PotsdeCreme  Chocolate-Chile Pots de Creme2013-02-12 21:00:0028

Preheat oven to 350 degrees 1 c granulated sugar (brown sugar also works well in this recipe) 1/2 cup brown rice flour 1/4 cup cornstarch 2 T sweet rice flour 1/2 cup cocoa powder 3/4 tsp baking soda 3/4 tsp baking powder (I use double acting) 1/2 tsp salt 1/2 tsp xantham gum whisk all dry ingredients together in a large bowl, then add wet ingredients 1 egg, lightly beaten 1/2 cup non-dairy milk (use anything except coconut milk -- it will change the texture of your cakes) 1/4 cup vegetable oil 1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract 1/2 cup hot coffee Portion into a standard muffin tin, filling each well no more than 1/2 full.  Bake at 350 degrees for 15-18 minutes. Remove from oven and let cool completely before icing. Ganache: Place 1 package Enjoy Life chocolate chips (283 grams) in a medium bowl.  Heat 200 grams coconut milk (1/2 tin) to a boil, either in the microwave or on the stovetop.  When just boiling, pour over the chocolate chips, cover and let stand for 10 minutes.  After 10 minutes, whisk the ganache together until it is smooth and glossy.  Let cool at room temperature for about 15-30 minutes if you are going to use it as a glaze. OR for 60-90 minutes if you are going to whip it and use as a frosting. Fill a piping bag with the ganache and pipe onto your cupcakes!!! .... now go and share one with someone you love :)Valentines Chocolate Cakelets (Gluten-free and Dairy-free!)2013-02-12 02:00:0027  
Jenni Field47,483The perfect light end to a potentially rich Valentine's meal, a *Pavlova* is a wonderful way to showcase seasonal fruit, whipped cream and crunchy-spongy meringue.  Red berries go nicely with the Valentine's theme, and you can certainly do that, but _blood oranges are in season right now_, and I thought I'd capitalize on their deep red goodness.  Plus, orange and cream is a wonderful combination! Join me on *Monday, February 11, 2013 at noon EST* while I demonstrate piping the merinuge shells, macerating the fruit, making a creamy filling and then putting the whole dish together. Once you realize how easy and "doable" this is, it might just become your go to romantic dessert! Here's my video for _Roses and Berries Pavlova_ which will give you a nice preview of what to expect on Monday. I do hope you will be able to join me! http://pastrychefonline.com/2011/02/14/pmat-live-episode-14-roses-and-berries-pavlova/ #ValentinesHOA #cookingdemo #valentinesday #valentinesdessert  Individual Blood Orange Pavlovas for #ValentinesHOA2013-02-11 18:00:0029

Jenni Field47,483Please check this link to find what time this event will be live where you live:  http://www.timeanddate.com/worldclock/fixedtime.html?msg=SuperBowlPlus+Week+of+Champions%3A+Homemade+Pimento+Cheese&iso=20130131T14&p1=207 As a kid growing up in the south, *pimento cheese* was a staple. It made appearances in everything from good old white bread sammiches to grilled cheese (it makes The Best) to macaroni and cheese to a Mighty Fine burger topping.  Two brands set the standard in our house and were widely available at every grocery store. There were even commercials with catchy jingles. And then one day, all the moms in the neighborhood started buzzing about _making pimento cheese from scratch in their new and shiny food processors._ Game on, people!  Whose mom's was better? Whose mom's tasted most like the types sold in those small plastic tubs?  Each kid thought that their mom's version was the best. And each kid was right, because at the end of the day, you love your mom's cooking, right? If you've never had *pimento cheese*, you are in for a treat. Easy to make with as few as 3-4 ingredients or a little more upscale with upwards of 10-12 ingredients, it's still good Southern food. And still, mom's is best. *Join me on Thursday, January 31 at 2pm EST* I'll walk you through the ingredient list of the Big Two, which are still in stores in the south today.  You'll soon understand why making your own is the way to go. (Sorry, brands of my childhood. I'm just not that into you anymore). So, I'll show you how to make your own. Serve it spread on bread or crackers. Put it in a crock and heat it up until it's all bubbly and then dip pita chips in it.  Either way, _there's no denying the Power of Pimento Cheese._ So good you might even look away from the game (or the commercials depending on your focus) to make sure you pile your chip high and don't waste a single morsel!

Chef Dennis Littley874,660Join me as we learn to make Cannoli's!  I might even have a few extra tips on how to make them even more festive, so you better not miss my #Holidayhangout  ! Cannoli Cream 1 cup marscapone 1 cup ricotta cheese 1/3 cup super fine sugar 1 tbsp lime zest (lemon or orange is ok) 1 tsp pure vanilla extract 1/2  cup bitter sweet chocolate (chopped into small bits, or use mini chocolate chips) 12 large cannoli shells 1.  Drain ricotta very very well, it must be extremely dry, if possible make your own ricotta.  2.  Mix ricotta and mascarpone together until blended, do not overmix 3.  Add in superfine sugar, lime zest, vanilla, and mix until blended. 4.  Add in chocolate and stir to blend 5.  Place cream mixture into refrigerator until ready to use 6.  Place cannoli cream into pastry bag (or ziplock bag with end snipped off) and pipe into cannoli shells. The secret to keeping your cannoli filling thick and not having it get watery is using  Superfine Sugar,  Most recipes will call for confectioners sugar, but an old Italian Grandmother told me her secret, and it works!  If you can’t find Superfine (aka Bar Sugar) you can always pulse your regular sugar in your food processor for a bit, just don’t pulse too much or you’ll end up with 10x. #Holidayhangout   #holidayhangout   #italianpastry  Holiday Hangout - Let's Make Cannoli's2012-12-21 00:00:0034

Vegan stuffed green peppers

topped with vegan mozzarella. The filling for these is a simple combo of cooked quinoa, onions, garlic, diced peppers and tomatoes, seasoned with basil and oregano. I'm testing out a few different approaches re. vegan cheese - happy with the taste of this one, as well as the fact that the emulsion remains stable. but would like to see it be a bit more melty.

So awesome to see a commitment to excellence recognized! Cliff Leir`s new resto Agrius gets a rare 4-star review by the Globe and Mail!

... and great to see +Adam Bonneau​ mentioned for the beverage programme

"Agrius – which might very well be the only small (36-seat) restaurant in all of British Columbia that boasts a full-time butcher on staff – purchases the lambs whole (same with its Stillmeadow Farm chickens and pigs) and processes them at the back of the kitchen"  - also has opted out of working with large wholesale suppliers like Sysco

Making buttercream ... you just need to remember 1:2:3

1 part egg white, 2 parts sugar and 3 parts butter - works for either Swiss buttercream or Italian buttercream (today's frosting).

For italian buttercream, you need to convert the sugar to a syrup, cooked to 240F and then slowly drizzled into the mixer with the egg whites beaten to soft peaks. (start beating your whites when the syrup hits about 200F). I like to add a bit of water to the sugar, just to dissolve the sugar fully - don't worry, it will cook off as the syrup heats up.

Once you have added all the syrup, keep beating the meringue until it holds stiff peaks (see the meringue on the beater?) and is completely cooled.  If you are adding extracts, add them now.  Adding flavourings or anything with oils? add them after you add the butter.

Turn the mixer to medium speed, and then add your butter in small pieces, until it is smooth and fluffy. There will be a point where it looks like its breaking, but just keep beating and it will come together. Cardinal rule of buttercreams is When in doubt, beat it for a couple more minutes

Buttercream keeps in the fridge, and also freezes. To use it, give it a quick turn in the mixer before you use it.___

I'm making #vegan  enchiladas later this afternoon for a client, and I'll probably make a few tacos for #tacotuesday  for us, so we've got a wee stack of tortillas whipped up - I just did them on the griddle since the stovetop had the burners free.

Homemade tortillas 1) taste better than storebought and 2) are way bendier b/c they are fresh!, and 3) really don't take that long to make. 

I always have a bag of Maseca Masa Harina in the pantry - proportions are right on the bag 2c masa harina to 1.5 c water, pinch of salt if you want.  It takes a few minutes to knead, and for best results let it rest covered with a damp tea towel for about 30-60 minutes to fully hydrate.  You'll find it way easier to press them out with the tortilla press.  If you don't have one, you can roll them, or if you're really tricksy, you can shape them by hand!

Making cookies is harder than you think ... Strike that, making sweet cookie shaped discs of dough is easy, but making a really great cookie that causes peoples eyes to light up when they bite into one, is hard.

And making one that does all that, and is #glutenfree and #vegan (but makes you forget it is all those things!) Is fucking hard! But feels fantastic when you dial it in. Taste AND texture have to be on point.

These pumpkin spice muffins also make a lovely cake recipe.  The pumpkin makes for a beautiful fluffy texture - the exact same recipe for the muffin batter below.  Double the recipe below, and increase the sugar 1.5 x for enough batter for 3 8" layers

The spirit of pumpkin spice past is alive and well!

These pumpkin spice muffins and nice and moist, and can be made filled with about 1 tsp cream cheese icing, or plain.  I like to sprinkle the tops with a bit of pearl sugar, but you could also top them with a bit of streusel crumbs.

makes 12 muffins
240 grams bread flour blend OR GF flour of your choice
1/2 tsp xanthan gum (omit if your blend has binders already)
1/2 tsp sea salt
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp ground ginger
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1/2 tsp allspice
200 grams granulated sugar
125 grams canola oil (or other neutral oil)
400 grams canned pumpkin
2 large eggs
small amount of cream cheese frosting (my recipe here: http://realfoodmadeeasy.ca/2014/06/cream-cheese-frosting/ )

Combine dry ingredients in a medium bowl and whisk to mix.
Add the sugar, and wet ingredients and mix well. if you are filling these, scoop 2 T muffin batter into your muffin tin, pipe 1 tsp frosting into the centre, and top with the remaining muffin batter.  Otherwise, fill with approx 1/3 c batter for each muffin (I use as #12 scoop).  Sprinkle the tops with pearl sugar.
Bake at 350F for 22-25 minutes.  The muffins will be done when the cream cheese filling just starts to bubble out.___These pumpkin spice muffins also make a lovely cake recipe.  The pumpkin makes for a beautiful fluffy texture - the exact same recipe for the muffin batter below.  Double the recipe below, and increase the sugar 1.5 x for enough batter for 3 8" layers

A bit of leftover pastry = a Hazelnut Frangipane Pear tart for dessert, with a dollop of yogurt.

Frangipane is dead easy to make in the food processor, with your favourite nuts. I used Hazelnut here, but almonds are more commonly used.

Equal weights of blanched nuts, sugar, butter and eggs. Top with season fruit and bake at 350f until slightly firm to the touch.

Did you know you can make chocolate ganache with water? Well yes, you can! This batch of ganache is going on top of these grain-free cupcakes for someone following an anti-inflammatory diet, who also has sensitivity to most foodstuffs one would make non-dairy mylks from.

The benefit of using water (or tea, or spice infusions, you can see the possibilities are endless here!), is that it really allows the flavour of the chocolate to stand front and centre.

This works best if you melt the chocolate first, and then gradually add the water (just off the boil is best). Just add a little bit at a time, whisking as you go, and you will see it becomes nice and glossy, just like ganache made with dairy. As it cools, it will thicken up.

I've used Enjoy Life chocolate, as soy was one of the problem ingredients for this person - it sets up fairly easy.

For this batch, I used 500g chocolate and 150 grams water.___

Mushroom ragout with spaghetti squash - one of yesterday's #glutenfree #vegan dishes that I think would be a dandy pie filling :)

rough proportions:
1 cup onions, small dice
2-3 cloves garlic, minced
3 large King mushrooms, small dice
approx 1 cup shitake mushrooms, sliced (dried and soaked, OR fresh)
1 1/2 c savoy cabbage, finely chopped
2 T tomato paste
1 tsp Herbs de Provence
1 pint cherry or grape tomatoes, halved
salt, pepper to taste
water as needed

Taco Tuesday

Thanks +Rick Bayless for the recipe for Chorizo-potato Tacos.  We had to improvise a bit as the only #glutenfree  sausages I could rustle up on my way home were mild Italian sausages, so we jazzed them up with some cumin, coriander and smoked paprika.  TAcos on Blue Corn tortillas because I got another bag of that blue masa :)

Someone snapped a shot of lunch at the goddess gathering on Sunday.   it was held at a the gorgeous Sanctuary out at Sleeping Dog Farm here in Victoria, and the sun came out in time for everyone to enjoy lunch on the patio!  

I made up multigrain wraps with red lettuce, spiced spaghetti squash, pickled fennel, tomatoes and fermented cashew cream.  Shredded kale and carrot salad with orange vinaigrette, Rosewater-lime-pistachio cookies, and Hibiscus flower tea.  All #vegan  and #glutenfree

Jeffrey and I were just listening to BlackStar today and revelling in its Bowie-ness.

go home Murrica, you're drunk

This is why I haven't been reading the news much these days - stories like this pain my psyche :/

... coupled with the hateful troll-some comments, defenders of cosby, gun-control trashers and general fuck-upery of the human condition that seems to be the news du jour, I truly don't know what reaction is most appropriate - whether to run out into the street and scream, or retreat to a remote island homestead with my shibas.

Be warned, my mood is tinged with with the blackness all of this, so if ya'all presume I need educating on some of these topics, my responses are likely to be sharp, pointy and completely unfiltered.

Clear skies with a chance of Aurora borealis tonight!

This far south, I doubt we'll get the colour range you see when you are up past the Arctic circle, but the prospect of seeing some down here is pretty exciting! 

Wishing everyone here a Happy New Year and all the best for the Year ahead!

i'm thinking about making Australian meat pies - the thought of a shortcrust bottom and puff pastry top is appealing.  Is there anything else that is unique about these? sekrit family recipes to share?

Playing around in the kitchen today with yeasted cakes - this one rose for about 24 hours before going in the oven - surprisingly light texture, and I think we may have a template for how to make beautifully light #glutenfree Bienenstich
